Fatra roofing systems help make the refurbishment of older buildings viable. The construction of a new building is not always the most cost-effective or even environmentally sensitive approach. The addition of new insulation reduces carbon emissions and Fatra waterproofing membranes comply with Building Regulations concerning the environment.
Fatra waterproofing systems can be used over existing felt, asphalt, single-ply or even metal roofs in some cases. The existing roofing materials can be left in place minimising both distribution to the buildings users and contributions to the landfill as it avoids stripping.
Fatra waterproofing membranes can give an existing building a thermally upgraded and waterproof roof that will last another 30 years.
Replicating Metal Roofs
Metal Standing Seam Roofs have become increasingly expensive due to the increase in insulation values and raw material prices. Fatra FF807 membrane offers the designer the opportunity to preserve the aesthetic of standing seam as it is a suitable base to install Fatra Standing Seam profiles at centres, replicating a metal standing seam roof. Fatra can provide a cost-effective solution as it imitates the visual effect of a metal roof without the inherent costs and on-site welding associated with standing seam roofing. Fatra waterproofing membrane can reduce the time required to install the roof due to the fact the finish is waterproof before the profiles are added. Fatra can also seal interfaces without the need for prefabricated sections and the system can be adapted to complicated roof shapes.
