Project Detail

Asbestos Garage – Trumpington.

Cambridge Roofers were asked to refurbish a series of leaking asbestos garage roofs in Trumpington by an existing customer.

The customer was offered two options of either pressed steel sheeting or a single ply EPDM flat roof but selected a single ply solution.

The asbestos was removed and disposed of to a licensed waste site and then a new timber frame was constructed over which, timber decking and a single ply membrane was installed.

One of the garages required the installation of an RSJ to support a modified and extended roof over a bike shed.

On the same estate in Trumpington, Cambridge, the recycling centre mineral felt roof was replaced along with all of it’s supporting timber carcass.
