Following a detailed inspection of the existing roof, the following design factors should be established:

  • The required thermal performance / u-value of the roof
  • An additional loading to the existing roof structure due to the new roof build-up
  • The required compressive strength of the insulation where permanent plant or equipment is/will be located on the roof
  • The required fire resistance
  • Any acoustic requirements
  • Wind uplift calculations
  • Drainage requirements, including falls to the roof surface
  • Lightning protection requirements
  • Safety provision (collective measure, fall restraint or fall arrest)
  • Rooflights requirements

Our technical team will consider all these factors during a comprehensive SikaBit® roof survey and include appropriate solutions in their recommendations.
