It´s true, summer and fall are better seasons for waterproofing work on roof and structures. But it is also true that you can waterproof during the winter, and you must do so if necessary.
Small leaks can cause severe problems in interior siding or door frames. Factors such as rain, snow, cold, and dampness can cause building materials to weaken and deteriorate quickly. That’s why you should take immediate action if you notice any leak, no matter the time of the year.
So, if you find yourself in need of a sound winter waterproofing system, here are some things to keep in mind:
.- It is essential to select materials that can withstand low temperatures. Products such as EDILFLEX APP 40 PLUS or EDILFLEX SBS COOL 180 are excellent options for working in cold climates. This is very important because you need the right materials for your home climate to guarantee good adhesion and the best durability for your investment.
.- Ensure the surface is clean, unobstructed, dry, and free from ice or snow.
.- It is necessary to consider the weather forecast to ensure the material has sufficient time to dry and set both during and after installation.
.- We strongly recommend that you avoid installing in temperatures below 0 degrees Celsius. This will ensure that you have a completely effective seal.
You can achieve excellent results with your winter waterproofing by taking all these precautions, choosing high-quality materials, and hiring specialized installers.
