Waterproofing commercial properties is very important because it helps preserve the building. If your waterproofing is failing, your property may develop cracks and other structural issues. You can hire roof replacement contractors to help you fix the issues, but it helps to understand how waterproofing works.
Without proper waterproofing, commercial buildings and even residential ones may have safety issues. Aside from that, they may lose significant resale value. Good thing, you can take some preventive measures before extreme issues arise.
Waterproofing Issues and Solutions
Roofing Issues – The most common waterproofing issues are caused by poor or damaged roofing system. This is especially common in flat roofs because pools of water form on the roof whenever it rains. When the water seeps into the system, it may cause leaks on the ceiling. To solve this issue, you can have roof inspections regularly performed on your system. This will prevent major issues from developing on your roof.
Faulty waterproofing – If you have already waterproofed your property in the past, but you’re still experiencing issues, the waterproofing may be faulty. If not correctly done, waterproofing may cause moisture issues. This will lead to the slow deterioration of your property. To avoid this, always check if the roof, doors and windows are properly sealed and waterproofed. If you still have moisture issues after that, you can consult a reliable staff to fix the issue for you.
Wrong waterproofing membrane – You have to make sure that your building’s waterproofing system can resist chemicals, harsh weather conditions and other outside factors. The waterproof membrane should be flexible and last for a very long time.
