Topic: Waterproofing leaks from terrace

Hi,

Our house was constructed 30 years back and has withstood 2001 earthquake in kutch.
Earthquake has lead to development of micro cracks in terrace floor through which rain water leaks in almost all rooms.

What methods are available for water proofing and which one is the best among them? Approximate costs of each one?

one time cost is not a problem if long term solution is obtained.

Thanks.

Dear Island
             It is better if you take help from local engineer who can give advice after seeing at site personally..However in my opinion redo terracing after dismantling the old.

Thank you sir. 

Actually there are 3 opinions -

1. Redo flooring with an iron (or some other) mesh
2. Applying Dr. Fixit 
3. Tiling on terrace - currently there are no tiles. only cement floor.

Which would be better for zero leakage. Also keeping relative costs in mind.

Dear
      In my opinion brick tile flooring is the best option.
   Clean the surface of roof and lay polythene sheet on the roof than put good earth on the polythene and made proper slope for drainage of water after it lay brick tiles in mud.After cleaning the surface of tile with broom grout the tile joints with cement mortar 1:3  and do curing and do cement pointing on the joints.

If you're building a concrete foundation, or larger parts of your home involve concrete, you may want to consider waterproofing the concrete itself so that your rooms remain nice and cozy.

Here are a few steps

1. Determine if your concrete house needs waterproofing.
2. Prepare the walls for the coating you have selected. 
3. Thoroughly clean the surface of your concrete before      waterproofing.
4. Use a liquid membrane for quickness and economy.
