Ceiling leakage can occur when water from the above unit or dwelling leaks into your ceiling, through the concrete floor slab. This is mainly due to the long-term wear and tear of the waterproof membrane or screed in the slab. As such, ceiling leaks are common in older buildings especially in bathrooms and toilets.
If you have a leaking roof, finding the source of the leak can be difficult. Because water can enter via one point on your roof and flow to another, before reaching your walls and floors. Furthermore, a ceiling leak can lead to serious issues such as flooding, discoloration, wall collapse. As a result, causing damage to your assets and property
Also, the build-up of water on your ceiling is most likely due to water seeping through and dripping down your walls while traveling around your home. Furthermore, the water is likely to proceed through your building’s foundations if it has penetrated your basement ceiling. Consequently, compromising the structural integrity of your home.
Not to mention if water gets into electrical fittings, a leaking bathroom could be dangerous. To avoid electrocution, you should remove any electrical gadget or cover any socket that you feel has been damaged by the leak.
Lastly, the formation of mold can also happen due to the excessive moisture from a ceiling leak. Mold can cause breathing problems, which in turn endanger the occupants’ health. All things considered, repairing the waterproofing system is necessary to solve ceiling leak issue.

If you notice discoloration, drooping paster, or water leaking from your ceiling, it could be an indication of a direct ceiling leak. However, plumbing or roofing faults can also cause the leaks in the first place.
3 Typical signs of ceiling water infiltration:
Identifying the source of the water is the most crucial step in resolving your water leakage issue. Water infiltration can occur from a variety of sources i.e. a faulty waterproofing system above the seepage location, leaking plumbing or sanitary equipment, roof water leakage etc. As each type of water incursion has its own set of characteristics, you might find some of the symptoms listed below helpful.
If your water seepage or leakage happens slowly i.e. dripping every 3 seconds interval, it is possible that it is caused by defective waterproofing system upstairs. Multiple places of dripping, as well as the occasional leak, are other prevalent signs.
Defective plumbing lines or fixtures can also cause water damage or ceiling leaks. If there is visible water damage beneath places where pipes are placed, the problem is likely to be with the pipes. In addition, the water is usually clear and it’s pace of leakage is normally quite consistent. Nonetheless, it could be leaking profusely due to drain pipe issues as well.
As you would have guess, rainwater is typically the main cause of roof leaks. Leaks are more common during or after rainstorms, and become more severe during heavy downpours. Hence, it is difficult to pinpoint the source in roof leak since it contains various components that could be regulated. As such, we highly recommend that you thoroughly assess and maintain your roof on a regular basis.
Also known as Grouting, it is a method for water seepage and water leakage repair. PU Injection is widely used to repair the cracks in concretes and honey-combed concrete by pressuring the chemical into the defect areas. When exposed to the water, the chemical in the polyurethane (PU) reacts and expands. Subsequently, foaming up to seal the concrete pores and cracks. To point out, the expansion capability of PU can be up to 20 times of the volume injected.
It is a liquid applied coating that makes almost any substrate surfaces water-repellent. With Nano technology, it uses nanoparticles to penetrate deeply into pores or capillaries without clogging up the substrate. Treated substrate surfaces on the other hand remain breathable.
Refurbish roof surface or external wall surface to ensure all cracks are patched and sealed. Additionally, a protective waterproof coating is applied to existing roof and/or external walls so as to safeguard against the effects of water damage and moisture buildup.
