A couple from Wakefield were so pleased with their new roofing and the standard of work carried out by DPR Roofing’s Wakefield roofers that they kindly took the time to write a letter praising them us for the work.

Mr and Mrs Chilton of Kingfisher Grove, were presented with two options for renovation work to two areas of their home’s roof – the front and side elevations. They were offered a built up felt roof or superior fibre glass roof. They opted for the Superior fibreglass roof as it came with a 20 year guarantee.

With the proposed work agreed the Wakefield roofers arrived at the property and began erecting access equipment and preparing the site for the work.

First they stripped all existing felt and timber decking boards in preparation for the decking boards required for the fibreglass roof.

Next, the roofers de-nailed the roof timbers and fit the new tounged and grooved Sterling roof decking boards to all areas. They then fitted the bespoke pre-made fibreglass trims to the roof perimeter and applied a new resin coat and fibreglass matting to all junctions.

The experienced roofing team then cleaned the roof decking of all dust and applied a laminate resin coat in conjunction with high quality fibreglass matting to bind with the pre-fitted trims.

Finally, a specially formulated coloured topcoat was applied to the entire roof area and trims to form a seamless watertight seal.

The works also included some replacing and rebidding of ridge tiles to the main roof covering and replacing some of the lead slate around the soil stack.

The letter from Mr and Mrs Chilton (opposite) read: ‘We were very pleased with the work carried out, and found your operatives very careful and methodical, taking the time to ensure that a good job was done. The final clear up was excellent.’
