DPR Roofing Barnsley were contact recently by a commercial customer following the theft of lead from the roof of their Rotherham premises. The roof structure suffered severe damage during the incident which left the premises and its contents open to damage from any rain water.

After carrying out a full inspection of the affected roof area DPR’s roofers suggested various roof repair options to the customer. Following DPR’s advice the customer opted to replace the damaged lead roof with a superior fibreglass roof which came with a 20 year guarantee.

Before DPR could install this new roofing system they had to remove all of the remnants of lead sheet and strip the roof of the mopstick rails and de-nail all of the decking. Roofers then fit new tongued and grooved 0SB3 Sterling roof decking boards in full to all areas, fit bespoke pre-made fibreglass trims to the roof perimeter and applied a new resin coat and fibreglass matting to all junctions of such. They then cleaned down the roof decking of all dust and applied a laminate resin coat in conjunction with high quality fibre glass matting to extend to bind in with the pre-fitted trims. Finally a specially formulated coloured topcoat was applied to all the roof area and trims to make a seamless watertight seal.
