a leaking roof or waterproofing your walls to cure damp problems. Preparation is the most important aspect of the waterproofing process,
the better the surface has been prepared before the waterproofing application
is done, the longer the waterproofing solution
will last. And as I am sure you know by now, you will notice if the application has not been done properly. Just wait for the first rain, it will be tested.

and external painting
