Refurbishment of existing building
Lenaghen Roofing Services Ltd.
Refurbishment of occupied school building by means of overlaying existing felt roof coverings with a new system. The new system was required to look like a copper roof but provide appropriate savings against the actual use of copper. The construction process involved making good all areas in need of repair, brushing down the roof and preparing to receive new coverings.
The roof was then covered with a bitumen isolation layer prior to the Sarnafil roofing membrane being installed. All membrane laps running from ridge to eaves were hand welded.
Once completed with appropriate eaves ridge and verge details, Sarnafil décor profile were hand welded along the line of each lap, thus creating the appearance of standing seams and giving the impression the roof was in fact copper. Generally, materials were brought to site as required.
Sarnafil overlay system comprising preparation of existing roof bitumen isolation layer and single ply membrane in patinated copper finish with copper patinated décor profiles. Completed roof system inspected by Sarnafil and insurance backed guarantee issued accordingly.
As main contractor Lenaghen roofing were responsible for the planning erection manoeuvring, modifying and dismantling of all scaffolding, edge protection and hoisting as required.
