Roof Refurbishment & Solar Panel Installation
On surveying the Taylor Business Park we identified a pitched asbestos cement roofed building as the best location for the proposed 50kw system. We advised our client that the asbestos cement roof sheeting was in an aged and deteriorated condition and would not last the lifetime of the 25 year Solar PV scheme. The aged roof sheeting beneath the solar install could also not be accessed for maintenance or replacement when required without disconnecting the system.
After completing a thorough survey of the roof structure Roofing Consultants Group recommended that the roof area was refurbished with a new steel cladding insulated roof build-up that would be retro fitted over the existing roof covering. This consisted of fibre insulation, a steel ash-grid spacer system and a new 0.7mm outer roof sheet. This system would also provide a 25 year guaranteed roof system to last the lifetime of the solar PV system being installed to generate and maximise the UK FiT tariff. This new roof would also provide a safe roof substrate for future maintenance.
