Single ply roofing systems are single layered waterproofing systems designed to be long-lasting, resilient and versatile.

Liquid solutions are great for industrial and commercial roofing, walkways and balconies, car park waterproofing and delaminated metal pitched roofs in both refurbishment and new builds. They are ideal for roofs with more complex detailing as they form a tough, non-slip, seamless waterproofing solution.

Mastic asphalt roofing can be used to create a continuous waterproof cover over flat or sloped surfaces. It can be laid on most types of rigid sub-structures including concrete, timber and metal decking. It’s also the perfect solution for green roofs and roof gardens as it forms an excellent barrier to roots. The material is very long-lasting and so suits roofs that expect to receive high volumes of traffic.
