SIKA TROCAL WITH STANDING SEAMS PROFILE FINISH:
Last month we replaced a defective clock tower in Raheny Village Shopping Centre. With Health and Safety are no. 1 priority we made the external structure safe by erecting scaffolding to get our men safely to the top. We then replaced the rotten timbers with new 19mm waterproof marine plywood. We made the structure watertight and weatherproof by using Sika Trocal Type S 1.2mm thick membrane. This system is initially laid onto a 500 gramme separation layer and then mechanically fixed up the side laps every 500mm. We then hot air weld all laps for maximum security from water ingress and finish off the system by hot air welding 25mm Standing Seam Profiles to all laps for the perfect aesthetic finish.
ROOFING MAINTENANCE CONTRACTS:
SM Roofing also carry out numerous successful Roof Maintenance contracts over the years including the up-keep to the giant pharmaceutical company Wyeth Medical plant in Clondalkin, Dublin. Here we carried out roof maintenance to the SIKA Trocal PVC membrane flat roofing package. Call 01 4511742 for full details and price structures.
We also specialize in catering to our smaller domestic clients and carry out roof repairs to all types of existing Slate Roofs using Tegral cement fibre slates or Blue Bangor slate and Concrete Roof Tiles, both new and reclaimed. If required we can repair and install new timber batons along with modern and waterproof breather membranes.
Roof maintenance is required for the up keep to your property and repairs can take place at all points in your roof including verges, hips, ridges and around lead flashing and aluminium flashing’s around your chimney breast. Broken, old and leaking chimney flues can also cause a leaking roof and again we provide a safe and waterproof system with a long list of satisfied customers. We also carry out repairs to leaking skylights whatever the make or model and guarantee all our work.
Flat Roof Repairs are often required due to our very difficult and bad weather conditions and we can offer a hassle free electronic roof scan carried out by trained professionals which can pinpoint the smallest of holes or damaged areas difficult to pick up with the naked eye.
We have had the roof repair contracts to many high profile buildings including the Ashleaf Shopping Center in Crumlin, the Blanchardstown Shopping Center, Independent Newspapers on the Naas road and the Pavilion Shopping Center in Swords, Dublin.
In the Costa Coffee, Newry Co. Down we used a Kingspan Topdeck PVC Panel System. This type of Flat Roofing system is popular with both architects and designers alike for its quick and easy installation methods and techniques. Kingspan Topdeck is hot-air welded up on the down each lap, counter section and end-joint ensuring maximum protection from any water ingress and penetration resulting in future leaks. All upstand specifications were measured in-situ and installed with minimum fuss to both the main contractor and our employees who were working against severe weather conditions in the installation process. Also worth mentioning is the Health & Safety aspect as compared to more traditional Flat roofing systems it eliminates the need for dangerous Torch-on-Felt and Hot Bituminous methods.
