Why Waterproofing Is Ignored By Consumers

The benefits of waterproofing may not be visible immediately and therefore it is one of the primary reasons why it gets relegated to the background and is often ignored. Waterproofing is an absolutely essential component of the construction process; however, as a consumer its benefits may not be immediately apparent to you. It is the job of your contractor to ensure that waterproofing is done for the foundation, basement, the terrace and the bathrooms. Just as it is their job to ensure that the best quality construction materials are used in the construction of the house, similarly they should advise you on adequate waterproofing. Yet this is an ideal situation, and very often the contractors themselves are either unaware or uninterested in putting sufficient efforts towards quality construction. These days the focus appears on completing the building, rather than taking pride in the final product. Clearly, one cannot rely blindly on the contractor or builder. As a homeowner it is essential that you remain aware about the process of construction and choice of materials for waterproofing. Even though it is not practical to know about every aspect of house construction, it helps to have a broad outline about major requirements, materials and finishing. When it comes to waterproofing make sure you use the best quality products from Pidilite which have a range of solutions for every aspect related to waterproofing for specific areas in and around the house.
