Topic: What is the cheapest form of waterporoofing the terrace?

Water proofing treatment is done on the top of roof is an important part of construction work. Any unnecessary saving or carelessness may cause dampness in the house. The cheapest form of water proofing on terrace is given below.

1) Apply 2 coats of bitumen on the top of RCC Slab after cleaning the slab with wire brush or brooms.
2) Lay mud plaster on bituminous surface.
3) Lay the earth in required thickness for making proper slope to drain rain water.
4) Lay brick tiles with mud mortar on earth work which was already laid in a proper slope.
5) Do cement mortar in the ratio 1:3 grouting on brick tiles and clean the surface with brooms.
6) Do curing for at least 7 days.

Hi,

Dampness causes several problems for the occupants of the building.
1. It affects the health of the person living in the building.
2. The building looks very ugly.
3. The cost of painting white washing is increased.
4. The life of the building is reduced.
Keeping in view above problems, water proofing of the terrace should be done according to the following methods.
1. Proper outlet for rainwater must be fixed.
2. Cement concrete Gola should be constructed at the junction of roof slab and parapet.
3. Proper slope should be given towards outlet for quick drainage of rainy water.
4. Two coats of bitumen should be laid on RCC slab.
5. The earth 3 inches to 4 inches should be laid on bitumen surface to make proper slope to drain rain water. 
6. Tile tracing consisting of brick tiles should be laid on one inch mud mortar on compacted earth. 
7. Cement pointing must be done on the joints of brick tiles laid in tile tracing.

What do you mean by earth as you stated "The earth 3 inches to 4 inches should be laid"?

Dear Sam

      The earth means ''Mitti'' from ground and this is laid for giving the slope to drain the rain water. This is laid nominal or zero at the mouth of pipe and maximum on the oter end to make slope.See the articles on the link for dampness.
