Waterproofing conference will bring together a range of professionals

The second international structural waterproofing conference will focus on the themes of design, specification and best practice

The Property Care Association said its upcoming structural waterproofing conference will appeal to a broad range of professions and industries.

The PCA represents the structural waterproofing sector and has committed to drive best practice. Recently, the association introduced a new standard in collaboration with the NHBC. Chapter 5.4 aims to deliver improvements in waterproofing works and was introduced following the revelation claims on basements had cost close to £21m since 2005.

The conference, which will be the second international event dedicated to the topic, will take place on 6 July at The Slate, University of Warwick.

The agenda has been developed with housebuilding, construction, civil and architectural professionals in mind.

Following a three-session format, it will focus on themes surrounding design, specification and best practice. Topics to be discussed will also include concrete in waterproofing, hydrogeology and soil mechanics as well as structural design and ground gas management.

Following on from success

Steve Hodgson, Chief Executive of the Property Care Association (PCA), said: “Last year’s inaugural structural waterproofing conference was a great success across industry, providing a useful opportunity to broaden knowledge and skills within this important area.

“Based on that success we have been able to further enhance the event for 2017, widening its scope and scale with industry-leading speakers covering a range of subjects.”

8 Easy Ways to Repair or Refurbish Your Asbestos Roof

8 Easy Ways to Repair or Refurbish Your Asbestos Roof

Repairing your leaking asbestos roof has never been more straightforward. Here's eight easy ways to fix your deteriorating bolts and washers, safely seal asbestos sheets and fix those leaky cracks in your roof.
1) Asbestos Crack Repair Tape

2) Asbestos Roof Hole Repair

3) Bolt Hole Repairs

4) Sealing General Roof Sheet Damage

5) Asbestos Single Sheet Replacement

6) Refurbish With a Specialist Coating

7) Over Cladding

8) Repairing Roof Lights

1) Using Crack Repair Tape

Where cracks are obvious, crack repair tape is a fast way to stop leaks in asbestos cement roofing – but not all tapes are the same. Although it’s tempting to resort to commonplace products, many are bitumen based, meaning they're affected by UV light and can easily crack in the cold.

Our solution is a rubber-based tape. It's UV stable, maintains its flexibility, and never sets hard – essential on roofs with cracks, where repair materials require the same high degree of movement as the roof itself. This cost-effective solution is highly effective and straightforward, making it first on our list, and an essential tool in any asbestos crack repair. You can get everything you need to seal that crack with our easy to apply repair kit.

Need a simple and reliable repair solution? We also recommend using the fibre reinforced instant repair StopGap.

2) Asbestos Roof Hole Repair

In emergencies, you need a product that works quickly. Again, we’d urge caution with some of the well-known products that claim to work in water and cold. To some extent they do, but when the integrity and weatherproofing of your premises is at stake, you really need a longer-lasting solution. We’re sure you would prefer not to keep sending someone back onto your roof to ‘repair the repair’. That's why we've created the DIY Asbestos Roof Hole Repair Kit, with everything you need and a step by step photo guide that makes it easy.

3) Bolt-hole Repairs

Bolt holes in your asbestos roof will eventually enlarge and the washer will corrode due to exposure to UV, making it ineffective. You can repair this by replacing the washer and bolt, or using a flexible tape or coating to seal the area. Where replacing the washer and bolt isn’t an option due to difficult access to the roof, the flexibility of crack repair tape is ideal. You can also apply an emergency repair coating to seal the bolt hole.

4) Sealing general roof sheet damage + cracks

Asbestos sheets will eventually deteriorate and that can mean leaks and water damage. This can lead to cracks. Nobody wants to watch their building and possessions being destroyed every rainfall. Many sealants don't have the durability for long term repair, particularly as frequent temperature changes cause the building to move. So even after repair, many building owners end up back on the roof.

That's why we only use UV stable, flexible, and highly durable repair solutions that can stand the test of time. You get a watertight repair that can stop your leak and seal your roof against the worst of the rain.

