Liquid Membrane Roofing
Liquid Membrane Roofing
What Is Liquid Membrane
Liquid membrane roofing is a type of waterproof roofing system composed of a liquid-applied material, typically acrylic or polyurethane. This material is applied in layers to create a seamless waterproof barrier on the roof. The membrane is usually reinforced with a fabric or mesh, which is embedded into the liquid material and helps to increase the strength of the waterproof layer. Liquid membrane roofing is often used on flat roofs and can provide superior protection against water damage and leaks.

Why Should You Go With Liquid Membrane Roofing?
When compared to alternative roofing systems, liquid membrane roofing provides various advantages, including:
Without adding substantial weight to the current underlying roofing system or structure, liquid membranes provide remarkable protection against water infiltration and other environmental conditions.
The durability and dependability of liquid membrane roofing contribute to the estimated lifetime of the roof system to which it is applied. Furthermore, most formulations have increased reflectivity, which helps to cut cooling expenditures throughout the summer. Also, due to its low weight, it may be installed over existing roof surfaces (in excellent condition) without increasing insulation to fulfill the various energy code requirements that apply when replacing existing roof systems.
When properly applied, liquid roofing solutions create an incredibly resilient yet flexible shield, protecting against abrasions, chemical spills, impacts, and the stresses of extreme weather conditions.
Liquid membrane roofing systems are made from non-toxic materials, making them an eco-friendly choice. In addition, they can be recycled or reused, reducing the amount of waste created by traditional roofing materials.
Liquid membrane roofing systems are considerably safer to install than other roofing materials. Bitumen, for example, must be heated to higher degrees in a kettle before it becomes a liquid, which enables it to be distributed in situ. This produces a strong stink and raises the risk of kettle fires or staff burns. The use of roof torches in the installation of modified bitumen membranes has sparked building fires. In contrast, the liquid membrane application does not need heating and produces less odor because of the low V.O.C.
Types of Liquid Membrane Roof Systems
Our industry’s three most common forms of liquid membrane systems are polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), polyurethane, and silicone. The reinforcing fabric is immersed in the liquid and chemically attached to the neighboring membrane in these systems. Because the membrane can flow around any puncture, it produces superior flashing details than other roofing systems. These systems come with lengthy manufacturer warranties of up to 30 years.
These fast-healing and highly durable liquid membrane systems offer versatility across temperatures with catalysts, inhibitors, and seasonal grades. PMMA liquid-applied membranes also enable straightforward, long-term repairs thanks to their chemical bonds. Some low-V.O.C. variants suit enclosed spaces, like indoor fountains. However, due to their limited “pot life,” there’s higher waste. Application with squeegees and rollers often incurs increased labor costs.
Polyurethane liquid membranes offer PMMA-like benefits: fast curing and easy patching. Key difference: component count. Two types: multicomponent (quick but short pot life) and single-component (slower cure but longer shelf life). Apply with squeegee, roller, or sprayer. Sprayer’s speed reduces labor costs, but strict temperature conditions (typically 40-50 degrees or higher) demand careful installation planning.
Silicone-based liquid roof systems typically skip the need for a primer and can be applied with a squeegee, roller, or sprayer. They share benefits with PMMA and Polyurethane systems but have a stronger odor, limiting their suitability in sensitive places like hospitals and schools.
