Flat Roof Sealing.

A flat roof or deck is composed of several elements: the support, the roof slope, the vapor barrier, the insulation, the seal, the apertures and protection or roof covering.

Why sealing a flat roof is so important?

Rain water must not get inside the house, so a sealing coat must be applied to ensure the roof is watertight.

Without this sealing:

  • water may enter the house
  • the roof support may be damaged by water
  • mold, damp walls or wet patches may appear inside the home
  • mushrooms, stale indoor air, stains on the walls and ceilings or peeling wallpaper may appear

Types of sealing

There are several types:

  • asphalt
  • bitumen products
  • roofing membrane: glued on top of each other, consisting of several reinforced bitumen sheets
