Why waterproof a new home?

How good would it be if a house remains leak free for life? Use of good quality waterproofing products and correct waterproofing procedures in new homes can help it stay leak-free and damp-free for life. In case of no or improper waterproofing of dwellings, leakage starts to find a way through cracks within a few years of construction. It may happen because of several reasons such as use of low-quality materials, unskilled masonry workers, extreme weather conditions, or fast construction process giving less time for curing. One would not have to worry about leakage problems for years to come if correct waterproofing services are employed during new construction.


Moreover, after spending a considerable sum of money in the construction of a home and giving out many efforts in planning a house’s beautiful interiors, no one would want their new home to have problems like internal wall dampness, ceiling leakage, peeling paint or steel rod corrosion. Hence for lifetime leak-free homes, it is essential to implement proper waterproofing services. Dr. Fixit provides you with a clear 5-point waterproofing solution for leak-free homes.

Where should one waterproof?

Some new homes include basic waterproofing, which at times is only restricted to roofs, but it is imperative to have proper waterproofing done at all the water entry areas to make the home ‘a 5-point leak-free home’. It is important to understand that different surfaces are exposed to different kinds of challenges; hence the solution for each of these surfaces should be best-in-class to have the right type of waterproofing.


A 5-point leak-free home is waterproofing not only the roof but also places like exterior walls, concrete water tanks, below ground areas, and internal wet areas like bathrooms, kitchens and balconies. The home will be protected adequately only when all the five possible water entry areas are waterproofed. These five surfaces are crucial for waterproofing as explained below:

  • Roof – Temperature changes, as well as wear and tear of the roof, cause cracks on the roof surface, leading to water leakage and dampness in ceilings.
  • Exterior Walls – Temperature changes cause cracks in exterior walls, leading to damp patches and therefore tainting the overall look of a house.
  • Internal Wet Areas (bathroom, kitchens and balconies) – These areas are exposed to water for 365 days a year causing seepage and peeling of paint on internal walls.
  • Concrete Water Tanks – Water tanks are susceptible to leakages through their surface due to the formation of cracks. Therefore it is vital to correctly waterproof water tanks.
  • Below ground – Ground water rises over a period and enters the home, damaging the internal walls.

If a new homeowner is confused about how to ensure top-notch quality waterproofing with optimum and long-lasting protection, then they should without hesitation follow the 5-point leak-free home procedure from Dr. Fixit waterproofing for comprehensive waterproofing of new homes.
