Waterproofing roof coatings stop leaks without the need to tear off your old covering and start over. The formulas we use will safeguard any type of flat roof from moisture, wind-driven rain, and melting snow for years and years. Save money, save time, and keep your home or business protected.
Low-sloped roofs tend to retain water in a process called ponding, and this wears away at the integrity of the surface. Rain and sun, environmental pollution and building movement all serve to weaken the materials over time. This gives standing water more of a chance to penetrate and damage your structure. And because of the lack of gravity, it is difficult to tell where leaks start. They take longer to identify, and then you have a bigger problem.
Elastomers have a good deal of stretch to them, as the name suggests. When it’s hot out, your rooftop materials expand, and when it’s cooler, they shrink slightly. Our coating moves along with them. It won’t break, tear or crack. Water has no chance of getting inside.
Chemicals held in two tanks are combined on contact and expand as they dry on the surface. As they do, they instantly form a waterproof layer on top. Underneath, millions of tiny gaseous cells serve two purposes:
They provide a thick, unbreakable layer of insulation right on top of the roof. One inch provides an R-Value of 7. That’s important to keep heat and moisture out of your interior.
They prevent leaks from forming and damaging your substrate. If the foam coating ever sustains a puncture from flying debris, the damage will stay localized and is easily repaired.
Both types of waterproofing barriers are applied as a liquid and dry solid. That means they do not have seams that can come apart or edges that can curl. They are applied right over protrusions like vents or pipes. One continuous surface means unbreakable protection.
Unlike a tear-off and reroof, waterproofing is easy and fast. There’s no big mess or excessive noise disrupting your day, and the costs are cut if half – or even lower. After cleaning and preparing the surface, we use airless sprayers to apply the material to the highest professional standards. In most cases, you won’t even know we are there.
Not only do our waterproofing roof solutions guard against moisture, they will also lower your electric bills – a benefit everyone wants. We use Energy Star-rated products in light and white to block out 85 to 90 percent of solar energy. The difference is noticed right away.
