Background

Royal-Mail04Situated on a corner plot the main post office in Chapel Street in the seaside town of Worthing, West Sussex is a 1930s built three storey neo-georgian building. To the rear, the numerous levels of existing mastic asphalt flat roofs had reached the end of their natural lifespan, and over the years water ingress had become commonplace in various locations around the site.

Challenge

Richard Soan Roofing Services had been tasked with refurbishing the roofs. Since the sorting office remained in operation throughout the contract, access to the numerous different roof areas was difficult, and along with the various refurbishment works being carried out by main contractor Quoin Contracts Limited, health and safety played an even more vital factor than usual.

Solution

Although the existing waterproofing had reached the end of its life it was in a suitable condition for overlaying, which proved valuable with the post office remaining fully operational throughout. The existing solar reflective chippings, paint surfaces and debris were all cleared off the roof and the surfaces primed ready to receive the new waterproofing. Richard Soan chose the Profiles torch-on roofing system incorporating the Profiles Vapour-Vent XL vapour control layer, Thermazone Torch-on insulation and finished with the Profiles Vent-XL underlay and Profiles XL capsheet.

The level of workmanship and attention to detail was very high and the project was completed on time following the four month long contract.
