The pictures below are of one of our latest flat roof repair jobs for a roof on a property in Lewisham in Greater London.
The roof in question was approximately 200 M2 and was constructed of stramit boards and asphalt. The roof was leaking severely with numerous cracks. The parapet walls were also badly in need of repair with crumbling brickwork that needed to be replaced.
Firstly we cleared and cleaned the flat roof area and repaired the numerous cracks in the substrate with exterior grade latex. We then rendered the parapet walls to complete the repair. The whole roof, including the parapet walls, was then fully encapsulated using the 3M Skotchkote Roofing System to give a fuly bonded, completely waterproofed finish.
Here is a domestic flat roofing project involving a sagging Dormer roof that The Flat Roof Recovery Company recently carried out at a house in the South of England.
The Dormer roof in question had recently had new upvc windows fitted to it. Over the course of a few months the homeowner noticed that the ceilings in her sons’ bedroom was beginning to crack, on further investigation they noticed that the Dormer roof had started to sag. We were called in to establish the cause of the sagging. We removed the upvc fascia boards and trims etc and were astonished to find that the main support beam had been almost cut through to accomodate the new upvc windows (Images 1 & 2).
