rooftop resin slab project
Waiting for a window of opportunity in the weather to complete a rooftop resin slab one of our last projects of the year.
A fairly unusual one for us as it was a concrete forecourt area which was also the roof slab to a large cellar below. The customer needed a solution to the tricky situation of a good solid roof but not very attractive surface. In addition this roof top needed an impermeable surface as there was a small amount of seepage through to the brand newly refurbished area below.
The customer had been researching their options on the internet and with local companies. Removal and excavation was not an option so our client knew they had to look at resurfacing. Tarmac was a consideration but in keeping with the area they wanted something more hard wearing, attractive and with a choice of colours.
Our client had seen works completed on the waterfront at Littlehampton.
This regeneration programme had specified a resilient, low maintenance surfacing option which would stand up the harsh seafront elements. The chosen product was a Resin Bonded System.
We have now been able to resurface the unsightly concrete forecourt ( as it originally was) and at the same time it will seal the roof and prevent the ingress of water to the newly refurbished area.
The choice of special media for this dual surface (not only a roof but also a parking area) dictated a hardwearing and road specification finish and now we have completed this rooftop resin slab.
This rooftop resin slab is now an anti slip, protective, decorative, textured surface – available in a wide range of natural and recycled products. The base requirements are simple, solid and monolithic such as concrete or tarmac (imprinted concrete too). Our resin bonded stone is designed to use existing surfaces. Whilst new concrete and tarmac are also options curing times and cost can be prohibitive. Completed in a day is a possible on most residential projects meaning no mess and no disruption.
