Materials For Waterproofing And Roofing

Why do I need to waterproof my roof?

If you’re thinking of installing a new flat roof, you must have an effective waterproof system. Without one, your roof will quickly get damaged by the wind and rain – particularly in the humid climate.

This exposure will lead to rot and decay of the decking and insulation and could result in expensive repairs or even a brand new roof.

How can you protect your roof against the weather using bitumen?

Bitumen is commonly used for roof waterproofing, most commonly on residential properties. The process involves laying down layers of waterproofing materials across the roof, where they are then bonded with hot bitumen.

Then the bitumen coating is combined with a polyester carrier to create waterproofing materials on a roll. Then waterproofing material can be laid across the insulation or roof.

How is a cold application of bitumen different from a traditional heat application?
There are many different options for materials for waterproofing and roofing. If you’re looking for bitumen for roof waterproofing, you may consider a cold applied bitumen sealant.

This waterproofing material uses no heat in its application, but the great waterproofing result is exactly the same.