5) Asbestos Single Sheet Replacement

The traditional way is to remove the old sheet and replace with a new one. You can also use glass-reinforced plastic (fibreglass) GRP Oversheet, applied externally. GRP gives a guaranteed replacement lasting up to 50 years without deteriorating. It’s also completely waterproof, so you avoid the ongoing expense of treating it. GRP comes in various colours, and because it’s cold applied, you avoid the Health & Safety risks of heat treatment.

6) Refurbish with a specialist Coating

Coatings provide a permanent and highly effective waterproofing solution in an easy two step process. All loose asbestos fibres and lichen are encapsulated and bound with a Primer. Then a coating topcoat gives long-lasting protection and a completely weatherproof, UV and dirt-resistant roof that’s guaranteed to last for many years. When combined, the two components also encapsulate asbestos fibres and reduce the risk of their release, a comforting thought for all those spending time under the roof.

We’re the UK distributor for a wide range of coatings, meeting the demand for your every budget, desired longevity, climactic restriction and many other factors. We're all about choice, and our experts can provide everything from emergency patch repair to a long-term waterproofing solutions.

7) Over Cladding

When repairing asbestos cement roof damage with sealants or localised repairs isn’t possible, you could consider overcladding, by putting another roof (normally metal) on top of the old roof. This is a proven technique for repairing asbestos roofs and the next best method after coating. In most circumstances you’ll need to comply with current building regulations and add insulation to help reduce heating costs.

8) Repairing Roof Lights

Roof lights will eventually deteriorate, crack, leak, build up mildew and turn dark, so less natural light gets in. Repairing with tape is possible, but not ideal, and will restrict light further. Replacing the roof light is preferred, but working on roof lights is risky, especially if they’re in asbestos roofs.

There’s another solution, involving cleaning and coating the skylights with a tough, clear coating. This will improve the light tremendously and is far cheaper than new skylights. It’s also much less disruptive to your business and avoids having holes in your roof during the work.

Stop your roof lights from leaking with the liquid rubber SuperArmour.

We believe in good honest choices, and providing customers with independent advice about the options open to them. We've helped countless industrial building owners find a solution tailored to their needs, from emergency patch repair to full roof refurbishment, as well as catering for asbestos gutters and internal fibre encapsulation.

ROOFING COMPANIES FINED FOR WORKER’S FALL

ROOFING COMPANIES FINED FOR WORKER’S FALL

Two East Midlands roofing companies have been fined after a member of staff fell through a skylight.

The man suffered life-changing injuries from the nine-metre fall in December 2015 and required surgery to install metal rods in his back.

Coventry Magistrates Court heard how ACG Roofing Ltd had been subcontracted by JDB Industrial Roofing Ltd to complete re-cladding work on the fragile roof. At the time of the incident, no guard rails were being used.

A Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigation found that principal contractor JDB Industrial Roofing failed to have effective management systems in place to control the risk associated with working at height and on fragile roofing.

The business, of Brooklands Court, Kettering, pleaded guilty of breaching the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, has been fined £112,000 and ordered to pay costs of £2,216.

ACG Roofing Ltd of High Street, Wellingborough, also pleaded guilty of breaching the Work at Height Regulations 2005. It was fined £35,000 and ordered to pay costs of £1,721.

HSE inspector Edward Fryer said: "This incident could have been fatal; the worker has suffered life changing injuries due to the company failing to properly plan and supervise work at height.

"This case highlights the importance of proper planning, supervision and implementation of work at height especially on fragile roofing."

What is Storm Stella, when will it hit the UK?

 

What is Storm Stella, when will it hit the UK?

KILLER blizzard Storm Stella blanketed the northeast of the US in snow and hammered its shores with 60mph winds.

The snowstorm, which left at least five people dead, is now set to journey across the Atlantic on its way to the UK.

A man in New York appears to be helping to free a yellow taxi that has become stuck

Here’s everything you need to know about the storm before it arrives.

What is Storm Stella?

Storm Stella is a powerful snow blizzard that battered the northeast coast of the USA and plunged it into a state of emergency.

Roughly 50 million people were under a blizzard warning as 60mph winds swept through.

The tail end of the storm is due to hit our shores this weekend – but its force will have significantly weakened.

