This Monsoon Take Care of your Exterior Walls
When you visit someone’s house, you form an impression about how the interiors might look just by simply observing the exterior walls. With the monsoon just around the corner, it’s essential to take major protective measures so as to ensure the complete safety of your home. Let’s discuss some of the reasons why your exterior walls must be taken care of before the monsoon season arrives.
One can say that external walls are just like the border army of a home, often in the direct line of extreme weather. The walls bear the direct force of harsh winds and lashing rains, during the mansoon or rainy season. A protective layer will therefore make sure that walls are safe.
The health of your walls is as vital as their external beauty. In addition, the badly built walls, or inadequate waterproofing will cause serious damage to the interiors of your home. Seepage, cracks as well as molds are the direct impact of these mistakes. An exterior water proofing solution that’s resistant to both algae and fungus, is suggested.
When walls are built, especially in contemporary RCC housing constructions, masonry is utilised to fill the gaps between the frames. If not done in a proper way, water can seep into the gaps and then cause great damage to external walls. A high performance waterproof coating will make sure that water slides off the external walls, and doesn’t seep in through the gaps.
Decorative external paints only beautify your external walls, and if the layer underneath the painted wall isn’t well protected, there’s a good chance of damage to your external walls. A layer of decorative paint doesn’t waterproof the walls.
The extent of the wall protection is ensured by the thickness of the waterproofing coating. Thicker the coating, fewer are the possibilities of water seeping through.
Do you actually need a decorative layer of paint?
With separate layers of coating and decorative paint, waterproofing isn’t any longer the multi-step process it used to be. Paint as well as coating are terms that should never be used interchangeably. Paint is principally a decorative layer, and might fall off during a harsh monsoon. Comparatively, a coating or film is much more thicker, more flexible and tougher. Moreover, it actually fortifies your walls, and ensures that they’re protected even in the toughest of weather.
Instead of two different solutions, choose a comprehensive waterproofing solution that comes in numerous shades. Once this is applied, it protects your exterior walls for years, negating the requirement for annual wall repairs.
Furthermore, your priority should be fortifying as well as waterproofing your home’s exterior walls, particularly in s country like India where the rainy season is long and quite harsh. Well, it is a fortune that almost all new waterproofing solutions which include a thick protective coating are available in several shades. With this type of waterproofing aesthetics is also guaranteed. Therefore, you should keep those external walls safe and looking good at all times, while enjoying the rains worry-free!
