- Type: Cold Applied Liquid Roofing
Kellogg’s Head Office overlooks Old Trafford Cricket Stadium in Manchester.
Having previously completed Phases 1 & 2, Liquid Roofing Ltd were awarded Phase 3 of the re-roofing of the building.
The original roof of the Kellogg’s building is inverted or upside down. This means the waterproof membrane is applied directly to the roof deck with the insulation being loose laid on top, with ballast holding it in place.
The hidden waterproof membrane (in this instance asphalt) had failed but Kellogg’s were keen to keep the roof inverted as the insulation and ballast protect the waterproof membrane from foot traffic.
Liquid Roofing Ltd removed the existing ballast and set aside for re-use. Sika Liquid Plastics liquid applied membrane was then applied directly to the failed asphalt and new insulation was installed held in place with the original ballast.
The roof is covered by a comprehensive guarantee covering labour and materials for 25 years.
The works were executed on time and to a very high quality, efficiently, courteously and safely. The attitude of the site staff has been commented on in very favourable terms by the building occupiers and Veolia site contact, very much reflecting the attitude of the Head Office staff and front end works.
LRL have completed numerous projects for us, all were delivered on time, safely and in a competent manner.
LRL assisted greatly in the identification of problems and designing a solution to provide us with a new roof to last many years. The work required working around some very critical areas where school children were in close proximity.
