External Wall Waterproofing

The external walls face the direct brunt of rain and other changes in weather. Therefore, it is not enough to just decorate the building, but also waterproof it.

Waterproofing Knowledge

  •  There are cracks on the external walls through which rain water is seeping inside the house and ruining my interior décor. How do I resolve it and stop seepage?

    If the cracks are small and there is no problem with the structure, use a flexible crack filling compound, Dr. Fixit Crack X for filling the cracks.

    This is a ready to use water based acrylic crack filler that seals the crack up to 5 mm.

    If the cracks are more than 5 mm, use nonshrink crack filler Dr. Fixit Crack X Shrinkfree.

    Painting is possible after 24 hours. Unlike cement that permits seepage, Dr. Fixit Crack X is waterproof and is ideal for small cracks.

  •  Our building situated in Mumbai, is over 10 years old. The external plaster has deteriorated and needs to be removed. Advise us the correct system of replastering which will give waterproofing and enhanced durability?

    Plastered surfaces develop cracks due to deterioration arising out of bad construction practices, inadequate curing, aggressive climatic conditions, etc. You need a mortar, which is dense, cohesive and has waterproofing properties.

    To get good bonding between new & old plaster surface, use Dr. Fixit Pidicrete MPB, an acrylic bonding agent.

    While making plaster, add Dr. Fixit Pidiproof LW+ to impart waterproofing to the plaster. It also reduces the rebounding loss which results in saving time and material.

  •  Generally, the exterior paints are decorative in nature, but does not protect it from rainwater and thus gets damaged in 2 to 3 years. Do you have waterproof exterior paint?

    Exterior paints available in the markets provide decoration only and has only 50 - 60 microns of thickness, which is not enough to withstand the rain water pressure. So, the paint film ruptures easily and rainwater seeps inside the wall.You need an elastomeric waterproof coating, Dr. Fixit Raincoat which builds 110 - 120 micron thick film which resists rain water. It is a UV resistant coating and does not attract dirt. Its high sheen makes it look new for years to come. The coating is available in 700+ attractive shades to add beauty to building exteriors.

  •  What is the impact of leakages on the health of an individual and is waterproofing a must or I can skip it?

    Persistent dampness inside the house promotes the bacterial & fungal growth posing threat to the health of the residents. It can lead to respiratory disorders like asthama and frequent cold and cough. Damp walls can also generate a foul stench which makes living impossible in the house.

  •  The chajja and balcony of our society have developed cracks on the surface. How do we repair it?

    The chajja and balcony are one of the most prominent areas from where rainwater seeps inside the house ruining the interior décor. 

    The chajja and balcony are to be repaired with a polymer modified mortar made with Dr. Fixit Pidicrete URP.

  •  In what way can I stop water seepage from hairline cracks on the external walls?

    To prevent water seepage issues from cracks as thin as hairline, you have a better option of Dr. Fixit external wall waterproofing solution. Dr. Fixit CrackX is a flexible solution that helps you fill thinner gaps. A water-based acrylic solution- CrackX can fill all the gaps up to the width of 5 mm. If you have broad gaps, you have an option of Dr. Fixit CrackX Shrinkfree. It needs 24 hours to dry it completely after which you can paint your external walls. For best results, apply Dr. Fixit Primeseal and Dr. Fixit Raincoat as top coat once the crack filling is done.

  •  Why should I need to waterproof external walls of my home?

    External walls of your home are one of the most exposed surfaces to the extreme weather conditions. Even small cracks in the plaster result in water leakage. To prevent this action of seepage, you need a superior waterproofing material in order to stop water ingression from the external surface of your home. Using Dr. Fixit’s external wall waterproofing services in India, you can keep your internal décor unharmed.

  •  The balcony and Chajja (the concrete shed over the window) usually develop several cracks. Is there any solution for it?

    The balcony is the portion which stores some amount of rainwater and the improper slope of the Chajja becomes the reason for water seepage issues, ruining the home décor. You can use a polymer-based mortar- Dr. Fixit Pidicrete URP to avoid such consequences and a coating layer of Dr. Fixit New Coat Ezee. 

     
  •  Does avoiding waterproofing make any adverse impact on the human body?

    Dampness on the walls not only disturbs the home décor but also affects the human body over a prolonged period. The dampness leads to fungus and bacteria growth, resulting in respiratory illnesses such as Asthma and cough. The stink not even lets you live in your own house over the period. This is why you need to take care of external as well as internal wall waterproofing.