Snow has only been predicted for some parts of Scotland.

The powerful blast buried northeastern states including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia and Massachussetts under snow.

At its most intense it caused the death of Ava Doris, 16, who lost control of her car.

The blizzard also claimed the lives of two elderly men in Milwaukee who were shovelling snow on Monday.

A man in Massachusetts was killed in his truck after it was hit by a train in poor visibility conditions.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh warns residents as Storm Stella blankets Mass

An elderly man in Connecticut died after he was struck by a snowplough, NBC reported.

Stella also caused school closures and the cancellations of 6800 flights as people were urged to stay indoors.

Temperatures were predicted to dip as low as -4C when people were warned of the storm.

Americans in US states such as New York and New Jersey were told to prepare for two feet of the white stuff.

That prediction was later downgraded to between 4 - 8 inches.

1600 snowploughs were deployed to clear the New York streets.

The porn website Pornhub sent snow ploughs to three states to help clear up snow.

Roughly 210,000 people in the mid-west and northeast experienced power outages.

The conditions caused German Chancellor Angela Merkel to postpone a trip to Washington to meet President Trump.

 
New Yorkers in Central Park took the opportunity to play out in the snow

When will Storm Stella arrive in the UK?

The tail end of Storm Stella is set to whip our shores this weekend.

The arrival will come after Brits have enjoyed the hottest day of the year so far on Wednesday.

Temperatures rocketed to 18C with people taking the opportunity to head to the beach or go for a picnic.

The weather was also bright and cheerful yesterday as Stella showed no signs of arriving.

Brits have woken up to sunny weather with a slight chill in the air this morning as the remnants of Storm Stella prepare to take effect.

Spring temperatures may remain as parts of the country feel mild this weekend but the wind is expected to make it feel colder.

Friday will gradually see wind and rain affecting most of the country by the end of the day.

The weekend will continue to be unsettled with rain coming in from the west.

Parts of the weekend will continue to see brighter spells but parts of Scotland are likely to experience snow.

Storms are given their own names in the UK so Stella would be renamed if its effect here was significant enough.

Steven Keates from the Met Office said: "From late Thursday till Sunday it will turn wet and windy across the country and this will last thorough the weekend.

"Wind will strengthen to gale force of up to 60mph on Friday and Saturday in the North West England and Wales."

Temperatures are expected to plunge by Friday and will struggle to reach 9C.

The worst affected areas for gales are predicted to be coastlines in Southern England and the North West.

 
The "Fearless Girl" statue in New York also had to brave Storm Stella's snow and 60mph winds

Where will Storm Stella make landfall?

Scotland and the north are first in the firing line when Storm Stella's remnants sweep through this weekend.

Forecaster Oli Claydon said: "The benign conditions are certainly going to turn as things become more unsettled at the end of the week.

"It is all part of the same system which is currently causing stormy weather in the US, although it won't be anywhere near as vigorous when it reaches the UK.

"But we are going to see a regime change as this low pressure system moves across the Atlantic.

"There will be some rain around on Wednesday although most places will see a dry day; on Thursday the north will get some rain.

"From Friday into the weekend it will turn wet and windy across the country and this will last thorough the weekend."

Severn Trent Water customers encouraged to report water leaks

Severn Trent Water customers encouraged to report water leaks

SEVERN Trent Water (STW) customers are being encouraged to report water leaks which can develop in the winter.

STW has a network of pipes that would stretch around the world, and so customers often spot the leaks before the firm.

Malcolm Whittaker, from STW who has been finding and fixing leaks in the region for more than 30 years, said: "We take leakage very seriously, fixing on average 121 leaks per day and we want to bring leakage levels down as much as possible so that water isn’t wasted.

"This is particularly important when it’s cold as leaks can turn to ice and become very dangerous to the public.

"Engineers like me work day and night finding and fixing leaks and bursts, however we recognise that there may be some leaks that are still out there that we don’t know about.

“So we need our customers help.

"In many cases, we don’t know where leaks are until our customers report them. Please don’t assume we already know about the burst or leak, even if it is a large one: particularly in rural areas where it’s possible for leaks to run for days without being noticed."

