Moy Materials Ltd Stand No. Q1150

Moy Materials claims it has a sturdy plan that will ensure flat roofing projects don't leak on completion.

These are:

1. Correct Specifications and Detailing

The first step is in detailing a specification for waterproofing that is fit for purpose. Moy Materials work closely with specifiers at an early stage of the design process in order to ensure  best-fit waterproofing solutions.

2. Analysis of Systems Proposed

There are a number of waterproofing systems on the market and it can be difficult for specifiers to make informed decisions at an early stage in the design process so Moy takes that responsibility.

3. Build Phase Management

It is during this phase that the managers of the project must pay close attention to the difficult balance of achieving both budget/targets and good construction standards.

4. Completion Phase

Between  completion of waterproofing works and the installation of the finishing layers, a test must be carried out to ensure  the waterproofing layers are fully functional.

Electrical resistivity testing apparatus can pinpoint even the smallest pinholes in a waterproofing membrane and can be less time consuming, non-destructive and ultimately provide a better solution against Flood Testing which will incur negative points under BREEAM criteria.

5. Post Completion Phase

Very few buildings could be said to be truly maintenance free. Proper maintenance is extremely important and particular attention should be drawn to the issue of rainwater outlets, which must be inspected annually to ensure they are running free and are clear of blockages.
