Waterproofing systems for skylight domes
The durability and longevity of a waterproofing system depend, above all else, on the quality of its application.
Besides the use of inappropriate materials, the most common cause of damage is the unprofessional waterproofing of complex detailing, i.e. structural connections and roof penetrations.
The classic weak points include aerials, parapets, fittings, lightning conductors, bolts, roof edges, H-beams, outlet vents, joints, gutters, internally-mounted drainage channels, crane runways and, of course, skylight domes.
Since it is applied as a liquid, the waterproofing generates a seamless and jointless system to incorporate structural connections, roof penetrations and intricate details even in confined spaces.
