On many occasions, we repair roofs to waterproof them and achieve greater thermal insulation. When we detect a problem of leaks, water leaks or damage to the roof or in any comprehensive reform, we also take the opportunity to reform the roof.
Roof repair works are increasingly aimed at achieving greater energy efficiency. For this we carry out the thermal insulation of the roof. Our society is increasingly aware of the waste of energy resources and therefore we seek to increase the energy efficiency of the home.
When we make renovations in old buildings, these are usually required by problems such as leaks in the roof. These appear due to the deterioration of the waterproofing of the roof over the years. It is important that, if your building or home is old, you consider the fact of a comprehensive reform in order to avoid greater evils.
If, on the contrary, they are new buildings, the reforms that they require are usually due to damage due to the lack of existence of the perimeter expansion joint. This causes pressure on the breastplate, causing danger on many occasions.
Types of roof repair
When a person contacts us to repair their roof, it can be due to various problems. Our most common jobs include:
- Construction of slopes for the evacuation of water.
- Thermal insulation.
- Treatment of reconstruction of trusses for tile roofs.
- Total or partial reform of the roof.
The problems of leaks in roofs and roofs directly affect the habitability and comfort in your home. If you do not take the necessary measures to solve it, you can end up generating structural damage due to the constant action of water on the construction materials of the house.
To carry out a waterproofing, we have systems such as asphalt fabrics, PVC sheets or polyurethane systems. These are different processes that require a great knowledge of the material with which you are working. This is important, since in order to know which of them is the right one for your home, you must fully know the utilities and indications of each material.
To perform thermal insulation, in general, we use systems that go outside the house. In this way we manage to improve the energy efficiency of the property, isolating it from both cold and heat. The result will be that you will use air conditioning systems much less frequently, favoring energy savings.
In this process, insulation is used with porous materials, such as extruded polystyrene or mineral wool. These are lightweight materials, which hardly absorb water and which serve to protect the waterproofing, increasing its useful life. To form good insulation, the thickness of the material used should be between 30 and 100 mm. But, when it comes to very extreme climates, the thickest possible thickness should be used.
If you lack a correct thermal insulation system in your home, you should consider its installation, since you will notice a considerable increase in comfort and quality of life, as well as energy savings. As for the question of whether these jobs can cause inconvenience to other neighbors, you have to know that they will not affect the daily life of the community.
Undoubtedly, a roof repair work generates noise, but normally we have accesses that are independent of the roof. This will make the work very bearable, since our work will not interfere at any time in the neighborhood activities. They are jobs that can be done in a fast and clean way and that will make you notice the difference. Do not hesitate to contact us, you will not regret it.
