First, there needs to be what I call ‘water forensics, roof assessment or investigation’.
So, the big a question: how do you decide on the correct waterproofing method to solve roof leaks?
Choosing the Correct Roof Waterproofing Products
In my experience, it is a combination of choosing quality waterproofing products together with correct roof rectification methodology that will "pay off" in the end.
Different Types of Roof Waterproofing Products
1. Cementitious Membranes
2. Sheet Membranes
3. Liquid Applied Membranes (LAMs)
Findlay-Evans Team use Liquid Applied Membranes for all roof waterproofing projects.

Solvent-free, water-based building products offer immediate solutions to both safer worksites plus quality, high performance adhesives and protection.
Spray-On Membranes to Over Coat Existing Concrete Roof
A frequently asked question in regard to rooftop remedial waterproofing: ‘can the existing surface be re-coated, or does the damaged membrane need the costly and time-consuming option of total removal’?
Equipment mobility & access is particularly relevant for existing concrete slab roofs.
