Commercial Roofing

Here at The Roof Doctor, we are keen to offer our customers a variety of choice. We are proud to offer a wide range of unique systems including systems for gutter refurbishment, cut edge corrosion, metal encapsulation, roof lights and asbestos roofs and walls.

GUTTER REFURBISHMENT SYSTEM

Gutters are usually the most neglected aspect of any building. Especially in autumn and winter months a build up of twigs, leaves and debris causes gutters to back up and stop flowing. Over time if these issues are not addressed, gutters will start to leak causing health and safety issues.

Euro Polymers Guttercote

Guttercote is a fast curing two part gutter system which has been designed to be applied wet on wet. This system cures in 30 minutes and can be applied directly to rusted gutters without priming. Some systems cannot be applied at minus temperatures (When leaking gutters are more of a problem), this isn’t a problem for Guttercote which can be applied all year round, at minus temperature and instantly cures leaks. Guttercote also benefits from 10, 15 and 20 year guarantees and warranties.

Benefits:

  • Can be applied directly to rusted metal
  • Cures in 30 minutes
  • Cures under water
  • Can be applied all year round
  • Available with guarantees up to 20 years
  • Available in Light Grey, Medium Grey, Dark Grey as standard (other colours available upon request)
  • Supplied with pre-weighed catalyst for ease on site 
  • Available in 1kg, 2.5kg, 5kg & 15kg sizes 

CUT-EDGE CORROSION SYSTEM

Cut Edge Corrosion is a common issue on metal roofs. When metal roof and wall sheets are installed, the edge of the sheet is often left exposed. Over time due to weather conditions, the sheet edge begins to rust, this can cause water ingress to the building. 

Euro Polymers CEC-Cote

CEC-Cote is a rapid curing, two part cut edge corrosion system which can be applied wet on wet. There is minimal preparation required with this system and when treated CEC-Cote stops the rusting process. It can be installed all year round and when reinforced with Polymat, it can crack bridge up to 5mm. The system is available with guarantees up to 20 years and is available in a wide range of colours.

Benefits:

  • Applied in one coat 
  • Minimal preparation required
  • Can be applied directly to rusted metal
  • Cures in 30 minutes
  • Can be applied all year round
  • Available with gurantees up to 20 years
  • Available in Light Grey, Medium Grey, Dark Grey and White as standard (other colours available upon request)
  • Supplied with pre-weighed catalyst for ease on site 
  • Available in 2.5kg & 5kg sizes

ROOF LIGHT TREATMENT

Over time roof lights can degrade due to weathering, this causes them to become brittle and crack. This process is an inevitable part of the  life span of a commercial building. Sometimes these roof lights can be replaced, however this isn’t always a practical solution. Coating roof lights is a cheap and easy way to extend the life span. 

Euro Polymers Clearcote

Clearcote is a liquid applied, UV stable, clear coating that has been specifically designed for use on roof glazing. It is formulated using fast drying, solvented, synthetic resins that do not attack plastics. Clearcote systems protect roof glazing from further infra red and ultra violet damage and have shatterproof qualities. Clearcote is provided with guarantees of up to 15 years.

Benefits:

  • Flexible, cold applied, rapid and simple application
  • Overcoat in less than 1 hour in ventilated conditions
  • Units can be opened and re-sealed with no surface skinning inside the tin
  • Resistant to industrial and environmental pollution
  • Clear finish (not opaque)
  • Anti-shatter properties
  • Can be reinforced to repair cracks

Metal Encapsulation System

Over time metal roofs and walls are subjected to weathering which causes plastisol coatings to fade or flake. Historically these sheets would be replaced with new metal roof or wall sheets, the environmental impact of this is greater than encapsulation. It’s also more cost and time effective to encapsulate metal rather than replacing it. 

Euro Polymers Eurocote ME

Eurocote ME is specifically designed for use on external metal cladding applications. It is formulated using synthetic resins and fast drying solvents ensuring the optimum bond to difficult substrates. Eurocote ME is available in a wide range of colours, offering limitless design opportunities for refurbishment projects. The system can be spray or roller applied, subject to the project requirements. Eurocote ME is provided with guarantees of up to 20 years.

Benefits:

  • Saves the cost of completely re-cladding
  • Flexible, cold applied, rapid & simple application
  • Overcoat in about 1 hour in ventilated conditions
  • No hot works insurance required
  • Tins can be opened and re-sealed with no surface skinning inside the can
  • Resistant to industrial and environmental pollution
  • Spray, roller or brush application options

Asbestos Encapsulation Systems

Asbestos has been in construction since 1940’s, with an estimated 5.3 million tonnes of asbestos shipped to the UK in its years of use. Asbestos was used for its thermal and heat resistant properties. It has been used in Asbestos cement sheets for roofs and walls to provide a durable and long lasting waterproofing solution. Over time the asbestos sheets have degraded due to weathering and moss/lichen build up. This causes cracks and fractures in the sheet, which in turn causes water ingress. The waste water is laden with hazardous asbestos fibres, which are a huge health and safety issue. There are a number of options to consider when treating asbestos cement sheets including; removal and replacement, overcladding and encapsulation. 

Euro Polymers Eurocote AE

Eurocote AE systems encapsulate asbestos cement sheets, the system can be roller or spray applied. When installed Eurocote AE drives into the sheet using nano technology to prevent any further degradation. Euro Polymers can support with free surveys (on projects over 100m2) to discuss options for your roof. This system is provided with warranties and guarantees of up to 20 years. Specialist cleaning systems are also available from Euro Polymers that meet the stringent HSE regulation requirements. 

Benefits:

  • Cost effective

  • Can be roller or spray applied

  • Available with guarantees up to 20 years

  • Available in any RAL colour including Light Grey, Medium Grey and Dark Grey 

  • 5L & 15L tins available
