So, here’s a more succinct rundown of some of the types of commercial roofing and industrial roofing services we offer at VBS Ltd.

Asbestos overcladding

Lengthen the life of your asbestos roof with over cladding. Over cladding adds one or more additional layers on top of your existing roof. This can be used to increase the insulation in your roof, bringing your property in line with current legislation and lowering heating bills. It can also be used to reseal your roof, making it watertight again, this is a cost-effective approach with a visually appealing result.

This will also protect the existing roofing structure from the elements, preventing further damage which might lead to the entire roof needing to be replaced. An over cladding project can also be combined with replacing existing skylights or installing new ones to provide you with natural light.

Industrial roof cladding

Through years of experience we know that many buildings require substantial renovation during their lifetime. The Roof Cladding may fail or deteriorate to such an extent that extensive replacement or renewal is needed. It is not always possible to consider a roof replacement with a strip and re-sheet as when you take Into consideration the downtime of the facility it is not always a cost-effective solution.

Roof over cladding is the renovation of a facade by the addition of a new skin over the original external fabric of the building. Buildings may also require remedial and aesthetic work to make them suitable for today’s environment and regulations.

Roof Cladding has been used extensively over time, most often these are 30-50 year old buildings suffering from a combination of poor thermal performance and poor physical performance.

Over cladding of old dilapidated buildings is an excellent way to bring them up to required standards and make it look new and modern, as well as enhancing the look it will put value on the building as any costs associated with the over cladding are more than covered with the increase in value of the building.

Flat to Pitched

VBS Roofing Contractors know that ageing flat roofs can be problematic; the materials used on older roofs deteriorate under UV light or through the effects of standing water resulting in failure and leaks. Whilst flat roof membrane technology has improved considerably over the past decade, there are still many buildings suffering as a result of poor design principles and working practices at their inception. Often consistent water ingress has rendered roof structures beyond repair and insulation useless, resulting in fairly intensive refurbishment being necessary.

These old and problematic flat roofs can be transformed and revitalised with the new, innovative Flat to Pitched Roof System. With minimal disruption to occupants during installation, a Flat to Pitched Roof conversion provides an aesthetically pleasing solution to ongoing waterproofing problems.

Liquid applied roofing

Liquid applied roofing comes with many benefits that can make it a superior alternative to other roof membrane materials. This type of commercial roofing offers a seamless waterproof membrane, which is joint-free for total water resistance. Because it’s a liquid, it can be readily applied to any detail on the roofing system. It’s also a cold-applied process, which helps to eliminate the hazards and inconvenience of using hot applied systems.

Whether you’re looking for liquid roofing repair or replacement, we have a wealth of experience in applying liquid roofing to commercial properties. Our experts commercial roofing and industrial roofing contractors can install a range of liquid applied roofing systems in Polyurethane and PMMA compositions.
