PermaRoof strengthens Scottish presence with project completion

PERMAROOF Commercial has completed a project in East Lothian on a roof originally built in the 1970s.

Using a total of 250 sqm of the PermaRoof 500 liquid roofing solution across four separate roofs, as well as the RubberGard EPDM, the PermaRoof commercial team advised Edinburgh-based installers, Tait and Mapp, throughout the project.

The P500 system was chosen for its ‘fast-acting’ weather resistance and roll-on application making it ideal for complicated roofs, the firm explained.

Sunny Lotay, national commercial manager of PermaRoof Commercial, said, “We’ve been gradually extending our presence in Scotland over the past year and this project has been a great foothold for us to demonstrate our expertise and ability there. We’ve already had multiple leads generated from the results we’ve been able to share. We’re sure this upward trajectory will continue to rise and are looking forward to upcoming work planned in Scotland.

“This job was a textbook fix. Everything ran as smoothly as it could. We’ve known the client for a long time and are always happy to help whenever they come across even a minor issue. When we first visited the project, we carried out all the relevant core testing and site surveys and continued to be on hand throughout installation to offer our full technical support where needed.”

Originally built in the 1970s, the roof had weathered and degraded to a critical point wherein it would not have made it through the winter without quick attention as there were multiple issues across the whole roof, which could have led to failure, PermaRoof added.

David Tait, owner of Tait and Mapp, said, “The PermaRoof Commercial team was a great help on this project. Being able to draw on their experience with the products at a moment’s notice ensured that there were minimal delays or issues to overcome during the installation. We’re looking forward to working with them again soon.”
