Alumasc Protects Sheltered Housing Roofs in Birmingham

The new Alumasc protected roof at California House in Birmingham

A new, fully integrated Alumasc Euroroof Caltech roof waterproofing system has significantly increased the operational life of California House, a 10-storey, 42-flat retirement/sheltered housing complex in Bartley Green, Birmingham.

Alumasc and local contractor Brindley Asphalt were chosen to provide an effective long term solution on the 405m2 roof area of California House.

After suitable preparation, the contractor laid a Euroroof vapour barrier providing immediate protection for the fully occupied residence. A fully engineered Derbifoam thermal insulation scheme was then laid, the internal RWO locations were fully refurbished with the Euroroof Refurb Pro outlets, and the Euroroof Caltech waterproofing system was installed in a totally Flame Free and “cold applied” manner.

The perimeter parapet details were fully encapsulated with the Euroroof Caltech waterproofing system and finished with Alumasc Skyline Aluminium PPC capping. The installation of defined walkways, finished in the Euroroof Caltech Aggregated wear course, completed the total engineered solution to the entire roof covering.

Acivico Project Manager Glenn Jones managed the works on behalf of California House owners Birmingham City Council, Places Directorate, and commented: “The quality of work on site and the attention to detail was of a very high standard”.
