PREVENT LEAKS WITH A SEAMLESS ROOF
There are few things worse in a building owner’s day than finding out that they have leaks in their roof. It means you could have damaged inventory, slowed operations, and you’ll definitely have to make at least one repair to your roof. A leaking roof can immediately send a building owner’s day into a tailspin. Instead of waiting for the leaks to come and making repairs, we recommend installing a roof system that will eliminate current and prevent future leaks altogether, a seamless roof.
Prevent Seams from Pulling Up
A roofing system that has seams is prone to leaking at those seams, because they are the most common point of roof failure on the roof. The seams often pull up from one another or pull up from the roof surface itself, which leads to water getting underneath the roof membrane where it has access to a plethora of entries into the building. Once a seam fails, it’s only a matter of time before you have leaks coming into your building.
A seamless roof system also means that it is self-adhered to the roof surface and eliminates the need for fasteners. With no fasteners on the roof, it is much less likely that the roof will leak. Many leaks have been caused by fasteners backing out and allowing water to enter in through the hole that they left. Again, once the water is under the roof surface, it won’t be long before you have leaks in your building.
Lower Risk of Applicator Error
Most seamless roof systems, such as a silicone roof coating, are far easier to install than roofs with seams. They take a little bit of practice to build up that initial skill, but once you know what you are doing, mistakes are rarely made because the whole system is so simple. If a seamless roofing system is installed incorrectly, it will leak, guaranteed. However, even if a seamless system is installed correctly (which rarely happens), it still won’t leak in most cases because the coating or foam was still applied, it just may be slightly too thin, which can be corrected after an inspection.
A seamless roof on your building prevents leaks by eliminating seams, eliminating fasteners, and minimizing the possibility of installation error. This is obviously a great system for anyone who wants a long-term roof with little-to-no headache.
