The wide and varied uses of todays flat roof construction can lead to damage of the waterproofing. Even the best roofing systems can sustain damage from construction, maintenance or pedestrian traffic through its lifetime. Undetected, the smallest puncture, membrane split, or mechanical breach can be devastating, causing severe and costly structural decay, interior damage, wet insulation with loss of thermal performance and mould.
FOCUS ON PREVENTION
Finding a leak can be a hit-or-miss process as well as costly and time consuming, particularly when the roofing membrane is covered by a green roof or ballast. Removal of such is labour intensive and can create more problems than the original leak itself.
