Liquid rubber used for this concrete holding tank at a waste water treatment facility for containment.
Liquid Rubber is a unique product with a successful track record in the North American market for over 20 years, where the extremes of temperature are much more challenging than in the UK. Liquid Rubber provides an easy to apply, seamless waterproof membrane that meets the ever increasing requirements of environmental and health and safety considerations, with particular reference to roofing.
As a roof covering, Liquid Rubber has many advantages over the other roofing materials; its ease of application being the main advantage, also flexibility and ability to be joined in sections.
Benefits of Liquid Rubber as a Flat Roofing System
Liquid Rubber can be applied to almost any surface as long as that surface is sound and dry. Originally designed for use as a glue, the military adopted Liquid Rubber to line water tanks when on manoeuvres.
No wonder as it’s not only completely impervious to water, but also totally inert, so the water runoff is safe to drink, however I wouldn’t advocate it!

I’ve been working with Steve Dickinson of London Flat Roofing for almost 10 years and to this day I have not come across anyone with more knowledge on London flat roofs. From leak detection to maintenance, Steve has a wealth of knowledge in all aspects of flat roofing.
Our flat roof was previously installed by cowboy builders. Steve did a fantastic job or un-doing their shoddy work and rectifying all of the issues they had caused. No more leaks and no mess either. The price was fair and they got the job done very quickly.
I came back off holiday to find that the flat roof above my kitchen had been leaking and flooded the house. I called and spoke to Steve who came out the same day and within hours he had identified the leak. The very next day he sent out 2 roofers who fixed the leak. Steve then helped me claim through my insurance policy. Very pleased and grateful for his help.
Steve from London Flat Roofing was very knowledgeable. We had several contractors trying to find the issue with our leaking flat roof prior to getting Steve to look at it. After surveying it with a thermal imaging camera Steve was able to pinpoint the exact location of the leak and fixed it there and then. Very pleased and would definitely recommend to others.

Types pf Flat Roofs Liquid Rubber is Used For
We find it most applicable when there are many obstacles on a roof such as:
- Skylight windows.
- Air conditioning units.
- Tank housings.
- Metal staircases.
- Chimney pots/stacks.
There are 3 different types of liquid rubber:
- Spray on.
- Brush or roll on.
- Trowel on.
Spray on Liquid Rubber is used when a large area of roof is to be covered quickly. Up to 800m² of roof can be covered in one day by a small trained crew, and because of the ease of application, the cost is kept to a minimum.
Brush or roll on Liquid Rubber roofing is an option for smaller roof areas – up to about 500m². It has to be laid in two coats, and because of it being a water-based product, in good weather condition both coats can be laid on the same day. Again this brings the cost of application down and makes for a very efficient job, costing less than you would expect for a product of this quality.
Trowel on Liquid Rubber is used for filling large cracks and voids. Before applying Liquid Rubber, all of the above-mentioned Liquid Rubber products can be reinforced using a geomembrane. This instils greater strength whilst maintaining flexibility.
