Nano-G Hacking or No Hacking Waterproofing Solutions

Should I Use a Hacking or No-Hacking Waterproofing Method for Water Leaking Issues?

Looking for a quick fix to your waterproofing issues but a little confused on how different methods may benefit your home, business, or office? Here is a simple explainer on hacking or no-hacking waterproofing solutions.

As a property owner, looking for waterproofing fixes can be quite stressful! You might be wondering “How many off days do I have to sacrifice for a full renovation of my leaking bathroom?”, “If I take on a no-hacking service, will it be just as effective?”, or “Which is the best solution for my home, office, or business, really?”

First and foremost, what is the difference between Hacking and No-Hacking waterproofing?

Hacking waterproofing requires the contractor to hammer, or knock at your flooring to fix water leakage issues. The contractor will usually be required to hack out your tiles and failed waterproofing membranes to reapply a new waterproofing solution. Once the solution is fully dried, a new concrete screed is to be applied before the new tiles are laid down on top of it. While hacking methods really do help renew your property’s structural waterproofing, this is a very noisy and dusty process!

Perfectly fine tiles have to be cracked and scraped off your surfaces during the hacking process. If you aren’t willing to let your nice bathroom tiles go to waste, hacking waterproofing should be your last resort!

Many homeowners realise too late that their homes remain dusty even after a thorough cleaning. On top of the mess, you may not be able to actually use your bathroom, balcony, or kitchen during the days or weeks it takes for the solutions to completely dry. That is why we only recommend hacking methods as the last resort when no-hacking methods have failed. Discomfort aside, the micro-dust particles in the air and on surfaces are quite hazardous for loved ones with asthma or other respiratory issues. 

Hacking waterproofing is a form of renovation work that requires your contractor to knock open your flooring to solve issues. Oftentimes, this method leaves the home in a big dusty mess that gets into hard-to-reach corners, bedding materials, clothes, and more.

On the other hand, no-hacking waterproofing methods are less invasive. One example of an effective no-hacking method is Nano-G Nanotechnology Waterproofing. Our solution deals directly with hairline cracks that cause water seepage issues in your bathroom, kitchen, balcony, or even car porch. We use an innovative nanotechnology waterproofing solution that penetrates deep into surfaces, providing grouts and flat roofs hydrophobic protection that prevents water from getting absorbed into the concrete. The Greek technology we use to create our solution has been certified by the world’s most stringent environmental standards from the ISO and the Singapore Green Labeling Scheme. To add to that, we are appointed by the Ministry of Health (MOH) as the go-to experts in waterproofing maintenance and rectification for government hospitals nationwide.

We recommend homeowners only resort to hacking waterproofing when they plan on renovating their entire bathroom, balcony, or kitchen floor. This is especially the case for older buildings, as these ageing structures may not be able to handle the force caused during operations.

Figuring out what’s really causing your water leak is the first step to determining if you should choose a hacking or no-hacking method. Read up on how to tell the difference between a broken pipe or a hairline crack!
