Challenges / Solutions:

When water leaks into your house not only is it unattractive and a health risk, but it weakens the structure. Leaking roofs, unsealed balconies and rising damp are common causes. One needs to take the time to replace or seal any broken roof tiles. One must also ensure your balcony has proper drainage after storms and seal shower walls.
