Easy Roof Waterproofing Checklist


Let us paint you a scenario: you’re at home on the weekend, preparing for guests to come in. You’ve prepared the best meal possible and cleaned your house spotless. Suddenly, you notice a damp spot on your wall flacking your precious paint. Not good, right?

According to our consumer research, about 73% of all homes have some form of water seepage/leakage problems. A majority of which, are because of water seeping in through the roof and terraces, as it is one of the most exposed parts of your house. This water in your walls can lead to not only structural damages but also make hosting your guests, in your otherwise perfect homes, a difficult job.
