Re-sheet and Stripping

If your existing building has asbestos cement roof sheeting on it you may want to consider stripping and re-sheeting your roof.

The reasons people consider this are:

  • First and foremost, Health and Safety.  The safe removal of asbestos roofing means less long term risk to the health of you & your employees.
  • Improved looks – both internally and externally.
  • New Rooflights – at this time it may be worthwhile to consider how much natural light is getting into the building?  Translucent rooflight panels could be retrospectively fitted to increase the amount of natural light into your workspace, therefore reducing both your energy bills and your carbon footprint.
  • Thermal Performance – depending on your choice of material used to re-sheet your roof, insulation could possibly be added that would improve your building’s thermal performance, which would help to reduce your heating bills.

Over sheeting

This operation is the least disruptive method of solving roofing issues and does not disturb your existing roof. Instead a new spacer bar is installed between you old roof and your new roof.  Your chosen roofing materials are then installed on the new bar. This then creates a cavity between the two roofing panels, which allows for insulation to be considered. This may increase the thermal performance of your building. Translucent panels can also be considered to increase the amount of natural daylight into your building.

The main benefits to this type of installation are:

  • Minimal operational disruption – due to the existing roof remaining in place.
  • Cost effective, No associated costs for the removal of old roofing.
  • Improved looks and improved thermal performance. Ultimately, this operation would improve the value of your property and reduce your energy costs.
