  2. 2. www.acsap-roofing.comComplete over-roof – Church roof projectAbout The Project:There were existing original green mineral feltcoverings over fibre board onto a structural steel deckwhich had reached the end of their servicable life.ACSAP Roofing used an overlay of a three layer highperformance torch on system with ventilators torestore the main roof.In addition, the fifties design had gutters constructedfrom concrete integral with the eaves. These werecarefully cut off; the eaves were then re-constructedto provide an attractive modern fascia and largecapacity gutter detail.

These were dealt with inRhepanol FK, and new skylight domesmounted on a new kerb with purposemade access platforms over them alongthe very narrow rear roof.

A main challenge wasproviding for the retention of the original coveringsto provide uninterrupted working whilst thebuilding was in continued use, and ensuring thatany dampness was able to escape subsequently; aswell as transforming the badly deterioratedconcrete gutters to a smart new system and theprovision of new skylights to the concrete pointswhilst ensuring there was proper and safe accessfor maintenance.

  6. 6. www.acsap-roofing.comComplete over-roof – Church roof project“I first met Andy and Chris Smith (ACSAP ROOFING) on a felted church roof in Coventry. Ultimately, they wereappointed to carry out the work of renewing the felted finish. This was carried out to a highly professionalstandard, bearing in mind modern Health and Safety requirements, and a competitively priced contract. Workwas also completed to time and on the budget..Subsequently, when our slated roof at home, a converted Victorian School, required renewing, we were pleasedto talk to Andy and Chris, once more. we were pleased to appoint them and work proceeded steadily, despitesome mixed weather, to a very satisfactory conclusion. Besides the slating being part reused and part completelynew, we were able to insulate the existing roof, and the whole project has proved to be highly beneficial to ourcomfort and use of the property.Throughout these projects, we have always been confident of ACSAP ROOFINGS capabilities and thestraightforward way in which business has been conducted. We are impressed and very happy with theintegrity, honesty, and clear way in which we have been dealt with by Andy and Chris Smith.”JIM SORRELL Dip Arch (Birm.) BSc. RIBA CHARTERED ARCHITECT
