Roof Refurbishment, Reading Town Centre
The existing roof coverings had been aged beyond repair and allowing water ingress into the building, resulting in damages to the existing flat roof build up. To rectify these issues, Proteus Waterproofing installed Proteus Pro-Felt® Endura, incorporating Proteus Pro-Therm PIR insulation.
High Performance Waterproofing
The roof areas were first extended, and new concrete decks applied, adjoining the existing roof build ups. As other trades were working on the roof during the installation of the new Proteus Waterproofing roof systems and the roof refurbishments were applied in phases. To overcome awkward detailing, Proteus Pro-System® Plus was applied. As this is a cold applied liquid it meant it could be easily moulded. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor to ensure the project was completed to a high standard.
Health and Safety
Due to the building being in a busy city centre, safety is always of utmost importance, as well as minimising disruptions or suspensions to businesses. Proteus Waterproofing promote fire safe installation methods conforming to the industry lead Safe2Torch guidelines and is also certified with the highest European Fire Rating BroofT4.
