Everything You Need to Know About Liquid Roofing

If you’re looking for the ideal solution to apply to your roof, liquid roofing takes the lead. You can expect longevity when you choose liquid roofing solutions – with most solutions lasting around 25 years.

Liquid roofing can be applied across roofs, balconies, car parks and walkways to name a few. Trained contractors with minor inconveniences can easily apply this versatile solution.

The speed and ease with which liquid roofing can be applied are some of the most advantageous benefits. Metal, asbestos, concrete and felt are safe to have liquid roofing applications.

As liquid roofing is suitable to be applied over most materials, more homeowners and commercial building owners are choosing liquid solutions to fully waterproof their properties.

Due to its flexible consistency, liquid roofing can adjust to the shape of seams, joints and fixings. Liquid roofing is one of the most protective applications, which contributes to its rise in popularity. Typically, liquid roofing is made up of natural bitumen, polyester or polyurethane.

Most liquid solutions are able to withstand heavy foot traffic once cured accordingly. Although the life expectancy of liquid roofing applications varies, it typically lasts between 5 to 30 years – however, this is based on both maintenance and weather conditions. Applied on flat surfaces, liquid roofing systems are easy to clean and upkeep, which ultimately contributes to the lifespan.


The Benefits of Liquid Roofing

There are plenty of benefits that come with having a liquid waterproofing system. Liquid roofing systems essentially provide your roof with an efficient waterproof coating, which protects your roof from various weather conditions for a long period of time. This type of liquid solution is completely seamless and gives your roof a neat appearance.

When applied cold, liquid roofing reduces the insurance cost of the building and makes the application safer for contractors compared to other solutions that require heat. You can expect your liquid roof to trap heat and remain fully durable.

Liquid roof coatings are fast curing, making them resistant to frequent foot traffic once set, building movement stress and thermal fluctuation. Regardless of the shape or size of your roof, liquid roofing can be applied with quick coverage – ensuring all roof details and features are coated. You can trust liquid roofing to provide the best coverage, even if your roof is a more complex design.


Applying Liquid Roof Solutions

Cold-applied liquid roofing is one of the best waterproof membranes on the market. Typically applied with a roller brush, liquid solutions are simple to apply if done correctly by a trained professional. Liquid solutions can be applied to various surfaces, including balconies, walkways, green roofs and flat roofs.

It’s common for roofs to be subject to wear and tear over time, especially if you’ve had the same roof structure for a long time. Liquid roofing systems offer seamless coverage that can fix penetrations and cracks.

Whether you own a warm or cold roof, you can rest assured that liquid roofing will be a suitable choice. If you’re stripping out your existing roof due to a failing system, liquid roofing can provide an efficient solution.
