Project Description

Client:   Aldi
Location:   Netherton, Liverpool
Requirement: Repair of failed roof valleys
Programme:   4 weeks
Value: £24,000
Designer:   SIKA

The roof valleys had failed on the store and a solution was required to carry out a roof repair in order to avoid the major disruption and cost associated with re-roofing.

The Challenges

We surveyed the condition of the roof and designed and specified an appropriate solution with a selected product supplier, SIKA.

Key issues on this project also related to safe working on the roof and the ongoing security of the store during the roof repair. We specified specially designed scaffolding to ensure full edge protection with access towers removed out of working hours. The valleys were reformed in timber and a SIKA waterproofing system, Decothane was applied in four layers.

In addition to our quality control systems, the SIKA technical representative made weekly inspections and the completed roof repair is now covered by a 15 year guarantee.
