Roof Waterproofing

Home \ Waterproofing \ Roof Waterproofing

Roof waterproofing is probably the most important step in the roof installation process because it protects the materials your home was built with, as well as all the things you keep inside. Avoiding a leak collecting in your ceiling is a matter of prevention. Learning about what it takes to waterproof a roof is important so that you can see if your roof needs maintenance, or if a leak was repaired properly.

    What Is Roof Waterproofing? Why Do You Need Roof Waterproofing?

    Roof waterproofing is the layer of extra protection added to your roof that guarantees no water gets inside your home or starts causing the walls or support beams to rot. There are many causes of roof leaks, with inadequate roof waterproofing at the top of that list.

    When you live in Singapore, rain season are part of the routine. Frequent rains will become a huge problem if your home has a roof that hasn’t been properly waterproofed for several reasons:

    • Damage To The Roof Structure

    Damage to your roof can be very dangerous if left for too long. Continuous dampness, as well as mold formation, could break down support beams over time, which could cause your roof to collapse in that area.

    • Water Stains On Walls And Ceilings

    While not hazardous, these stains are unsightly and very difficult to remove.

    • Moldy And Mossy Exterior Walls

    Moss and mold have the potential to add a “cottage in the woods” feel to your home and nothing says neglect quite like the appearance of these in homes that aren’t surrounded by miles of forest.

    Why should you choose our roof waterproofing service?

    Our roof waterproofing services can help you:

    • Damage Prevention

    Waterproofing is the best way to prevent water leakages for your home beforehand. Nonetheless, scheduled roof maintenance after every six months can help reduce the rate of deterioration on your roof. You don’t want to stress up struggling with expenses and the time required for water seepage repairs, not to mention the costly remediation of mold.

    • Evade Health Hazards

    Your basement or crawl space needs proper waterproofing to shun away germs and mold. As you may be aware, germs and mold can be harmful to your health and it can be more serious for someone who is suffering from a respiratory condition or a weakened immune system. The good thing is that the process of waterproofing roof is an easy and cost effective way to avert any such risks before they set in.

    • Live Better

    Obviously, you don’t want a life of having to deal with dampness and a smelly basement every time there is some showering. On the other hand, it’s even harder to assume the smell in a dumpy house and that means you would have to spend on damp treatment. Luckily, you have the option to make your home waterproof. With that, you can be sure of a safer, dry and much comfortable living space.

    • Safeguard Your Asset

    Waterproofing the foundation, crawl space and basement of your home guarantees the protection of the rest of your property. These three areas could face grave effects of water damage, thus every effort ought to be employed to secure them.

    • Energy Efficiency and Simplified Maintenance

    A coat of waterproof spray can be formulated with reflective ingredients to keep away infrared radiations from your building. This in return lowers cooling expenses and in the long run, helps you save energy generally.

    Besides that, a waterproof coat on your existing roof membrane makes roof maintenance tasks simpler and less extensive. To enhance that, your roofing contractor might decide to use the bitumen or built-up roof.

    Method and Technology For Roof Waterproofing

    Many people assume that the shingles and tiles of their roofs are all it takes to keep their ceilings from dripping at the first sign of rain when actually these are only the first line of defense against any severe weather.

    Depending on what materials were used to construct the various roof components, and how old the roof is, the tiles may crack or fall off, and the shingles may curl, erode, rot, or blow off. This leaves you with an obvious problem, which is why the underlying materials are so important. These include:

    • Base Sheet

    A roofing base sheet is the bottom of the waterproofing layers and is usually made of fiberglass, reinforced polyester, or composite reinforcement. Base sheets are the first layer over the decking board and seal the rafters and the roof foundation.

    • Underlayment

    The underlayment is a water-resistant material that acts as an extra layer of protection from harsh weather. Roofing underlayment comes in several forms, which differ for sloping and flat roofs.

    • Sloping roof underlayment can be made from 90 pound felt, a tile cap sheet, or modified bitumen (this is installed using hot asphalt, it is a self-adhered underlayment).
    • Flat roofs make use of different fiberglass ply sheets that are mechanically attached and modified bitumen cap sheets which can be  hot-mopped, self-adhered or torch applied depending on the system used.
    • Flashing

    Roof flashing is the metal or modified sheets found around vents, skylights, chimneys, and valleys, and at joints on vertical walls. Flashing diverts water from areas where it might accumulate, such as valleys, returns, and hips.

    Flashing is generally made from various types of metal, including galvanized, aluminum, copper, or stainless steel.

    • Gutters

    Similar to roof flashing, gutters divert water that is collecting on the roof to an area further from your home. Gutters require regular upkeep and maintenance to prevent them from becoming clogged or sagging.

    If not positioned correctly when installed, gutters can actually cause roof rot by making waterflow back onto the roof instead of removing it.

    Triflex Metal Coat – The metal roof has stood the test of time in the field of industry. Not only

    does it provide cost-effective protection against the effects of weather, but an insulated metal roof is also the preferred solution for complying with the new German energy saving regulations. Metals are also used for facade cladding, containers and tanks, pipework and process apparatus as well as many other constructions. Metals that are exposed to the effects of weather as well as mechanical loads corrode at a faster rate, leading to surface rust, blistering rust and eventually scaling. This compromises the functionality of the metal roof. Triflex has almost 40 years experience of using durable waterproofing and

    coating systems in the world of building refurbishment. Triflex Metal Coat is a functional coating that was specially developed for metal roofs. It protects against corrosion and prolongs the life of metal roofs and constructions.
