We offer a FREE site survey which extends from the initial survey to the preparation of a report and specification which can also include a photographic detail of roofing defects.
All roof coverings suffer from one or more of the following, aging, sunlight, movement, wear and tear, treating and coating existing roofs provide valuable extended Roof Life.
Roof Coatings & Treatment Systems offer an alternative way to waterproofing a roof as opposed to total removal and replacement of the existing roof covering. The cost is generally higher on total replacement however; other issues have to be considered, for example, business interruption, possible water ingress, and where asbestos roof sheets are concerned, the possibility of fibres being release into the air. With various Roof Coating Treatment products on offer, such as Elastomeric, Rubber, Acrylic, Bituminous, Dual Roofing are able to provide a system for a roofing project that will meet most client’s budgets and requirements.
Dual Roofing can offer a variety of High Performance Roof Coating Systems that cure into a flexible waterproof coating, free from fixings, seams, welds or joints. Roof Coatings can be applied to felt, bitumen, metal, concrete, & asbestos, and may be applied to damp surfaces prior surface water removed and will provide protection to the roof structure lasting many years before first maintenance is required and will tolerate foot traffic and withstand attack by airborne pollutants
Roof Coatings can be applied to existing roof surface prior to a thorough industrial clean and the removal of all debris; this is also inclusive of cleaning out old joint sealant and joints. The cold coating system can be applied by roller, brush or airless spray thus reducing disruption to activities within the building and eliminating fire risks. On complex roof detail such as upstands & Rooflights the coating will provide a long lasting barrier against damaging water ingress.

The wRAPs™ System preparation includes; Access scaffold, edge protection, Fall Arrest System etc, to meet Health & Safety requirements including CDM Regulations including notification to HSE.
Air monitoring is carried out with the wRAPs™ system to establish background levels of airborne asbestos fibre before work commences. All downpipes are closed off to reduce contaminated waste entering the water and an application of fungicide is used if necessary. Protrusions such as “excessive or oversized roof bolts” are cut back without damaging existing roof structure.
wRAPs™ Encapsulated cleaning is accomplished but does not affect sound substrates. The slurry produced is pumped to our wRAPs™ Filtration System labelled for disposal in accordance with Health and Safety Guidelines “Working with Asbestos” and in line with the Asbestos Regulations ACT 1987, Waste Regulations and the HSE CDM Regulations.
