New School Roof Installation

Roof System

This new school roof installation project entailed installing a new Sarnafil roof system to the entire area of the school’s roof. Over the years the existing roof had become damaged with areas degrading which resulted in many leaks into the school. The school required a completley new roof. The works involved removing the existing chippings, laying new insulation and a top layer of Sarnafil membrane. An addition to this was the removal of any redundant roof lights and the replacement of existing roof lights that needed to remain. This included forming new upstands to suit the roof system prior to their installation. The project started in the summer holidays and ran into term time. This meant that we had to be very sensitive to the client’s needs during this period but were able to continue the works by building a good relationship with the site manager and the school’s staff.

Atrium Glass Roof Light

Part way through the project, the school asked if we could also replace the glazing in their large atrium glass roof light. The room below had suffered from leaks after rainfall and being too hot in during the summer. Waller Glazing upgraded the single glazed glass with a new framework and double glazed units which have weatherproofed the room below as well as reflect the hot sun in the summer.

The whole project was completed on time and the school was very pleased with the way the project was carried out. The roof is now water tight and is being prepared to have rows of solar panels attached which will provide a future source of energy.
