Post subject: "roof leakage" the best optimal solution

Dear Chethan, For an existing building ,if there is a leakage problem in heavy rain,kindly check these points carefully.....1.Rain water outlets...if chocked ,clean it. 2. Water stored on roof....correct the slope with WPCC towards rain water outlets..3. if open mild steel rods from RCC columns, slab or beams ....cover it with concrete and WP plaster. All these should be done Before rain, during rainy season only temporary repairing is possible...

Dear Chethan
Dampness problem is often noticed in the building. You can use the methods below to eradicate the dampness problem in an existing building.
       Check all the out let and clean the rain water pipe.
Re-plaster the affected area with a waterproof plaster or cement mixture. 
  • Install a proper Damp Proof Course (DPC), a continuous layer of damp proofing material, by removing a line of bricks close to floor level followed by insertion of plastic sheet along the same line of bricks by replacing the old mortar with waterproof mortar. 
  • Cover all the outer walls with vertical DPC from ground to the floor level.
  • Apply the most widely used “Pressure Injection of a higher Alkyl Siloxane solution” into the holes of the bricks.
  • Place the “Delivery Tubes” of specific designs into the holes of the bricks and transfuse the liquid into the wall under the influence of gravity.

Lay the water proofing membrane, on the top of  the surface of existing floor, which acts as a barrier against dampness.

  • Let all the sanitary and the water supply fittings be tight and leak proof.
