The Challenge:

The challenge on this project was to upgrade and provide a watertight roof for the Client to two warehouses both with asbestos cement roofs in Frimley.

The warehouses are around 30 years old and have existing fragile asbestos cement roofs which were at the end of their life expectancy unless treated in the very near future.

The GRP roof lights were also at the end of their life expectancy and there was a requirement to replace all of these whilst carrying out the refurbishment of the roof.

The Solution:

It was the Client’s requirement to have a guaranteed roof on completion which also included for a guarantee to the gutters.

The Contract Administrator on this project was Jones Laing LaSalle and they specified to use the Giromax Girosil Roof Coating which is Giromax’s new flagship coating which is a one coat system.

Whilst the works were progressing Giromax representatives carried out two site visits and signed off the works at the end of the project.

The roof lights were replaced with new Brett Martin roof lights and the gutters were coated with the Giromax Girosil gutter coating system.

The Result:

The Client was left with a 20 year manufacturer’s guarantee on completion of the works. The gutters were left with a 10 year guarantee on completion. This was at a fraction of the cost of over sheeting or replacement of the roofs.
