Waterproofing and Treatments Tips

We all want our surroundings to look and feel good. We end up spending so much time and money in ensuring our home décor is the best it can be. We browse endless hours on Pinterest looking for home inspiration. We spend thousands on creating a space that we can truly call ours. And after completing your dream home, experiencing leaks and cracks on your home walls can truly set you back. Moreover, it can potentially ruin your home décor elements. Though repainting might help in hiding the wall dampness and leaks, it is not a long term solution. It is important to fix the walls by waterproofing them with effective solutions.

Berger Home Shield Waterproofing experts use moisture meter to investigate all rooms of the house and locate the areas that need waterproofing- including interior and exterior walls and roof waterproofing and treatments. Since the extent of water damage can differ even on one same wall- they require tailored and customised solutions.

Managing mild wall leaks and dampness

The home walls can be affected by mild dampness for different reasons, including weak construction and heavy rainfall. If you are experiencing this problem in your home, do not worry. It can be easily dealt with proper waterproofing. If the moisture meter reading shows 0-5, it means your walls require only a regular treatment. Use surface preparation and painting process. If the moisture meter reading shows 6-10, your walls have a mild dampness problem which can easily be fixed by our waterproofing experts using Waterproof putty and Seal-O-Prime.

Fixing severe wall leaks and dampness

Severe wall leaks can be caused by rainwater draining down inside the walls, over a period of time or from a cracked and leaky foundation. If ignored, they can cause structural damage to the walls of your home and lead to serious mould and mildew damage. Since each wall leakage problem is different, there is no one size fits all solution. And fixing the leakage and dampness requires tailored waterproofing solutions. If the moisture meter reading shows 26-30, your walls have a severe dampness problem and it is recommended to use Dampstop, Waterproof putty and Seal-O-Prime. If the moisture meter reading shows more than 30, your walls require urgent waterproofing. Your walls will need the most effective, robust and strong waterproofing and it is recommended to use Injection Sealer, Dampstop, Waterproofing Putty and Seal-O-Prime.

If you are planning to put your home on the market or looking for new tenants, one of the simplest and easiest ways to increase the value of the home is to give the walls a coat of fresh paint- both interiors and exteriors.

Selling your home can be stressful. Follow these tips that will help you sell your home faster and for more money.

Stick to neutral colours for interior wall painting

For painting ideas for interior walls, neutral colours are a safe choice since it goes well with pretty much any type of home décor. This makes it easier for potential buyers to imagine themselves living in the house, blending it with their unique style, décor and furniture pieces. Moreover, you would want to create a good first impression for the buyers, no one wants their future home to look worn out and in a poor condition.

Fix all leakages and waterproof the house

Peeling walls, leaky roofs, mossy and musty exteriors- this spells disaster and it is a big red flag for any home buyer. Leakages and flaky walls can drastically reduce the price of your home and it is important to fix it before putting it up on the market. Berger Home Shield Waterproofing experts effectively tackle all wall and roof leakage woes. They use tools like Moisture Meter to determine if waterproofing is required on home walls and offer customised and effective solutions to combat wall leakages.

Choose no more than three colours for exteriors

The exterior of the house is the first thing that potential buyers will see. To create a good first impression, it is important to make sure the exteriors of the house look good and durable. If you are thinking of giving exterior walls a fresh coat of paint, follow the 60-30-10 percentage rule: 60 percent is the main body of the home, 30 percent is the doors, windows and balconies and 10 percent is the front door and shutters. Do not use too many colours on the exteriors since a variety of shades can be distracting.

Know which rooms to prioritise for painting

If you are planning to paint the entire home before putting it on the market, you need to plan the home painting in a manner that it is less stressful. Prioritise painting the living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and foyer. Observe how natural and artificial light plays on the colour of your choice and the walls of the home to help you decide the best paint colours.

 Schemes for Room Colour Ideas

Choosing the perfect colour for your home walls can be tricky. And to get it to match your existing décor elements can be overwhelming. Colour combinations can make or break a space. So, choosing the right colour combinations is important to boost the aesthetic appearance of the room.

Let’s look at three major types of colour schemes for room colour combination ideas:

Wall Paint Colour Ideas for Interior Design

How to create a monochromatic colour scheme

Monochromatic colour schemes are elegant and relaxing in nature and a popular trend in interior design, for a good reason. Layering colours with a common hue creates a stunning look and it is also relatively easy to achieve. To create a monochromatic scheme, you need to start with choosing one base primary hue to use throughout the room, from the floor to the furniture, wall paint colour and artwork. You are not limited to whites, beige and neutrals with a monochromatic palette, contrary to popular idea. Bolder colours such as greens, blues, yellows and violets can be layered in a space using shades of the same hue.

Neutral Colour Scheme Tips for Walls

How to create a neutral colour scheme

Neutral colour scheme might seem boring and drab but by using variations of neutral tone (light, medium and dark), you can create a space that is visually transfixing. Using textures can also add contrast and style to a neutral colour scheme. To start with, choose a neutral hue for the walls as a primary colour. Think whites, greys, beiges and even black. Next, pick two other shades similar to your primary colour. Decide which colour will go on the walls depending on the mood you wish to create. Bright décor with neutral walls will look calming and yet cheerful. Soft colours with neutral walls can be comforting and homely.

Complementary Colour Painting Ideas

How to create a complementary colour scheme

Using complementary colour pairings is a sure-fire way to inject some style and boldness in any space. Think red and green, blue and orange, purple and yellow. To choose a complementary colour scheme, pick two colours that are opposite from each other on the colour wheel. The colour wheel was first used by Sir Isaac Newton, using his prism experiment where he found out that there was a wide spectrum of colours in pure white light and they reflect different colours. Since then, the spectrum has been used widely as a colour wheel for the categorisation of colours and décor. For a complementary colour scheme, the base colour should be the dominant and primary one whereas the complementary colour can be used in form of an accent.
