It rains a lot in South Florida, and when it does, many business owners wish they had hired a professional contractor for commercial waterproofing services. Any type of roof leak can cause huge problems in the future if they are not quickly repaired. Taking preventative measures is the best way to protect your roof and building interior. As you know, a roof is a costly investment. Waterproofing will help protect it against significant water damage.
What Is Waterproofing?
Waterproofing is a complex and effective treatment to prevent water from entering your building. It can also protect your building against South Florida’s persistent humidity, mold growth, mildew, and other forms of moisture. Moisture in any form can wreak havoc on a property, even moisture that comes from nearby soil. Waterproofing makes your building’s foundation more impervious to both moisture and water. At A-1 Tropic Painting & Waterproofing, we only use the highest-grade coatings when we work on offices, high rises, condominiums, warehouses, and other commercial properties.
Preserves Building’s Integrity
Many commercial roofs are flat, which makes it easy for ponding to occur. When this happens, it can weaken the material and cause rot. With time, the building will begin to lose its structural integrity. You can take preventative measures by waterproofing your property before structural damage occurs, or if you catch it in time, our contractors can preserve the building before it’s too late. However, we recommend taking the preventative route and do it before any kind of damage occurs.
Extends Your Roof’s Lifespan
Depending on your material, a commercial roof can last anywhere from 10 to 40 years with proper maintenance. When you waterproof it, this will literally provide an extra layer of protection, which can help extend your roof’s lifespan. Our coating will become your roof’s first line of defense against UV rays, hazardous materials, and the elements.
As a business owner, the last thing you probably want to be concerned with is regular roof maintenance. When you apply a waterproof membrane over your roof, this will reduce how much maintenance it requires. A bonus is because it adds an extra layer of protection, this reduces wear and tear, ultimately lowering costs for maintenance and repairs.
Increase Energy Efficiency
Since we are on the subject of surprising ways a waterproofed roof can save you money, let’s add reduced energy bills to the list. It will properly insulate your building and reflect heat, so your AC doesn’t have to do all the work. When moisture gets in your home, this also causes your AC to work harder, which waterproofing effectively prevents.
Does your roof need to be replaced, or will waterproofing resolve your problem? If it absolutely needs to be replaced, by no means is waterproofing a solution. However, a thick extra layering may be all your roof needs to continue to withstand the elements. This is a much more affordable and less time-consuming job than a complete roof replacement.
Protect All Outdoor Structures
Waterproofing isn’t just for your roof. The structural integrity of all outdoor structures must be considered, such as walkways, decks, and parking garages.
