Farmhouse roof sealed expertly

Farmhouse roof sealed

Sika’s Sealoflex Professional was specified to seal a 500m² farmhouse roof in Ceres.


After using Sika’s Sealoflex Professional in 2013 to renovate 13 farm-worker huts in Ceres, in the heart of the Cape Winelands, DS Construction was so impressed with the product’s performance that the company had no hesitation in specifying it again. In fact, DS Construction recommended it to a nearby farmer whose farmhouse roof required urgent attention.

The project required the coating of a total roof area of 500m2 with Sealoflex Professional Terracotta (60 x 5 litres).

Highly durable, Sealoflex Professional is a single-component, flexible, acrylic-based waterproofing compound containing special fibre reinforcement. It is supplied ready-to-use and provides very good adhesion to most common, sound, roofing substrates.

This thixotropic product is available in five colours, namely terracotta, white, grey, green and charcoal.

As preparation to the roof, all existing membranes and paint were removed and since no special cleaners are required prior to application of Sealoflex Professional, the roof was sprayed with a high-pressure hose. Regular inspections were done by Sika’s representative, David van der Ross, for the duration of the project.

Suitable for flat roofs, tiled roofs, parapet walls and flashing, Sealoflex Professional can also be applied as an overcoat on existing roof waterproofing systems. In most cases, its fibre reinforcement eliminates the need for a separate reinforcing membrane layer.
