Why Is Terrace & Roof Waterproofing Important?

Why Is Roof Waterproofing Important?

A roof or terrace is the top covering of your home that protects your loved ones and treasured possessions inside from rain and extreme weather conditions. In addition to protecting your home’s interior and exterior, it is also the most exposed part of your house, so it needs to be well taken care of. As a general rule, most people expect their roofs to be watertight as well as strong enough to withstand all of the challenges presented by nature. However, as a result of constant exposure to extreme weather conditions, roofs tend to deteriorate over time. Unless we prevent this damage, the entire building could suffer from water leaks, seepage and cracks. 

That’s why it’s important to have your roof waterproofed as soon as possible. A professional contractor like us can do this job quickly and efficiently, so you can rest easy knowing your home is protected from the elements.

To understand roof damage in greater detail, let us look at the following factors:

Monsoon: A major reason for water damage to roofs arises from the fact that monsoons are becoming more sporadic, unpredictable, and lasting well into winter.
Heat damage: Exposure to direct sunlight and heat for a prolonged period, not just during the summer months.
Cracks and gaps: Without repair and timely action, long-term exposure to environmental changes can widen and weaken the entire roof surface. There are many leak points on roofs, such as the gap between the door frame on the roof and the concrete.
Installations on roofs: Water tanks are generally installed on roofs. There are a lot of things that can damage a roof, including leaks from tanks, pipelines, and clogged drainage systems.

Benefits of Roof Waterproofing

The following are some of the noteworthy benefits of roof waterproofing.

Increases life-span of roof: Waterproofing coatings increase roof life-span by reducing the impact of extreme heat and sunlight. By protecting your roof from the effects of the environment and rain leaks, terrace waterproofing solutions can greatly extend the life of your roof.
Prevents damage to structure: Damage to your house’s structure can be prevented by preventing leaks from your roof. Water and moisture that seep in through the leaks slowly corrode your home’s steel beams and angles. Because concrete is a porous material, waterproofing the roof is necessary to prevent deterioration by harmful chemicals.
Commercial benefits: There is no doubt that waterproofing a roof is more cost-effective in the long run than repairing a leaky roof or replacing it with a new one. When you waterproof your roof, you extend its life and increase its durability, thereby increasing the commercial value of your home.
Keeps the home visually appealing:  A home that you’ve worked so hard to build can quickly become stained and blackened if there’s constant water seepage. When water leaks from the roof, mold and mildew grow inside the walls, giving them an unsightly look. This can be prevented by waterproofing a roof before it becomes vulnerable to leaks.
Ensure your health is protected: When a roof leaks, moisture seeps into the house and can cause breathing problems and allergies for those living there. In addition to mold, mildew can also pose a health risk to you. It is recommended that you get roof waterproofing done at an appropriate time as it will benefit the health of your family.
