Holsworthy Primary School’s existing pitched roof had shown signs of ingress for a while, not helped by its very low pitch angle which stood at 14º. As the appointed roofing contractor, DFR Roofing undertook a full condition survey of the area; this indicated that the main roofing tile used across the roof was not designed for its low pitch, requiring a full roofing replacement.
DFR Roofing, under the Main Contractor (WMS), stripped the existing roof tiles, and installed new Redland Regent Tudor Brown tiles, specially designed for low roof pitches. The tiles are also characterised by their high, bold profile, creating a striking and unique effect on any roof.
Part of the contract also included the removal of the existing PV panels, which were re-installed on a new rail system after completion of the roof tiling.
The roof also contained 28 Velux roof windows, which we removed and placed with new Velux Integra electrically operated units – allowing light and air into a building with just one touch of a control pad. Installed on bespoke raised kerbs, these were sealed to the roofing system using a Triflex Liquid Plastic reinforced coating.
Using the latest in roofing and window technology, the children of Holsworthy Primary School can now enjoy light, breathable classrooms, supported by a tough, aesthetically pleasing roofing system.
