Improper hinge size can cause stability issue

Detect Issues

Hinges not flushed within window section.

Describe Issues

The size of the hinges not matching with the window section, due to which hinges not flushing within window section and hence it is not  tightly  fixed as required. These will eventually cause stability issues of both hinges & panel and there will be chances of panel getting detached from window section.

If not rectified at the right time, will hamper occupants by adding repair cost and damage and also become a safety issue.

Direct Solutions

We recommend vendor to review & replace with suitable size hinge.

Damaged insulation can affect your home

Detect Issues

Damaged insulation around AC gas pipe.

Describe Issues

Damaged insulation around AC gas pipe will lead to condensation of moisture due to surrounding warm air around cold piping. Condensed moisture will further damage the surrounding areas by intruding through weaker junction. If not rectified at right time will damage the related walls and create  unhealthy condition for residents in future.

Direct Solutions

We recommend replacing the damaged insulation and / or winding to be done with suitable insulation tape.

Purpose of Insulation in AC

Insulation in air conditioning system is primarily used to prevent contact with surrounding warm air and thereby preventing the icing of water vapour and condensation on cold surface.

Fill the junction gaps to save walls

Detect Issues

Popping off paint noted on wall surface.

Describe Issues

Moisture is originated from adjacent kitchen sink area. This has happened due to gap between sink counter & counter beading on wall surface at kitchen side. If source is not rectified at the right time, can further cause paint deterioration and other damages in the attached / associated areas. This will create unhealthy living conditions for residents and add a cost & time lag during repair.

Direct Solutions

We recommend joint cleaning & filling with stone grout of matching pigment.

Improper wire connections can cause fire hazard

Detect Issues

MCB is overheating.

Describe Issues

This can burn the distribution box and cause fire and safety hazard for residents. If rectified at the right time, it will keep you & your home safe.

Direct Solutions

Overheating is due to loose wire connections with MCB. We recommend jointing using LUG.

Purpose of Lugs at electrical wiring

Cable lugs are connecting devices used primarily for terminating and joining cable & wire conductors in electrical installations and equipment.

Improper slope causes seepage & surface deterioration

Detect Issues

Reverse slope at window external sill.

Describe Issues

Due to reverse slope towards window, external rain water will not drain easily and water will penetrate inside house through frame and sill junction. This will lead to paint deterioration and other damages internal wall surface around window in long run.

Direct Solutions

Recommend masonry repair at external sill providing adequate slope towards external side.

Switchboard near gas stove – safety hazard

Detect Issues

Improper position of switchboard near gas stove.

Describe Issues

Position of a switchboard near gas stove is unsafe as there is high probability of electrical hazard which can easily spread in associated areas due to presence of gas stove near it. It is a safety hazard for occupants.

Direct Solutions

We recommend to reposition the switch board for safety purpose.

Be flexible but not with sink outlet pipe

Detect Issues

Flexible pipe used as a sink drain outlet.

Describe Issues

Using flexible pipe as a sink drain outlet may lead to blockage at concealed drain pipe line. It can hamper occupants by creating unhealthy and unhygienic condition. It also adds cost and time lag due to repair work.

Direct Solutions

We recommend to install a suitable trap (Bottle / S / P type traps) for sink drain outlet.

Meaning of trap

A plumbing trap is provided to receive solid waste from washbasin, kitchen sinks and other appliances .This reduces the chance of drain blocking.

Salt can enhance the taste of food but not the quality of your home

Detect Issues

Efflorescence noted at wall surface.

Describe Issues

If efflorescence not treated at the right time, then its effect would be dampness on wall surface which will be leading to various damages like paint deterioration, disintegration of masonry & plaster and damage to associated areas.This will create unhealthy living conditions for residents and add a cost & time lag due to repair.

Direct Solutions

We recommend sanding, washing the area with salt neutralizer and rewashing with fresh water.

Meaning of Efflorescence

Efflorescence is the salt deposition on brick, concrete, stone, paint or other building surfaces. It has a white or greyish tint.

Proper grouting can keep your home safe from moisture / damp

Detect Issues

Grouting not provided at junction between floor drain outlet pipe and floor tile (Bathroom / Kitchen).

Describe Issues

If grouting not provided at junction between floor drain outlet pipe and floor tile, there will be moisture seepage and spread through junction.

This will ultimately lead to unhealthy & unhygienic condition for residents and can lead to deterioration at below storey ceiling surface in due course of time.

By providing proper grouting, we can keep our home safe and healthy.

Direct Solutions

Recommend to provide uniform grouting at junction of floor drain outlet and floor tile.

Meaning of grouting

It is the process of filling the gap at junction with suitable material.

Do you know from where the moisture monster (seepage) is coming?

Detect Issues

Gap noted in between wall and floor tiles in bathroom.

Describe Issues

These gaps will be a path for water to flow and hence will create dampness / seepage in associated areas. This source of water, if not rectified can increase damage in associated / attached areas of the property and also create unhealthy living conditions and add negative aesthetic impression apart from costly repairs

Direct Solutions

We recommend:
Step 1 - Existing tile joint filler to be removed by mechanical or manual process.
Step 2 - Tile joints to be filled using appropriate tile grout, as per manufacturer’s specification.

Meaning of grout

A suitable material used for filling the gap at junction.
