Up On The Roof – ‘Wet Pour’

Well we picked a fine week to commence the ‘wet pour’ works on the play deck roof, it was freezing, a layer of snow covered the surface and the wind chill made it feel even colder.

No ‘wet pour’ could be installed in these conditions, but we were able to get all of the rubber crumb and EPDM on to the roof.

This was my first ‘lift plan’, risk assessment and method statement for working with a crane and it was drafted by the crane company and approved by the main contractor and everything went to plan. So the knowledge from the SMSTS course was put to good use.

We just need to wait now for the weather to turn warmer and we can get started on installing nearly 2,000m2 of EPDM surfacing to the play deck roof.

So far we have only installed a small amount of ‘Wet Pour’ EPDM surfacing to a courtyard area, but it does look pretty good.
