Waterproofing

Waterproofing is an important aspect of any type of building and saves you unwanted costs in the long run. Damp is responsible for a large amount of damage to buildings and this is why adequate waterproofing is so essential.

Damp can rot wood frames and floors, crack foundations, rust pipes and create a breeding ground for dangerous black mold. Waterproofing keeps the layers in a building dry and safe throughout the seasons and prevents damage that would cost you a fortune to fix.

Waterproofing is done during restoration and repair projects too. Residential and heritage buildings are at higher risk for water damage due to outdated designs and climate changes.

Rooftite offers the following waterproofing:

Using high-quality waterproofing material will protect homeowners from damage and not to mention the money spent on repairs that could have been avoided. Rooftite makes sure to never compromise quality and we ensure a good and lasting relationship with every customer – big or small.
