This recent project was to install a GRP Fibreglass flat roof for the RSPCA shop in Bridlington, East Yorkshire. We were initially contacted at our call centre and the phone call was followed up with a site visit where we were shown around the property and told the areas where they believed were potentially leaking. We then undertook our standard survey, including photos and measurements of the exisiting roof so we could generate an accurate quote for the customer. Once completed, the quote was emailed out to the client and we waited for confirmation of a go ahead.
Once we received confirmation, work planned in to start within 2-3 weeks and next the scaffolding was arranged and installed with a safety handrail and protection of corrugated asbestos sheets on the roof adjacent to the roof we would be working on. The exisiting old roof was cleaned by an outside contractor of all debris including avian carcasses and droppings prior to work commencing. Next we cleared the exisiting roof of all old trims and loose materials before we set about making the roof watertight again. On the roof structure where two drainage pipes which were a potential failure point, we navigated around this problem by creating a watertight GRP box to ensure no leaks would occur. Next the roof was covered in a heavy polythene sheet, before we over boarded the existing roof with tongue & groove oriented strand board (OSB), then the Topseal GRP trims were fitted to assist in the directional flow of water.
The whole structure was then coated in GRP fibreglass using a base resin, 450gm per square metre matting before being finished in Anthracite Grey topcoat to give it an amazing final look. Once a final inspection had taken place, the scaffold was struck and all we left behind was a happy customer who kindly left us this great review on Trustpilot... "So pleased with our new roof…We had excellent service from Peter Dodds Roofing from their prompt inspection of our roof to provide a quote through to the completion of the project. We have used them before so they were our first choice for this new roof. It looks fantastic!"
