Cold Applied Roofing

Cold applied roofing

Cold applied roofing utilises either a single- or two-pack waterproofing solution that uses a cold process adhesive to bond with the substrate, as an alternative to traditional hot works. The seamless, durable waterproofing with high penetration resistance, can be applied to most complex projects that include upstands, penetrations and complex detailing. Cold applied roofing solutions include self-adhesive products which you can read more about here.

Both single- and two-pack cold applied roofing solutions can be used on all roof types, including warm, inverted and full overlay applications. Full bond can be achieved with most types of substrates, including existing layers if these are of adequate quality. This makes cold applied roofing solutions ideal for both new projects and refurbishments. The high performance and application flexibility of these products are suitable for all sizes of residential, commercial and industrial projects.

Fast installation and curing times, and the ability to apply the solutions in poor weather conditions, can help overcome practical challenges of modern construction and reduce project costs. Cold application is also ideal for projects with there could be restrictions on which products and installation techniques are implemented, for example, live sites. Slip resistant finishes can also be achieved for specification on balconies and fire escapes.

The permanent weather resistance cold applied roofing can achieve offers long lasting protection of the building envelope from weathering. Practical maintenance requirements are minimal as cold applied systems can be overlaid or repaired relatively easily.
