How to waterproofing a low pitch tile roof – Valhalla

Introduction

Tile roofs need to be taken care of and maintenance on them are an ongoing task, whether they are hi-pitch or low pitch roofs. The sun heats up the roof and that not only contribute to the deterioration thereof but after a while leave openings for water to penetrate.  Where there is damp, mould will form and that leads to medical issues.

Description
This low pitch tile roof repair needs some patch up. With rain, water started to seep into the roof

Problem/situation
Waterproofing must be patched up and replaced at some places. The frequently maintained property was dew for a makeover. A coat of fresh paint will seal it off and it will be good for another 5 years.

Possible outcome
It is best to keep to a well-organised maintenance plan. It will ensure that one does not run into any problems, no surprises to catch you off guard.

Suggestion
Although it is highly recommended to stick to the maintenance schedule here we have to renew all waterproofing membranes and paint all surfaces.

Work was done
The roof needs to be cleaned with a high-pressure hose before any work can commence. Defects not previously seen will be exposed now. All dust and debris will be removed from the surface. Remove any cracked or loose membrane and the surfaces can then be waterproofed again. Waterproofing of valleys, flashing and plumbers vents must be done thoroughly. A fresh layer of quality UV resistant paint will protect the waterproofing and the rest of the roof alike.
