Originally founded in 1979, LRWA aims to raise awareness of the technical and financial benefits of specifying liquid-applied roofing & waterproofing systems and to establish product and installation standards to ensure that optimum performance is achieved.

LRWA members are devoted to best industry practice. With the aim of supplying and applying systems to a client’s full satisfaction, advice can be obtained either centrally or from individual member firms. Our aim is to educate and inform specifiers, contractors and the industry as to the properties, correct applications, installation methods and aftercare of liquid waterproofing systems.
