Renovation - Week 02A - The Waterproof Test


The waterproof test, for the most wet areas in Reiki Sanctuary, is being carried out since yesterday morning.  For the next 48 hours, Chiauw will be on standby and she must be available immediately [together with SanMei] to resolve the matters should there be any leakages problems to our neighbour's ceilings downstairs.

The purpose of the waterproof test is to ensure for long term durability, resilience, quality, strength and effective flooring solutions.  Chiauw has given specific friendly instructions to our neighbour downstairs.  This test, definitely, benefits them too.

We must add that this waterproof test is highly professional. Not many HDB contractors will do such a procedure. Probably, it is too expensive and too time consuming. Both Chiauw and SanMei are on full 48 hours standby and must come down to the site immediately should there is a leak and will affect the ceiling of our neighbour downstairs.

This procedure is highly effective, not only that it provides peace of mind to us and our neighbour downstairs. Where Chiauw and SanMei have done such test elsewhere, we have personally experienced the problem of water leakage during the waterproof test. It was at our previous home where our neighbour was renovating her house.

Chiauw and SanMei came almost immediately after a call about the leakage and problem was immediately rectified.

To the professionals, such waterproof test is all about physics and water. About materials contraction and weightage. When properly done, contractions and leakages are avoided for at least 15 years.

There will be, strictly, no other renovation works to be carried during this period.  SanMei will only continue the renovation on Friday afternoon.  She will have to start erecting the kitchen plinth and installing tiles to the kitchen and toilet floors and also, the toilets' walls.

Water, water everywhere:

01.  Waterproofing in Kitchen Area


02.  Waterproofing in Guest Toilet


03.  Waterproofing in MBR Toilet


The tiles will be delivered on Friday morning.  The black tile is for Kitchen floor; white will be at the chute area wall and also the wall for Guest Toilet.  Missing picture is another black tile [matte] for toilets.
