Liquid Roofing is the process of waterproofing a roof by the application of a specialist liquid roof coating.
Many types of waterproof membrane systems are available, including felt paper or tar paper with asphalt or tar to make a built-up roof, other bituminous waterproofing, ethylene propylene diene monomer EPDM rubber, hypalon, polyvinyl chloride, liquid roofing, and more.

Flat roof

It is suited to all types of roof, including flat, pitched, and domed.
This type of a roof membrane is generally referred to as Liquid Roofing and involves the application of a cold liquid roof coating.

In 1975, the first water based elastomeric roof coatings were introduced. The coating cures to form a rubber-like elastomeric waterproof membrane, capable of stretching and returning to its original shape without damage.

Polyurethane

In the late 1980s, single component moisture-cured polyurethane coatings were developed and remain the basis of the majority of today's cold liquid applied roof coating technologies.

Liquid Roofing and Waterproofing Association

The association's aim is to educate and inform specifiers, contractors, and the industry as to the properties, correct applications, installation methods, and aftercare of liquid waterproofing systems.
