Commercial Flat Roof to Substation, Birmingham
We recently carried out a commercial flat roof project comprising an overlay of the existing main Asphalt flat roof areas of a substation in Birmingham with new insulated Built Up torch on felt system.
This system is suitable for existing flat roofs which are suitable for overlaying by having minimal blistered and cracked areas.
The main advantages of this system is that it eliminates the high labour and waste costs of stripping up the existing asphalt. There is also the opportunity to install additional insulation.
These works comprised the cleaning of the existing flat asphalt roof surface before the direct application of a bituminous primer.
A torch on vapour control layer was then laid on top of the primed surface before a rigid torch on insulation board was fitted followed by a high performance three layer torch on felt system in mineral finish.
The work was covered by a ten year insurance backed guarantee.
