Liquid Applied Waterproofing

Why traditional flat roofing solutions fail

Traditional flat roofing applications are susceptible to failure due to a number of reasons. These issues are preventable when using our liquid applied solutions.

Issues with traditional solutions include: blisters, ponding water, inadequate drainage, underflow of water, plasticizer migration, environmental (UV) and chemical degradation, lack of general maintenance.
