Flat Roof Waterproofing

Do you live in the Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia area and have a flat roof? Are you about to get your flat roof replaced? Have you been having roof leaking issues? If you answered yes to any of those questions, Shanco Companies offer just what you need!

Although flat roofing doesn’t require a whole lot of maintenance, it is vital that you get it waterproofed. In fact when it comes to flat roof installation and maintenance, nothing is more important than waterproofing!

What is Flat Roof Waterproofing?

If you’re looking for flat roof replacement or repair services, you may have heard the term “waterproofing.” Flat roof waterproofing is vital when it comes to protecting and extending the life of your roof.

The most common method of roof waterproofing for both homes and commercial buildings is applying water-resistant membrane on roofing materials or the roof itself. This membrane serves as a physical barrier that prevents water from seeping through the roofing materials – and also helps protect it from severe weather conditions. For instance, heavy downpours or hail can damage a roof (sometimes beyond repair), but with flat roof waterproofing, your roof is better protected.

Flat roofs are constantly exposed – more so than the sloped roofs you see on most houses – to direct sunlight, heavy rain and snow and other severe weathering. This is why waterproofing flat roofs is so important. In the Washington, DC Metropolitan area, there a number of waterproofing solutions that work well, including tar & gravel, modified asphalt membranes, elastomeric coatings, liquid rubber coatings (roll on and spray on), peel and stick membranes..the list goes on! Usually a single-ply membrane roof system is sufficient, but you can talk to one of our flat roof waterproofing experts, and we can help you determine how best to waterproof your flat roof.

How Flat Roof Waterproofing is Beneficial

If you have a flat roof, you have probably noticed this already, but they tend to be very sensitive to human traffic. A small crack or puncture can easily lead to a leak, which can cost you a lot of money to repair! But with our flat roof waterproofing services, your roof’s durability, ease of maintenance and energy efficiency can be significantly increased.

There are many flat roof waterproofing applications that are beneficial when it comes to:

  • Reducing cooling energy costs (up to 70%!)
  • Decreasing the chances that you’ll need for re-roofing (which can be very costly)
  • Diminishing air pollution

Don’t hesitate to call us if you have more questions about waterproofing services. If you’re looking for a roofing company in the Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia area for flat roof waterproofing services, contact the flat roof experts at Shanco today!
