The existing roof construction was a pitched roof, finished with a bitumen felt waterproofing system. The general condition of the existing waterproofing system was extremely poor and in need of urgent attention. The deterioration of the original waterproofing system had exposed the deck; with the decking exposed to the elements structural integrity was severely compromised – the decking was saturated and coming apart to the touch, this presented real dangers to the residents below and the operatives throughout the refurbishment. There were no doubts that the current bituminous waterproofing system had far exceeded its serviceable life. The original waterproofing system at Edgewood Road incorporated a decking board; this particular decking system is no longer classified as a suitable structural deck and therefore needed to be removed and replaced with a suitable alternative. The high quality workmanship of the team from Brindley Asphalt Ltd ensured that the project has been completed within timescales and to the highest of standards. Replacing the system with Euroroof Built Up Roofing (BUR) waterproofing system incorporating insulation achieved the required minimum u-value of 0.18 W/m²K. Euroroof systems offer enhanced performance properties including flexibility, excellent fire ratings, stronger reinforcement and ease of application on site.
