About the Research
This metal roof guttering had corroded and begun leaking at the seams into the classrooms below, causing disruption to the students during lessons.
- Project Title Fibreglass Lining Solves Leaking Gutter
- Category Gutter Lining
- Location Uxbridge
The gutters were hand prepared to remove all loose corrosion and leave a clean, keyed up surface. A polyester resin primer followed by 2 layers of 600 gram chopped strand matting were applied. The matting was impregnated with polyester resin and rolled to expel all air. Once cured, a final polyester flow coat pigmented dark grey was applied to completely seal in the laminate.
The result was a completely refurbished guttering, guaranteed against further leaks for the next 10 years. The students and tutors are now able to continue their lessons uninterrupted.