Testimonials

  • My bedroom walls had a seepage issue since quite some time as it is connected to the bathroom. Even after painting and using various products, the problem occurred frequently and I to spend a lot of money. After consulting my contractor, he suggested the use of Dr. Fixit waterproofing products and waterproofing solutions to prevent this problem. For now, the seepage issue has been suppressed but I hope choosing Dr.Fixit waterproofing products will be a good decision.
  • One of the worst problems I faced after the construction of my new home was leakage in one of the bedrooms. I live in a bungalow at Vasai east, and I failed to waterproof my house during the construction phase. While my contractor was unable to warn me about the consequences of not waterproofing my home, my neighbour asked me to get it done as soon as possible, and not wait any longer. So I got in touch with Dr.Fixit waterproofing professionals as I had heard that their products are widely used, and they suggested that I use Dr.Fixit Roofseal for my terrace and Dr.Fixit Raincoat for external walls.I was impressed with the service provided by their nearby dealer and I hope that I don’t face any leakage in the future.
  • I live in a bungalow in (Wai), every monsoon I face leakage in the house interiors due to heavy rainfall. Even after using waterproofing products and expensive paint, the problem persisted. My friend informed me about Dr. Fixit Raincoat, and I purchased them from the nearest dealer. My contractor hired some men to do the job, even once the work was done I was still sceptical about the result. However, this monsoon, there was no leakage problem, and I was relieved to see that.Choosing Dr. Fixit waterproofing was a good decision.
  • Last year at this time, the walls of my home started getting damp post heavy rains in the previous season. I found about Dr. Fixit Dampguard through the website and applied it on the walls. Didn’t face similar problems this year. Thanks, Dr. Fixit.
  • Living on the top floor of a building is undoubtedly exciting, but it brings along with it terrible roof leakage problems. I faced a similar situation in my home since I stay on the topmost floor of a building which is just below the terrace. Always during the monsoon, the terrace gets water clogged, and that leads to bad leakage in my hall area. I’ve tried so many products to fix this issue and even spread plastic over the affected areas of the terrace to prevent water leakage, but it didn’t help. After so many tried and tested means, my building contractor and I resorted to using Dr.Fixit’s Roofseal roof waterproofing products. And the product proved to be extremely helpful, as the leakage didn’t occur the following monsoon season. I should’ve used Dr.Fixit roof waterproofing products at the beginning itself to prevent any other leakage issues. But they say, better late than never, I would recommend using Dr.Fixit waterproofing solutions for every leakage issue faced in a home.
  • It’s been some years since I opted for Dr.Fixit waterproofing solutions as there was an ongoing leakage issue.I was experiencing this issue with my terrace, as the cracks formed resulted to huge leakage problem affecting my home interiors.My contractor chose to use some waterproofing products to see if the leakage continued. However, it stopped for some time and then continued again.Then I got in touch with Dr. Fixit waterproofing solutions and they suggested I use one of their waterproofing products called Dr. Fixit Newcoat. Since then, my terrace has not given us any problems whatsoever.I hope this problem doesn’t come up again.
  • I have been residing in Bandra for the past ten years. Some years back, my bedroom faced a leakage issue, as I live on the top floor just below the terrace. I consulted my builder about this issue, and he had mentioned some waterproofing material, which eventually didn’t prove helpful. After a lot of struggle, I finally started using Dr.Fixit waterproofing solutions, and more specifically, Dr.Fixit Newcoat, and I was pleased to see that there hasn’t been any leakage issues since then. I’m glad that I’ve used this waterproofing material, as now, I don’t have to spend money on repairs frequently. I would suggest that anyone who is facing such leakage in their home, should give Dr.Fixit waterproofing solutions a try.
  • I had a good experience with Dr Fixit guys. So, the building I was staying in was getting renovated on the top floors and my flat was exposed directly to the outside environment. Anyways, that was not a problem until monsoon when water started peeping in through my ceiling corner. Every time that it rained, I found my ceiling experiencing seepage problems . I contacted my landlord and he addressed my issue within a week. He called Dr Fixit guys from Mumbai, who came and inspected the dripping ceiling. They came back with their waterproofing product and solved the problem in a short span of time. Thumbs up to Dr Fixit.
  • Having stayed in a bungalow in Ghansoli since 15 years, we’ve often faced the issue of bathroom leakage in the master bedroom. It was a task using different waterproofing solutions to solve this issue. When I consulted my contractor, he suggested that I give Dr.Fixit solutions a try. And the result was surprising! My bathroom that was facing the leakage issue doesn’t leak anymore. In fact, it’s so much better, than I’ve waterproofed even the other bathrooms in my other bedrooms. The contractor suggested Dr.Fixit Pidifin, 2K. I’m happy that I don’t have to overspend on repairs in the future.
  • My house was facing a terrace seepage situation on the account of water tank overflowing. It was an ongoing issue which was under control for some time but had popped up again. I had heard about waterproofing services by Dr. Fixit being good but wasn’t sure. However, after listening to my contractor, I used the products for my terrace. It’s been over 5 months, and the leakage has stopped, which is a good thing. I hope this issue doesn’t come up again.
  • I contacted Dr Fixit waterproofing solutions for my terrace leakage some months backs. My spouse and I had purchased an apartment in Bandra and took possession about ten months back. However, within, a month or two, damp patches were seen on the ceiling. Mainly because we live a floor below the terrace (topmost level). We contacted the building owner, before reaching out to Dr. Fixit, but he didn’t seem that interested. Finally, we reached Dr.Fixit on their toll-free number; that very instant, my call was promptly answered by the Dr.Fixit office in Mumbai.My issue was raised, and I got in touch with the Dr Fixit staff, who very nicely, explained every aspect of the product to be used for terrace waterproofing. Within a few days, there was a representative who came by for inspection, and to check out how severe the issue was. On examination, he suggested a few products, which eventually were used. Once the monsoon arrived, the leakage issue didn’t seem to pop-up. I’m glad that my query for catered to, and my problem is no longer an issue. I appreciate the quick reply and good work too!
