Does water seep into your flat roof making the exterior of your residential property look ugly and reveal damages? Are the balconies of your house overexposed to water? Are you still looking for a solution to waterproof your flat roof in Foothills? If the answer to these questions is a yes, you have landed on the right page. Flat Roofing Ltd offers you an excellent solution to roof leakage with a liquid-applied membrane.
A liquid-applied membrane roof, commonly known as LAM, is a monolithic, fully-bonded, liquid-based coating that is used for waterproofing roofs. The process involves curing the coating to form a rubber-like waterproof membrane. This waterproof membrane is then applied over the roofing material to prevent water seepage. The coating can be applied over many substrates, such as asphalt, bitumen and concrete. The fluid nature of the coating allows it to form a seamless waterproofing membrane with no cracks, gaps or voids. Flat Roofing Ltd is associated with Sika, a reputed name in the industry for fluid membranes, to provide you with superior quality roof waterproofing.

There are multiple solutions in the market for waterproofing the roof. Each one of them has its own advantages and disadvantages. The choice of the material majorly depends on your needs and budget. Like EPDM and PVC, a liquid rubber membrane is also an excellent choice for making your roof moisture resistant. It is also a no-slip application that works well for floors that are overexposed to water. It works by combining the properties of adhesives and coatings to create an instant-setting waterproofing/weatherproofing membrane.
It is nothing but an advanced version of the built-up roof (BUR) system. Possessing the performance characteristics of modified bitumen, it offers a longer service life with less maintenance. Liquid rubber membranes are also way economical to almost all roofing and waterproofing/weatherproofing solutions available in the market.
Liquid-applied membranes are used for super proofing as they have the capacity to stretch and recover under extreme temperatures. The membrane can self-heal and self-seal by forming a permanent bond with itself. These roofs offer excellent adhesion to metal, wood, plastic, and concrete and do not require a primer coat. They are made of sustainable, non-toxic, odourless, and non-flammable materials. Another major advantage of using this membrane is that it does not require heat, kettles, torches or open flames for installation and pose no health risks to the applicators. When you have a commercial air conditioner installed on your roof, it exposes your roof to weather changes. Liquid-applied membrane is the best option to seal this exposure as the liquid can go around the exposed surface and seal it effectively.
