"In the UK the incidence of roof failures has been unacceptably high but there is no need for this. With correct procedures in place throughout the survey, design and installation phases we are determined to make our client's roof problems a thing of the past"

 

ABOUT

HAL have been providing professional roofing services to commercial, industrial and public sector organisations since 2001

Although new roof installations are carried out by the company the real area of expertise is in maintenance, repair, refurbishment and renewal of existing roof systems

There is as much re-roofing required in the UK as there is new roofing. The design of re-roofing specifications should follow the same principles as new work, but with added complications arising from the need to adapt, re-use or overlay existing materials, or to strip and replace the existing roof specification

We carry out free, no obligation, surveys to confirm existing conditions, pursue client focused design to formulate proposals and utilize highly trained site operatives to ensure quality installations

SURVEY

Where an isolated leak or two are the problem a repair solution should be investigated and pursued where appropriate. However whatever the scale of the problem thorough investigation and design principles must still be followed to achieve the best solution. Too often roof repairs are carried out poorly with little or no planning and these are rarely successful.

 An inspection is necessary to determine the limiting factors which will influence the design and selection of systems. The inspection must take into account the condition of supports, the roof deck, any insulation and the external waterproofing.

DESIGN

Re-roofing work should be carried out to the same design criteria as new work. Cutting corners in the design of re-roofing specifications to achieve short term cost savings is not our philosophy. Better to phase work in line with clients budget requirements and realize long term success.

The following design factors must be fully considered:

  • Thermal Performance

  • Condensation Analysis

  • Falls and Drainage

  • Wind Attachment

  • Structural Movement

  • Waterproofing Performance

INSTALLATION

Site work should be designed and organised to minimize its impact on the clients operations during installation. Pre-start meetings must be organised to discuss in detail the interaction of roofing works with the clients operations and operatives and any interaction with visitors and members of the public. A site plan will be produced showing work areas, storage areas and traffic routes. A health and safety plan must be formulated including Risk Assessment, Method Statement and COSHH data.

Only highly trained operatives will be employed. To each project, whatever the size, a Contract Manager will be assigned to act as the clients point of contact and through whom all instruction will be distributed to installers. Weekly site inspections will be carried out to ensure quality of ongoing operations and a final inspection will be arranged where, together with the client, the installation will be confirmed as excellent.
