IKO Polymeric system for Goosecrof Lane housing

IKO Polymeric and DVC Roofing worked on a private housing project in Goosecrof Lane in Northallerton.

The roofing project was challenging from so many aspects. The main challenge was the client’s requirement for a pitched roof that achieves the standing seam zinc effect by using single ply.

IKO Polymeric’s technical team advised that the adhered roofing system would be the best option for this particular project as mechanical fixings would show under the membrane and negatively affect the desired look of the roof.

An adhered system would also stop the membrane flapping in windy conditions and avoid disruption to the occupiers of the private dwelling.

DVC Roofing’s installation team used tongue and groove type OSB deck which they laid on the top of the rafters. They then fitted a self-adhesive VCL (IKO System Underlay S-A Polyester Bituminous VCL) which enabled them to adhere the insulation boards on the top by using IKO Polymeric’s High Performance PU Adhesive.

To ensure stability they adhered a small proportion of the boards first and placed a heavy timber block on the top of them and repeated the same process for the rest of the roof.

They then adhered Armourplan PSG membrane on the top of the insulation boards by using IKOpro low foaming PU adhesive. They also placed the colour matching standing seams on the membrane laps – at every 480mm – and welded them to the membrane so the membrane laps were nicely covered with IKO’s patterned standing seams which gave the roof its final touch.

The extra flexibility of the IKO’s membrane allowed tight and crisp detailing on standing seams to complement the building’s aesthetically pleasing look. By paying extra attention to details, DVC Roofing’s qualified installers delivered a very neat finish matching the high standards of the client’s requirements.
