Flat Roof Coatings and Leak Repair Problem/Solution

Problem: How to Repair Roof Leaks From Ponding Water, Weather Damage, or Short-Lived Repair Materials

Factors contributing to a leaking roof include:

  • Improper installation
  • Ponding water
  • Storm damage
  • Roof penetrations

Even small roof leaks can pose a health and safety risk. Moreover, leaks can damage electrical and mechanical systems within a building.

Identifying the source of a roof leak and finding a long-term solution can be difficult. A complex industrial flat roof with skylights and multiple protrusions can be challenging to fix. Typical sealants and tapes used to patch such roofs deteriorate within a few years, becoming brittle and cracked. Consequently, leaks reappear, and the patch process is repeated, costing money and time for the owner.

The daily expansion and contraction of dissimilar materials can also cause roof leaks. Metal flashings or brick parapets expand and contract at different rates than the roof substrate, eventually forming cracks where water can enter. This illustrates the importance of high-bonding repair sealants.

For flat industrial roofs, joints between sheets of rubber or bituminous roofing materials can fail. As time passes, constant freeze/thaw cycles, wind, and UV radiation can deteriorate the joints, causing gaps where water can enter. Damaged roofs can be repaired if discovered early, but severely neglected roofs may need to be replaced.

Solution: Belzona Polymeric Flat Roof Coatings and Roof Leak Repairs Provide Long-Term Waterproofing

We use Belzona polymeric flat roof coatings and sealant materials for effective and long-term industrial flat roof leak repairs. Our flat roof coatings and leak repairs have a typical service life of 20 years or more, making them an excellent alternative to traditional roof repair methods that last only a short time.

The Belzona 3111 Flexible Membrane:

  • Provides a seamless, elastomeric waterproof, and weatherproof barrier
  • Is highly resistant to UV light
  • Remains flexible for a long time
  • Moves with roof expansion and contraction, preventing splits and tears
  • Allows trapped moisture to escape while sealing out external weather
  • Ensures trouble-free roof sealing for a long time

Belzona liquid coatings conform to complex roof shapes and quickly seal protrusions such as pipes and vents. Belzona roof coatings also adhere tenaciously to most substrates, including concrete, brick, copper, lead, cast iron, galvanized steel, asphalt, and stone. The bonding capability between dissimilar metals prevents future leaks and enhances durability.

In addition to being easy to apply and maintain, Belzona coatings are also safe. The coatings do not require hot work, are solvent-free, and do not emit harmful VOCs or odors during application.

Moreover, fast-curing Belzona 3121 (MR7) is suitable for emergency roof leak repairs even during rainy weather and temperatures as low as 32°F.
