Retail park units protected against leaks after full commercial roof refurbishment
Metal cladding experts, D. Evans Limited, were tasked with a commercial roof refurbishment which involved repairing the cut edge corrosion which had occurred on a retail park’s metal roof. Upon full site survey, delamination and micro checking of the roof sheet coating was also found to be presenting serious risk to the integrity of the roof substrate. Being 2,500 m² in area, D. Evans Limited turned to Sharmans for systems they have been putting their trust and confidence in for 20 years: Seamsil for Cut Edge Corrosion and the Delcote Architectural roof coating system.
The contract time period and minimising building disruption were two critical factors in the successful completion of this project. The main advantages of re-coating rather than over-sheeting the existing cladding was that whole process cost less, took less time and didn’t require shop closures – a retailers worst nightmare! Sharmans were able to support the contractor on site with advice on an existing cut edge corrosion treatment which had been applied to sections of the overlaps. These areas had to be checked and repaired as necessary before the Delcote roof coating system was applied. We also provided timely inspection audits and project sign off. This enabled efficient system application and deadlines to be met so scaffolding could be dismantled and site equipment removed on time.
Thanks to the excellent standards of workmanship and attention to detail given by D.Evans Limited, the client can have complete peace of mind that occupier’s customers, staff, equipment and stock are protected against water ingress for at least 20 years. The only systems to be endorsed by Tata Steel, Delcote and Seamsil have been tried, tested and proven to be more durable than polyurethane, acrylic and hybrid systems. Furthermore, our Project Flow system provides contractors and surveyors with complete quality assurance, from initial site surveys, condition reports and specification generation, through to installation, inspection and guarantee. This along with our market-leading guarantee offer, means there really is nothing comparable in the industrial and commercial roofing sector for ensuring best-in-class systems in the right applications.
D.Evans commented: “Our on-site operatives have been applying Seamsil and Delcote for approximately 20 years on commercial roof refurbishment projects. Within that time, many other similar systems have been brought to market, however, not one comes close to Seamsil and Delcote in terms of ease of application, durability or aesthetics.”
Technical Services Manager, Darren Bamber,commented: “The workmanship and attention to detail carried out on this commercial roof refurbishment was of a very high standard and credit must be given to the installing contractors for delivering such a great project.”
