Roof terrace waterproofing system
Liquid plastic waterproof system for roof terrace
Roof terrace were used in the southern countries as early as the 2nd millennium, where it was the most common type of roof. A wooden boards were installed on the roof with gaps between them, through which water could drain. Was mainly used for drying the laundry. Nowadays it is used more as a place of leisure or rooftop café to enjoy the views and the sun.
Roof terrace is not as popular or widespread in the Nordic countries as in the south. This is due to the specific nature of our climate and the additional costs required to obtain a weather-resistant and long-lasting roof. However, it can be said that such a roof is not uncommon in Estonia. When choosing a terrace, we can confidently help you with our experience and solutions what are developed and tested in Germany over long period of time.
Triflex BIS is a choice for those who want to make the roof surface usable on a daily basis and to be attractive to the eye. An ordinary flat roof is built in such a way that its main purpose is to keep rooms warm and dry and used time to time for maintenance work. SBS bitumen felt is not wear-resistant and not suitable roof terrace top membrane where you can walk on daily basis without additional covering. In order for the roof to be used as a terrace, a different construction must be built. The components must include a strong thermal insulation board with a load-bearing and load-distributing cement board or concrete, which is covered with a waterproof liquid plastic waterproofing and a decorative layer. Now we have a usable roof that is strong and rigid, does not suffers from the use of terrace furniture and is wear-resistant for everyday use. All components are glued together and the formation of thermal bridges is prevented.
