Liquid Roofing – The Market

From the beginnings of the liquid market in bituminous solutions and emulsions, the liquid roofing industry has grown into a £multi-million market with products at the very forefront of waterproofing technology. Whether for refurbishment or new build projects, there are systems and products available that can be used in all areas of roofing, pedestrian areas, car parks and structural waterproofing.

Liquid applied membranes are the fastest growing sector of the flat roofing market. LRWA members have seen roof area supplied and installed in the UK growing by nearly 70% in the past 5 years, demonstrating the increased importance of these systems.

With this substantial growth has come the opportunity for the development of suitable high-quality ancillary products such as insulation, adhesives, trims and other components specifically designed for use with liquid applied membranes.
