AdobeStock_6585404.jpegRuined inventory, compromised product components, and infrastructure damage are only a few of the headaches and heartaches that come along with leaks at your business site.  While the dollar signs begin to add up when you consider replacing your inventory and repairing the damage, it can pale in comparison to the lost revenue and opportunities when you shut down to address the problem at its source. 

Depending on where the leak begins and where it finds its way into your store, service area, production line, or any other area your property, the complexity of finding a solution can vary greatly.  While there are steps that need to be taken to completely remedy the problem, losing production time, losing revenue, and investing in an expensive repair no longer has to be your only option. 

Based on the size of your roof, or the area that is allowing water infiltration, the average cost of a roofing repair from a contractor is over $600.  However based on how extensive the damage is, the cost can soar into the thousands.  While you can’t operate with water and other fluids creating damage, you also don’t need to close your doors and spend a fortune in order to repair it.  This is where Rapid Seal A comes in.

Simple and Safe Roof Leak Repair: Stay Dry During El Niño

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Mon, Feb 8, 2016 @ 11:02 AM

Simple and Safe Roof Leak Repair: Stay Dry During El Nino Listening to water drip into pots and pans from your living room can be quite frustrating.  However, watching it fall onto a production line, cause damage to offices or other elements of your business can be devastating.  According to Architect Magazine, 40% of building damage is caused by water intrusion.  So if you’ve noticed water marks on ceilings or walls, damp spots on the floor, or any other sign of water intrusion from the recent El Nino rains, it’s time to take care of these leaks before major damage occurs.

While a roof typically only makes up 2% of overall construction costs, water intrusion and roof failures account for over 70% of construction litigation.  Before your building gets to the point of total roof failure, there is a simple, safe and quick step you can take to seal any leaks. 

Rapid Seal – Emergency Roof Patch

Rapid seal is a non-polluting, non-combustible pellet formulation that seeks out, swells and patches the leak immediately.  Rapid Seal will work in wet conditions, including pouring rain; other traditional roof repair methods like asphalt patching require dry conditions.  Due to Rapid Seal’s ability to be drawn to the area of the leak and patch it, there is no need for you to identify the intrusion source.  This environmentally safe solution will not interfere with any permanent repairs that are made later. 

Rapid Seal is perfect for:

  • Any flat roof
  • Apartments
  • Schools
  • Institutions
  • Hospitals
  • Factories
  • Malls

Rapid Seal A – Aerosol Roof Patch and Leak Sealer

Rapid Seal A is a portable, easy to use, thick aerosol roof patch and repair solution that remains flexible.  Once your leak is repaired, Rapid Seal A will help to prevent additional damage by allowing your roof’s materials to continue to respond to the elements (i.e. wind, rain, etc.).  This extremely durable sealer will not sag or drip in the summer heat or crack or peel in colder weather.  Because Rapid Seal A maintains its integrity in all conditions and offers a flexible solution for water intrusion, it is perfect for:

  • ·         Down Spouts
  • ·         Gutters
  • ·         Chimneys
  • ·         Skylights
  • ·         Flashing
  • ·         Overlapped Seams
  • ·         Vent Pipes
  • ·         Drip Edges
  • ·         Asphalt Shingles
  • ·         Single Ply Systems
  • ·         Gravel Stops
  • ·         Off Ridge Vents
  • ·         Metal Buildings
  • ·         Recreational Vehicles
  • ·         Condensation Pans
  • ·         And More…


Just like Rapid Seal, Rapid Seal A can be used on wet surfaces.  The aerosol spray application allows for easy access to anywhere a leak may be.  No more carrying heavy pails up ladders to take care of small jobs.  Rapid Seal A can also repair leaks inside your home, like from a cracked or leaking sink.  By simply spraying the underside of the sink, p-trap, drain pipes and other affected areas you can save money on expensive parts or replacement.

So as El Niño continues to be a major weather influence and a wetter climate appears to be common in the forecast, the time is now to protect your buildings and infrastructure.  While traditional methods to roof and leak repair can be daunting, even expensive, the easy, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly solutions that Rapid Seal and Rapid Seal A offer can keep your property dry without sinking your bottom line.
