Roof Seal Liquid Membrane – Best Hardware/DIY Product 2022
Repairing an issue on a flat roof can be an expensive and timely process without the tools or knowledge to get the job done right. Unfortunately, this means many people will spend large sums of money hiring professional roofers or might suffer more extensive damage to their homes while awaiting the repairs. With so many products on the market, some better than others, it can be frustrating to find that the solution you’ve paid for hasn’t held up and the leak or damage to your roof has persisted.
We are proud to share that the Roof Seal Liquid Membrane was recently awarded the Best Hardware/DIY Product at The Hardware Show 2022. Run by Hardware Association Ireland at Citywest, the judging panel featured Irish award-winning architect Hugh Wallace.
The Roof Seal system is the next generation of hybrid roofing membranes and offers a modern alternative to traditional GRP, PU, silicone and bitumen roof coatings. Roof Seal is a perfect DIY solution to your flat roofing issues, with no specialist training required.
