Flat Roof Leak Repair

If you have a leaking flat roof, before we carry out the flat roof leak repair we would conduct a thermal imaging survey. Once completed we would have a thermal imaging report which will show the area of the roof where the leak has occurred. Once we have identified this area we will strip back the affected area. The way in which this is done will be dependent upon the flat roofing system in place. With a mastic asphalt roof the hot poultice method would be used. With liquid or GRP sandpaper would be used.

Once this is done a base coat of liquid waterproofing is applied.

Next, we would cover the area where the roof id being penetrated with a reinforced fleece or matting. And finally, we would cover the area with a liquid waterproofing product.

Liquid Roof Repair

In the case of a liquid roof repair being required after using a thermal imaging survey to pinpoint the leaks location, we would mark out the area with tape. Next, we would use sandpaper to remove the liquid coating in the affected area. Once this area has been stripped back we remove the tape and apply a base coat of liquid waterproofing. Any cracks or splits in the surface which is allowing the water to seep through is covered with a reinforced fleece or matting. Once this is done the area is covered with the liquid waterproofing product to complete the repair.
