Leaking Walls & Ceiling Solutions

Understanding the Causes of Leaks

  1. Poor Construction: Inadequate waterproofing during construction can make walls and ceilings susceptible to leaks.
  2. Aging Infrastructure: Over time, buildings can develop cracks and gaps, allowing water to seep in.
  3. Roof Issues: Damaged roof tiles, clogged gutters, or faulty flashing can lead to water accumulation and subsequent leaks.
  4. Plumbing Problems: Burst pipes or faulty plumbing can cause water to leak into walls and ceilings.
