New Roofing and Waterproofing Guide for Schools and Academies

IKO PLC has released a new Roofing and Waterproofing Guide for Schools and Academies. Aimed at head teachers, facilities managers and local education departments, it highlights the tell-tale signs of a failing roof, and includes guidelines on independent advice, design, installation, inspection and guarantees. Information on funding is also covered.

Ashley Chivers, Director of IKO’s Specification Division, explains: ‘Maintaining and improving roofs to ensure they are waterproof, energy efficient and secure helps protect one of a school’s most valuable assets – its buildings. Without regular inspection and maintenance, long-term problems such as water ingress can result in damage to the fabric of a building, with significant associated costs and hazards. Our new Guide covers everything schools and academies need to know, and addresses the questions they need to ask when selecting the right designs, contractors and products.’

IKO PLC is a leading UK manufacturer of roofing, waterproofing and insulation solutions, with extensive experience in helping schools with repairs, refurbishment, maintenance, extension and new build projects. IKO can also transform school roofs into outdoor play or learning areas, particularly useful in urban education facilities, where space is at a premium.
