Metal roof refurbishment in the commercial/industrial sector

13:15 - 14:00

Sharmans CPD “Metal roof refurbishment: A specifier’s guide to good practice” Accredited by the CPD Standards Office.

The CPD has been developed to provide specifiers and contractors with an extensive overview of the lifecycle of a metal roof and the causes of failure. It focuses on roof sheets and the re-paint decision options available but also includes a review on rooflights and fixings. Finally, it includes a comparison of the different types of coating technology available for specifiers and contractors to choose from.

Cut edge corrosion is explored fully with reference to the Seamsil system which has been the preferred repair method of most major steel producers for over 20 years.

During the session delegates will learn

1. The key areas of roof failure.

2. The options to correct these failures at each stage of roof’s lifecycle.

3. How to recognize and evaluate micro checking (repaint decision time).

4. Objectively evaluate the performance attributes for different coating systems.
