Tesco Express Kidderminster, Buried Waterproof System
The Tesco store in Kidderminster once saw life as a bank, and a nightclub before becoming a key part of the local community. Unfortunately, the asphalt deck had become embrittled and after testing by Westwood’s, it was discovered that underlying water beneath the asphalt was resulting in blisters. The asphalt had to a large extent lost its elasticity and the 40mm product was set for removal to be replaced by a Westwood’s fully fleeced system.
The upper deck provided staff parking for up to 6 cars and had become a bit of a storage area. The store below was suffering from leaks within the main store and stockroom area causing damage to decorations and leading to potential damaged stock and third-party claims. After the removal of 26 tonnes of asphalt, the revealed screed was incredibly damp measuring over 6 % on the Tramex meter.
The 3 drain outlets serving the deck were completely saturated and the supporting surround had turned into a mushy paste. Water could be seen travelling down the outside of the pipe… read the full case study which covers a buried waterproof system.
