Asbestos Roof Repair

Muntons are the leading name in supplying malt and malted ingredients to the food and drink industry. In this, their 100th year of operation, we were contracted to provide a much needed repair and facelift to their pitched asbestos roof.  Any work involving asbestos, requires the utmost level of safety management and preparation, something we pride ourselves on as industrial spraying contractors.   

The existing roof is pitched on either side, and owing to some low capacity guttering, has suffered water ingress from the roof into the laboratory below. 

Working with Asbestos

The asbestos roof surface had to be cleaned in line with HSE guidelines. We  used pressure washers to ensure that all lichen, dirt and other contamination was completely removed, ensuring that all gutters and downpipes were re-directed, enabling waste water to be collected in asbestos filter containers.

We also inspected all the roof panels for damage. Any cracked sheets were over-sheeted with new GRP roof sheets and primed for coating. Where whole panel replacement wasn’t necessary, we treated small areas of damage with a special asbestos roof coating, containing fibreglass mesh.

Once preparation was complete, we applied HD Sharman Delcote asbestos roof coating in line with bespoke specification provided by HD Sharman. We used the technique of airless spray application to ensure uniformity throughout.  

Installing a Man-Safe Line

In addition to our repair and coatings work, we had identified that existing access to the roof was difficult, so we proposed and carried out the installation of a ‘man- safe’ line in the form of a 50-metre fall restraint wall system to the gable wall adjacent to the roof and gutter.

What our customers say…

Ed Stimpson – Tesla Engineering

The two guys did a fantastic job and we’re very pleased with the new look of the building.

They were both very polite and professional, both worked safe on site in the MEWP and cordoned off the working at height areas as the moved across the building, I’d welcome them back any time to work with us again.

It’s nice to have contractors onsite that are happy in their work with a great eye for detail that deliver their best finish possible.

Simon Vince – Partnerships for Renewables

Professional, friendly and very helpful company and guys to deal with. We bought an old industrial unit with an asbestos roof with internal guttering system that are prone to leaking – the advice and specialist solutions Cladspray provided were not only cost effective but very practical and have extended the useful life of the roof at least another 20 years – excellent company, service and support I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them!
