CPD: Roof Refurbishment

Our CPD Seminar, ‘Roof Refurbishment: Choosing the Best Solution’ is approved by the RIBA CPD Providers’ Network.

This seminar seeks to equip you with a simple structural approach to understanding the flat roof refurbishment process, what to expect from a roof survey, and how to decide whether a flat roof needs stripping or an overlay. You’ll be able to apply this approach time and time again to ensure maximum longevity for a variety of roofing systems.

Why a refurbishment seminar?

We work with architects across the country supporting them in designing flat roofs ‘from the deck up’, and frequently are asked to advise on existing flat roofs. Architects often ask us:

  • How do I know whether a flat roof needs replacing?
  • What can my client do with an existing flat roof?

This seminar will answer these questions and help you and your staff become more confident about existing flat roofs and the options available.

What will we learn about Roof Refurbishment?

The new seminar sets out a step by step process to help you deal with a flat roof you come across in your work. We look what should be included in the roof survey, how the condition of the roof will influence the design and finding the right solution for your roof.

Along the way, we also cover

  1. Identify the common problems faced when refurbishing a roof and how to avoid them;
  2. How to identify and deal with interstitial condensation, a common problem with roofs built in the 1970-80s;
  3. Clarify when to specify which type of roofing system including bitumen, single ply, or liquid applied systems, outlining their benefits and looking at typical scenarios;
  4. Help you assess when you need to overlay or strip a roof, and the benefits of each approach;
  5. Best practice in roof refurbishment;
  6. Set out a checklist of what you should expect in support from manufacturers, both at a technical stage and on site;
  7. Help you comply with British Standards and Codes of Practice, and
  8. Provide sources of further information and advice.

The seminar is 60 minutes long including questions, and qualifies for double points on your CPD record.
