Following a call from a representative of Weston Green School who advised us that they had a damp problem in one of their offices, an appointment was made for one of our qualified Property Care Association (PCA) damp and timber surveys to carry out a thorough survey to find the cause of the damp problem. Because of the location of the damp it was decided to gain access onto the roof to inspect the roof valley for defects, It was found that there were defective lead soakers in the valley that were leaking and allowing rain to penetrate. An internal inspection revealed serious damage to the plasterboard of the dry lined walls and staining to the ceiling plaster. A detailed report was produced, which included images and our recommendations for all of the water damage and damp repairs, including repairing the cause, a leaking roof.
Following instructions from our clients the works were commenced by our experienced operatives who gained safe access onto the roof, removed roof slates as necessary and replaced the lead roof flashing with new code 5 lead. The roof slates were then refitted, replacing as necessary. Internal water damage repairs included removing the damp and damaged plaster board from the walls and ceiling and replacing it as necessary using new insulated board. This was then scrim taped and plaster set to a smooth finish ready for decorating.
