Renwick Road, Barking

Type: Single Skin Overclad

Roof Size: 2200m2

Date of Completion: October, 2020

Contract Description

Our client was looking to convert this extensive property into a place of worship for the incoming tenant. Our client’s budget required a cost effective yet efficient solution in order to achieve a guaranteed, watertight building. Our initial survey of the roof exposed a very fragile roof with broken asbestos sheets and multiple leaks on the box gutters. Exall was able to propose an overlay with new profiled plastisol coated steel sheets and mineral wool insulation, leaving the existing Asbestos cement sheets in-situ. In addition all box gutters were re-lined with Sika-Trocal single ply system.

Our client got in touch with Exall after thieves had attempted to break into the property via the existing fragile asbestos roof.

Exall saved the client thousands by avoiding expensive asbestos removal costs.

Cygnet Hospital, Beckton

Type: Liquid Waterproofing (Alsan 770)

Roof Size: 70m2

Date of Completion: March, 2020

Contract Description

The client contacted Exall when they experienced water ingress inside one of the hospital wards, which had originated from one of the public roof balconies. As this was a mental health hospital, there were special requests imposed on Exall from the client. Exall was able to meet all the client requests and successfully installed a new liquid waterproofing system on top of the existing defective/cracked asphalt roof. In order to make the balcony safe for existing patients, Exall was required to propose and install a safe covering that would not cause injury or harm to others. Exall proposed and installed an interlocking rubber promenade tile system, which resulted in an aesthetically pleasing and safe finish.

Contract Description

The client approached Exall with a request to replace their existing warehouse/office roof after realising multiple leaks.

Exall's proposal included removal of the existing defective EPDM system back to the insulated deck and installation of the Sika-Trocal single ply roof system. Exall was able to offer a full 15 year insurance backed warranty with the new roof system.
