Waterproofing Systems For Your Roof

Published on September 16th, 2015

You need to ensure that your roof is built well in order to get the most out of it. However, there are still times when the best-built roof experiences problems that may cause leaking. Leaking is detrimental to the health of your roof and your building overall, so the best idea is to ensure that you keep it leak-free, with the best waterproofing coating systems.

Coatings which are made without water are actually better than waterborne ones. They are stronger, they transfer less moisture and they do more to protect your roof. These roofs are much better for metal roof rustproofing and sealing. Waterborne coatings on the other hand, may allow water to dissipate, can provide UV and cooling benefits (much like the non-waterborne coatings) and can be used where solvent use is forbidden.

You can let us help you to choose the type of roof coatings that are best for you. For instance, in the case of a metal roof, you should choose the stronger solvent system that will not rust – acrylics may stick to metal, but they aren’t the best choice for metal roofs.

There are many benefits you can gain from installing a roof waterproofing system. Here they are:

  • Solves current leaking problems and prevents new leaking problems
  • Roof cost and sustainability savings
  • Reduces waste and expense caused by a cycle of premature roof replacement
  • Lessens cooling energy expenses and provides immediate cool roofing (when using a roof coating that meets Energy Star requirements)
  • Increases roof’s durability of roof towards weather, UV rays and extends roof life
  • Lessens likelihood of future maintenance caused by thermal shock (sudden changes in temperature caused by the weather)
