Roofseal is something that must be selected and think about how to prevent a repeating leak.

It is a heartbreaking story when a leaking roof was repaired, and the leak comes back again. What is the reason? What do we do with roof waterproofing to stop the roof leaking story, and not to interfere with our lives? This article has the answer!

What we may not think about the cause of the roof leakage

1. The deck leaks because of cracks.

The cracks on the deck surface are caused by temperature changes from sunlight, cold, and rain. All these factors cause the concrete deck surface to stretch and shrink until cracks occur. If they are unchecked and left without roof waterproofing when it rains and time goes by, water may seep into the cracks and go deep into the structure and then rust occurs.

2. There are cracks at the corners of the floor and deck walls but they are not fixed.

The joints along the edge of the roof top corner, especially the joints between the floor and the wall are regarded as another risk point that causes the roof to leak. If they are left for a long time by doing nothing with the joints properly or no installation roof waterproofing, various cracks expand more because they are not protected. When it rains, water and moisture accumulate in the edge of the crack. This can cause mold, algae, and water to seep into the structure as well.

The deck leaks because other materials are installed on the deck and this results in cracks.

The installation of items, such as water tanks or deck additions is another reason why the deck can crack and leak. A highly resilient roof waterproofing  system reduces the risk of surface tearing and water ingress.

4. The deck leaks because the drainage is clogged.

This is the easiest cause and the easiest repair but we often neglect the problem as well. Thus, keep going up to the deck to check to make sure that no leaves and twigs pile up in the drainage to prevent flooding on the rooftop. This greatly reduces the risk of roof leaks.

5. The deck leaks because it is thought that the roof has already been waterproofed with nothing further to do.

The solution used to mix concrete when building a rooftop does not prevent water leakage as understood. Its function is to reduce water in concrete that makes the concrete firm and opaque. Therefore, the water is more difficult to enter the concrete. In this regard, if there is no installation of a  roof waterproofing  system additionally, the concrete still faces the sunlight and rain, and finally cracks occur and water seeps into the concrete.

6. The deck leaks because of the use of unsuitable products.

The selection of unsuitable products for the work is a popular topic; for example, the use of cement to cover the cracks on the rooftop or filling the cracks with acrylic sealant. As time goes by, the rooftop leaks again because the plastered cement is not flexible. When exposed to the sun and rain for a long time, it is broken as before. The use of acrylic sealant to fill cracks on the deck is considered inappropriate as the acrylic sealant is suitable for filling cracks in the house or indoor cracks, which are not subject to direct sunlight.
