Insulation and flat roof covering works

Flat roof contractors  Acclaim Contracts Ltd, carried out an extensive 18 week renewal project at Northbrooks on behalf of Harlow Council. The project involved the stripping up of the existing roof covering and the installation of a new waterproof covering, including tapered insulation to two, four storey blocks containing a total of 50 occupied flats. The works also involved remedial works to chimneys including brickwork and flaunching repairs. Prior to works commencing a photographic condition survey was undertaken of all the top floor flats to record the condition of properties prior to commencing our works.  Access scaffold was erected to the side elevation to avoid privacy issues and our compounds (one per block) were secured within heras fencing. The compounds also contained our secure storage containers, skip, scaffold access tower, hoist, debris chute, gas cage and welfare facilities. Material delivery times and skip exchanges were managed by Acclaim Contracts Ltd to reduce risk and avoided busy times of the day including school runs and lunchtimes.

Residents were kept fully informed at all stages during the insulation and flat roof covering project, and any issues were dealt with promptly and efficiently by Acclaim’s Site Foreman.

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.
