Roofing refit works for Wandsworth Housing Department

Flat roof contractors  Acclaim Contracts Ltd, carried out an extensive flat roofing refit project at Alton Estate on behalf of Wandsworth Housing Department .

The project involved the stripping up of the existing roof covering and the installation of a new waterproof covering, including tapered insulation and walkway tiles. The works also involved extensive concrete repairs and decorations to tank rooms and flues. A new, free-standing handrail and new metal doors to tank rooms were also installed together with the provision of new lightning protection.

The re-roofing of these 11 blocks of flats comprising 178 occupied properties was handed over to the London Borough of Wandsworth snag-free and 20 weeks early – half the original contracted time! To help save time, the Acclaim Contracts Team persuaded the Client to allow up to five blocks to be under scaffold at any one time.

Residents were kept fully informed at all stages during the roofing refit project and any issues were dealt with promptly and efficiently by the Acclaim Contracts site team. The local Primary School was also contacted to ensure that pupils were aware of the works and the dangers associated with busy construction sites. The Client was delighted with the early completion and by the snag-free handover.

• Bitumen Vapour Barrier – Parevapo SBS
• Tapered Insulation – Parafoam Standard
• Bitumen Underlay – Adepar JS

I am pleased to recommend Ian's team at Acclaim Contracts for roofing work. I have completed a number of successful projects with Ian and his team and found their quality of work to be excellent. With most projects being in sensitive education settings, communication with the client is critical. Ian always takes a strong personal interest in projects which helps everyone.

I was really pleased with the company. The job ran really smoothly. Nas was our main line of communication and he was very professional and helpful. The job was completed on time, and there was minimum disruption to the school despite it being such a big job.

In terms of after-service, the company have responded very promptly to any queries / snagging issues and resolved them immediately. I think the service given by Acclaim has really been good – particularly when I compare it to the experiences that colleague Heads have had having similar jobs done by different firms.
