PONDING WATER CAN BE EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE TO FIX
If your roof is sagging or isn’t sloped properly, ponding water will often be the result. This usually perpetuates the problem of sagging, which leads to more ponding water, which leads to more sagging. Before long, you have to repair or replace your roof. There are several options for mitigating ponding water on your roof, but most of the routes building owners choose are nothing more than a temporary solution.
Affordable Ponding Water Mitigation
If you have ponding water, leaks are often soon to follow unless you eliminate the problem. The best way to eliminate the problem is to remodel the roof to remove the sagging or improve the slope. This can be extremely expensive and many building owners can’t afford to just go out and completely re-work their roof. If this is the case with you, a silicone roof coating may be just the solution you need.
Resist Ponding Water for Less Money
Silicone roof coatings can resist ponding water better than almost any other roofing system. Silicone coatings are moisture curing and they become impervious to water once cured. This means that once they harden on your roof (usually within 24 hours), the system can resist ponding water without leaking, without chalking off, and without losing their adhesion to the roof.
On top of these significant benefits in the face of ponding water, silicone roof coatings are significantly less expensive than most other solutions to roofing products. This means that if ponding water is a problem on your roof, you don’t have to invest a ton of money to repair it, but can instead spend less money on a solution that will last 15-20 years in the fight against ponding water.
The problem of ponding water is pervasive among almost all flat roofs today because it is so difficult to get the slope right. If you’re fighting ponding water, the best solution is to fix the roof and restore proper slope, but that isn’t always a realistic option with price restrictions. A silicone roof coating membrane may be the alternative you need.
