! Murcia Today – The ancient rooftop terrace of a block of flats in Alicante city center is brought to life

Leak Proof, Spain’s leading waterproofing company, used the latest technology to transform the Franco-era building in Alicante

The waterproofing experts from Leak Proof were on duty again this summer to prevent water from penetrating the top floor apartment of an apartment building in downtown Alicante. The roof of the building, built in 1955, was in dire need of renovation over many years and was not renovated by many previous owners over the years.

Before Leak Proof intervened, the former owners had tried various solutions, including the typical Caucho red color, Caucho rubber with fibers and, more recently, a solution called Aqua Stop. However, none of these improvement attempts were crowned with success, as the rainwater still found its way through these materials.

Old roof terrace of a block of flats in Alicante city center is brought to lifeThe solution proposed by Leak Proof, a roof repair company based in the province of Alicante and Murcia for over 10 years, was a polyurethane system applied by their team of roofers. This advanced system can only be implemented after thoroughly cleaning the area and then applying the primer followed by two coats of polyurethane. Finally, the leak proof installation team added a top layer of resin.

All types of objects and roofs are looked after, whether old or new, whether it is work on a complete roof or only on a specific area. Flat roofs are a typical cause of concern about leaks, for example in extensions and garages, and the expertise and techniques of Leak Proof also apply to GRP roofs, winter gardens, covered passageways and even classic finca properties with brick themes.

Leak-proof, for all your roofing requirementsA 30-year guarantee is provided on fiberglass roofs (also known as GRP roofs) and membrane roofs, a system used for both buildings and tanks. The purpose of membrane roofs is to divert water from the roof and the membranes used are most often made of synthetic rubber, thermoplastic and modified bitumen.

Leak Proof guarantees that all the membranes used are UV-resistant and insulate against both hot and cold weather conditions, which makes them ideal for flat roofs and floors of solariums, roof terraces and balconies.

In addition, they use a range of special waterproof paints for all indoor and outdoor work, and offer tile and re-grouting services.
