Faster return to service for commercial roof repairs / Fully Compliant with Part L Building Regulations
Gls Coatings' specialist roofing systems are also an excellent solution for waterproofing leaky metal roofing. The elastomeric nature of the membrane/coating systems means they will easily absorb the natural expansion and contraction cycles of the metal roof without tearing or fracturing. This is critical for a long and successful service life.
The speed of application available with our roof coating systems ensures that the roof is coated and back in service far quicker, with less disruption, than conventional roof applications. Faster return to service keeps costs to a minimum and saves you money.
When combined with our Spray-Foam Insulation, over-coated with our Specialist GLS150W coating, this fully complies with the new Part L Building Regulations, governing the insulation properties, when existing buildings are being renovated.
And our roof coatings can be used to fully encapsulate asbestos, without disturbing it – avoiding the costs of a complete re-roof, while guaranteeing a rapid return to service.

It is easy to see why asbestos was hailed as being a brilliant solution for the building trade – it has many applications from lining airing cupboards to providing durable asbestos cement roofs which have lasted for decades.
However, many of these roofs are now failing and letting in water. Yet it is an extremely costly business to over-clad or replace an asbestos cement roof, with the possibility of the release of harmful asbestos fibres.
This is where GLS Coatings Asbestos Encapsulation System proves extremely cost-effective – WITHOUT disrupting the business.
GLS Coatings Asbestos Encapsulation System is the safest method of fixing your asbestos roof. This is because our Asbestos Encapsulation System prevents the further release of harmful asbestos fibres into the air. With no disturbance to the asbestos, work can be completed quickly with
