Don’t wait for big expenditure – Replace leaking pipe

Detect Issues

Peeling off paint noted on front wall.

Visual Image

Thermal Image

Describe Issues


As seen by infrared images of both internal side & external side of affected area, flow of moisture noted from roof level. The moisture damage observed is mainly originated due to leak in pipe from Roof. As observed, moisture flow is in walls from roof level and hence damaged the surface. If not rectified soon, moisture will flow and damage the associated/ attached areas. This will hamper occupants by creating unhealthy living conditions and also create high cost of repair.

Direct Solutions

We recommend defective pipe to be replaced by plumber.

Proper grouting can be saviour for you and neighbour

Detect Issues

Moisture patch noted on balcony wall-ceiling junction.

Visual Image

Thermal Image

Describe Issues

As seen by infrared image moisture patch noted on balcony wall-ceiling junction & the same moisture is noted inside adjacent bedroom upper side of balcony door. The moisture is originated from above floor balcony outlet area; due to gap between floor outlet & flooring. This gap has become moisture seepage pathway and is spreading moisture in below floor. If this source of moisture is not rectified at proper time, will spread and damage the associated area further. Thereby will create difficulty for occupants by creating unhealthy living conditions and adding extra cost due to its repair.

Direct Solutions

We recommend floor outlet to be cleaned by wire brushing & grouting by plumber with ’tile grout’/ readymade repair mortar.

Protect your child from injury – improper window size

Detect Issues

Window is of long size with low window sill height.

Describe Issues

This window due to current size and low sill height would be a tripping hazard – a safety concern especially for children in homes. If not taken care, can be a safety hazard in future. Its rectification is easy and must be done for safety.

Direct Solutions

We recommend client to review and suitable aluminium tube to be fitted to act as guard rail.

We check standard codes for foods – why not for wires ?

Detect Issues

16A socket board fitted with non ISI marked 1.5 sq mm wire.

Describe Issues

As per standard 1.5 Sq mm is not advisable for 16 Amps socket. Additionally Non ISI marked wires are less fire resistant and have tendency to melt with high loads. They also do not have good insulation. Non ISI marked wires could have less longevity, are less safer and ecofriendly as compared to ISI marked wire. So, it is better to have ISI marked wires which will be a step towards safer home and also would be better in longer run.

Direct Solutions

We recommend to provide ISI marked wire with required gauge as per standard.

Do you have access to False Ceiling? It is needed!

Detect Issues

No trap door provision at false ceiling.

Describe Issues

Ceiling trap door is used in false ceilings to access plumbing pipes or valves, electrical conduit, AC gas pipe for service, maintenance, and repairs. It might appear a small problem but it is important to provide trap door in false ceiling as there can be chances of leakage in pipe or some problem in AC gas pipe insulation & electrical conduit, which can be easily repaired by providing for it. This will provide access to plumbing pipes, electrical conduit or AC pipe lines during repair which will be saviour for residents in future.

Direct Solutions

We recommend to provide a trap door provision of suitable size.

Interior/ Exterior areas – Need specific type of paint

Detect Issues

Interior grade paint used in the outside of windows in external wall.

Describe Issues

Interior grade paint applied in outside of window can’t sustain weathering action for long period. Paints formulated for exterior use contain additives that give them longevity in the elements – including resistance to cracking and dirt resistance, as well as protection from the damage ultraviolet (UV) rays cause. Also exterior paints are made to combat against fading and mildew.
Different paints have different properties, and are formulated for different purposes. Usage of interior grade paint for external surface can cause deterioration of surface, due to which there are chances of moisture seepage which will add to high repair cost and inconvenience.

Direct Solutions

We recommend upgrading the same with exterior grade paint.

Unfilled gaps can be a source for moisture

Detect Issues

Gap noted in between rainwater outlet pipe & roof flooring.

Describe Issues

Rainwater outlet is duct wall mounted. Gap noted in between rainwater outlet pipe & roof flooring. This will cause rainwater to seep in through the gap between rainwater outlet pipe & roof flooring. If gap not uniformly sealed at right time, water will spread in attached/ associated areas below roof and cause severe damage in the long run. Thereby hassle residents in future with high repair cost and unhealthy living conditions.

Direct Solutions

We recommend floor outlet to be cleaned by wire brushing & uniform grouting with ’tile grout’/ non-shrink grout by professional plumber.

Don’t go for temporary solution, choose permanent one

Detect Issues

Door frame & wall junction sealed with putty filler.

Describe Issues

Both materials, i.e. door frame and wall, being different have different thermal movements. Putty being a rigid filler material, will peel off during operation of frame. This will create a moisture path, hence affecting the associated areas in long run. If not taken care at right time can generate a problem for occupants.

Direct Solutions

We recommend gap around frame along wall junction to be uniformly sealed with silicone sealant in dry condition as per manufacturer’s specification.

Plywood at external side can create a path for moisture

Detect Issues

Discoloration noted at wall under the window sill.

Describe Issues

As seen by infrared image flow of moisture noted from under the external sill. Ply wood is used under the window sill at external side & crack noted on it. Water seep-in noted from the plywood. Plywood makes the wood porous and susceptible to water damage. Thereby creating moisture path and causing discolouration at internal wall surface. If not rectified timely, moisture will spread and damage the entire wall.

Direct Solutions

We recommend chemical pasting of stone above the plywood with epoxy joint filling.

Carrom pocket earns point, water pocket drains money

Detect Issues

Water pocket noted near floor drain outlet.

Describe Issues

Inadequate slope at flooring can lead to formation of water pockets, hence floor water will not get drained easily from floor drain outlet and get accumulated at the corner. It will lead to damp/ moisture seepage related issues in adjacent areas, and also water seepage in the below floors. This can cause damage to property/ associated area and health issues in long run. Moreover its rectification will cost large amount and time factor.

Direct Solutions

We recommend client to review and if required, floor tiles to be relaid maintaining proper slope towards floor drain outlet and adequate strengthening of floor and wall tile junction with grout.
