Re: RCC sump tank seepage

Thanks will try pidifine 2K
Should it be applied only on leaky area or whole inner surface should be given 2 coats ?

Pidilite (Dr.fixit) has too many similar sounding products on website with overlapping roles.
I saw another one which is kind of PU coating to be applied by brush or roller.

Re: turnkey or labour contract better?

If you want to cut cost and build fast go for GFRG construction. The only condition is house design should be simple 4 side wall in room kind as walls in GFRG are load bearing. You can cut costs by around 25% for same finish over block construction. I have seen 3/4 GFRG homes and I studied lots of t...

Re: PVC wardrobes and kitchen cabinates

When you say PVC does it mean PVC laminate over ply or the PVC sheet/board ?
I saw PVC laminate where 90 degree bend is possible and gives good finish however Carpenter needs to be familiar working with the material.
