Why is waterproofing important?

Waterproofing your home seems like a very expensive and time consuming task. It is not as it seems and actually pales in comparison to the costs and renovations you will need to do if the waterproofing is not taken care of properly initially.

Living in Gauteng, where we are famous for “world-class” thunderstorms and having a leaking roof is not going to go down too well with the maintenance of your home.

If you fail to waterproof your home, there is a great chance that you will ruin your wall structures, the roofing as well as damage furniture in the home and cause dampness which will lead to mould.

Besides this ruining the aesthetics of your home, it will cost you more in repairs, and renovations at a later stage. Let’s not forget that it is not safe to live in an environment that retains moisture and mould.

Repairs and renovations in the long run:

Because of water leaks, you may need to repair walls, repaint, sort out roofing damage and purchase new furniture. Thousands of rands could be wasted if you are penny wise and pound foolish. Perhaps waterproofing doesn’t seem as daunting now as it did?

Health hazards:

Do you want to run the risk of losing the home entirely because water damage has rendered it uninhabitable? Mould can cause serious health issues for you and your family. If you have damp and mould you are more likely to have respiratory problems, respiratory infections, allergies or asthma. Damp and mould can also affect the immune system of both children and adults.
