Flood Testing of Roofing Systems
Our flat roof leak testing procedure provides the building owner and building designers with a method for testing the watertightness of waterprooﬁng installations applied to horizontal surfaces (roofing systems). Flood testing is used for checking waterprooﬁng installations on flat roof installations over habitable spaces.
Applicable waterprooﬁng membrane installations that are regularly tested are fully adhered or bonded sheet membranes, liquid or ﬂuid applied membranes, or loose laid sheet membranes. Flood testing is completed if no leaks are determined to have occurred during the test period and the membrane and ﬂashings are intact (e.g. not blistered).
The testing should be performed only after waterprooﬁng membrane and ﬂashings are inspected and any deﬁciencies repaired.
Benefits of Flat Roof Leak Testing
Regular flood testing ensures that your roof is structurally sound and free from potential leaks for years to come.
