Firewall Case Study

Firewalls and parapet walls built pre 1960 were normally solid built and installed without a DPC course, This allows water to descend down through the wall after prolonged spells of wet weather, This causes major damp issues to internal walls and decoration, Re-rendering of these walls with waterproofing additives are the normal way forward but can often lead to complete re-building of the walls due to the work involved in removing the rendering.

Other alternatives are to apply sealants over the walls these only last about a year and rarely solve the problem, We at MB ROOFING have come up with our own cost and less mess efective soultion, We make good to defective areas of rendering replacing lead flashing if required, we then apply a bitumen priming coat over the top and side of walls then apply a Layer of high performance elasticated Anderson charcoal mineral capping felt over wall, this is bonded to the wall by use of hot torch and once attached will form a fully water tight and attractive DPC covering that will last for years to come. We have been using system for 12 years, some surveyors and local councils have started to use our system, below are some images of our capping jobs and more can be found in our galleries.
