Here is a domestic flat roofing project involving a sagging Dormer roof that The Flat Roof Recovery Company recently carried out at a house in the South of England.
The Dormer roof in question had recently had new uPVC windows fitted to it. Over the course of a few months, the homeowner noticed that the ceilings in her sons’ bedroom were beginning to crack, on further investigation they noticed that the Dormer roof had started to sag. We were called in to establish the cause of the sagging. We removed the uPVC fascia boards and trims etc and were astonished to find that the main support beam had been almost cut through to accommodate the new uPVC windows (Images 1 & 2).
We propped the ceiling up in the boys’ bedroom and set about replacing the main support beam (Images 3 & 4) While we were there the homeowner had us fully refurbish the flat roof using the Sealoflex Waterproofing System (Images 5 & 6). Another satisfied customer
