Eldon Primary School in North London is a building that has had inherent problems with various leaks over the last 5 years.

During 2011 we were contracted by VolkerFitzpatrick to carry out a full survey of the three different types of roof on site and carry out all remedial works to ensure that the problems that were on going were stopped.

Envocare Maintenance found problems on the Kalzip roof, traditional slate roof and the glass covered walkway ranging from poor design to unplanned maintenance issues.

We firstly carried out water tests to the areas to ascertain where exactly the problems were. After this we replaced numerous slates that were damaged, removed all lead hips and re-weathered, new lead weathering around all penetrations, install new drip flashing to eaves to avoid capillary action, cleaned all gutters and applied paint repairs, installed mesh details over gutters to stop build-up of balls, leaves etc. which was causing gutters to overflow, remedial works to damaged Kalzip sheets and glass covered walkway. All these works were carried out during school holidays.
