In order to cover the top of the walls around the house we had to have a special aluminium parapet capping fabricated. This capping covers the top and allows the water to run off onto the roof or down the outside of the timber and aquapanel cladding.
The capping was formed by Speedline Engineering in Limerick who were very good in producing the profiles and they were powdercoated in a matching RAL7016 colour that is the same as the windows and doors in the house.
All the corners around the perimeter of the roof and junctions where the capping meets the timber cladding have to be cut and shaped by hand … by yours truly. Once completed we’ll have a fully weather-tight and sealed house .. we hope!!
