3. Roof Refurbishment: Choosing the Best Solution

Roof Refurbishment CPD PosterEarlier this year we developed a seminar for specifiers with a particular focus on the challenge of flat roof refurbishment. Working with architects across the country we often come across existing flat roofs and advise on how they can be inspected and effectively refurbished or replaced, be they small commercial or domestic projects, schools and educational facilities or complex projects like the London Business School.

This seminar will take you through the process of what to do when you come across an existing flat roof and is suitable for specifiers of all levels of experience.
