At the core of what Permicoat offers is the application of liquid applied waterproofing systems to flat roof areas & other suitable structures throughout the commercial, industrial and domestic sectors. As part of this service, we are proud to be able to work with an array of industry-leading suppliers & manufacturers. Upon installation of these roofing & waterproofing systems, Permicoat can provide guarantees ranging from 10, 15, 20 and even 25 years.
Working alongside Langley Waterproofing Systems, Permicoat applied the Langley Paracoat 20 year system to the main roof of Clitheroe Golf Club. Permicoat also installed a new roof lantern & replaced 4 roof lights.
In partnership with Sika Liquid Plastics & Vertical Access, the Lancaster Chaplaincy Centre is a great example of a liquid applied system in use because of the type of structure that Permicoat had to deal with.
Liquid applied roofing systems are seamless in the application so it allows it to be applied on a variety of structures & projects.
Liquid applied roofing is a cold-applied process. It eliminates the hazards of using a hot-applied roofing system.
A liquid applied roofing system is easy to maintain throughout it's life-cycle. Permicoat offers maintenance packages to help with this process.
One of Permicoat's earlier projects, Meadowbank Primary School was a great chance for us to work alongside Sika Liquid Plastics. On this roofing project, we offered a 20-year system.
Liquid applied roofing systems were first brought to market in the early 1960’s although the concept of liquid roofing has existed since the early 1800’s when natural bitumen was combined with straw to provide a waterproofing solution for roofs. Fortunately, we no longer use straw and bitumen but systems which have had years of research and development put into them that has resulted in the high performance polyurethane liquids they are today. Liquid membranes tend to be favoured when it comes to providing a waterproofing solution to roof areas with large amounts of roof furniture and awkward detail that would require multiple joints using alternative methods to negotiate.
