For Waterproofing Problems on Your Roof, Apply Acrylic Liquid Membrane to Your Exposed Concrete Surfaces
When it rains in summer in Australia, it rains hard, and the roof is your first point of defence against waterproofing problems. It’s vital to protect your home from minor or major water damage by waterproofing all exposed concrete surfaces on your roof. First, check for any cracks or ponding of water and then look for possible access points where water can get in. If parts of your roof are ponding apply a cementitious leveller before applying waterproofing products such as Ardex K220 for cementitious levelling and a waterproofing membrane of Ardex WPM 300 followed by 3 coats of the Decorative External Waterproofing Membrane Ardex WPM 310 which will improve structural integrity and eliminate the threat of water leakage.
