Benefits of Waterproof Roof Insulation for Commercial Buildings

As the United Kingdom is subject to wet weather conditions throughout the year, it can be important to make sure that your commercial properties have sufficient waterproof insulation installed.

Your roof is constantly exposed to the potential of harsh weather conditions, therefore, without proper treatment, you can expect significant damages and complications to your commercial building.

Luckily, various types of waterproof insulation can treat properties and ensure they survive wet conditions that roofs in England are commonly exposed to. Additionally, this type of insulation also comes with other benefits such as thermal performance, mould prevention, soundproofing and more.

What happens if your Roof gets Wet?

If your building’s roof is constantly subject to rainy conditions then over enough time you can expect to see leaks, damage, mould growth and a build-up of moisture.

Moisture can make its way into your building through leaks in your roof or via pipes. When pipes run through your roof area they can also leak and/or sweat, releasing moisture, and causing issues in your property.

What if I already have insulation?

If you already have commercial roof insulation, but it isn’t waterproof, then this insulation can get wet and cause a whole range of additional problems. For example, wet insulation can lead to mould growth which will then grow further across your internal areas, causing spots of mould in multiple locations.

The cost of wet insulation implications can be quite expensive depending on the extent of the damage, so it is always best to invest in preventative measures.
