Kenbrook House, Kensington
Kenbrook House, a private residential block in Kensington required some refurbishment works to the roof terrace as the existing waterproofing had failed, allowing water ingress into the commercial units below. As the client requested an inverted system, Cold Melt® a no odour, cold applied waterproofing system was installed.
High Performance Waterproofing
As the concrete surface formed a suitable substrate to accept an overlay, Cold Melt® was applied, extending the life of the roof by a further twenty years. Cold Melt® is a seamless waterproofing membrane which meant increasing the roof level could be avoided. Once the waterproofing had cured promenade tiles was applied, any areas that was left exposed Cold Melt® UV Top Coat was applied. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor to ensure the project was completed to a high standard.
Health & Safety

Cold Melt® is fast to install which meant disruptions were kept to a minimum for homeowners and members of the public.
