Waterproof Your Home For Winter

This winter, we all share the wish to keep weather-related problems in our home at bay. Ideally you would have carried out the waterproofing of your home during the dry summer months and not left it to the last second in the midst of winter.

The correct application of waterproofing in the basement, on roofs and outer walls will ensure adequate protection of your home. Here are a few tips to watch out for as you carry out continual inspection on the status of your home:

-Cracking: Check for paint and plaster cracks. Cracking may indicate underlying damage below the surface. They could also be due to incorrect paint application.

-Dampness: Water damage often manifests as damp spots and mould on the interior or exterior of a building and will also feel damp to the touch.

-Exterior structural damage: Visible damage to external structural walls indicates severe damage.

-Discoloring: Any discoloring on walls may indicate weak spots. Dark spots on ceilings, interior and exterior walls and inconsistency in color on waterproofing membranes are potential signs of damage.

-Build-up of leaves and debris in gutter down pipes. A sure way to speed the onset of water damage is by ignoring blocked gutters. Keep them clean, all the time.

-Broken roof tiles. Replace broken tiles. Water finds the smallest crack and begins its destructive process. Flat roofs require high maintenance. Keep waterproofing membranes clean and inspect for damage often. Ensure water does not build up in corners.

Applying waterproofing is a specialist operation that requires the expertise of Waterproofing specialists who can assess the extent of the damage and recommend the precise specifications required to repair and restore exterior surfaces and roofs.
