How Roof Coating Contractors in Tampa Protect Your Property

Successful waterproofing is dependent on a number of factors. For the inexperienced, the process of applying a waterproof coating to a flat roof can be daunting. Fortunately, our team is acutely aware of the pitfalls of roof waterproofing in Tampa and have been trained to identify and resolve issues that could jeopardize the health of your roof. Different coatings should be applied for maintenance applications and permanent applications. Ensuring that the substrate is dry and at the proper temperature to be applied requires experience. Similarly, a roofing contractor must ensure that each layer of coating has had sufficient time to dry; otherwise, the roof will hardly be waterproof.

Common Flat Roof Issues That Result in Leaks

Are you dealing with pesky leaks in your commercial or multifamily property? There are many reasons why this could be happening. At Aderhold Roofing, we find that the most common culprits for roof leaks typically include one or more the following deficiencies:

  • Alligatoring: Occurs when the waterproofing membrane has begun to crack from lack of moisture and exposure to sunlight.
  • Base Flashing Lap/Split: Describes two common deficiencies found in base flashing that can have a negative effect on watertightness.
  • Blisters: When air or moisture gets trapped between the layers of the waterproofing system, it can cause the surface to bubble and blister. If these blisters “pop,” it can lead to leaks.
  • Clogged Drain: The drain from the roof has become clogged, resulting in standing water that can seep into the roof.
  • Cold Weld: Caused by poor quality workmanship when welding the roofing membrane. Essentially, it refers to an incomplete weld job.
