Northampton bay window

Filed under: Current Projects — Sarah Christie @ 11:38 am

Pleased that rain didn’t stop play today, which meant Martyn was able to crack on and breathe new life into this bay window flat roof in a matter of a few hours. The job is now ‘over’, but fortunately the roof isn’t ‘out’.

As good as new.  New boards and felt were all that were needed to restore this bay window flat roof.

Northampton bay window

Filed under: Current Projects — Sarah Christie @ 11:19 am

Had to crack the whip with this job as the property was just behind Northampton cricket club. I think Simon and Martyn were thinking they could pull a fast one and slip off to see the cricket. I was onto them though so I don’t think they would have dared!

It’s not difficult to see the care and attention this poor bay window needed. Fortunately though the Synergy lads soon got onto it to ensure our customer would be bowled over (ahem, sorry about that, just couldn’t resist).

This bay window flat roof was in need of urgent attention. Boards and felt were both rotten.

Kettering update

Filed under: Current Projects — Sarah Christie @ 10:58 am

Very excited to be making a site visit today! When I think back to how neglected and dangerous this factory roof was upon our first site visit I can’t help but marvel at how different and solid it looks now.

On the homestraight now and are just awaiting to take delivery of the uv resistant skylights*. Really looking forward to my next site visit to see it finally complete. It’s been a long road but we’re very near the finish line.

*EXANTM EXELLTM D sheet is a transparent polycarbonate sheet with proprietary UV protection on both sides offering excellent weathering properties. With its excellent impact resistance it is a good candidate for a wide variety of building and construction applications. LEXAN EXELL D sheet can be easily cold formed into gentle curves which makes it a good material choice for skylights, covered walkways, barrel vaults etc. LEXAN EXELL D sheet is thermoformable and can be thermoformed into the desired geometry whilst retaining the UV resistant protection specially developed for weather resistant applications.

Really beginning to look like a roof again.  All boarded and sealed and now awaiting delivery of uv resistant polycarbonate skylights.

Good to see the ‘medics’ working hard to restore this part of the roof which was feeling very sorry for itself. Thankfully the whole roof didn’t require major surgery, just a relatively minor operation.

New joists, underpurlins, felt and batton and the final part of the reconstruction surgery, new slate tiles. You’ll be pleased to see she is now well on the road to recovery.

The majority of the roof is in good repair so just needed to give this part attention.  New Joists, underpurlins, felt & battons and tiles.

Bretton Verge Rebuild

Filed under: Current Projects — admin @ 4:02 pm
New verge installed after changing the felt and battens and making some adjustments to the lead work. We had to replace some tiles but took tiles from the back of the dormer so the new tiles would match the old. Replacing the tiles at the back of the dormer with new to weather eventually.

This customer had just installed some cladding from one of our colleagues, however the look of the building was let down by a verge that was untidily installed. We agreed a price and booked the work in, unfortunately once we had started to take the roof apart we discovered some extra issues with the roof. We stopped work and contacted the owners. The felt and battens supporting the tiles had rotted, knowing there is little point continuing to install tiles onto a shoddy foundation we rearranged the work to include the additional structural work. The customer was very happy with the results – another happy customer…

Oh dear, not a good look! Think this roof is in need of a little bit of TLC. Looks like this was previously a bit of a bodge job. Beware the cowboys out there! The tiles are in very poorly health and are ‘bandaged’ with flash band. Time to give this part of the roof lifesaving resuscitation.

Luckily our lads got onto it to give it a roof lift (see next blog).

As you can see, the tiles are in a poor state of repair and are being held together with flash band.  These are in need of urgent repair.
