Is Your Roof Ready For Winter? Tips On How To Keep It Waterproofed: a blog about maintaining your roof in the UAE

The harshness of a weather season doesn’t end with summers. Shortly the winter comes and rain falls which can lead to water seepage and eventually cause serious structural damage if not checked. Tending to your building’s roof is one of the most effective ways to keep it in top-notch condition as the weather can be extremely damaging. The best way to avoid roof and building damage is to take preventative measures. We will review some of the things to do and after reading this you’ll know how to keep your roof waterproofed for winter.

Repairing Your Roof

If you live in an older building, it’s likely that there could be some leaks or damage to the roofing. This can happen due to old age or poor maintenance. If you notice any leaks, cracks in the paint or rust on the guttering system then it’s best to call in a professional for repairs immediately. This can prevent further damage from occurring due to water seeping through the cracks and potentially causing damage inside your facility.

Painting is another way of protecting your roof from damage caused by rainwater seeping through cracks in the paintwork and rusting away at the metal underneath. Painting will also prevent mould growth which can lead to dampness inside

Thermilate Contractors offer roof repair and painting services as part of our metal roof waterproofing Dubai/UAE. Painting your roof can help keep it looking new and improve its overall appearance. Painting also protects the surface against harmful UV rays which can cause deterioration over time.

Sealing the Metal Roof

This is one of the most popular roof waterproofing methods that are used by many building owners. The process involves sealing gaps, joints, cracks and overlapping areas with a butyl sealant. This type of sealant can withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions.

T103 Butyl Sealant is designed to maintain its flexibility in different conditions and can withstand extreme heat and cold temperatures without losing its elasticity or expanding too much under pressure. It’s highly resistant to UV light as well which helps protect it from sun damage over time.

Butyl sealants are also very versatile when it comes to application as they can be applied manually or with an airless spray gun depending on how large an area needs to be covered or if there are pipes or wires in the way that may need protection during application.


Waterproof Paint

This is another method of waterproofing the roof, although it is not as effective as other methods. The paint coats the surface of your roof and prevents water from seeping through. It is easy to apply and does not require much upkeep. However, it can only be applied on flat surfaces and does not provide protection from termites or other insects that can cause damage to your facility and property.

Roof Waterproofing Membrane

This type of waterproofing membrane allows water to flow off the surface of the roof but prevents water from seeping through cracks in the surface. It is designed to be installed over existing tiles and does not require any other work on your roof. It can also be used as an alternative method to replace old tiles and can be fitted directly to the roof rafters or wooden beams underneath. This type of waterproofing membrane is ideal for roofs where there are large areas of water penetration or where there are many cracks in the surface, such as on flat roofs.

Check For Rot

Rotting is a common problem with roofs because they often become damp and wet due to heavy rains or other weather conditions. Hire experts in roof maintenance in UAE who can check for rot on the roof. This may be identified by tapping on various parts of your roof with an object; if there’s any softness or cracking sound, then this means there may be a problem with that specific area of your roof.

Hire experienced waterproofing contractors

Waterproofing your roof is essential to protecting the structural integrity of your property. Roof waterproofing protects against water damage, which can occur if there are leaks in your roof. If you have water leaking into your warehouse or office, it can cause damage to your property, furniture and even electrical appliances.
