This large industrial building in Blackburn had been suffering from persistent leaks that were emanating from the failing valley gutter.
The galvanised steel gutter was heavily rusted and was in danger of becoming structurally unsound if left unchecked. Not wanting to undertake costly removal and replacement works, the client turned to Polyroof for an overlay solution.
The rust in the gutters was ground out and then treated with a rust converter. The gutter was primed with metallic primer and local reinforcements to the bolt heads and lap joints were carried out. The Elastex 15 Year System was installed to provide a fully seamless waterproofing solution. Daily operations at the company were unaffected by the works, adding further value to the decision to overlay the gutter.
