The roof had previously been overlaid with an unknown liquid coating which had failed and water was leaking into the building below. The client had requested a cost-effective solution that would repair the leaking roof, resolving their problem. To provide a cost effective, long term waterproofing solution, Proteus Waterproofing specified a Proteus Pro-Felt® finish, meeting all the client’s specific requirements
High Performance Waterproofing
As the existing roof was an unknown liquid, Proteus Waterproofing carried out an adhesion test to ensure that our Proteus Pro-Felt® range was suitable for this overlay project. Due to the substrate being a liquid membrane, a self adhesive underlay was required so Proteus Pro-felt® SA underlay was specified and adhered to the existing coating, finished with Proteus Pro-Felt® Extra-Plus 5kg Mineral Capsheet which is a heavy duty capsheet. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor, to ensure the project was delivered to a high standard.
