SIG’s time lapse video shows a recording of the replacement of the flat roof at Waitrose's distribution centre in Aylesford, Kent. The 10,200m2 roof was completely stripped off and replaced in a 12-week fast-track contract period, without any disruption to the round-the-clock operations of the distribution centre. Created for the supermarket’s Estates Department, this time lapse video allows you to see the whole roof replacement in just 3 minutes.
What am I seeing?
You can see the roofing contractors, Genco Construction Services, stripping off the existing bituminous roofing material and insulation, and applying a new self-adhesive vapour barrier, insulation and the IKO Spectraplan SG TPE fleece - backed single ply roofing membrane.
The metal deck also needed replacing in certain areas, and this was taken up and replaced as required, avoiding any unnecessary waste. This video also shows detail of the roof build-up, which includes a self-adhesive vapour barrier and fully adhered insulation and membrane.
