2. Pre-monsoon check: Cracks and crevices in walls not just ruin the rich look of your house, they also allow water and moisture to seep in. Before you go for waterproofing, make sure the cracks and patches are properly filled. Allow the fillers to dry, sand away uneven areas and then go for waterproofing.

3. Waterproofing: Whether you live in an area that receives heavy rainfall or moderate rainfall, waterproofing can protect your house from the damaging effect of invading moisture. If your exterior walls are not waterproofed, then they tend to become a haven for mildew and mould. Mildew and mould not only make the exteriors look ugly, but they can also pose a threat to your health. Proper waterproofing can help you keep these problems at bay while you enjoy the rain from your balcony while sipping a hot cup of tea.

4. Invest in a good primer while painting: Using a good primer before painting the exterior of your house creates a non-porous surface. Besides ensuring a clean and smooth surface, high-quality primer provides additional protection to your walls from humidity and moisture. It also increases the durability of the paint and prevents the formation of patches on the exterior walls.
