Why roof waterproofing needs to be done immediately?

by Nitin Gohil Construction Chemicals Division

The roof protects the house from a number of environmental elements. So, it is your duty to protect your roof from water leakage so that the roof can serve your home in a better way. Waterproofing the roof is definitely an important part of every building construction. Modern architects pay special attention to roof waterproofing as they know faulty design of the roof might give rise to a number of problems, the prominent among them being water leakage issues. Keeping provision for roof waterproofing might increase your budget, but the cost you would save in the long run is unmatched.

The best thing is that there are a number of roof waterproofing methods available today. The most common method is the use of adhesive based construction chemical which is applied on the floor of the terrace during plastering. So, if there is a leakage in the roof, the water starts getting accumulated in the gap between the roof and the terrace, but is unable to seep through the ceiling. Actually, the chemical forms a layer over the terrace preventing any kind of water seepage. It is recommended to hire expert masons for this job so that the chemical can be applied in a uniform way. Any gap anywhere would render the whole exercise useless. At the same time, you must remember that if the water keeps on accumulating in the gap between the roof and the ceiling, it might overflow and ruin the surroundings of your building. So, you must install a pipeline which would help in taking out the water.

Besides the use of adhesive based construction chemical while plastering the terrace, there are a number of other waterproofing solutions for the terrace available in the market. Here, we would like to put forward the advice to consult with a reputed architect so that you come to know about the latest technology in this regard. Getting your roof waterproofed using some of the modern methods might be a bit expensive and force you to increase your budget, but in the end, it will save your roof from causing you the roof repair expenses. The money you spend in waterproofing the roof initially will cover you for a number of years.

Here, you must remember that you should always go for branded roof waterproofing materials instead of the ordinary ones available in the market. Ordinary waterproofing materials are cheaper but might not be able to provide you the service you would expect from them. You should, in fact, consult with your architect to find out the best brand in this regard. If you feel your architect is being biased while recommending any brand, you can go for some online research yourself too. There are a number of sites which discuss the quality of various brands selling building materials.
