Best Way To Patch A Roof That Leaking

If my flat roof is leaking what should I do?

The main problems with leaking roofs are that it is very difficult to find where the actual leak is in the roof. The very nature of a leak is that water may leak in at a certain area and then it may travel for a few meters and then the leak may appear at a different point on the inside. We then automatically think that the actual leak is right above the visible leak. This is most probably not the case; the leak may well have started at an entire different location. Polyurea and polyaspartics are the best products to use to fix a leaking roof. The products are manufactured by our parent company and are blended to the finest quality. Traditionally tar based product were widely used to seal a leak. This is not a long-term solution and may not be successful at all. Unfortunately the traditional tar based products do not adhere to surfaces very well. They will crack and peel with sunlight and is not UV stable.

Polyurea will not crack or peel, it will adhere to wood, concrete, steel, fiberglass and many other different substrates. It is UV stable, it will not crack, peel or warp. product are constantly being worked on with our in house team of chemists in our purpose built labs.

Any seam in the roofing material is a natural spot for a leak. Look closely at all seams. Do you see cracks or holes of any type? Is there a place where you can lift a small edge of a seam? Also a common point of leakage in these roofs are where the concrete has cracked, particularly if the crack is in an area of roof ponding or near a roof drain where the most water accumulated during wet weather. If an area has poured concrete, typically reinforced with steel mesh or steel re-bar, has a gentle slope to a roof drain. Imperfections in roof construction or less often due to sagging or structural movement can cause low areas that pond. can also provide your will many crack repair products and waterproofing solutions to help and assist in the preparation of roofs for an elastomeric roof coating.

Areas of roof ponding show up as dark areas where dust and debris accumulate in the areas that stay wet longer on the roof surface. Ponding that has evaporated within 24 hours of a rainstorm is not considered an actionable roof defect. If you do a thorough job of preparing the concrete roof surface for coating with an impermeable sealant such as polyaspartic or polyurea you should find and remove all of the old, poorly-adhered roof coating to expose clean dry (let it dry if needed) concrete surface.

Tips & tricks of the trade when preparing & scraping a previously-coated concrete roof surface. Remove all loose debris. Scrape and remove existing roof coating that is not soundly adhered to the roof surface. are very rigid about the roof preparation prior to coating, but we as a company figure it’s better to sweat just once than to have to do the job all over again next year because I did a poor surface preparation job the first time.

The best way to ensure that your roof is completely watertight and sealed, is to ensure all preparation is done to the highest possible standards and the customer may consider completely coating the entire roof area. This will ensure a complete sealed watertight roof. Consideration may also have to be given to the fact that a roof may contain a lot of moisture if it had been leaking over a period of time. If you coat over this rook and this moisture may need an area to escape, this can only be done by venting the roof. We commonly see vents on roofs all around the world and this can be one of the reasons for this. All roofs need to breath and air needs to get in and out. When the sun shines on a roof and the temperature rises this will cause the water ingress or moisture to expand into gas and this gas needs to escape and this is why we use vent.



Keeping Your Home Waterproof

For something so precious to life, water can do unbelievable damage. We have all seen tv footage showing the devastation floods wreak – houses flooded, cars floating, animals stranded.
That’s all extreme weather devastation – but it doesn’t take extreme weather to cause extreme damage: a simple leak can lead to a problem that can cause untold headaches. offers a solution to the nightmare of leaks; a way of dealing with damp; a means of keeping your home waterproof.
If you have difficulty in making your building waterproof, of worry that you may have to deal with damp or fix a leak, it’s worth chatting with a member of the technical staff at, who will explain the range of polyurethane, polyureas and silicons, as well as the “hybrid” mixes that suit certain specific needs.
The firm, based in Ireland for over a decade now, uses a sophisticated spray-on lining solution which has many applications. It can provide a watertight seal to flat roofs or balconies; it can coat walls and floors in areas such as sports clubs or swimming pools – anywhere where there is a lot of “wet traffic”.
Of vital importance is the fact that the finish is non-slip.
For truck beds, it provides a protective coating that is good to look at and easy to clean. In the US, it’s become the norm to have new truck beds treated with a spray-on liner, which keeps the truck leak-free, and free from rust. It also provides a bit of resistance, helping to stop items rocking and rolling around the truck bed – and, of course, it cuts down on noise.
Outdoor equipment, such as furniture, play devices, and even some elements of machinery, can also have its life prolonged through the application of an appropriate coating.
The linings and coatings that supply those with waterproofing requirements are durable, long-lasting, maintenance-free, reliable and scientifically backed.
Developed and modified as relevant discoveries and developments are made in the polymers and elastomers field, these spray-on coats are guaranteed to give you peace of mind.
Skilled operators use state of the art equipment to protect your property. Just one application is all that is required, and that’s the job done for decades.  Because of the nature of the product, the operators focus on getting it sprayed quickly – and because it’s a spray, they can turn their applicator hoses in all directions and get into crevices and cracks and gaps, ensuring you can have complete confidence and total peace of mind.
As the products are sprayed, there are no seams or joins to worry about. That means there are no weak points that might be susceptible to leaks or that might, over time, become jagged or fray.
That simply doesn’t happen with coatings.
The extensive range of products supplied by provide a secure solution, a sound way of protecting what’s precious to you, a certified way of safeguarding expensive equipment and keeping machinery free from rust.
With a team you can trust, and experience in a wide variety of situations and settings, offers ultimate solutions for your needs, especially if those needs involve protection from the elements and from water in particular.

