Topic: Water proofing during construction and painting

Hi,

My house is now in brick work stage. I want to know what can be done up front for proper water proofing of walls. For slab, we bought some liquid and mixed it with the concrete. Hence I am assuming the slab is more or less water proof.

Are any similar stuff available in the market that can be used for walls? If yes please provide me the details such as Brand, Cost, how to mix it with plastering material. I am assuming that if this is properly done, I can go for some decent exterior paint, without Putty and that will be enough to protect the walls from rain.

Also what are the uses of Putty for interior walls,and what can be the price per sft for good quality putty+paint including labor.

Thanks,
Vamsi.

Dear
Dampness causes most of the damage to the contents of the building. It often leads to the growth of molds and bacteria and creates an unhealthy environment for those who occupy it. Dampness gradually impairs the affected part of the building so this problem should be attended as soon as possible.

Precautions you can take during a new construction:

I'm shopping around for a paint sprayer to not only paint my screen, but alot of rooms in my house. I have an air compressor and just need the sprayer.


Problem is I can't find one that says it's ok to use with Latex paints. Almost all of the sprayers I have come across seem to be for automotive and industrial applications.


Can you recommend one for me for under $100? There is a Home Depot, Harbor Freight and Lowes here. Or I can just purchase online.

Professional painters find that using Spray Paint Machines is the best way to quickly paint large areas with excellent surface finish. But another problem is to choose them. There is no need to rush here. You can read tips and reviews on this website. This will help you make the right decision.
