FAQ's

Q. What is the need for externa walls waterproofing?

External walls are built with masonry to fill the spaces in the RCC frame containing slabs, beams and columns. This lends itself to seepage of rain from the external walls to the interiors. Cracks in plasters lead to water seepage. What is required is a high performance waterproof coating that would prevent seepage of water from the external walls to the interiors of the building.
