Elastaseal Flat Roof Repair – Hampton by Hilton hotel

April 2019

The Elastaseal Warm Roof System has been used in the refurbishment of the roof of a new Hilton hotel in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne. The Hampton by Hilton opens its doors in March 2015 and is opposite Newcastle Central Station and within easy-walking distance of the city’s biggest local attractions.
It is housed in former commercial office space, the flat roofs of which were prone to leaks and not thermally efficient. An effective, long-term roofing solution was needed.

The ElastasealTM Warm Roof System from Tor Coatings was chosen on the basis of practicality, performance and through life cost. It provides a seamless waterproof barrier membrane and maximises the thermal efficiency of the roof. It ensures the roof remains leak free and reduces heating and energy costs.

The system was applied directly over the previous felt roof membrane, which was extremely convenient and avoided the cost of removal.

Once the roof had been prepared, TorthermTM thermal insulation boards were bonded and covered with a self-adhesive carrier membrane onto which the coating system was applied.

The protective ElastasealTM coating incorporated every detail of the roof, taking in every detail, meaning the entire roof area was fully waterproof.

The ElastasealTM system can be specified with an initial life of up to 25 years before first full maintenance. For the Hampton hotel roof, a BBA Certified 25-year system was chosen.

Tor Coatings - Flat Roof Refurbishment – Hard Rock Cafe, Edinburgh

October 2018

No. 18 George Street, Edinburgh is home to the world famous Hard Rock Café. The US restaurant chain began trading at the site in the late nineties. The upper floors of the building are used as commercial office space.

The Georgian building had flat roofs to the rear which were beset with problems. The GRP and felt membranes – designed to waterproof the roofs – had failed in a number of places over a period of years. Countless attempts to repair the roof ultimately proved ineffective and repeated water ingress became a major concern for the landlord and tenants.

Previous rectification work had been limited to localised repairs. Overall refelting had been ruled out because of the significant amount of immovable plant and pipework present. Felt patches were applied to affected areas but just as soon as one location had been treated another leak would appear somewhere else.

The client found the perfect long-term solution to the problem in the form of Elastaseal™ from Tor Coatings. The liquid roof coating system could be applied to all areas of the roof and used to encapsulate critical areas of roof mounted plant and protrusions; providing an overall waterproof membrane that could not be achieved by any other method.

The Elastaseal™ coating system is compatible with almost all other sound roofing materials so there was no need to strip out the existing roofing membranes. The coating was completed while the building remained fully operational and to the satisfaction of the landlord and tenants.

Elastaseal™ works by providing the roof with a seamless barrier membrane, that is not only 100% waterproof but also allows the roof to breathe. The flagship Elastaseal™ system delivers 25 years’ waterproof protection and its performance is certified by the British Board of Agrément (BBA).
