Steps to find and repair weak points of your house to safeguard from water leakage


 
Home Improvement

Water seepage problem is not uncommon, especially in the older buildings where cracks are visible, and buildings demand a repair. There are some problem areas, which demand special attention. The most troublesome area is the roof. Accumulated water or ice can seep into the floor of the roof if proper waterproofing is not done in the house. Basements are the Achilles heel when it comes to repairing job. It is very difficult to repair the basement once the construction is done. Many contractors doing great job in waterproofing Melbourne cbd advise to take appropriate action during the construction process.

Finding cracks and repair it

Homeowners are reluctant to use masonry because of many reasons. Masonry walls are expensive; it takes lots of time to build so they rely on concrete walls. Concrete is good but eventually it will develop cracks no matter what you do. Water has a great power to intrude through any small outlet. Cracks expose tiny crevices that are the path for water to enter into the walls. It is very damaging because it softens the ground beneath it, leading to more crevices.

Small cracks lead to chain reaction. So it must be repaired quickly. Waterproofing in Hawthorn comes with many effective methods to make the walls resistant against water penetration. If the crack is small or very narrow, waterproofing sealing can be done easily. If the crack is wide and evident clearly, better to repair it completely.

Brick and mortar construction

Brick and mortar constructed buildings are very vulnerable to water intrusion. You need to very careful about the walls of your house if it is built by bricks. For a large damage you can consult a contractor engaged in waterproofing St Kilda. For small damage, a simple DIY guide can help to fix the problem. First pressure washes the surface and cleans all debris etc. Allow the walls to dry completely. It is important to dry it thoroughly because damp surface will never hold the sealing properly. Buy some masonry sealer, and apply multiple layers on the walls. There are varieties of sealers available in the market; some sealers give a flat finish, some are glossy. Both are good, and it depends on personal choice.

Change metal fixtures

New types of paints are available in the markets that are designed to resist rust and prevent corrosion. It is important to keep your fixtures lubricated to avoid rusting. Use heavy lubricants that last longer, which protect from metal-eating moisture.

Clean your drainage system
