Parapet wall and flat roof before and after

 

Using a liquid roofing system we can encapsulate the parapet walls with ease

 

Take this old asphalt roof in Wembley, the asphalt has sagged and cracked away from the parapet wall

 

Cracking is evident and the ceiling below shows water-damage.

 

The brick parapet wall is  solid construction but the flat roof is built on timber and will settle over time, the asphalt will melt in the summer and go brittle in the winter, with the thermal movement the  cracking occurs.

 

So after cleaning of the roof taped patches are applied to the cracks before the new roofing system is installed to the roof.

 

 

On this roof we are using the GacoRoof a silicon-based liquid roofing materials from the USA . GacoRoof is very flexible and can withstand   the movement described above.

 

The other interesting factor to all of this is the color of the finished roofing materials GacoRoof  has a white finish and reflects the sun’s heat stopping the  old roof from melting
