The Mediterranean climate that we all enjoy makes having a roof patio a desirable addition to your home, providing access to morning or afternoon sun and the surrounding views that are not obtainable at ground level.
Roof patios need to be constructed using a robust building approach similar to that of a flat roof. The extreme heat that is absorbed by the roof patio results in the surface expanding and contracting. Standard grouting will not bear up to such harsh conditions. If prepared incorrectly, the grouting can have a tendancy to allow water to seep through which can result in the ceiling under the roof collapsing.
To guard against this, we apply a specialist sealant (as seen in the picture here) which allows the roof to expand and contract whilst retaining its waterproof state. We apply up to 4 layers in order to best protect the surface and ultimately your home beneath it.
LT Construction will provide a robust solution that will withstand the riggers of the intense summer heat while keeping out the heavy rains we experience here in Spain.
