Hello..! Mr.Gaurav, To protect ,structure of building from different weather conditions,it is recommended to go for   waterproofing & heat proofing on roof top. As compared to cost of building, it costs  much less......So many types of products are available in market with facility of the Applicator also..Regards

Waterproofing of flat terraces is a tricky problem in building construction, mainly because the surfaces are flat. 
The most cost-effective method appears to be treating the concrete roof on the same evening of concreting, when it is still not hard set. Thin slurry with one part cement, two part fine grain river sand and ample water to create the flow condition is poured on the top of the freshly cast roof. Then, starting at one end, the masons will work backwards, gently levelling and pressing the slurry into the concrete, filling its micro pores; wiping out the step marks and such other undulations using a square, flat, handled trowel.
Many companies have been promoting methods and corresponding products of their own towards effective terrace finish. Most of them rely upon chemicals, polyurethane coatings and admixtures, hence tend to have a limited life span, though they guarantee the surface until then.

Yes it is mandatory, costing depends upon the material you select.
