Refurbishment of corrugated roofing and cladding gives you the opportunity to upgrade the insulation of your building, and create a new weather-tight covering. This can be achieved by replacing the whole roof with a composite panel for simple and faster site installation, or a built-up roof cladding system, or - where appropriate - over-cladding the whole building envelope (roof and walls). Our roofing teams have the expertise to refurbish asbestos cement roofs and profiled metal systems, single or twin skin. We can assess the condition of your existing building and provide consultative advice and options to suit various budgets.
Built-up felt roofing
Built-up felt roofing is a well-established method of weather proofing that uses modern bituminous membranes. Systems with high SBS (styrene butadiene styrene) content produce an elastomeric felt that is designed to move with the thermal fluctuations of your building, which in turn increases system life-expectancy.
Modern high-performance felt roofing can be installed using traditional pour and roll or torch-applied techniques. If your site has a ‘no flame’ policy, we can also offer cold-applied felt roofing, which doesn’t use hot bitumen or gas torches.
Working with our supply chain partners, we offer single-point guarantees covering materials and workmanship for up to 20-years.
Liquid applied roofing
Liquid-applied roofing systems offer a seamless, cold-applied roof coating, which is particularly suited to buildings with complex detailing or housing extensive plant equipment. They are applied by brush or roller and produce a strong waterproof membrane that is seamless and flexible. Liquid-applied coatings can incorporate colour contrast walkways with skid-inhibiting surfaces, and are guaranteed for up to 25-years.
Single-ply roofing systems are lightweight flexible membranes typically made from PVC or Thermoplastic PolyOlefin (TPO). Thickness is between 1mm and 2mm. They are installed rapidly and “flame-free” using hot-air welding, adhesives and fasteners. Single-ply roofing is a cost-effective method for covering large roof areas and the finished product is a modern, aesthetically pleasing roofing system.
Flat to pitched roof conversions
If you have an old flat roof that suffers from ponding water, you may find that flat to pitched roofing could be the answer. In a flat to pitched roof conversion, a new lightweight steel subframe is built over the existing roof and then over-clad. They are assembled at roof level, and because they’re lightweight, there’s only limited increased weight on the building structure. The new pitched roof allows rainwater to drain from the area completely that reduces the potential for future water ingress. Each system is bespoke, designed to suit the existing structure. Our regional teams have surveyors on hand to discuss and advise on system suitability and cost.
Guttering and rainwater systems
Removing rainwater effectively from a roof is crucial to keeping it watertight and prolonging its life. That’s why providing the most efficient guttering system is an integral part of any roofing project. We also provide gutter maintenance service plans to help maintain your new guttering.
Roof light renewal
A dark building can be transformed into a light and airy environment, simply by replacing existing roof lights. Roof light renewal can often be undertaken with little or no disruption to daily activities, so your building can remain fully operational throughout the works. Plus, increasing natural daylight in a building can reduce the need for artificial lighting which will reduce your energy costs.
Asbestos cement removal
Chrysotile asbestos cement roofs are often found in older industrial buildings. As concerns have grown about the health implications of asbestos material, many companies are hiring specialist asbestos removal contractors to remove them. If you suspect your building has asbestos contamination and would like to find out more about removing it in a safe and easy way, then we’re here to help.
Green roofing refers to a roof that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing medium, planted over a waterproof membrane. Greater awareness about sustainability and carbon footprints in recent years has created an increase in the number of green roof installations. Green roofs have numerous benefits including greater water absorption and slower release, allowing the water to be recycled elsewhere as brown water. Green roofs can also help with insulation during the winter and help buildings stay cool in the summer.
