Commercial Flat Roofing Newcastle Mercedes Garage SIKA Liquid Plastics
DVC ROOFING was delighted to win the contract for the full flat roof refurbishment for Commercial Flat roofing Newcastle on Mercedes.
The client had been working closely with DVC Roofing and SIKA Liquid Plastics to establish a cost-effective solution to the many problems that the Mercedes of Newcastle had been experiencing with their flat roofs.
To minimise disruption and health and safety risk, a cold-applied liquid roofing system was required for the project to enable encapsulation of the
extensive area and detailing while avoiding the need for hot works and overcoming the need for total strip off. The client also stipulated that the chosen system should have a 20-year service life as part of their building maintenance planning and asset optimisation strategy. To address all of these requirements, Sika Liquid Plastics’ SIKA 625 20-year system was specified.
Following a site audit and condition survey of the roof carried out by DVC Roofing and Sika Liquid Plastics’ Area Technical Manager, a full specification was developed to meet the
project requirements. Sika Liquid Plastics’ Quality Assured (QA) contractor, DVC Roofing, was appointed to carry out the 3500m2 roof refurbishment,
The DVC Roofing team then installed the SIKA 625 system in slate grey, completely encapsulating the whole flat roof areas to eliminate the risk of leaks from an area
of the roof that had previously proved problematic.
Darren Van Cliff from DVC Roofing said, “The risk of rather expensive cars sitting below did have me a little worried; however, our team took great care in not coating these, “Thank the lord.” We were limited in working in high winds, and with awkward scaffolding, access conditions made this a challenging project. The use of Sika Liquid Plastics’ cold-applied 625 liquid system made it possible to manage the access restrictions.
This roof was completed in May 2018 and now holds a full 20 years QA warranty direct from Sika Liquid Plastics.
