How Leak-proof is Your House?


A beautiful home speaks tons of your creative personality and aesthetics sense but imagine this beauty taking an ugly U-turn the moment your home-sweet-home starts showing signs of seepage, or a fine leakage or even fine cracks. All the hard work goes in vain, in just no time…


Well, we say so as Team Allwhatshewants has personally experienced it. Living in NCR compared to Mumbai is a relief when it comes to the experience of leakage or seepage but if the construction quality is poor or too old, even the capital city is no bliss. Also, some of the architectural flaws are visible only at a later stage when your house begins to show prominent signs of seepage. For us, the latter turned out to be a nightmare. “ I live in a beautiful duplex and construction-wise, it looks pretty sturdy despite being close to two decades old. But some of the design flaws, I noticed quite recently, like our bathroom on the first floor is right on the top of our lovely kitchen, which is on the ground floor. Off late, the seepage has been spoiling the look of the kitchen despite the regular distemper and maintenance. It somehow feels that a proper waterproofing of the floor and the walls is a must as not much can be done with the architectural design now,” shares Supriya Himanshu, Founder &Editor,

Water-proofing is one of the key essentials of a beautiful home that deserves all the long-life and appreciations for the years to come.

But with brands like Dr. Fixit, you can relax and take a back-seat as this brand will make sure to get the leakage and structural audit done for your home or even society you live in so as to offer you a healthy and durable shelter.
