Liquid membrane roofing is a type of roof coating that is applied as a liquid. It forms a protective layer over the roof, helping to protect it from the elements. The liquid membrane can be made from various materials such as asphalt, elastomeric coatings, and polyurethane.
Benefits of Liquid Membrane Roofing
Liquid membrane roofing offers many advantages compared to traditional asphalt shingle or metal roofs. It can be applied quickly and easily with minimal disruption to your home or business. It also provides superior protection against water damage, UV radiation, and extreme temperatures. Additionally, it’s highly resistant to mould and mildew growth which helps reduce the risk of health issues related to airborne mould spores.
Installation Process for Liquid Membrane Roofs
The installation process for liquid membranes begins with cleaning the surface of the existing roof before applying the coating material. The liquid membrane is then sprayed on in thin layers until a uniform coating has been achieved across the entire area. Once dry, additional coats may be added for increased protection if desired by the homeowner or business owner. Finally, any seams are sealed with additional layers of sealant material for complete waterproof protection against water damage and other environmental factors such as wind-driven rain or snow accumulation during winter months.
