How to solve these problems:
Unfortunately, all the effective methods to solve these problems are quite invasive and can end up being quite costly. Foundations in some areas must be exposed to be water proofed. Roofs and slabs might need to be redone or resealed with water proof agents. In extreme cases, walls might need to be demolished, rebuilt and repainted.
In conclusion, as the age old adage goes, prevention is better than cure. Hire competent designers and builders and you will not have to worry about such problems.
