The fluid nature of the coating allows it to form a seamless waterproofing membrane with no cracks, gaps or voids.

Why Liquid-applied Membranes?

There are multiple solutions in the market for waterproofing roofs, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. The choice of the material 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. lt is also a no-slip application that works well for floors that are overexposed to water. lt works by combining the properties of adhesives and coatings to create an instant setting waterproofing membrane. Possessing the performance characteristics of modified bitumen, it offers a longer service life with less maintenance. Liquid rubber membranes are also more economical than almost all roofing and waterproofing/weatherproofing solutions available in the market.

Reasons to Choose Liquid-Applied Roofing

There are several advantages to choosing liquid-applied membranes as a roofing solution. Some of the main reasons include:

  • Versatile: Liquid-applied membranes offer great waterproofing as they can be applied over different roof structures and substrates to protect against leaks. The membrane offers incredible adhesion, temperature resistance and rapid curing in no time.
  • Safety: Another significant advantage of using this membrane is that it does not require heat, kettles, torches or open flames for installation.
  • Ease of application: Liquid membranes offer a flexible, easy application directly on your existing roof surface and different roofing materials.
  • Reasonable pricing: Rather than a full roof replacement, liquid roofing offers a cost-effective way to waterproof your roof, repair existing damage and extend its life.

Liquid-applied Roofing for Repairs

Liquid-applied roofing is ideal for repairs because liquid membranes cure quickly and are effective immediately. When you have a small area that requires repairs, our roofers can determine whether it will benefit from applying a liquid membrane. We apply the membrane over leaks, cracks and other roofing issues. Since the membrane dries and solidifies quickly, it is a reliable solution for roofing emergencies. lt can be great to use in areas that are hard to access and are uneven.

Liquid membranes are also an excellent choice when you want to refurbish your roof. With these membranes, you don't have to tear down your old and aged roof. We can apply a membrane layer over your existing roof structure and extend its lifespan.

Balcony Leak Repairs with Liquid-applied Roofing

Most contractors use concrete to construct balconies and waterproof them with asphalt. However, asphalt and concrete can wear down over time due to the lack of any protection and result in leaks.

Liquid-applied roofing is a great solution to repair balcony leaks because of its easy application and flexibility for different surfaces. The membrane can be applied directly over the existing surface, and once solidified, uses a moisture-triggered curing system to waterproof your balcony.
