With a cost effective and long lasting solution, an excellent track record of application instances, we sincerely believe that the Sealtaq Solution is the way of the future for gutter relining and waterproofing.
With our roofing experience, when assessing corrugated roofs and their related systems, we often find that the emphasis of the waterproofing is applied to merely to the corrugated sheets, and the gutter is somewhat applied separately and without much thought.
When closely examined, the conventional waterproofing methods, that with time, have very little cohesive success. Although there are many torch on systems that are available on the market within South Africa, very few of them contain the UV tolerance and resistance that’s required for the extremely harsh weather conditions found in South Africa. Many alternative products cannot cope with the UV conditions, and this results in the material become brittle and eventually failing.
When selecting the correct product that is ultimately chosen for a gutter application, a factor that should be taken into consideration should be it’s ability to conform to temperatures over 40 degrees Celsius in summer, and further more, freezing conditions in winter.
Also a very important factor to consider when choosing the correct material for application to a gutter, is most certainly how easily the product can be applied in hard to reach areas. Many products on the market cannot conform to different shapes, and often gutters are extremely narrow and tricky to reach into. A general rule of application, is that if the material is not coated onto the surface, seemingly obviously, it will not have any waterproofing efficacy.
