Waterproofing Centurion

Waterproofing a flat roof - Badly neglected IBR flat roof - The Reeds
Having to work on a badly neglected roof is very challenging. Then the wooden structure could be not up to standard anymore because of fasteners that worked themselves loose.
When water entering the roof one will find an accumulation of damp witch compromise the ceiling boards and electrical wiring inside. Letting the situation go on this way one will find that mould will start growing inside the roof (all because of the moisture).
After thoroughly cleaning and removing all surface rust (luckily it was only that), the fasteners could be tackled. We were able to do that without having to replace any wooden structure. A good application of rust repellent paint followed. Each and every fastener, as well as all joints and plumbers vents, were waterproofed with the membrane. The final stage was to apply a couple of layers of UV resistant paint to finish the whole process.
The roof was saved from complete redone and came out perfect. It will definitely withstand the weather for quite some time.
After thoroughly cleaning and de-rust the roof it was apparent that it still had some life in it. Waterproofing a flat roof is a gigantic task in itself but after painting it with UV repellent paint it is good to go for a long time. The occupants can now enjoy their new residence and feel safe under a properly maintained roof
