Single ply repairs April job

Posted on 21 June, 2017 at 1:10" target="_blank">

This months feature Job of the month (april 2017)  takes us to a block of new build flats.  they have been up for around ten years and we maintain the roofs for a  managment company.  Due to a recent downpour one of the flats had water ingressing into the property in two seperate areas. We inspected the roof surfaces to find a hopper blocked.   this had cuased the water to build up in the boxgutter and then finding its way invia a weak weld in the singleply rofing system.    This was detected by probing all the joints on the roof pitches  ajacent to the issue .  The second issue we found came from poor detailing around the safety rail protruison.  there was only a 20mm  upstand round the protrusion and the detailing for ths was poor.  and was not adhesed to the collar propely.  The rain water was then running down and ingressing into the property at a lower point of the roof we remedied this by using a peice of Protan membrane and making a collar to the detail welded to the existing membranes. Our training in numerous single ply systems helped us solve the issues quickly and promptly
