Roof waterproofing

by miamigardens

With the help of roof hydraulicization, you can protect the basement material from destruction and leaks, and therefore water from the building and condensate formation. Typically, the outer waterproofing of the roof is performed using bituminous materials and mastic. In addition, special waterproofing films designed for roofs also provide a high effect. And the inside of the roof is best protected with undercarbon films, they are attached to the rafters.

For the reliability of the roof, it is necessary to ensure not only high -quality roofing material, but also the correct implementation of all work. In order for the roof to perform the necessary functions and provide the desired comfort in the house, a complete protection of the roof elements is needed, the roof is necessarily waterproofing.

The history of roof waterproofing begins with bitumen. Then came rooferoid, permamine, and after them – glassisol and mastic. But now really high-quality bitumen-polymer mastic is quite expensive and therefore no one uses it to waterproof the roof. The most common waterproofing material in this case is the melted roll materials. They belong to a cheap segment, are created on a bitumen basis or with bitumen-polymer additives that give materials the properties of rubber and increase the strength of the waterproofing carpet.

According to technology, materials should be fused in 2 layers. Moreover, the first layer is applied without granulators, and the second with granulatory, it is it that will protect against UV radiation, increase the resistance of heating and mechanical damage. The main disadvantage of the melted materials is the difficulty of working with relief roofs.


Polymer PVC and TPO membranes are used. We advise profiled membranes to buy in the technological. Their advantages in fast styling, high indicators of technical characteristics, resistance to UV radiation. But there are still more minuses. And the most important drawback is the absence of continuous adhesion in the foundation.
