£750,000 Asbestos Roof refurbisment for Waymade PLC Basildon.
As Site Services and Engineering Manager for Waymade PLC, it is my responsibility to ensure that all works carried out at our site are carried out safely, not only to meet our own exacting standards in both quality and safety, but to safeguard all those involved in working on any project.
We acquired a new site to enable us to expand our production base and found a typical 1970’s derelict building which met our needs. It had been roofed with single skin asbestos to a shallow pitch and was leaking badly.
The old roof lights were poor and very distorted and dirty and gave little, if any natural light.
When it came to a major re-roofing project of this nature, we needed the confidence of an experienced and professional roofing contractor. Belmont Roofing was recommended to us and has obviously a long-standing and professional reputation. We also wanted to employ a roofing company who could assist us in every aspect from design to completion.
We agreed a Kingspan 1000 RW composite panel and combined with new triple skin roof lights and modern single skin overlay to the side cladding, have achieved a modern day, light and attractive building which achieves a huge energy saving and leak free environment.
Belmont Roofing met and exceeded our expectations in every respect. Having been around since 1959 working for major industrial and commercial clients in carrying out work of this nature, they made our lives very much easier and finished the work on time and within budget- with the minimum of fuss and disruption.
Belmont also provide us with a comprehensive annual maintenance programme so we can be assured that the roof lights and gutters are free from dirt and debris as well as reporting back the general roof condition, which is always a valuable tool due too the unforeseeable weather conditions the county has become accustomed too of late.
Belmont Roofing is a professional and competent roofing company whom I would have no hesitation in using again for any work of this nature.
