Egremont Primary School on The Wirral required a variety of external waterproofing improvements, which were approved and funded under the Department for Education’s Condition Improvement Fund.
BBR Roofing were appointed to carry out these works which included roof slating, flat roof waterproofing, external cladding of dormer windows, window replacement, and some internal reconstruction works.
The duo-pitch slated roofs formed an internal corridor valley, with a series of dor-mer windows along each side of the flat valley. All of these flat areas were refurbished by being stripped back to the original decking, and then the addition of a self-adhesive foil backed vapour control layer, 120mm thermal insulation bonded in polyurethane adhesive, and a waterproofing layer of SIKA Decothane Ultra on a self-adhesive carrier membrane.
All of this work required no flame application which ensured the safety of the existing building. It was also provided with the benefit of a 25 year guarantee.
