Project Summary

+

Anderton Gables successfully won the FCHO tender to survey their Oldham properties. Anderton Gables were instructed to assess the existing condition of roofs to circa 50 No. 3-4 storey blocks of houses and flats, and report on the necessary remedial works. AG also provided Structural Assessments to look into balconies and external stairways to some of the blocks within the housing stock.

The inspections reported on the structural integrity and adequacy of fixings that form the existing roof, and commented on the ability of the existing roof to support alternative roof coverings if required.

The inspections covered the condition of all aspects of the roof, such as:

• General roof covering conditions
• Cladding fixings
• Rainwater goods
• Roof penetrations
• Roof insulation
• Roof void inspection
