At Regions Commercial Roofing, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of modern roofing. Roofing’s increasingly complex issues must be met with new, cutting-edge solutions. So, we do our best to educate our customers on the benefits they’ll enjoy by choosing these offerings.
Take a liquid applied roof membrane for example. These membranes are constructed in place using a liquid resin and a fabric reinforcement. These membranes are becoming increasingly popular with commercial and residential customers alike due to their seamlessness and superior waterproofing protection.
Although similar to a roof coating, liquid applied roof membranes do more in the way of extending a roof’s lifespan and preserving its structural integrity. Before we touch on liquid applied membrane’s advantages, here’s its simple 4-step process:
- Apply a base or foundation layer
- Put on the fabric reinforcement
- Encapsulate with another layer of base coat
- Add two more layers of topcoat.
In addition to the ease with which they can be applied, liquid applied roofing membranes don’t require expensive installation equipment or command high labor costs. These membranes only take about 24 hours to set. In comparison to most procedures your roof could undergo, fluid-applied membrane applications require minimal downtime and cause very little disturbance to people inside the building.
We recommend liquid applied roofing membranes because of their plasticity. This allows these membranes to change shape and conform to tough transitional areas. They also stick onto a number of different substrates easily, e.g., modified bitumen, metal roofing, etc. This makes it highly versatile.
Liquid applied membranes come in several colors. Most membranes and coatings come in white to maximize their solar reflectivity. This helps prevent heat damage and structural degradation to your roof over time.
