  • Concrete

  • Existing membrane

Long lasting approach to green roofs

Liquid rubber roofing for green roof base layer | P500 Both EPDM sheet membrane and the P500 liquid rubber waterproofing systems are suitable for green roof projects and provide a long-term solution for this specialist type of roofing. Green roofs are more labour intensive to create than simple reroofing projects, so require an approach that will offer longevity and reliability.

With many layers to add, including heavier drainage layers often made up of gravel and other small stones, ensuring the base layer remains stable and intact is a critical process that cannot be overlooked. Green roofs hold a considerable amount of water and need to be reliable for the duration of the installation.

Using liquid rubber for your green roof base is a great way to ensure a reliable watertight seal, perfect for carrying the additional water that your installation will process over its lifetime.
