Hot Melt Waterproofing
Hot melt roofing systems, such as PermaTEC, Permaquik, Bakor and Hydrotech are a combination of rubberised asphalt or bitumen, applied hot with carefully selected reinforcement fabrics and protection layers to form a strong, flexible, waterproof roof membrane.
Hot waterproofing systems are particularly suited for waterproofing concrete structures, buildings and roof decks and are commonly used on many of today’s major construction projects.
Mastic asphalt provides a tough and durable waterproof membrane with a proven track record for durability
and is commonly used to provide waterproof and hardwearing surface to roofs, balconies, roof top car parks and service decks.
Mastic asphalt has a long history of use, is installed by skilled craftsman, it’s recyclable and Carbon Zero.
Today’s rapidly changing climate and sensitive economy means Green Roofing is here to stay! Environmentally and ecologically friendly green roofs provide many benefits as well as being aesthetically pleasing.
Green roofs have numerous social, economic and environmental benefits and can contribute positively to issues surrounding climate change, flooding, biodiversity and declining green space in urban areas.
Built Up Felt
Today’s high-performance torch on felt systems provide an economical, strong, waterproof and durable waterproofing solution. Modern flame free installation methods and felt materials can be used to minimise the risk of fire where required.
Working with Bauder, Iko, Radmat, SIG and other manufacturers Knight Asphalte can provide a waterproofing solution for any type or size of project.
Liquid waterproofing materials cure to produce a seamless waterproof roofing membrane. They are applied cold by brush, roller or spray and require no heating equipment resulting in a very safe system of application.
Many liquid waterproofing systems can be applied over existing roofing materials and are available in a variety of colours.
