The coating of the roof by liquid plastic has waterproofing attributes. The coating can even be applied during rainy seasons and still make the roof watertight immediately after application. The effectiveness of the coating can last between 5 to 30 years based on the environment and the purpose.

When applied for insulation of roofing systems, liquid membranes enhance installation of the coating on the same project, but on different surfaces.