Leaks or bursts are repaired on a priority basis, with those affecting customers’ water supply being fixed first.

Customers can check whether leaks have already been reported by visiting the STW website, and click on the check my area map section.

If a leak hasn't been reported call the STW's leakline number, free on most landlines. on 0800 783 4444 you can also report it here in your area on their website https://www.stwater.co.uk/in-my-area/report-a-problem/ or feel free to contact us.

6 tips to help you tackle damp problems in your home

Damp plaster is unpleasant to live with, especially at this time of year, and can affect the whole room, but what can you do about it?

Here are six tips for dealing with the problem:

1. Check the outside of your home. Penetrating damp happens when there's a problem with the fabric of the building. While the damp usually moves horizontally from the outside in, it can appear on ceilings (see below) as well as walls.

Defective or missing flashing on the roof, defective or blocked guttering, defective pointing and brickwork, and cracked or missing render typically cause penetrating damp, although there may be other causes. Sometimes what appears to be damp may actually be condensation.

2. If the lower part of a wall is damp, it's probably rising damp (water coming up from the ground), in which case the solution may be a new damp-proof course, installed by a specialist damp company (other damp-proofing solutions are available).

Once the bricks are damp, the moisture usually transfers to the plaster inside - tell-tale signs include dark patches and blistering/bubbling paint, but it's not always obvious that the plaster is damp. Damp plaster should be removed to expose the bricks underneath - letting them dry out is a good idea, but it can take a very long time.

3. If you can't wait, get a plasterer to do a waterproof render and then replaster, so there's a barrier between the moisture in the bricks and the new plaster. This is a messy process and if you get a specialist damp company to do it, it may be expensive, but they should provide a guarantee. Most plasterers won't give you a guarantee, but should charge a lot less.

The key is to get an experienced and reputable plasterer who knows what they're doing and uses the right products. If the waterproof render isn't done correctly, the damp will come back through the plaster, which is disastrous.

4. Sometimes the damp-proof course is simply being prevented from doing its job. You should be able to see it along your home's exterior walls - look for a row of small holes a little way up from the ground.

In old properties, slate was used as the original damp-proof course and is sometimes still in place. If the level of your garden, patio or path is higher than the damp-proof course, for example, it won't work properly.

5. Perhaps you've noticed damp on a chimney breast, or where the chimney breast would have originally been? This could be because the chimney stack needs repairs, the chimney pot isn't capped, or the chimney breast isn't ventilated properly indoors.

When a fireplace opening is sealed up, a vent should be fitted, but isn't always (it's a relatively straightforward DIY job to fit one), and vents can get blocked with dust and debris. A defective chimney or roof can cause damp on the ceilings below, especially if there's no roofing felt, which is sometimes the case in old properties.

6. The quickest and easiest DIY way to deal with damp plaster is to cover it with anti-damp paint and then repaint the topcoat. Anti-damp paint is usually really thick, so apply it with a brush (to get lots on) and then use a mini foam roller to get a good, flat finish. Leave it to dry thoroughly - see the manufacturer's instructions - and apply a second coat if recommended.

Anti-damp paint works well for a while, but is rarely able to hold back damp long term.

How are roofing costs estimated?

General Tips

The roof is one of the biggest investments you'll make in your home. Find out how the costs of installation of a new roof and repairs on existing roofs are determined.

Size: Roofers will calculate the exact size and dimensions of your roof to best estimate the amount of materials needed.

Slope of your roof: The steeper your roof is, the more materials will be needed to cover it.

Materials: The price for materials will depend on what kind of roofing materials you choose to have installed.

Roof access: If your roof is difficult to access, or if it is multiple stories, contractors may charge more.

Difficulty level: If your project is complex - for example, if you have chimneys, skylights and vents that roofers need to work around - the higher the cost could be.

Location: Where you live could determine your estimate.

Trader tip: scaffolding

If extensive work is taking place on a property above one storey high then it’s likely that scaffolding will be required.

Scaffolding is expensive, and takes hours to put up and take down. This will increase the price of quotes.
