        Well, the monsoon brings rains but also brings along problems like leaking walls, termite infestation, fungi, dampness and moisture that can ruin furniture and accessories. Lot of things need to be taken care of beforehand.

          Right! We already have water seepage in walls, even before the arrival of monsoon. It will increase it seems or will it?

            During monsoons, the walls of any house should be protected as a basic structural element. A simple way to keep the interiors safe during the monsoons is to keep the exteriors of the house intact. But that would be a difficult task for those living in flats. So interiors have to be protected in majority of cases.

              External work during monsoons or any other time of the year is not possible for people living in flats, unless the society carries out such work.

                Yes, that is a fact. The society can undertake such work on a whole as it is impossible to externally repair one single flat in a building for obvious reasons.

                  It has been raining a lot here in Mumbai and there has already been a leakage in our building. One of my neighbour's bedroom has seepage all over on one side of the wall and he has been consulting people to repair it. The problem is that he lives on the higher floor and exterior work is not feasible if not impossible. One of the contractors around here told him that they can get the exterior done too but that wouldn't help as it would be patch up work just on the exterior wall of his flat but the rest of the structure would be the same and the seepage might still continue. Now they are trying to mend it from inside.

                    Talking about internal repairs - what kind of repairs can stop or minimise the seepage during the monsoons, if the seepage is owing to external factors like cracks in the external walls?
