Problems to skirting often occur when there is a breakdown around the mastic asphalt. For example sand and cement mortar cracking then lifting pulling out of the prepared chase, allowing water to creep behind the asphalt and eventually ingress.
Coping stones to roofs often breakdown, this will also cause problems if no damp course is in place
Impact damage/ cracks will also leak over a period of time and are often caused by other trades working on roofs, dropping sharp objects or tools.
All these problems can be solved easily by one of the following methods:
• Cut down the damaged area
• Prepare chase
• Prime wall
•1st coat asphalt with tower tucked into chase
•Top coat with wooden float making good to joints
•Install angle fillet to base of skirting and horizontal
•Point chase and solar point.
“I found Heritage Asphalt by accident on the Internet. It was a video about asphalting steps. I called Ryun who was very professional and had a great deal of experience and knowledge. The job was booked in straightaway and a team set about taking off old asphalt rebuilding and repairing the big Victorian staircase and then asphalting. The finish was quite amazing, these guys are very skillful at what they do and My husband and I were delighted. They were a professional team really hard working and highly recommend them.” Customer in London

“Ryan and team arrived, late afternoon, as agreed, to review balcony, approx. 25m2, 3 sides fed by tiled roof and one long length hand-rail. Problem, 3 leaks in different places from 10yr old asphalt roof. We discussed the problem and Ryun suggested a choice of two plan of action. We found his quotation very acceptable. This work was completed as agreed, in only a few days, to our complete satisfaction. Eight months after completion, I can now report that after a very wet winter, the roof is in a sound state. An excellent job done.” Customer in Cambridge
