What is RC Roof?
Although RC roofing is not a new concept in the construction industry, most people are not quite conversant with it. RC roofs have been around but, they only became popular in the past decade. Even today, RC roofs are only common in the UK, US and Canada. Since a handful RC roofs can now be spotted in a few homes and commercial premises across Singapore, it will not take long before the trend heats up. Thus, it is just in order that you should know a few things about RC roofs.
RC roofs are usually made from various kinds of materials including, concrete. These roofs are usually stronger and, can withstand damage from a wide range of harsh weather and environmental elements like, overheating by sun rays, rain, snow and ice. RC roofs have better insulation properties, ensuring that the house remains warmer even in rainy seasons. During day time, an RC roof can also effectively regulate the temperatures, protecting the house from the impacts of intense heat.
One unique thing about RC roofs is their versatility. The roofing can be done on new as well as existing buildings. Whether your building has a flat roof, slating or lead works, it can be easily re-roofed with an RC roof. However, it should be noted that the construction of RC roofs is usually more costly than most common types of roofing. Besides, both RC roof construction, replacement and repair requires an expert with an experience in RC roofing.
How Most forms of RC Roof, Gutter and Slab Damage Occur
Unlike RC roofs, gutters and slabs are a common spectacle in almost every home and business premises. There are various elements that can cause damage to the RC roof, gutter or slab of a building. One of the ways damage can occur on these parts is if the construction was not done to standard. Buildings with RC roofs, gutters and slabs that are poorly constructed are usually vulnerable to frequent problems, resulting into quick deterioration and ageing.
Besides poor construction, RC roofs, gutters and slabs can also experience leaks due to lack of maintenance. Gutters should always be unclogged after heavy rain to avoid accumulation of moisture, which could impact rust and leaks. Slabs can also wear out over time, leading to cracks and chipping. Besides, placing very heavy and sharp objects on the slab can also create cracks. Water intrusion into the slab or RC roof sis also another key cause of damage that can easily wreck the foundation, walls and other structural components.
