It had then been overlaid with EPDM Rubber. The EPDM Rubber had started to deteriorate and pull away from the perimeter edge causing water ingress.
DVC stripped off the Rubber EPDM down to the traditional existing felt.
We then prepared the felt by cutting out any blisters and sealing in with torch on felt, in preparation to lay IKO Polimar Liquid waterproofing to achieve a 10 year warranty for the client.
IKO Polimar Liquid systems are extremely versatile, completely cold applied and can be specified to match the longevity of your project through a range of build-up options. Polimar is part of IKO’s cold applied portfolio. Cold applied systems meet the demand for specifications offering higher resistance to fire and spread of flames.
We were delighted with the outcome of this project. If you would like to find out more about what we can do for your roof repairs, or find out more about any of our products, contact us today.
The benefit of IKO Liquid Roofing systems is we did not have to strip the existing felt and update the insulation, as this would have more than doubled the cost of the works.
