About the project:

On the site of a former conservative social club, the development at Vernon Street in Ashton-Under-Lyne will be a modern three storey building, consisting of 24 affordable apartments. This building will be designed as a modern reference to the historic cotton mills of the local area and will consist solely of one-bedroom properties. There will also be 19 parking spaces with four electric charging points at the front of the property. This will create a stylish and attractive residential environment with good quality affordable homes.


Our role in the project:


As leading roofing experts here at Enviroply Roofing, we will be installing a high quality Alumasc roofing system.


The first stage of this roofing system will involve installing the vapour control layer. For this will be using Alumasc Polyethylene AVCL which will be loosely laid in preparation for mechanical fixing. The overlaps of this waterproof membrane will be jointed with Alumasc butyl tape.


Following the installation of the vapour control layer we will then be installing the insulation layer. For this we will be installing two layers of 200mm Alumasc FF PIR Insulation, to create the right depth for the project. This is a rigid foam insulation that is faced with low emissivity composite foil to maximimise thermal efficiency and performance. This will be mechanically fixed into position.


To complete the roofing system, we will be installing a waterproof membrane. For this we will be using the Alkorplan F PVC Single-Ply membrane by Alumasc in a lead grey colour. This is a high-performance option, reinforced with woven polyester, that will be mechanically fastened into position.
