Leaking commercial roofs cause many problems. Being able to install a waterproof solution without closing the building is a bonus.
Flat Roof Restored Efficiently
Temple Quay in Bristol, UK, a large multi-tenant commercial building, has recently undergone flat roof refurbishment using Pitchmastic’s Roofshield PmB waterproofing system.
The existing roof had been the source of several leaks, therefore, a long term solution was needed that allowed all the plant and equipment plinths on the roofs and walkways to be encapsulated in order to stem the leaks.
The UK’s building consultancies contacted USL StructureCare for a solution. After a complete site assessment and free survey by a Pitchmastic PmB specialist, a detailed bespoke specification was issued to the client.
The product forms a seamless polyurethane membrane that bonds to virtually any roof substrate and provides outstanding waterproof protection. It combines high elasticity with excellent film strength. This means the system will move the roof without splitting or shearing, providing a long-lasting and durable surface.
Any penetration through the existing roof membrane is an area where water might enter the building. The Roofshield PmB waterproofing system is seamlessly applied by brush or roller and encapsulates the entire roof including areas around existing plant machinery, pipes and rainwater outlets.
It provides the ultimate waterproofing protection and solves the problems associated with the long-term waterproofing of flat roof surfaces.
The system was professionally applied by specialist contractor, USL StructureCare, who is a trained Pitchmastic PmB partner.
Whilst the projected presented a number of challenges to the team, not least working on balconies and walkways serving a live commercial property, the works were completed to everyone’s satisfaction.
