Infrared Thermographic Scan can detect leak spots which are invisible by sight inspection. Microwave Moisture Meter is capable to identify the exact location of leak spots at a depth of 7 cm in the concrete. It also serves as the expert witness for leakage and defects survey. Salinity Meter can precisely measure salt even in a drop of water so as to differentiate if the leakage originates from potable water or sea water.
Effective methods to tackle leakage in sills, window frames and walls include grout Injection or PU foam sealing which minimise inconvenience caused during construction period and waterproof layer revamp with cement mortar.
Bathrooms and kitchens in common are the source of leakage. Aging of the waterproof layer or improper construction of the slanted water layer can cause leakage of the ceiling of the flat below or blackish and mildew in the bathroom door.
Leakage problem usually is complicated with aging of reinforcement and concrete, thus eroding the bearing capacity of the structure and resulting in safety hazards. East Way Waterproof provides reinforcement corrosion repair, corrosion control by Cathodic Protection and concrete repair.
Available techniques such as environmental-approved water-based coating, epoxy resin, torch-on, membrane waterproofing and tannin coating, offer property owners choices in overall consolidation, interface or partial repair depending on actual situation and needs.
Works of water cooling towers and lift shafts require higher construction skills than that for walls as the water pressure usually is higher and in particular for water towers, only environmentally accredited non-toxic building products should be applied. With substantial years of experience, East Way Waterproof is capable of providing the best solution to our clients.
