Come monsoon, and several water seepage issues start raising their ugly heads all around you. If you are a resident of any tropical region, you would see how the problem of water seepage can give rise to serious issues. This is the reason why you must take certain measures for waterproofing your house. It is a very good thing that modern architects keep provision of house waterproofing when they design houses. This ensures that the house gets waterproofed at the time of construction only. Otherwise, if you go for waterproofing your house after the construction work is done, it would cost you much more. Anyways , you must remember that waterproofing of the house must be taken as a priority activity during construction and you must set aside a part of your budget for that. Here are three ways which will ensure that you get a perfectly waterproofed house.

Slide4:

Keep water supply and sewage pipes away from the basement When you design your house, try to keep the areas demarcated for the kitchen and the bathrooms away from the area demarcated for the basement. This would ensure that no water supply and sewage pipelines cross the ceiling of your basement and minimize the chance of water leakage in the basement. Now , are you wondering what is so special about waterproofing the basement and the need to protect it from water seepage? You should look into the point that it is difficult to detect water seepage inside the basement which would worsen the situation. Moreover , basements are not the places which get good exposure to sunlight. So, water leakage in the basement might facilitate the growth of moss, fungi, pests and rodents.

Seal all your tile linings with the help of grout The areas in a house which are most likely to suffer from water seepage are the bathrooms and the kitchen. Needless to say, these are the areas which come into maximum contact of water. So, you must get the floors and half of the walls of these rooms tiled. Now , only tiling may not solve your issue. You must get the tile linings grouted. When you go for grouting, always make sure that you get the highest quality grout available in the market. This is because ordinary grout give away within a few months letting your tiled floors and walls vulnerable to water seepage.

Slide6:

Use adhesives during construction This is the most primary requisite for waterproofing any construction. When you start the construction, always make sure that good quality building adhesives are mixed in the concrete . This would not only provide strength to the concrete but also fill all the gaps in the concrete walls and floors.