A Sealant That Will Stand The Test Of Time

The best way of saving money is by not spending it – or at least keeping spending to a minimum – and a really good way of keeping spending to a minimum is by taking care of what you have.
Prolonging the life of equipment is a sound investment.
It’s also a good strategy when it comes to your machinery and motors – which is where comes into the picture.
Suppliers of a premium spray-on range of protective polyurea and polyurethane coatings and sealants, is leader in its field.
Its catalogue of offerings comprises a host of solutions for safeguarding equipment, machinery and buildings against damp and fungal growths or moulds, and, of course, in the case of metal elements, protection against rust.
Developed in the US and refined over several decades as the science developed and as the application mechanism was fine-tuned, the products available from have been tried and tested in the toughest of conditions – and triumphed.
That’s why the Utimate team can stand over their product – 100 per cent.
Their commitment and vision is matched by that of their technicians, trained in the effective and efficient application of these spray-on coatings in an exact and timely fashion.
What that means is minimal downtime: the application time is fast; the drying time is fast. Many jobs – even where the target area is large – will be completed in just a matter of hours.
The method of application sees a rapid-fire spray of vaporised product onto the surface to be sealed.
The product bonds to the planes of the object, adhering evenly to even the oddest of angles and edges, sealing all nooks and crannies and providing a bonded, seam-free, join-free finish, impervious to water.
With the assurance and comfort of knowing that the product is waterproof, curiosity all leads to the question of what exactly the product is.
The answer is that the product is what you need: more precisely, the product applied depends on the purpose of the structure or item; it depends on the demands that will be placed on it; it depends on the degree of rigidity versus “give” that is required; the thickness; the condition of the surface. It also depends on the atmospheric conditions prevailing in the location targeted for treatment. There’s also the question of whether the area to be protected is inside or outside.
In some circumstances, a polyurethane substance will be the appropriate choice. It’s the substance with the longest “heritage” and polyurethane-based applications are a solid, reliable and durable response.  Where a smooth surface is required, this is a likely choice.
The newer choice is polyurea, which offers the same sort of secure, reliable waterproof coverage, but which cures faster. It provides a top-grade barrier against corrosion and erosion, and is impressively abarasion-resistant.
However, a  particular feature associated with polyurea based finishes is their extremely rapid curing time, meaning that the technician applying the substance must really know what they are doing, and there are jobs for which the speed of curing makes polyureas unsuited.
The crew at factor in all aspects of a job before determining which type of system to use. There is much to be considered from a technical viewpoint, before assessing which of the elastomers is suitable given the conditions and demands.
Time spent choosing wisely brings a long term payback in terms of the security and protection provided, and through the savings in maintenance and upkeep.

The Tiniest Gap In An Exposed External Surface

There are few certainties in life – but everyone can name “the big two” – death and taxes.
However another certainty is if there’s even the tiniest gap in an exposed external surface, water will find it.
And the corollary to that particular law is that if you have a flat roof, over time, you will find yourself having to deal with leaks.
Sure, a leaking flat roof can be fixed – but a leak in a flat roof is often only the start of the general disintegration of the waterproof surface.
That’s because traditionally, the finish applied to flat roofs in this country was a pitch mixture, and gradually, water, hail and ice take their toll on it leading to cracks, tears, jags, and eventually strips will flap and then peel away completely.
The real cost may ultimately not be that of repairing the roof – but of replacing or repairing items stored below that may have been affected by the damp.
Happily, a new product provides a hassle-free solution that waterproofs and weatherproofs flat roofs – a polyurea aspartic substance that is supplied by, the Irish offshoot of a US firm.
Imported directly from the parent company which developed it, tested it, refined, improved and retested it, this polyaspartic roofing solution from is applied over just a matter of hours.
When the job is being undertaken, there’s no need to move out; there’s no upheaval and the drying time is so fast that you’ll be left wondering why you delayed so long.
The result is a smooth finish that can be supplied in a choice of colours – either to match your existing exterior colour scheme, or if you wish, you may prefer to opt for a zing with a vibrant shade from the extensive colour palette.
The application method used means complete coverage, and any nicks or holes in the existing surface will be filled smoothly by the polyaspartic formulation.
The bond is firm, and the adhesion means that whatever leaks there were will be closed over and sealed under a durable liner that is impervious to water and completely resistant to the vagaries of the weather. It won’t bubble, fray or tear. It won’t corrode, it won’t crack and it won’t warp.  The sort of problems associated with other flat roof finishes just don’t arise  when a polyaspartic  or polyurea formulation is applied as the roof covering.
This sealant product is a guaranteed way of fixing leaks in flat roofs; it is a failsafe way of waterproofing your home and providing a shield against the worst of weather. It is long-lasting and cost-effective and provides great peace of mind.
Happily, if you are opting to go for a polyaspartic or polyurea spray-finish applied to counter the existence of a leak, you don’t have to identify where the leak actually is, as this is not a spot-repair solution.
Unlike other systems, there is no trial and error process, in terms of tracing a leak, fixing it and waiting to ensure the fix has actually worked.
What the process involves is removal of all damaged roof covering before preparation of the surface in readiness for the polyaspartic covering. What the operators from the team of technicians then do is provide an entire new seal over the full area of the roof.  That’s your guarantee of a water-tight seal.
Naturally, the team take into consideration the issue of moisture and the need to allow the exit of any moisture build-up that may have occurred and thus a venting system can be used to stave off any potential problems in this area.
