Howard Evans Roofing were asked to renew the failed fibreglass covered steps to a busy communal area. The issues with the steps had been causing major leaks and closures to 2 of the aisles in the Iceland Frozen foods store.
PREP WORK INVOLVED
Our site team stripped all the old coatings, 3 in total. We then cut chases to the brickwork and primed all surfaces using a high bond primer.
We then applied 2 coats of mastic asphalt to all upstands and treads, using a recreational asphalt. Due to heavy foot traffic these steps were finished with a heritage grey solar reflective paint and road carpet treads to ensure longevity and give an aesthetically pleasing finish.
PRODUCT INFO MASTIC ASPHALT
Mastic asphalt is an ideal building material for a vast range of construction applications, both new build and refurbishment projects, where a smooth, seamless, durable surface is required. It offers effective waterproofing for roofing and tanking and acts as tough working surface in flooring and paving.
MASTIC ASPHALT THE SUSTAINABLE, COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTION
Mastic asphalt is well known for being tough, durable and longlasting, but what is perhaps less well known is that it is one of the most sustainable and greenest building materials currently available.
Mastic asphalt has one further advantage over other types of waterproof membrane – it is carbon neutral – a massive bonus for any building owner anxious to show their green credentials and, when it has reached the end of its useful life it can be recycled or used as roof screed, minimising the impact on the environment.
Over ten years ago the mastic asphalt sector became the first industry in the world to achieve the CarbonZero standard. Mastic asphalt is green, recyclable and an A+ performance every time.
