IRM Roofing were contracted to carry out some industrial roofing in Banbury at the Banbury Cross Retail Park. It was part of a major refurbishment programme over the entire retail park, which also included installing Plygene Gutter Liner.
With a new tenant due to take over the lease, the task was to remove the old corroding outer roof panels and replace them with new 0.7mm thick Plastisol coated, box profile metal roofing sheets, which held a long 25 year life expectancy. The inner panels and existing insulation remained in place.
The Banbury industrial roofing works needed to be completed within a two week time frame in order to allow other trades to continue the internal works, so we allocated a highly experienced four man team to ensure all went to plan.
