To meet the requirements, the licensed contractor specified the Cold Melt® seamless waterproofing system to extend the lifespan of the roof. Following the removal of the existing ballast, the Cold Melt® system was applied along with a new 50mm insulation layer. To ensure no water ingress in the future, particular attention was made to areas of detailing around vent pipes and upstands, prior to the original ballast being reinstated.
