Ceilings VS Water Leakage, Guess Who Wins

Have you read the news recently? There was a video taken of a leaking ceiling collapsing in a mall in Shanghai. The incident was originally speculated by netizens to have taken place in Jewel Changi Airport but has since been debunked. However, the main issue remains: Water seepage / water leakage is a real issue that has potential to cause damage that is potentially fatal.

In relation to water leaks that DID occur at Jewel Changi Airport, take a look at the following links as reported by The Straits Times and Channels New Asia earlier this year respectively:

Fortunately in both cases, it seems nobody was injured. One can only imagine the unnecessary repair costs that will also involve heaps of paperwork and months of processing. How does this apply to you?

Well, all houses have ceilings too (at least ours do!). And these walls above our heads are lined with water pipes and the like. The unprecendented accidents from the articles above all point to poor infrastructure, which may lead you to think that you have no control over water leakage happening in your household.

You may also think that if it is your ceiling that is damaged, that the financial repercussion would befall your neighbour upstairs instead of yourself.  As stated in this legal advice article pertaining to ceiling leaks, depending on what housing type you reside in, responsibility in footing the repair bills is more commonly split between both parties.

Ok. Water leakage is scary. Where do I go from here?

1. Inspect your home
2. In the event that your ceiling is already affected by water leakage, here are some things you can do
3. Call for a waterproofing contractor to check for any water leakage detection
