Waterproofing Your Concrete Roof TilesNovember 17, 2016


As of late, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of professional companies who offer to coat, waterproof and seal concrete roofing tiles. But it stands to good reasons why these services are offered. In fact, there are numerous benefits to waterproofing your concrete roof tiles.

The Basics

Waterproofing concrete tiles is a simple process. It entails the application of a waterproof coating to the surface of the tiles so that they are protected from rainfall and moisture. The prevention of water accumulation or leakage is important for guarding water from entering the house.

Since tiles are generally laid on sloped (pitched) roofs, the water can run off the tiles to the next tile and next until it reaches the gutter. As well, gravity pulls the water down the roof instead of through the tile and into the home.

The Biggest Advantage

Sealing your concrete tiles stops water from entering the hairline cracks which can easily freeze when temperature are cold. Once the cracks freeze, the tiles have a greater chance of cracking. And since water expands when it freezes, the roof cement could also crack.

Extend the Tiles Life

As with most things, the life of an item is expanded when it is taken care of. Moreover, most items have a shorter lifespan when constantly exposed to the elements without protection. As with roofs, they are totally exposed to the weather. But when concrete tiles are waterproofed, it stops rainwater (or snow) from weathering the surface. In fact, many specialists feel that it greatly lengthens the lifespan.

Added Strength and Durability

Waterproofing concrete tiles also adds strength and durability to its surface and the roof. And with extra strength, you have additional protection. Although the coating process is a little complex, it can be done most anytime. The most important, is to hire a professional. As well, a specialist will know the latest and most affective waterproofing material available.

Increase Value and Reduce Costs

Waterproofing your concrete tiles can instantly transform your home. In fact, a roof coating can turn an old and decomposing roof into a nice new looking one. As well, the cost of waterproofing is much cheaper than replacing your roof. As once the waterproofing is complete, the value of your home is greatly increased.

Protection from the Sun

Waterproofing your tiles not only shields them from water damage but it also protects them from harmful ultra violet rays. In fact, when concrete tiles are excessively exposed to the sun, the roofing material gets oxidized. Once oxidized, there is a chemical breakdown which can weaken the roof. But with a waterproof sealant, your tiles are protected.
