American Hydrotech is a recognized leader in the development, production, and distribution of premium waterproofing and roofing products. Technologies include MM6125® (hot fluid-applied rubberized asphalt), Ultimate Assembly® (open-joint paver assembly), and Garden Roof® (transforming roofs and plazas into natural, landscaped environments).

American Hydrotech’s Garden Roof® allows the design professional to transform virtually any flat and most sloped roofs (of up to a 45-degree pitch) into a landscaped environment. Designed as a lightweight, low-profile system, the Garden Roof® assembly can be safely installed on roof and plaza decks engineered for as little as 15 pounds per square foot saturated dead load. And because the assembly incorporates Hydrotech’s Monolithic Membrane 6125®, a proven roofing/waterproofing membrane, the building owner can be assured of a watertight structure.
