The Development of Waterproofing Practices
The evolution of the sloping roof towards the flat roof through the last couple of centuries was necessitated by the elements of the 'form follows function tenet in architecture. For one,this provided architectural latitude in terms of design and a more optimized utilization of urban space that was becoming increasingly expensive. It was greatly augmented be the rapid expansion in the availability of 'water proofing' material such as pitch and bitumen, with the activities that coul'd be loosely associated with the development of mining techniques during the Industrial Revolution. Both the above materials were widely used for water proofing in spite of great differences in their origin and their composition .The sloping roof comprised of a large number of disjointed water proof elements (such as tiles or slate) and depends on gravity to ensure that the water flowed down from the one element to the next.The flat roof,initially, had several areas weakness in terms of per meability,such as the joints between the stones and the crack developed in the hardened material such as lime or clay.These weak areas were sea led with pitch and bitumen mixed with stops one powders. Gradually, a whole layer of waterproofing came to be provided as a preventive measure, rather than a maintenance procedure.
In time, however, the water proofing was reinforced with fabrics of hemp and cotton fibers to give it adequate mechanical properties. Later gave way to factory made rolls of water proofing materials, which could be easily be transported and affixed at site. Organic and natural fibers used as reinforcement slowly where replaced by non-biodegradable materials such as fiberglass and in the 70s with polyestermats. Similarly, the environmental hazards associated with coal tar and its products paved the way for wide spreads use of bitumen on field of waterproofing. Many different polymers were later added to the bitumen to alter its mechanical properties such as brittleness over time, resistance to heat and cold, etc.
