Bituminous membranes are one of the most known insulation solutions mainly because of their low cost. It is technically correct to apply to a substrate that is not coarse (rough), unless other work is carried out to allow it. Due to the many different types and qualities of bituminous membranes, they require great care when choosing and applying them and their usual lifespan is between 5-8 years.
Brushable waterproofing materials are another widespread way for roofs or basement waterproofing. Due to the nature of the materials and the method of application are suitable for application in many types of substrates. Their application is done, usually with roller or brush, while many times it is possible to apply by spraying. Their advantage is that they do not have joints (such as bituminous membranes) and the lifespan for cheap materials is 2-5 years while most of them vary between 7-10 years.
