During September and October 2020 we carried out an over-roofing to a warehouse/office roof in Worthing, West Sussex.
The work was carried out for a client we had worked for previously roof and was next door to a roof we over-roofed two years ago.
The 2 no. old roof vents were removed and replaced with translucent rooflights to let additional natural light into the factory.
New single skin plastisol coated steel sheeting was fixed onto new spacer purlins that were fitted over the old roof.
New 200mm thickness fibreglass insulation was laid between the 2 no. roofs to help regulate the temperature within the building.
The roof was finished off with new purpose manufactured contrasting coloured flashings.
The gutters were a major problem and as they adjoined next doors building we blocked them off at the end of our client’s section. Extended the roof sheets outside the building and fitted new half-round PVC gutters to the outside. In addition, new down-pipes were fitted which discharged the water into the existing drains.
