I often see people often open the topic is how to waterproofing the house for good, safe. But more information is available when diluted, sometimes as much as panic. I try to write short for people to understand a simpler way of waterproofing his house.
In the current construction. The construction of waterproofing for such items as roof floor, balcony, toilet, elevator hatch, basement, underground tank has been the focus of investors and contractors. Some issues that are common:
- Firstly, the construction workers do not understand the application of each type of material to put in each position need waterproofing. This leads to misuse, waste and less safety.
- Monday: Less experienced builders. Most builders, home repairers, painters ... have some experience of waterproofing, leading to the case after several months, even weeks of repetition. But that is not enough, because to perform professional waterproofing requires deep understanding, know the source of the cause and execute a lot of new works accumulated experience. At the same time, the construction must be very careful with the process.
- Tuesday: Subjective psychology of both investors and contractors. This is very common, because often used cheap waterproof materials, using less experienced construction workers, in the process of construction does not closely monitor the process. Because of this poor quality, much damage, the time to hire workers to deal with the new to see great harm, many workers are afraid to do some type of work again.
1. Waterproofing the roof: It is best to use a 3mm thick hot melt adhesive rather than using a waterproofing or sweeping plaster. Because the bituminous membrane is elastic, heat-resistant, elastic, it should match the position of the roof. The use of chemicals or waterproof paint only for several years is impermeable to cracking concrete on the roof, especially the fracture of the roof, is very common. A small but extremely important attention is: the floor drainage pipe or technical box should be waterproof with grout shrinkage shrinkage, then can pump Epoxy glue around the mouth of the tube, the top is the membrane is still absolute mind.
2. Toilet Waterproofing: Like roofing waterproofing, it is preferable to use hot mantle instead of chemical lacquer or paint mixed with cement. Note the technical box and floor drainage tube carefully as above.
3. Wall waterproofing: The outer wall should be painted with an Acrylic elastic paint, then rolled with cementitious waterproofing paint. In the wall should be anti-alkaline primer, then paint coating, best to use reputable paint, but should buy in the shop is not hit by paint paintings. Indoors should not use bait powder, preferably the wall should be smooth than the use of bait.
Above are some simple experiences that people should know to waterproof the best for their home.
