Roof Waterproofing: How To Do It Right The First Time

Let’s be honest. Roof waterproofing is a job better left for professionals. While there are DIY waterproofing products available on the market, specialised skills and knowledge are needed to do it properly. That is if you want to do it right the first time around.

Making your roof water-resistant is one of the best investments you can make for your home. Even if you don’t have a roof leak right now, it will save you thousands of rands in the future towards roof repairs or a premature roof replacement. Money that could be spent on improvements rather than repairs.

The South African climate isn’t kind to the exterior of our homes. The scorching sun, rainstorms and thunder can wreak havoc and before you know it you have a ton of issues to attend to. Roof leaks being one of the most common.

Protect Your Health By Improving The Air Quality In Your Home

It’s no secret that air pollution has become a huge issue in the last few decades. Since air pollution isn’t limited to the outdoors, contaminated air enters our home and exposes us to dangerous toxins every day.

Often the air inside is more polluted than outside air. This is partly due to mould growth caused by damp. Yes, even if it doesn’t primarily rain in winter, inland homes are also subjected to damp and mould. And if you’re not aware, mould is harmful to your health.

As we’ve mentioned before, mould is the primary symptom of untreated damp. Whenever there’s excess moisture in your home, it will lead to damp. Excess moisture can originate from water leaks or poor ventilation.

How Does Poor Air Quality Affect Your Health?

Air pollution, whether outdoors or indoors, is bad for your health. Common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, coughing, sneezing, skin and eye irritations and breathing difficulties. Mould growth can also cause allergies and other respiratory illnesses such as asthma. If left untreated, it can advance to lung failure. While it can affect anyone, children, pregnant women, the elderly and animals are more susceptible.

Improve Indoor Air Quality with Damp Proofing

Have you been suffering from unexplained health issues? If your symptoms include one or more of the above mentioned, it might be a good idea to monitor your indoor air quality with a simple test. You know what they say, prevention is better than cure.

If you do find signs of damp in your home, or if you want to prevent damp and mould growth in future, damp-proofing is a quick and easy solution to improve the air quality in your home significantly.
