Waterproofing of the roof is one of the essential aspects of roof care to prevent water damage. While most roofs are constructed to resist water to some extent, constant exposure to the elements may compromise the structure of your home. Let alone a natural disaster, even a single spell of heavy showers may lead to the occurrence of cracks or leaks that makes a pathway for moisture to seep in and damage your home.
Roof waterproofing by professional roof waterproofing service providers in Bangalore can prevent your home is sloughing water away and insulate your home efficiently. While choosing the type of waterproofing, you need to keep in mind the type of roof and the weather conditions of the place that you live in.

Here are some roof waterproofing methods that are popular with our customers:
Cementitious membrane are popular due to their excellent weather resistance, load bearing capacity, scratch resistance and surface protection qualities. Cement based waterproofing slurries can be applied easily to complex surface shapes and provide a joint free and monolithic look even to complex surfaces.
Liquid applied membranes
As professional waterproofing service providers we suggest using liquid waterproofing membranes for various applications such as green roofs, that have a lot of penetrations, buried roofs that are typically found in the form of elevated decks or under-garden structure or even inverted roofs. The biggest advantage of liquid waterproofing is that is easily applicable, is applied seamlessly and even has the flexibility to expand and contract with changes in temperature.
One longevity centric roof waterproofing option is the use of bitumen roofing. Bituminous roofing has a high tensile strength and is unlikely to develop any cracks even in extreme weather conditions, unlike other membranes. The other advantage of this roofing material is that it provides an insulating layer that checks the flow of heat throughout the system. There are two types of bitumen membranes that you can choose from:
Atactic Polypropylene (APP)- This type of bitumen roofing is heat welded or torch applied as it is a thermoplastic polymer that yields a plastic like quality.
Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS)-This is type of bitumen based roofing can be applied using a cold adhesive. There are also ones with adhesive backing that give a rubber like appearance.
