Sika Liquid Plastics Decothane system has been specified for roof refurbishment works at the prestigious Kensington Hilton Hotel. The task was to refurbish an existing substrate that had been in place for over 30 years, which had failed and was causing leaks into the building below. The project required the chippings from the original asphalt to be removed in preparation for the installation of the liquid system.
When all of the preparation was complete, the Sika Liquid Plastics waterproofing system was put in place across the 2,000sq m roofing area, allowing a zero flame, noiseless installation, as well as providing the client with a 15-year all encompassing guarantee in respect of materials and workmanship.
Keith Marzetti of Roofing contractors Tower Asphalt, who were appointed to carry out the works, commented "All existing leaks have been resolved, and the client has expressed their satisfaction as to the lack of complaints, especially from guests, while the work was in progress in fact there were none at all".
