The project required a suitable robust, waterproof and long lasting covering for the new concrete roof terraces. The material also had to be in keeping with aesthetic of the Estate and its architectural significance. Mastic asphalt was selected as the suitable material for this project. The terrace area requiring asphalting was 200m2
The following works took place to the South West Wing and the South East Wing:
Applying three coats of IKO Permaphalt mastic asphalt laid on IKO pro sheathing felt underlay to existing structural falls. Applying two coats of skirting and solid asphalt double angle fillet all on and including IKO High Bond primer. Applying two coats of Corline Spirit Solar Reflective paint to total asphalt finishes to edge details.
The project is covered by a 20 year IKO Materials and Workmanship guarantee, and the confidence of a proven product laid by skilled trained operatives who had completed a four year apprenticeship at Hackney College
