Liquid roofing systems involve the protection of a roof structure against all weather conditions by means of a fluid-applied material, which solidifies to form a seamless waterproof barrier. They are fast-track, versatile, reliable, and easily maintained. Liquid coatings are popular for refurbishment of roof structures.
They can be applied over the existing roof covering, avoiding the need to strip the roof. Liquid systems are particularly useful where access is restricted or where a building is too sensitive to remove the existing roof covering. Liquid Membranes have many benefits: Seamless protection Contain UV protectors and are therefore highly resistant to sunlight Can be applied over existing roof structure – therefore no need for stripping the roof Reduced risk of surface blistering, as the liquid membranes are vapour permeable.
Anti-slip and colour-defined walkways/areas can be easily produced. Insurance companies and local authorities are pressing to outlaw flame and molten bitumen on health and safety grounds. Alternatives to traditional flat roofing are becoming essential. One such alternative are Tor Coatings Elastaseal™ Roof Waterproofing Systems.
Tor Coatings Elastaseal™ has been used on many domestic and industrial roofs across the UK. Repair, renewal, or new-build – the Tor Coatings Elastaseal™ range of cold-applied liquid waterproofing systems provide a reliable solution for waterproofing roofs, balconies, walkways, and terraces that can offer protection against leaks for up to 25 years, as certified by the leading approvals house the British Board of Agrément (BBA).
Tor Coatings Elastaseal™ is a liquid waterproofing system that can be applied directly to most surfaces without heat. It ‘cures’ rapidly to form a solid, long-lasting flexible waterproof membrane.
If required we are able to offer fully built-up roofing systems. Insulation can be provided as a fully designed tapered scheme or as a flat board that will follow the existing falls on the roof. The systems are available guaranteed for 10, 15, 20, and 25 years.
By using a cold-applied system the risk of fire is eliminated. In addition, the risk of injuring both operatives and the general public through burns is eliminated. Once in place, liquid systems pass the most stringent of fire tests.
Modern liquid roof technology offers products that are excellent at standing up to the environment that we live in. Whether it’s UV degradation, extreme weather conditions or chemical attack liquid roofing systems offer a proven ability to endure.
Liquid roof systems offer fantastic value for money, particularly when looking at the life cycle costs of a building. We are often able to overlay existing roof substrates which are not just quick but also mean we are not stripping existing coverings which reduces the number of materials sent off to landfill sites. When the guarantee period is at an end the system requires a simple jet wash, reactivation, and overcoating to reinstate the guarantee.
Fantastic for use when there are protrusions, liquids are able to seamlessly seal the most complex roof and gutter details.
The system can be used on flat roofs, green roofs, pitched roofs, and gutters.
