At Complete Waterproofing, we provide waterproofing solutions that are suitable for homeowners as well as commercial building developers, landlords, and property maintenance companies. We specialise in waterproofing membrane installations and repairs and roof inspections and maintenance. We also detect and repair damage to membranes on and around commercial and residential buildings with special expertise in Butynol roof repairs in Auckland.
Generally, membrane roofing is durable and can last for decades. However, a lack of maintenance and unwanted damage may shorten the life of the roof to 10 years or less. An effective repair will save you the cost of a complete roof replacement and prolong the life of your roof. These are the steps we take to repair Butynol roofs.
Step 1: Identify The Problem Area
Conduct a thorough inspection of the problem area to identify what needs to be repaired.
Step 2: Clear The Area
Clear any decorative stones or pebbles from the problem area.
Step 3: Clean The Area With Hot Soapy Water
Remove any surface first and debris by washing the area with warm, soapy water.
Step 4: Clean The Area With White Spirits
The area must be thoroughly cleaned with white spirits to ensure the sealing tape works properly.
Step 5: Measure And Cut Sealing Tape To Outline The Perimeter
Outline the affected area with sealing tape in preparation for priming.
Step 6: Prime Marked Area
After priming the marked area, we allow the primer to dry for around ten minutes.
Step 7: Apply Tape To Primed Area
In order to fully cover the damaged area, the tape used must reach 35mm past the damage all around. For instance, a tear that is 10mm by 60mm in measurement would require a patch that measures a minimum of 80mm by 120mm.
Step 8: Seam Roller
Rolling over the tape with a seam roller helps to ensure maximum adhesion and a long-lasting repair.
Step 9: Replace Stones
Rearrange the stones to cover the patched area, and the repair is complete.
