Following a weekend of particularly strong winds, the occupants of a property on Coal Road in Leeds contacted DPR Roofing when they noticed a leak in their garage. DPR roofers attended the property and inspected the garage roof. They found that the roof had become storm damaged and was seriously leaking through the area where felting had blown off and boarding was damaged. To avoid further damage to the owner’s belongings DPR recommended urgent repair works.

The works involved the roofers stripping off all of the existing felt covering and removing all the damaged boarding. The roof was then board in a Sterling roof board system and felt in a high performance/fibre glass based polyester base felts with green mineral edgings. The felt was laid by pour and roll.

To finish the roofers applied a solar reflective compound to the completed base felts. This is essential in keeping the heat from causing damage.
