Our client was experiencing water ingress in several areas of the top of this rented property in Stepney Green London E1. They contacted us as they needed a London flat roofing specialist contractor. We came and inspected the property for them and although the townhouse was recently re built in the early 90s the Asphalt was coming away from the up-stands in two places. On close inspection the coping stones pointing was also defective. We opted for asphalt overlay system as this was the easiest way to re instate the integrity of the roof once again and without any lengthy time stripping out the asphalt and leaving the property vulnerable to the elements (yes rain(. while carrying out the works. Overlaying can be common with boxgutters and with other types of flat roof systems especially on asphalt as it gives a good clean surface to adhere the membranes to. The bottom course of slates were stripped out for installation purposes and the box gutters and parapet walls primed and allowed to dry prior to the Norde Bitumi 3 layer SBS torch on system being installed. We also incorporated the coping stones with the membranes as part of the system. The slates were then re installed.
