Firstly, the surface has to be well prepared to accept a liquid coating. Where a bitumen coating is already down it should be thoroughly brushed/scrubbed to remove any loose or blown bitumen. Some of it will still be bonded very well and that is fine. It should also be jet washed to be clean and free of dust and dirt. Felt adhesive such as Carbobond, is a solvent based mixture of bitumen, fillers and fibres, formulated for bonding felt (as the name suggests), so it is better to apply this first then the roofing felt which will (of course) adhere to it. Bitumen paint can then be applied on top of the roofing felt for extra protection and/or aesthetics. Will bitumen paint cure a leaking concrete roof?

The primer will act as the bond between the bitumen and the top coat liquid membrane. The coverage per litre is dependant upon the porosity of the surface. For metal and smooth surfaces 10m 2 per litre per coat should be obtained. On porous surfaces coverage will be considerably less. Once you've gone through both steps, apply the bituminous paint to the entire surface evenly and in as many coats as required—but note two coats is the recommended minimum. For best practice, it is also advisable to maintain an ambient temperature (minimum 10 degrees Celsius) in warm and dry conditions. Applying Bituminous Paints and Coatings
