Waterproofing systems are seeing a surge in popularity in New Zealand, particularly for external decks and membrane roofing. It’s these systems that are most commonly favoured above other alternatives, primarily because of their versatility and ultimate effectiveness.
Waterproofing systems are vast in their scope, and cover liquid, torch-on, and self-stick systems. But it is the self-stick systems that have seen the largest increase over the last couple of years.
“Our sales of bituBOND self-stick membranes have doubled in the last year, along with torch-on roofing and tanking systems,” Waterproofing Systems’ John Stallard says. “The market is also moving quickly towards TPO roofing membranes.”
Waterproofing System’s duroTUF TPO membrane is a thermoplastic polyolefin, which is formed into a membrane sheet and reinforced with a heavy duty polyester scrim to provide wind uplift and puncture resistance. “It was developed to allow for extreme pliability, flexibility and weldability during installation,” John says.
