Leaking roof on asbestos testing laboratory
Client: Roof Tech Ltd Auckland
Problem: Leaking roof in asbestos testing laboratory
Inside the building is a laboratory which specialises in asbestos testing, so replacing with a new roof wasn’t an option, as the laboratory would have needed to be shut down for 2 weeks minimum. On the roof were lots of vents and air-conditioning units, so re-installing would be very costly and time-consuming. With Liquid Rubber you can leave all the vents and air-conditioning units fixed.
- Liquid Rubber
- Surface of the roof: 800m2
- Substrate: Thin
- Products used: 40x 20L Liquid Rubber, 40x 15L Smoothcoat, 12x rolls of Seam Tape
- Equipment used: Graco Mark5, brush, roller
The roof was cleaned with Cohe Quick Clean and then water blasted. The following day a seamless membrane waterproof sealant was sprayed on. Four days later we sprayed 2 layers of our Smooth Coat (top coat).
By using Liquid Rubber we were able to halve the price of re-roofing plus give the client a 20-year warranty on the coating.
The customer is very happy with the results and Roof Tech has been asked to do more projects for the customer along with regular maintenance on the existing roofs.
