Determining if your property has an issue

The following points are key indications that your building has water damage:
• Rotting carpet or floor coverings.
• Corrosion of metals such as steel reinforcement, lintels, beams, flashings and door frames.
• Swelling and rotting timbers like skirtings, architraves, floor joists, beams, framing, wall boards; and de-lamination of tiling.
• Blistering of paint and plaster; and deterioration of facades.
• Damp, musky smell and mildew.
. Signs of calcium staining to the front edge of your balconies

Causes of leaks

The most common causes of waterproofing failure are:
• The waterproofing membrane is old and needs replacing.
• Building movement – as a new building settles, the movement of joints and the structure may cause a tear in the membrane system or overstretch it.
• Having been previously incorrectly diagnosed and repaired.
• Lack of expertise of earlier tradesmen, or improper products.
• Lack of attention to penetrations and corner details.
• New penetrations such as pipe work, cables etc.
• New materials and incompatible material combinations.

One of the No 1. reasons for failure is the decision to chose the lowest priced quote when waterproofing BUT the saying " you only get what you pay for " couldn't be more true when it comes to waterproofing !
