Roof lights are a very good source of natural light and their passive solar gain can help reduce energy costs. However they do deteriorate and without proper maintenance they can become stained, dirty and subject to water ingress. At Vertec we are able to offer a wide range of solutions from refurbishment of existing roof lights utilising products such as Giromax Delglaze through to replacement with the industry’s leading suppliers Kingspan and Brett Martin. Whether installing roof lights in to new build projects or refurbishment works Vetec are able to offer products that take full account of thermal and acoustic requirements in addition to fire rating and structural performance. All of our works are carried out diligently by fully trained CSCS accredited operatives with health and safety being a priority due to the hazardous nature of these operations.
Maintenance & Surveys
Maintenance is a key process to prolong the life and water tightness of your building.
It is the most cost effective means of keeping the water out. It is very important to remove foreign objects from your roof and guttering so water can be disposed of in the correct means. Vertec offer a number of maintenance packages to suit whatever requirements you may need.
Vertec will always put the customer first and ensure any works carried out you are 100% satisfied with.
