“Waterproofing is costly but a necessary investment”
In Singapore, most buildings are made up of concrete. Even though concrete is a very solid material, however it is highly porous and it isn’t very resistant to water. That means that it does allow water and other chemicals to penetrate into it. When this is taken lightly, this could lead to the building deterioration, affecting both external and internal areas.
It is highly imperative that a building’s foundation to be kept dry at all times. When a building’s foundation isn’t waterproofed, it can easily lose its strength and start to swell due to water leakages.
Note that to reverse the effects of leakages will be expensive and time consuming. Dealing with the negative outcomes of water leakages can be very frustrating and costly. Thus, it is very important to protect a structure from rain, leaks and moisture damages.
