Tarvin Primary School Roof

'Tarvin Primary School is soon to undergo another major scheme of works which will see the majority of its roof coverings replaced.

Having been subject to numerous years of persistent leaks, the governors were determined not to permit the ongoing patch repair work the school roof had been subject to by Cheshire West and Chester Council any longer. Whilst any major works to the school are delivered by the local authority, the school is required to pick up the bill for what are considered to be more minor maintenance works. Having twice been advised that repairs would only amount to a cost that the school were liable to fund, the governors set about proving that Tarvin's roof should not languish some 35 places down the list of schools which require more significant works.

To do so, the governors sourced expert opinion to categorically determine the true condition of the waterproof membrane. Having presented their findings to the Council, the school found itself within the top 6 of the Council's major school roof projects for 2016 and were swiftly informed that a new roof covering with improved insulation and rooflights would be delivered to all of the classrooms this coming summer. In addition, the now redundant timber clad tank rooms will be removed in their entirety so changing the landscape of the main school building forever.

The works are imminently to commence over the Whit break and will take until the end of the summer holidays to complete. The roofs of the hall and kitchen, which are in better condition than the rest, are not being addressed in 2016 but are currently top of the Council's 'to-do' list for 2017. All being well, we will have a fully re-roofed school in the not too distant future which will be fully guaranteed for the next 20 years.'
