Hotmelt Roofing

Hot melt waterproofing systems have been a synonym of reliability and performance in the UK for more than four decades. Today, many distinguished buildings in Ireland also have installed a hot melt roofing system, making use of its countless benefits, which include extremely high-performance, excellent life expectancy, and competitive installation costs.

The term ‘Hot Melt’ commonly refers to a liquid membrane that is hot applied directly to a prepared structural surface to create a fully bonded seamless, monolithic layer that can adjust to the shape of a building and create an effective waterproofing solution.

Fast to apply and to cure, it can be installed in a substantially shorter time than conventional waterproofing membranes, reducing the overall roofing costs.
