Waterproofing work is a very important part of renovation services. You definitely need to engage a waterproofing specialist if you want to do it right the first time.

Several common waterproofing issues are shared as below:
1. Rooftop Waterproofing
This is one of the most common water leaking issues. Water leaking issue may range from a small issue such as dampness to bigger issue such as water dripping. Fixing your rooftop waterproofing would depend on what type of rooftop your house has. There are different methods of rectification are prescribed for flat roof concrete slabs vs roof tiles.
2. Balcony Waterproofing
The other common area to have waterproofing issue is at the balcony. Usually, water ponding may occur at your balcony, resulting in water leaking from the balcony to the car porch area. Most problems start with clogged rainwater outlet and gutter. It slowly creeps to the angle fillet of your balcony slabs with the floors. As this is susceptible to the outdoor weather, if this is not fixed immediately, it may result in many grow bigger in the future.
3. Toilet Waterproofing
Last but not least, toilet or bathroom waterproofing is the most common waterproofing of all areas. It will affect your house, whether it is a double storey landed house or an apartment. First of all, you need to ensure if your water leaking from the toilet is due to a plumbing issue or waterproofing issue.
