The roof is the most important part of the home. It serves as a shield against ever-changing weather conditions like snow, hail, and rain. It also keeps the house cool in the winter and protects us from the heat in the summer. When it comes time to sell your home, a good roof will increase its value. Roof waterproofing is one of the best ways to keep your roof in good shape throughout the year. It will also protect the roof from other environmental threats such as mildew, mold, and algae, which are harmful to our health. In the long run, you’ll save money because you won’t have to pay for routine maintenance.
Here are 5 easy steps for an easy understanding of the roof waterproofing process:
Step-1: Surface preparation
Prepare the surface by proper cleaning with a wire brush and water.
Step-2: Strengthening the surface
Repair the cracks, honeycombing, and undulations on the terrace surface
Note: it becomes more important if waterproofing is done on old brick bat Coba or another old surface.
Step-3: Proper Sealing of drainage pipes
Areas near drainage pipes are prone to leakage. Seal it with due attention.
Step-4: Waterproofing chemical coating application
Apply the two coats of waterproofing chemical coatings.
Step-5: Protective layer on waterproofing coatings
If there are heavy foot movements, provide a protective layer on waterproofing coatings. Else, we can skip it.
