If you’re a landlord and have leased flat/flats to tenants, you must be used to frequently painting the house whenever there is a new tenant moving in. Because the paint is peeling and let’s be honest, you want to hide the leakage to fix a good rent for the flat.
For homeowners, planning the foundation of the home is one of the most important aspects. Be it a bungalow, high rise apartment or small flat, the beauty of your home interiors will depend majorly on the layout and foundation of the house. However, wall leakages and peeling are common problems faced by homeowners. This usually happens due to poor construction and lack of proper waterproofing. When water infiltrates the walls of your home, it can cause mould, leakages, cracking, peeling of paint and even damage the main structure of the house. These problems need to be tackled at the earliest, if they are ignored, they can create some major structural issues in your house. The sooner you identify these problems, the easier and less expensive it is to fix them.
A house is a significant asset that involves a huge investment. Old or new, a house is a cherished dream for all home buyers and proactive measures need to be taken towards mitigating all kind of risks. Water leakage or water seepage is one of the major causes of structural defects in buildings. It results in dampness, fungal growth and metal corrosion.
Since the early days on, human beings have been looking for shelter to seek safety from elements of nature. First, we built huts and mud houses and now we have moved to concrete structures and high rises. But the risks that nature poses still remains high. Even with technological and architectural advances, water damage still remains a major concern.
