What is the ideal time to waterproof a home?

The ideal time to waterproof a home is right at the time of construction.

  1. A lot of treatments can only be done at the time of construction – example waterproofing of the foundations and water tanks, additional waterproofing admixtures in the concrete etc. These steps cannot be taken once the home is complete.
  2. During construction, we can waterproof all the critical areas such that the structure has all-round protection. During repairs we can only fix the area that is damaged, other areas still remain vulnerable
  3. Waterproofing during construction is extremely cost effective as repairs tend to cost 4-5 times more

We spend our entire life’s savings into our homes. It is the most important asset we create in our lifetime. Hence it is critical to invest in the longevity of our home.
