Liquid membrane coating is another option available for buildings that require waterproofing. The method involved a spry, roller or trowel for application. A great benefit of this option is the flexibility that it offers as it is a thin coating that is sprayed onto the desired surface.

Bituminous membrane method is great for roofing waterproofing needs! This option is a popular choice for buildings with a low-sloped roof. There are two different types of membrane that come with different steps for instillation these are, self-adhesive and torch on. The first option of self-adhesive deteriorates much faster than the second option of torch on due to the bonding limitations that the self-adhesive membrane provides. Torch on is made to withstand wear and tear of weathering that roofs are naturally prone to. Torch on membrane can come with exposed membrane that has a granular aggregate surface or covered membrane.
Polyurethane Liquid Membrane
Polyurethane liquid membrane is traditionally more expensive than alternative methods, but the process is great for flat roof areas and other exposed highly vulnerable spaces. Benefits of this choice include the high level of flexibility that it offers, UV resistance, chemical and thermal resistance. If you are looking to waterproof your flat roof we highly recommend overlooking the benefits of this installation, the price attached is surely returned in the property protection and value saved.
