Industrial roof waterproofing

Waterproofing work on new industrial flat roofs by installing synthetic membranes or bitumen.

Construction of a new industrial building, and installation of a new roof

Here at Vincent Piront, we design and install new industrial roofing on buildings of all types: production plants, storage facilities, shopping centres or other commercial spaces, car showrooms, logistics centres, and so on.

For this type of project, we work hand in hand with engineering consultancies or architects, closely following the requirements set in the specifications. That being said, our specialists will not hesitate to suggest improvements that might be made through one or another change, and are always ready to reach out to your contact person with precise technical arguments.

Many general contractors consult us because they know that we are capable of installing roofing over really large surfaces in really short timescales, and that they can count on our engineers and industrial roofers for sound advice. Here at Vincent Piront, we can work with very tight deadlines when it comes to giving advice, doing the work, and getting the job done to the very highest standards.


We are able to install different types of waterproofing for your industrial building’s flat roof; both in synthetic membrane (PVC, TPO, EPDM) and bitumen. We specialize in laying PVC membranes. They offer clean finishes, technical performance (linked to the type of membrane used), durability, good aesthetics and quick execution.


Our achievements, covering industrial halls, warehouses, shopping complexes, sports centres and stadiums, attest to our expertise and know-how for your construction or renovation projects.

Specific process for the realization of industrial roofs

Drawing on our extensive experience in the waterproofing of the flat roofs of industrial buildings, we closely monitor your projects, from the design phase to the build phase and maintenance.

Vincent Piront SA constantly seeks out innovation in all of its business activities. This mindset enables us to stand out in our business sector and offer our clients the best technical solutions.

step 1

Waterproofing membranes, and installation adapted to the specifics of your industrial roofing

The unit of our company that specialises in renovating roofing primarily uses roof coverings from SIKA, a renowned Swiss group that offers a really wide range of top-quality waterproofing membranes.

The choice of PVC and TPO membranes is based on complex structural analyses that are carried out by our top engineers. And we also take other parameters into consideration:

  • Better for the environment: these membranes are “greener” than their bituminous competitors, because they are recyclable at end of life.
  • Lower fire risk: these membranes are laid out and applied with hot air rather than a blowtorch, and that drastically reduces any risk of fire.
  • Greater durability: the lifespan of these membranes is longer: they stay waterproof for 25 to 30 years, as opposed to just 15 for bituminous membranes.
  • Greater efficiency: these single-layer synthetic membranes can be applied more quickly than their bituminous competitors, which need two layers.

step 2

Following up on your industrial-roofing renovation project

Our company has more than 30 industrial roofers, who work in several teams. Each team is headed by a team lead who has received in-depth training and who has demonstrated their knowledge of our trade and our in-house rules.

The team leads are supported by a site foreman, who is responsible for monitoring every single roof-renovation project on a regular basis—at least once a week. The site foreman is in turn supported by a site manager, who sees to administrative and financial follow-up and to the management of your project file.

Here at Vincent Piront, then, we guarantee top-quality work thanks to our knowledgeable and experienced teams, who can respond quickly and flexibly in order to meet your needs.

step 3

Finalisation of the site

You and/or your architect will be present at the final completion of the works.

Warranty and post-renovation management

Only after the works have been completed will we send you the ten-year warranty from the waterproofing membrane manufacturer and a proposal for a yearly or two-yearly maintenance contract depending on the roof’s exposure and your business activity.

step 4

After-sales service

Once the renovation work is completed, our after-sales service takes over, should you have any further requests, such as for the following:

  • creating an opening in a roof after it has been completed so as to add an air-conditioning system
  • readying a roof for a new solar-panel system
  • transforming and adapting the waterproofing to be done
