Originally manufactured to be used in difficult access areas, liquid systems were proved to be so reliable that most manufactures devised systems to compete with proven materials and now hold a healthy share of the market with a no flame, no plant product.
Liquid roofing involves the application of a monolithic, fully bonded, liquid based coating to a roof. The coating cures to form a rubber-like elastomeric waterproof membrane, capable of stretching and returning to its original shape without damage.
The process of liquid roofing provides a cost effective method of making a new or existing roof waterproof. It can deliver up to 25 years performance depending on the coating system employed. It is estimated that liquid roofing is 70% less expensive than overall roof replacement in refurbishment situations. Liquid roofing can be undertaken with high performance materials. Many of the products used in the liquid roofing process have been independently tested and their performance verified. In the United Kingdom, the leading testing and approvals house the British Board of Agreement (BBA) has been issuing approvals for liquid roofing systems since 1975.
Unlike the installation processes of felt, asphalt and bitumen membranes, liquid roofing does not involve hot works. Hot work on roofs is an extremely high-risk process, that poses a significant fire risk to contractors as well as the building and its occupants. The coating material used in the liquid roofing process is applied cold, thus negating any fire risk.
