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

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.

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.
