On this project Norcroft Builders Sunderland were asked to replace a flat roof which had starting allowing in water in several areas.

The first stage of the project was to removed the old roof to locate the cause of the leak, this was carefully done to reveal the roofs supporting structure.

Next we assessed the damage to the roof and came to the conclusion the we needed to replace half the main timbers.

After creating a new framework we laid plywood decking and then covered with a waterproof rubber membrane to make sure the roof would be watertight. The membrane is covered by a 20 year guarantee.
