Video Case Study

Hello, it’s Paul Evans, Findlay-Evans Waterproofing  & Liquid Rubber Melbourne.

Just got a case study here we’d like to share with you. It’s a very tricky industrial roof in the city. Actually on a historic building, a power station that provides power for a lot of the new high rise buildings that have been built up around it.

We were asked to come in through another contractor. The builder in this case, who needed professional waterproofers and a specialized system to rectify a badly deteriorated roof, which was leaking into the power station.

So we took the challenge on and developed a system that would work and were very happy with the results. We’d just like to share that with you. 

In a nutshell what it pretty much is was five separate roof areas over the whole span of the building. Being an old Victorian building, various roofs were built up over time. 

So each roof had to be pretty much dealt with individually. We pretty much pumped up all the grout to the roof from the ground floor. A task in itself and then spread that across the entire surface filling up all the voids and cracks. Giving us a new surface to apply a specialized membrane. 

We let that dry out and then we started spraying our Liquid Rubber membrane over the top and built that up to a 1.5mm thickness. Specialist areas were treated with reinforcing mat. This one  was sprayed with a dark grey rubber to help reflect the heat a little bit. 

It also became quite handy for the builders when they had multiple stairs joining into various levels. 

The job was very successful. The client was very happy with the results.
