When assessing a flat roof repair in Cape Town – the first thing that we look at is the type of roof finish, as different types of roofs require different types of repair materials. The quantity of material that needs to be applied, is determined by the roofs surface area.
There are a number of applications that we would consider using for your flat roof repair:
Polymer modified reinforced roofing membrane:
UniTorch 4 and UniTorch 3 are heat fused, UV stable roofing membranes which will provide complete waterproofing protection for low pitch decks. Locally manufactured to suit our unique weather conditions.
Matryx is a cementitious waterproofing system which protects and waterproofs concrete structures by crystallisation. The active chemicals react with moisture in the concrete resulting in crystalline formation within the pores and capillary tracts of concrete, thus waterproofing the structure against penetration of water and other liquids from any direction. Matryx gives a strong and lasting waterproofing protection against dampness and ground water hydrostatic pressure.
Hydroflex is a highly elastic, crack bridging, UV stable, tropical grade, waterproof and protective coating. Cementitious based with a synthetic resin additive.
Self-adhesive waterproofing membrane
DB530 is a locally manufactured, self-adhesive, cold applied waterproofing membrane. It is constructed from woven polypropelene sheeting and a bitumen polymer adhesive compound.
Primer, sealer and bonding agent
Acrylic Primer is used as a primer, sealer and bonding agent to prepare floor surfaces prior to the application of the waterproofing membrane and wall coating system.
When repairing a flat roof in Cape Town, we always check the roofs structure, including the joists, rafters, the parapet walls as well as the drainage area around the flat roof. All rotten materials will be replaced, prior to commencing the repair on your flat roof.
