We Offer An Innovative Technique for Protecting Your Investment
Although modern waterproofing systems are robust and when installed correctly, will rarely give any cause for concern, building owners still require that extra security and peace of mind regarding the integrity of the waterproofing element of the building.
The wide and varied uses of today’s flat roof construction can lead to damage of the waterproofing. Even the best roofing systems can sustain damage from construction, maintenance or pedestrian traffic through its lifetime. Undetected, the smallest puncture, membrane split, or mechanical breach can be devastating, causing severe and costly structural decay, interior damage, wet insulation with loss of thermal performance and mould.
Icopal Roof Protect™ provides a sustainable non-destructive asset management tool which enables pinpoint accurate, quality control leak detection of the roof waterproofing system.
Once installed the system is integrated for the life of the roof and can be used as part of a pro-active maintenance program to regularly and easily test the integrity of the roof.
