Saving for a rainy day
The Peter Cox Lincoln team recently produced a ‘flawless’ result for a client when it fitted a water proof course to an empty retail unit in Great Yarmouth.
Surveyor James Hurn said: “When we inspected the premises we found that an area of flat roof had been leaking and caused wet rot to the ply lining, so much so the Bitumen felt roofing was visible through the ply.”
On Time for a perfect finish
The basement of the retail unit had been used as storage but the intention was that after it had been waterproofed it would be used as a staff room. On a positive note for the client, the concrete floors were perfectly sound and suitable for the intended use and we didn’t have to recommend any renewing or upgrading of the floor.
Our team installed a cementitious waterproof rendering system to the affected areas. This involved hacking off the wall plaster and preparing the walls by bush hammering.
Following mechanical preparation, all exposed surfaces were washed down to remove loose debris and made ready for the application of render. We formed a deep seal chase to wall floor junctions and then applied 35 multi-coat render approximately 18mm thick to walls and soffits. This followed the general contours of the substrate and was finished with a wood float.
James said: “This project had to be carried out to a tight schedule but our team managed to complete the work in the time required.”
Providing the kind of service you can count on
The client Project Manager Lee Marshall said: “My gratitude to all involved which achieved a flawless result. This was a particularly difficult project with a tight programme which at times looked as though it would not be completed as planned; but thanks to all involved we handed over to the client on time and left them with a magnificent new branch which everyone is delighted with.”
