When faced with cut edge corrosion generally use Giromax Seamsil which is a unique flexible silicone remedial system. The system, initially developed to solve the problem of cut edge corrosion on steel roofing has now become recognised as the most versatile and effective protection treatment in any situation where exposed metal is subjected to aggressive moisture conditions. For this reason, manufacturers across a variety of industries are specifying Seamsil in the production of fabrications where resistance to corrosion damage is a requirement.
If you are looking for a roof and wall cladding refurbishment by painting your existing sheets we generally use Giromax Delcote which is a silicone coating designed for re-coating roof and wall cladding. It is the ideal product for reinstating a protective coating to profiled metal cladding where its standard 200 micron application will provide protection.
With regards to rooflights coating we generally use the Giromax Delglaze, which once the rooflights are clean of moss and lichen, Delglaze seals in the exposed fibres, remaining flexible enough to accommodate rooflight movement. Fully cured Delglaze provides a tough clear elastomeric coating with crack bridging capabilities that is particularly effective on difficult to replace rooflights on asbestos and fibre cement roofing. Delglaze is based on a unique blend of polyurethane resins to produce a coating, which provides a tough durable finish with a high degree of impact, erosion and weather resistant properties.
This system is an alternative to traditional roofing and designed for pitched roofs and is suitable for use with timber frame buildings. It comprises of a pan flat sheet which is mechanically seamed over clips to secure the roof. It can be applied to roof and walls, all fixings are hidden so there is a clean and attractive finish.
We are trained in the installation of Kingspan Topdek which is an LPCB insurer approved membrane roof deck for flat and pitched roofs above 0.72 degrees. This is a single component factory pre-engineered roof deck comprising a high performance single ply PVC membrane which we use Sika Trocal. This system provide a fast build, single fix installation and has a superior weather tightness, thermal performance, insulation, air tightness, fire performance and structural performance.
These systems are a designed fall arrest and fall restraint systems and can be deployed across virtually all the major roof types including standing-seam, composite, built-up-on-site, secret-fix and membrane. Fixing the posts does not damage the integrity of the roof and therefore will not compromise the roof guarantee.
One of the most sustainable approaches to construction is to refurbish an existing structure. This is when a sub frame structure, aluminium or galvanised spacer bar or top hat is installed onto the existing structure. On top of the existing structure we would install insulation depending on U Values, complete with a steel spacer bar and bracket system. This would then be fixed with integral colour headed screws and tapes as required by the manufacturers recommendations. We would recommend an entering is consulted to ensure that the existing structure would be able to take the additional weight of the new roof.
