Harnessing the Power of Liquid Rubber: A Case Study on Cost-Effective and Robust Roof Repair Solutions
Case Study - Roof Repairs
How to repair a roof with an existing leaking waterproofing membrane.
The Findlay-Evans Team were contracted to repair a leaking commercial rooftop; the existing membrane had deteriorated – most likely due to an inability to move with expansion and contraction of the roof surface.
We over coated the existing damaged membrane with a spray apply Liquid Rubber waterproofing barrier.
This provided a robust waterproofing membrane with fast spray installation without the costly alternative and disruption of replacing the old roof.

Using Liquid Rubber Waterproofing Membranes
Our preferred choice of waterproofing product for roof projects is the Liquid Rubber system.
Liquid Rubber membranes have the unique properties of extreme flexibility combined with robust adhesion to the surface – both ideal qualities for a rooftop waterproofing membrane.
Flexibility is a vital property for quality roof waterproofing membranes
A Liquid Rubber membrane will expand and contract with the thermal cycle of a building. This means Liquid Rubber has the capability of moving with the structure or substrate it is adhered to.
Liquid Rubber has an elasticity with elongation to 800% and memory 95%.
There is no other product on the market that we know of that can move with buildings and structures in such way as Liquid Rubber.
Liquid Rubber also has the added ability of enhanced longevity and guaranteed will not crack with age.
Extreme Flexibility Of Liquid Rubber
Why Use Liquid Applied Waterproofing Membranes
Liquid Membranes provide a robust fully bonded waterproof membrane – NO SEAMS OR JOINS.
Liquid roof membranes also conform to the contour and shape of the roof substrate – perfect for profiles, complex and irregular contours.

Spray Applied Liquid Waterproofing Applications
Sheet membranes have seams or joins which are a point of weakness for water leaks – there is always the potential for joins to delaminate with age.
Water can then track underneath these cracked joins and quite often end up quite a distance from the original point of entry. This makes it extremely difficult to detect the source of water leaks and provide a solution.
Liquid applied membranes are a monolithic, fully-bonded and strongly adhered membrane without joins or seams – preventing cracking due to aging and UV sunlight.
Waterproofing Membranes - SEAMLESS & FLEXIBLE
Spray application is a very fast process – we can spray up to 800m2 coverage per day of a rapid curing waterproof membrane, depending on climatic conditions.
Liquid Rubber membranes can provide water protection to a wide range of surfaces – concrete, timer, metal, flat, sloped or curved.This is an effective and cost efficient method of remedial work without the costly need of removing the existing roof.
