Abstract: A building or structure needs waterproofing, as concrete itself will never be so perfectly placed as to be watertight on its own. The waterproofing system may not be visible to the community upon completion, but yet, it is a critical behind-the scene building component beneath the surfaces of the interior and exterior façade of the building. Despite being such an important building component, waterproofing system failure is still one of the most common defects in Singapore residential building. The aim of this study is to resolve and prevent waterproofing system failure in new residential building and examines the current practice of rectifying water seepages or leakages problem in existing residential apartments. These objectives arises because of the reccurrence of failure in waterproofing systems in Singapore residential buildings. Survey will be carried out to collect important data and useful information from professionals whose works involves waterproofing issues one way or another. A waterproofing remedial work programme will be formulated based on the results derived from the analysed data. The waterproofing remedial work programme not only applicable to rectify existing waterproofing problems but also can be used as a preventive measures for waterproofing failure in future residential building.
