A case study here we’d like to share with you – a tricky industrial roof in Melbourne CBD; actually it’s an historic building.
This is a power station providing power for a many of the new high rise buildings being built up and around it.
We were asked to come in through another contractor. The builder in this case required professional waterproofers with a specialized system to rectify a badly deteriorated roof. This roof was leaking into the power station below.
So we took the challenge on and developed a system that would work and we’re very happy with the results and just like to share that with you.
There were five separate roof areas over the whole span of the building which was an old Victorian building – some hundred and so years old.
The various roofs had been built up over the period of time with a multitude of different types of membranes.
So each roof, pretty much had to be dealt with individually. One of our suppliers actually said there was more cracks than roof when we showed them photographs and a proposal to rectify.
Our meticulous preparation involved filling up all the voids and cracks, giving the roof a new surface for the liquid membrane to adhere to.
After the preparation was completed, then we started spraying a liquid rubber membrane over the top.
We built up the membrane to approx 1500 micron.
Specialist areas were treated with special reinforcing mat and sprayed with a dark grey liquid rubber, to help reflect that a little bit.
The Liquid Rubber was idea as the roof had multiple stairs adjoining into various levels. We could successfully flashed off all fixing points.
This was a very successful job, all things came together really, really well and their clients were very happy with us, we’re very happy with the end result. We were proud of this job which showcased this historic building.
Just like to share that with you, thanks for listening, if you got any questions please give us a call.
Spray application of liquid waterproofing over coats the existing – so there is no need to remove the roof or even the existing failed sheet membrane.
Our spray equipment can be dismantled and easily re-assembled on rooftop terraces. This means we can provide waterproofing membranes for all roofs which have access.
Most often roof replacement is not necessary – after careful preparation our roof waterproofing system can be sprayed over existing surfaces.
