You may be surprised to know that wall leakage is a common problem in Singapore residential or commercial buildings. Wall leakage has nothing to do with structural integrity so you don’t have to worry about your property’s framework. In fact, most people face this problem at some point. Although not as critical, wall leakage pose several inconveniences to property owners, including paint peeling, growth of moulds and fungus, discolouration and more.
When ignored, wall leakage can be expensive to repair as you would need to fork out cash to have the whole area renovated. This implies that your home decreases in value too.

What are the common causes of wall leakage in Singapore?
Among the common causes are:
A Faulty Plumbing System
Poorly fitted pipes, leaking pipes, poor sewer system, excessive water supply pressure are just some of the causes.
A Leaking Storage Tank
Storage tank malfunctioning is sometimes the culprit, especially when there is excessive water pressure or due to lack of maintenance.
Poor Waterproofing Membrane Installation during Construction
It could also be due to contractors failing to properly install the waterproofing materials to prevent future water leakage during the construction phase.
Gathering of Water on the Roof
In Singapore, clogged gutters might be a problem, especially during the wet season. Water will find its way through the roof down to the ceiling and walls.
