Causes of ceiling leak
Ceiling leak happens when water seeps through concrete walls and floor above the ceiling. This may occur because of cracks within the old concrete or cement that creates a pathway for water to make its way to the ceiling. It commonly happens in ceilings above wet areas such as toilets, bathrooms, and balconies.
Some of the signs of ceiling leak includes wet patches, discolored marks, stained blotches, and water dripping from your ceiling. Once you notice any of these things, it is important to consult a ceiling waterproofing contractor immediately in order to prevent further leaking and damages to the structure of the house.
Benefits of Waterproofing
Ceiling waterproofing Solutions
There are several ways to solve ceiling leakage problems. It depends on the condition of the structure and the needs of the client. Common solutions include hacking of tiles, re-screeding, and relaying of tiles.
Another option that you can explore is the Polyurethane injection method or PU grouting. It is a specialized method, where polyurethane is injected into the walls to stop the water from passing through the cracks of the ceiling. A pre-drilled hole will be done on the underside of the ceiling, and the PU grout will be injected using low/high pressure. The grout will spread into the area and start to fill up the spaces that cause the leakage. It is a recommended method for a concrete crack that is actively leaking.
You may also opt to have floor infusion treatment as a solution for ceiling leak. It uses waterproofing chemicals that penetrate into the concrete and starts to crystallize, to act as a surface sealant. As the leak slows down, another component of the chemical dries and forms another waterproof barrier to strengthen the surface. This method allows the surface of the ceiling to breath, allowing the liquids to evaporate instead of leaking.
