Can you confirm whether (in order to meet building regs) lead flashing is required over the top of the up stands? I noticed in a video you used the term ‘self terminate’? Also, should the ‘fleece’ be cut into the wall as you would normally see with lead flashing?
7 years ago we bought a 3 storey house in Pimlico with the intention of retiring there sometime around 2014. One of the attractions of the property was that the entire roof was a roof garden of some 45.1 square metres. We did the place up in order to rent it, which included installing a new GRP roof and new lead flashings. We then put timber decking over this as the walking surface of the roof garden.
Having viewed most of your videos on your YouTube channel, I’m wondering if you cover the Portsmouth area for a small flat roof covering? I’m planning a 7m x 3m extension utilising a warm roof construction I think. The roof will also have a 3m x 1m roof light in it.
This old flat roof in Islington N1 was an old Asphalt roof, the old decking on he roof had sunk into the asphalt in some places in other places it had sunk because of the lack of solar reflective paint, mainly the roof was leaking because of the badly made flashing’s to the party walls.
First we clean the old asphalt roof then we work on the old asphalt up-stands you can see we have replaced them with wood and straitened them out this will make the new flat roof look better but also make it easier for us to apply the SD650 liquid roofing system.
Stripping the old system can work out expensive not only to the property owner but to the enviroment as the materials will all go to land fill when dumped. In the video I show you how we clean the top surface of an old asphalt roof and start the process of capping the old roof with one of the new liquid roofing systems the new SD650 roofing system from 3m.
