A Victorian home in Leeds was saved from internal wet rot and brought into the 21st century when Leeds roofers DPR installed a new fibreglass roof on the property.

After an initial inspection at the property on St Andrews Avenue in Morley, DPR found water was leaking into the property at various points and causing severe internal damage. This was found to be caused by the seriously dilapidated roof as well as some poor repair and pointing work carried out by a previous roofing contractor in Leeds.

DPR offered the property owner a number of options that would stop the leak and make the roof watertight, including the simple installation of felt roofing with a 5 year guarantee. But understandably she instead opted for the superior fibreglass roof covering which comes with a 20 year guarantee.

Once given the go ahead, DPR’s Leeds roofers returned ready to install the new fibreglass roof and got to work stripping all the existing felt and lead.

As new specialist decking boards have to be fitted for the fibreglass system to work and be fully guaranteed the team began removing the old timber decking boards and de-nailing all the roof timbers before fitting the new tongued and grooved Sterling decking boards.

The roofers then began fitting the bespoke fibreglass trims to the roof perimeter; applying a new resin coat and fibreglass matting to all junctions in the process.

Next they cleaned the entire roof decking of all dust and applied a laminate resin coat in conjunction with high quality fibreglass matting to bind in with the pre-fitted trims.

Finally, to make a seamless watertight seal the team applied the specially formulated coloured topcoat to the entire roof and trims.

New fibreglass roofs from DPR carry a twenty year guarantee but have a life expectancy of fifty years from fitment.
