Many roofs nearing the end of their useful life have had their life expectancy considerably extended by the application of a quality waterproofing system, incorporating a solar reflective finish.
Porous roof sheeting, ‘tired’ felt or asphalt roofs can be easily and effectively treated with this low cost system. An additional benefit of industrial waterproofing systems is the minimal disturbance to the operations within the building.
Liquid roofing systems encapsulate whatever surface they are applied to, meaning that whatever is underneath is preserved and protected from all weathers. Using a liquid coating for asbestos roofs is also advisable, as it seals in the asbestos, making the disturbance of the material which can trigger asbestosis much less likely.
Unlike other installation processes, liquid roofing involves no hot works which can present serious fire risks. Because the coating material used is applied cold, any fire risk is avoided, meaning that it is a much safer alternative to consider.
