Specialist roofing contractor Hambro Roofing recently installed 500 square metres of Sika Sarnafil Self Adhered membrane at the new “Mossy Well” JD Wetherspoon pub in London.
The £3 million development included an extensive overhaul of the building’s existing roofs. The refurbishment comprised work on the existing pitched roofs, lead flashings, guttering and renewal of the flat roof. A section of new barrel roof was also installed in the centre of the building; featuring flat, vertical and soffit detailing.
Hambro Roofing was awarded the contract after proposing to use Sika Sarnafil single ply for the repairs.
Sika Sarnafil G410-15 FSA was specified as it was important that the new roof area looked like a traditional zinc roof covering and included décor profiling to match the surrounding roofs.
The barrel roof was also fitted with SarnaTherm insulation over a SarnaVap vapour barrier and Sikalastic Liquid Applied Membrane was used on the detailing around the guttering to achieve a waterproof finish.
Jon Hammersley, Hambro Roofing Director, explained: “The works were incredibly challenging as there was a vast amount of awkward detailing including vertical fascia and soffit works. However, the new Self Adhered membrane allowed us to work fast and make the roof look fantastic.
Sarnafil remains our preferred partner when it comes to single ply roofing because it is so reliable and gives the best results.”
Hambro Roofing completed the project working to a tight deadline, in order to get the premises open on time. The client was particularly impressed by the effectiveness of the Self Adhered solution and speed in which the works were completed.
