Once you notice that your roof is leaking, like from water damage or a dripping ceiling, start looking for the source of the leak in your attic or crawl space underneath your roof. If you don’t have access to either of these locations, try scoping out the damage from outside your home.
Improved protection: Roof coatings can help protect your roof from severe weather, especially hail. Hailstones can cause extreme damage to your roof, but roof coatings add an additional layer of protection.
Roof cleaning is an important part of maintaining your roof. Clearing off snow, debris, dirt, and other natural elements can extend your roof’s lifespan and reduce any potential damage caused to both your roof and your home.
PU injection, also polyurethane grouting or injection, is a waterproofing technique that uses expanding injected polyurethane to prevent water flowing through and voids or cracks typically in concrete.
Concrete roofs are composed of sand, cement, and water. These materials are combined together to form a compound. It can be used to build not only roofs but also floors, ceilings, decks, and many more. It is also important to note that concrete is a heavy material.
The most common causes of cracking are: Ground movement (beneath foundations) caused by clay shrinkage, land slip, vibration, subsidence, settlement, heave, sway, and so on. Foundation failure due to the decay of soft clay brick, concrete erosion due to chemical contaminants, and so on.
Torch-on membrane waterproofing is a type of building waterproofing solution composed of bitumen and a variety of modified polymers. When applied to the surface of a structure, it prevents moisture and liquid from seeping through — which when ignored, can negatively impact the integrity of a building over time.
Fiberglass is a newer roofing system that lends itself best to flat roofing but is also suitable for pitched roofs in some applications. Fiberglass is much more durable than felt and stronger too. A fiberglass roof will last for more than 20 years and it’s less likely than felt to develop a fault.
