A leak at your commercial facility, even if it is small, can be disastrous. Water damage quickly leads to mold, mildew, rot, and structural damage if not addressed immediately. Luckily, waterproofing your roof is as simple as adding a waterproof coating or paint. MaintenX specializes in roof waterproofing and offers plenty of options from which to choose:
Liquid rubber sealants offer many advantages for your commercial roofing. These roofing sealants create a waterproof membrane over the raw material that will stretch and move with the roofing over time. This protects the rubber from splitting or cracking like paint or another type of sealant. Many liquid rubbers do not require a primer and are fast-drying to protect your roofing as soon as it is applied. These are great products for flat roofing and emergency sealing services.
Waterproof acrylic paint
Acrylic paint is also a great option for waterproofing your roof on a budget. Acrylic paint comes in white and a variety of colors and though it takes a while to dry, many believe it offers a better aesthetic outcome than rubber roof sealants. Check with your roofing contractor to ensure the paint you choose is of high quality and won’t require multiple touch ups over time.
Some natural roofing materials will take stains instead of paint or liquid rubber to waterproof them. You can use wood stains on your roof to protect its surface and prevent leaks. Stains are also versatile, as you can use them for outdoor benches, pergolas, or other wood elements at your facility.
Ask your roofing specialist what they recommend for your specific roofing material and design. Some of the top recommended manufacturers for commercial roofing include:
- Liquid Rubber
- Kool Seal
