Caugh Hill Water Treatment Works
NI Water board have many locations throughout Northern Ireland, many of these locations are in mountainous areas and therefore can be subject to harsh weather.
The offices and pump station below were badly affected by the rain water penetrating through the asphalt substrate. Harsh weather, particulary frost and snow will cause untold damage if the roof remains untreated.
All conventional roofing materials are prone to failure. This can be caused by the weather, poor installation or simply the movement of the building. When defects occur this can lead to water ingress into the building. Here are a few of the reasons why roofs leak and why liquid roofing is an ideal refurbishment solution.
- Inability to shed water.
- Failure of joints.
- Degredation of the protective membrane.
- Thermal movement.
THE SOLUTION & BENEFITS
Patterson Protective Coatings Ltd inspected the roof, and then specified Tor Elastaseal 15yr as a seamless, breathable and cold applied durable coating.
Liquid roofing is the process of applying high technology waterproof coating systems onto roof substrates. These systems can be applied as new, or over existing roof membranes and are suited to flat, pitched and domed roof designs. Significantly, there are no hot works involved, meaning a property can remain safely in use whilst the roof is being refurbished.
The completed coating system encapsulates the entire roof seamlessly including any plant and protrusions and forms a breathable, waterproof barrier.
