Why do concrete slabs leak?
Due to increased heat in day time, concrete slabs expand. And fall in temperature at night lead to contraction of concrete slab. This expansion and contraction of the concrete cause minute cracks initially on the ordinary cement roof slab. This is due to the brittle nature of cement concrete as the cement portion of it does not have the provision to expand or contract. Once the crack widens, water get inside the RCC slab and start wetting the inner surface which lead to the failing of water in droplets. Then the iron bars start corroding causing increase in volume and consequently enlargement of crack cause more leakage of roof. If not checked in time the strength of the building gets deteriorated considerably. Split Tiles are an excellent remedy to prevent such leakage.
The area has to be prepared by pouring cement grout on the slab surface and placing the split tiles over the grout, after splitting the tiles in to two parts. This can be achieved by hitting the side of the tile with a masonry trowel. Then the tiles to be laid at a gap of 3-4 mm between the tiles with adequate slope for water to drain and tiles are to be inserted into the parapet wall.
After one or two days of curing make sure that the tiles are holding on to the grout that has been laid underneath. Now the gaps between the tiles are filled with wet mix of cement, sand and waterproofing compound. After a normal curing the slab becomes waterproof.
