Lincoln Castle Academy approached Hambleside Danelaw to help them solve the problem with their old and leaky roof. With the winter months drawing closer a quick and cost effective system needed to be found that would offer a long term solution without the need to lose the use of any of the school’s facilities and preferably one that could be installed without removing existing coverings.
Covered with a variety of materials, the 3 main roofs spread out over 1800 square metres comprising Technology, Sports and Teaching blocks. Hambleside Danelaw’s Dryseal roofing system offered an instant practical lightweight solution with a high quality finish.
As Dryseal is a component based mechanically fixed system, it allowed an additional 60mm of rigid insulation board to be overlaid directly onto the existing roof providing cost effective and instant waterproof protection. Due to the unique nature of Dryseal any moisture left in the old roof would be dissipated through roof edge ventilation possible by not sealing the edges. The roof was finished in a bespoke pale blue (RAL 5024) top coat to match one of the colours of the school crest. The top coat, which provides protection from UV degradation, is usually supplied in light and dark grey as standard but can be customised to match a range of colour finishes.
