Case study story

Details

We were commissioned by Stocks to carry out a various roof works on their warehouses in Manchester, including felting, cladding, over-cladding and skylight replacement.

Works carried out:

Before any works could begin we ensured all the required safety and edge protection was installed, ensuring a safe working environment for our operatives.
Our team then started by preparing the flat roof area around the upstanding skylight units, ready to apply underlay and green mineral touch on felt. We supplied and installed 80 sq/m of wall cladding and approx. 650 sq/m of cladding over the pitched roofs, insulating with 100mm rockwool insulation, inclusive of all ridges, verges and flashing details.
We cleared the rear gutter channel, removing sediment and loose flaky material, pressure washed and disposed of waste in red asbestos bags for legal disposal before applying the Giromax gutter refurbishment system.
We also replaced numerous skylights, both GRP and Georgian Wire, and ground out and re-pointed the gable end wall where a failed RWP had washed away the original pointing.
