Synertec, Bristol

A second unit refurbishment for this company to provide a 30 year guarantee resulted in a stunning high quality finish.

This large industrial unit in Bristol was the second refurbishment for document control company Synertec. Our teams had already completed an earlier refurbishment at their Warrington base, and they were extremely pleased with the results, so much so we were called back to carry out similar work at their Bristol unit.

The unit required a full refurbishment and respray of the metal roof cladding and our 30 year roof coating system was applied to the 2600m2 roof. Furthermore, the company were looking to invest in solar panels to the roof, so we were able to offer them a quote for this whilst on site.

On this roof cladding refurbishment project, a drone survey helped us to quickly identify areas of concern on the roof and guttering without the need for access and safety equipment. This meant that our team were able to put together a thorough report and provide a fast quotation for our customer.

The initial inspection on this project confirmed that that roof cladding was showing signs of deterioration and required cut edge corrosion treatment and re-coating. The roof lights and gutters were also in need of refurbishment and were part of our final proposal.

For the roof coating, our team installed one our newest systems from our Alltimes Coatings paint portfolio: Advantage Graphene. This paint system is part of the Advantage portfolio, known and trusted for its results on metal roof cladding and its reliability.

Advantage Graphene was developed specifically to target corrosion and rust on metal roofs. As Graphene, which is stronger than steel, forms an almost completely impenetrable barrier, it is almost impossible for water and debris of even the smallest fragment to bypass the graphene. The result is a lightweight, UV resistant coating for ultimate building protection.

The Advantage Graphene system is backed by a 30–year guarantee, which gives you complete assurance in the longevity of your roof refurbishment.

The rooflights were in need of replacing on this roof. Whilst refurbishment and repair are preferential, we knew replacing the rooflights was vital for safety, cleanliness, and clarity so on this project all the rooflights were replaced.

The guttering at the unit was blocked by debris, which was preventing the water from draining effectively from the roof and risking a back log of water damage and accompanying roof cladding problems.

There was also evidence of corrosion that if left could worsen over time. To solve this, we re-lined the guttering using the WeatherFOLD system which comes with a 25-year guarantee. Once debris had been cleared and the WeatherFOLD system had been installed the water could once again flow smoothly and away from the roof.

Whilst on site we were able to quote for solar panels, taking some details from Synertec of their current energy usage we were able to offer a system to include over 500 x 380w panels, invertors, power optimisers and management system.

Our work at Synertec was extensive which resulted in a high quality, clean, polished, and professional façade finish for Synertec’s large industrial unit that matched their long-standing reputation, with a final appearance that both our team and our client can be proud of.

The combined long term guarantees and our excellent workmanship has provided a refurbished roof that not only looks new, will last for decades but is also ready to accept solar panels to save on energy costs if installed on the newly finished roof.
