Sarah Spink, CEO of the Liquid Roofing and Waterproofing Association (LRWA), explains the steps that should be taken to correctly specify liquid-applied membranes and what tools are available to help. 

The number of liquid-applied membranes now available to specifiers and contractors is vast, including a wide range of different technologies. Although the growth of the liquid roofing and waterproofing sector has generated many opportunities, it has also opened the door to challenges. With so much choice, it can be difficult to establish which product is most suitable for an application.

Following the Grenfell tragedy and changes taking place across the wider construction industry, steps must be taken to avoid products being specified or used incorrectly. To assist with this process and help you make the right choice, here are three key questions to consider when selecting a liquid and advice on how to address them.

4 key learning points for this session:

  1. The importance of making informed product choices based on verified third party data
  2. The tools available from independent sources to enable informed product choices
  3. What the Code for Construction Product Information is and the key clauses that will impact how roofing products are marketed
  4. Where to find independent guidance to assist in the specification of liquid applied membranes in line with British Standards, current best practice and Building Regulations
