Repairs

Profiled Steel Sheeted Roofs

Random repairs, such as simple sheet replacement, fitting overlay sheets or the installation of new flashings may be adequate to resolve minor issues. Leaking fixings can be replaced, sheet end laps can be coated and extrusions can be correctly flashed in and sealed.

Replacing the rooflights may also be an option to cure leaks in these roofs.

Asbestos/Cement Roofs

Over time Cement bonded fibre roofs can crack or become porous. It is possible to overlay these damaged sheets with GRP overlay sheets.

The new overlay sheets are designed to a weight of at least 2.6kg/square metre and incorporate an additional woven glass-reinforcing mat. The weather face of the new sheets is treated with a gel coat to provide UV protection. We can match most common profiles.

Replacing the rooflights may also be an option to cure leaks in these roofs.

Flat Roofs

Sometimes it is not necessary to treat the whole roof and often budget restraints mean that it is not viable to do so. In certain cases it may be possible to address specific areas of the roof such as upstand details around the perimeter and around roof lights.

Patch repairs with a purpose manufactured coating may also be an option.

Gutters

Gutters can be cleaned to enable us to carry out localised repairs.

For additional repairs please see ourĀ Pipes, Flues and Copings page.

Roof Repair Projects


Early in 2018 we carried out some roof repairs to The MX5 Restorer in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

The storage Unit roof had holes and cracks in the asbestos cement roof sheets which was causing leaks.

We carried out roof repairs by supplying and fitting matching profile overlay sheets over the damaged sheets. #news #roofrepairs
