About the project:

The Kearsley Development on Manchester Road is the transformation of the former Kearsley Social Club site. This will see the development of 24 apartments for affordable rent, delivered for Bolton at Home. This will include 5 two-bedroom and 19 one-bedroom apartments, plus car parking for 21 residents.


Our role in the project:

We are delighted to be creating a Single Ply Roofing system for this development.

We will begin by installing the vapour control layer, for which we will be using the Sarnavap 500E. This will be loosely laid across the roof deck with all side and end laps continuously sealed with Sarnavap jointing tape, in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.

On top of the vapour control layer, we will be installing Sikatherm 150mm Foil Faced PIR Insulation. This will be mechanically fixed with a staggered bond pattern.

Finally, we will be installing a Sarnafil S327-15EL Lead Grey polyester reinforced roofing membrane to complete the roof. This will be mechanically fastened into place and hot air welded at all end laps. The Sarnafil S327-15EL is a high-quality Single Ply membrane that provides maximum durability and flexibility while fully protecting any roof and property from the elements.
