Waterproofing Your Commercial Flat Roof in South Florida

flat roof waterproofing

Most commercial buildings in South Florida have a flat roof, but with having a flat roof comes the problem of water damage and leaks. If you have a flat roof in Florida then you should definitely read on to see how you can benefit from commercial roof sealing.

Benefits of Roof Coating Services in South Florida

The best flat roof coating is an excellent investment in your building. Roof leaks account for a significant amount of interior repair costs for a commercial building. A roof that isn’t properly reflective can increase your utility bills and overwork your air conditioner. As a local flat roof sealer team, our team at Deluxe Waterproofing understands the local climate and the need for a sealed, reflective roof.

Our roof coating materials meet Energy Star energy efficiency guidelines for reflecting heat and keeping your energy bills low. These materials are uniquely designed to keep your HVAC costs lower, resulting in a better investment.

What Environmental Conditions Do To Your Flat Roof

The strongest known forces known to man are the elements. They have formed the continents and shaped the very topography of the earth. If the elements can do all of this then imagine what they can do to your commercial flat roof.

Heat – Being in South Florida we know a thing or two about the heat. Temperatures can reach into triple digits in the summer months and this can wreak havoc on your South Florida flat roof. Over time, exposure to extreme temperatures can cause stress to your roofing materials causing them to weaken and even crack, allowing moisture to seep into the crevices that are subsequently formed.

Rain– As much as it’s hot in South Florida it also rains. During the rainy season, environmental precipitation can cause wear and tear on your Florida flat roof. Rainfall can settle on your flat roof and over time will cause erosion of the roofing material and lead to leaks.

U.V. Radiation – The sun emits ultraviolet radiation (otherwise known as UV Rays) that is responsible for everything from various types of skin cancer to the degrading of building materials. Over time the protecting surface of your roof wears off, leaving your flat roof vulnerable to UV damage.

Wind – Florida is smack dab in the middle of a hurricane zone so your flat roof stands a chance of being damaged by the wind from tropical storms and hurricanes. Wind can cause gradual or even immediate damage to your flat roof. Fasteners can come loose and flying debris can also cause damage to your South Florida flat roof.

Flat Roof Waterproofing Extends The Life of Your Roof By 10-20 Years and So Much More… 

As an alternative to re-roofing, Deluxe Waterproofing roof coatings “Roof Coating Systems” provide a simple, solution that saves building owners and facility managers money, can be completed quickly… and can help reduce energy costs.

Flat Roof Waterproofing is A Fraction of The Cost of Re-roofing.

The labor and materials cost is a fraction of that of re-roofing, making Deluxe Waterproofing’s coatings a cost-effective alternative to roof replacement. Most roof damage occurs in a small area of the roof but requires a large section to be replaced causing a waste of otherwise good roofing material. Sealing the entire roof will present this waste.

Reduce the Cost of Cooling with Flat Roof Waterproofing

A happy side effect of the membrane that Deluxe Waterproofing uses is the reflective property. In essence, it reflects the harsh sunlight thereby protecting the surface of the roof from the damaging heat and UV Rays. The surface temperature of your roof can be reduced by up to 50% which means your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep the interior cool, saving you money.

Resistant to Damage from the Sun

Our roof coating is UV resistant and doesn’t chalk, crack or become discolored due to sun damage, which is a common problem with other flat roof coatings. This is great for large commercial buildings with flat roofs that are exposed to the harsh Florida sun.

Easy to Apply and Takes A Fraction of The Cost

Our flat roof waterproofing is done quickly with very little mess, like a messy, time-consuming traditional tear-off. As a maintenance item, restoration allows you to immediately expense your costs, as opposed to re-roofing, which, as a capital expense, must be depreciated over the anticipated 39-year working life of the roof established by the
