Wall cracks, mould and rust in a building are more than just an eyesore. They are symptoms of a sick building caused by water damage. Left unattended, the water will penetrate into the building and cause severe damages that may be irreversible.
The first water leaking point is from the rooftop, especially when it is flat and made of concrete, where the chance of water ponding and seepage is higher. Therefore, the design of the drainage system of a building’s rooftop is crucial in preventing water leaking.
However, re-waterproofing of the rooftop and all other parts of the building structure from time to time is equally important. Like how vitamins fortify your health, regular maintenance and proper re-waterproofing strengthens the sustainability of a building. This measure helps to ensure hassle-free maintenance work in the long run.
Besides avoiding water seepage, re-waterproofing Is important to extend the lifespan and enhance the appearance of a building. Thus, just like how spending on nutritional food to ensure the body’s well-being, re-waterproofing is a vital investment in safeguarding the value of your property.
