About Us

Turbomax have been doing general maintenance and Renovations for the past 21 years and in 2005 we realized that there is a shortage in the market for professional water proofers.  We then changed our course and started to focus on Waterproofing.  We seek to be the best in our field and therefore we are constantly looking at new Waterproofing technology and products to give our customers the best possible service.  It is very important to us to render a reliable aftercare service.

There are fantastic waterproofing products on the market but means nothing if not used on the right surface and adequate preparation is not done.  One of the most important aspects of waterproofing is identifying the problem.  We go above and beyond to first identify the problem areas and then to treat it with the suitable material.

Waterproofing and Roof Repair FAQ’s

How often should you check your waterproofing?

Preventative maintenance should be carried out at least once a year. This includes cleaning out gutters to make sure water is effectively directed away from your home, and checking for any vegetation growing too close, causing damage with their roots or by blowing against your roof.

How often should you inspect your roof?

The standard rule of thumb in the roofing industry is that you should have your commercial-grade roof inspected twice each year. It is best to have it examined in spring and fall, before entering each extreme season.

What do roof inspectors look for?

While an interior roof inspection includes checking the attic for proper insulation, ventilation, as well as moisture and mould, an exterior inspection includes climbing up on the roof and checking for leaks and proper flashing, as well as the condition of your shingles and chimney.

How often should Roof Be Replaced?

Knowing when a roof was installed (and what it’s made of) offers insight into how much life it has left. For instance, a typical asphalt shingle roof lasts 20 to 25 years, while a roof installed over an existing layer of shingles should be replaced after 20 years.

Do flat roofs always leak?

Knowing when a roof was installed (and what it’s made of) offers insight into how much life it has left. For instance, a typical asphalt shingle roof lasts 20 to 25 years, while a roof installed over an existing layer of shingles should be replaced after 20 years.The main reason that flat roofs are more likely to leak is that they are less able to shed water. All roofs are sloped at least a few degrees to avoid the allowance of sitting puddles of water. This is why they are also known as low slope roofs.

How to prevent damp and mould?
  • Keep on top of outdoor home maintenance.
  • Keep the home warm.
  • Ensure the home is well-ventilated.
  • Avoid producing lots of moisture.
  • Remove excess moisture.
  • Choose moisture-resistant décor finishes.
  • Leave room to breathe
What is the difference between rubber liquid and torch on?

Liquid Rubber is quite literally a liquid rubber that can be applied to most surfaces to form a waterproof layer. It can stretch and shrink up to 75%. It is applied with a brush and dries naturally within 2 hours.

Torch-on waterproofing is a highly effective and durable technique to protect your roof against water and damp.

In essence, a waterproofing membrane is applied to flat, smooth surfaces. This membrane is made out of extremely sticky and viscous organic liquids, with bitumen as the key ingredient. The surface must be sound, primed and completely clean before application.

The membrane is then applied by being “torched on” or heat-fused to the underlying surface. This creates a powerful watertight seal.

This technique is often used on flat roofs to prevent water leaks, but it can be used for a variety of applications in both residential and commercial buildings, such as roof slabs, balconies and patios and foundation or retaining walls.

Why should we consider EPDM?

EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, a synthetic rubber used in a range of applications. It has a lifetime of 50 years and guarantees up to 20 years.

Do you offer a guarantee on your waterproofing?

We offer up to 2 years on Liquid Rubber and Touch on.

How long is a quotation valid for?

14 days.

 

What is the difference between a quotation and consultation?

A Consultation is a report given on your roof. The state of it, what your waterproofing looks like and recommendations will be given. a Quotation is a price given on repairs and or maintenance.
