This large scale North East roofing project required a complete rubber re-roof at Durham County Council’s headquarters in Durham City.
The existing roof covering was made of traditional felt which was around 15 years old. Having had many roof repairs, it was definitely past it’s life span and was in much need of replacement and rectification.
For this Durham roofing project, DVC Roofing began by stripping off the existing felt right down to the timber decking, renewing any defective timber deck throughout the project.
The finished product of this flat rubber roof covering was extremely successful. The Firestone EPDM rubber roofing provided a watertight and durable roofing solution for this client.
We are very pleased with how this roofing project turned out. To browse some additional images of this commercial project, please take a look at the gallery below.
We then covered new deck with 1 layer of torch on Vapour Control Layer (VCL), further adhering 120 mm of tissue faced insulation board directly to the vapour control layer.
The final step was to waterproof the roof. In order to do this, the waterproofing consisted of laying Firestone EPDM single Ply incorporating all necessary perimeters and field ties.
