Background

The Problem

At times the school was in attendance, we worked alongside the main contractor and the school to ensure that works were carried out in accordance with their plans in a safe manner.

The Solution

IcoPal's Intelligent Membrane Association (IMA) reinforced bituminous 'Profiles' membrane was chosen to overlay the existing mastic asphalt roof covering because of it’s high quality and proven track record whilst minimising disruption to the school below.

These businesses have access to a special range of Icopal high performance waterproofing products and guarantees that are not available to any other contractor.
