Any building needs an external protection just like a "skin" to avoid its deterioration through the effects of natural elements and weathering. As part of the building envelope, roofs have a decisive role in the durability of the structure as, being the top surface of the building, prevent water penetration through horizontal or slightly inclined surfaces. All these factors make roofs as one of the most critical parts in a structure.

This is the reason why roof leakages are often the most visible and commonly claimed for damage in a building as inadequate roofing affects the functionality of the entire structure.

Roof protects not only the building itself but also the goods and the equipment installed below. This is why a good performance of the roof not only improves the durability of the building but also secures the investment in materials and production assets in industrial buildings.

A durable roof waterproofing system which resists the temperature changes and environmental aggressions such as pollution and acid rain is therefore a vital part of the building envelope.

MasterSeal® Roof systems form a fully bonded, seamless waterproofing membrane that avoids welds and seams that are typically the weaker spots in any waterproofing system. MasterSeal Roof systems can be installed on most substrates, including old concrete, built-up felt asphalt and timber substrates.

MasterSeal® Roof systems allow for simple applications on roofs with build-ups, penetrations and complicated structures. Also leaking roofs can be repaired in many cases without removing the old waterproofing layer. This offers clear time and cost savings and reduces the costs for disposal of old membranes.
