Waterproofing with polyurethane has many advantages, especially here in southern Florida. We live in a warm, and moist environment. Not only that, but an environment which is prone to both heavy winds and hurricanes, as well as heavy rains and hot sun. Using polyurethane for waterproofing of roofs, ceilings, floors, walls and ceilings is necessary in the prevention of weakening of a buildings structure. This not only prevents water leaks, but also eliminates the risk of condensation. This helps prevent the formation of mold, which helps to keep the integrity of the building in tact.
Water often finds its way into buildings through a seam or join in materials, or when materials begin to deteriorate such as roofing parts. Polyurethane is the perfect solution that delivers durable waterproof protection, and is easy to apply and quick to provide waterproofing qualities.
It is made up of two components, a base and a reactor. Polyol acts as the base, while isocyanide is the reactor component. When both of these are combined, it creates a liquid coating for waterproofing applications. It is the popular waterproofing choice because of its ease of installation. Unlike other waterproofing systems like sheet membranes and liquid applied products, this polyurethane application is quite easy. Application is fast and this type of treatment can be used after construction is completed as well.
See these key advantages of polyurethane:
- UV Resistant
- Weather resistant
