The World we live & work in But not quite what it seems…
Over 60 years of case histories, and research studies by top authorities in a number of fields worldwide, have revealed an ever worseningcrisisand alarmingly dangerouslong-term property related trend… A number of very hazardous and costly factors related to buildings, roofs, structures and properties have been identified and warned about repeatedly – These have been increasing in severity and frequency, year by year! . DANGEROUS HAZARDS AND MAJOR LOSSES LURK IN THE MAJORITY OF ROOFS AND BUILDING!!!
BUILDING VALUE LOSS The various critical issues shown here, common to most buildings, can greatly decrease the true and sale value of a property, and lead to massive unnecessary additional future costs, distress, and disruptions to operations, damage and loss to stock, equipment etc!
FIRE DESPITE THE PRESENCE OF REGULAR FIRE CONSULTANT INSPECTIONS, COMPLIANCE CERTIFICATES, FIRE EXTINGUISHERS ETC. MOST BUILDINGS CONTAIN UNSEEN HIGH RISKS OF MAJOR FIRES AND BURNOUTS! THE NUMBER OF SEVERE BUILDING FIRES AND BURNOUTS IS INCREASING SHARPLY – THOUSANDS OF CASES GET REPORTED ANNUALY!
CORROSION Billions of Rands are being lost annually by corrosion and weathering losses and damages This badly rusted gutter could easily have collapsed and flooded out the entire factory! This was caused by SUBSTANDARD repair work – Very common in these times!
CLIP SYSTEM ROOFS BLOWN OFF! Thousands of roofs (Old and New) , being blown off in high winds ! ! !
TOXIC Severe risks to life and health, due to the widespread use of very biohazardous asbestos And which in many cases can release life threatening quantities of … As well as the widespread presence in many roofs and buildings of VERY COMBUSTIBLE insulation and other materials that burn very aggressively and spread major fires rapidly!!
Deadly hydrogen-cyanide gas!! Example - A type of polyurethane foam, very commonly found in buildings and roofs, caused the deaths of 177 miners in a Kinross mine fire! Do you have large quantities of one of these deadly products somewhere in your building or roof? Are you really sure of this?
Non compliance with health & safety legislation Most contractors do not apply the full OHS requirements
THIS HAS LEAD TO MANY DEATHS, CRIPPLING INJURIES, DAMAGES AND LOSSES ETC. OVER THE YEARS THIS COULD VERY EASILY FALL INTO THE NEXT CATEGORY OF MAJOR CONCERN!
Overlooked legal transgressions which could result in prosecution, major fines and jail sentences, for managers, owners and tenants!
QUICK-FIXES = FAST & VERY EXPENSIVE FAILURES! As we technologically advance so do the solutions needed to fully resolve these problems. A quick-fix is just that – a Quick fix. Then that Quick-fix becomes the next immediate serious and very costly problemto resolve. Problems are only resolved by in-depth investigations to get the exact root cause to that specific problem and then ensuring that the exact right solution is correctly and fully applied!
A NIGHTMARE TO SOLVE? REPAIRING AND PRESERVING ROOFS AND BUILDINGS CORRECTLY AND AFFORDABLY CAN OFTEN GET FAR, FAR MORE DIFFICULT AND FRUSTRATING THAN THE DIABOLICAL RUBIK’S CUBE!
THE PARTS OF THIS UNSOLVABLE CONUNDRUM INCLUDE: ACID RAIN AND CORROSIVE ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION NEAR EXTINCT RELIABLE SPECIALIST CONTRACTORS SEVERE NATIONAL TRADE SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE LOSS THE INDUSTRY IS NOSE-DEEP IN “CHEAP AND NASTY”, “LICK AND STICK” HARMFUL GIMMICK WATERPROOFING AND SHORT-LIVED “MAGIC REPAIR SYSTEMS AND PAINTS” MASSES OF FALSE INFORMATION, VERY LITTLE RELIABLE INFO OUT OF CONTROL LABOUR AND MATERIAL COST INCREASES VERY TIGHT NATIONAL ECONOMY AND MAINTENANCE BUDGETS ETC.
BUT TO NEGLECT OR PATCH FIX THESE PROPERTIES WILL BECOME MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE, UNAFFORDABLE AND PROBLEMATIC IN THE END! THIS SEEMS TO CREATE AN UNSOLVABLE CRISIS FOR A GREAT MANY COMPANIES TODAY, IN THESE HARD ECONOMIC TIMES!
ROOFS & BUILDINGS Disposable Income Costs to set-aside for roof etc. replacements & repairs (neglect/ unplanned scenario) 1963 1978 2009 DISPOSABLE INCOME vs. DEPRECIATION These and other graphs, charts and calculations used in this slide-show are empirical approximations, not based on virtual models or formal accounting.
INLAND METAL ROOF DEPRECIATION & MAINTENANCE PLANNING CHART This chart shows typical deterioration and loss of value and functionality of a large galvanized steel roof in Gauteng. This projection assumes typical neglect and lack of suitable maintenance etc. Deprecation and maintenance/ repair rates are usually 30-300% higher at the coast, for common steel materials Neglected roof - “Death Valley Curve” Mechanical damage and loss of asset value become somewhat exponential from this point onwards Decay curve of correctly designed, constructed and well maintained roof. Each Rand correctly spent saves three Rand later. SHE & legal issues reduced by 80% or more!!
SOME BALLPARK ROOFING FIGURES FULL REPLACEMENT WITH MODERN ALL-POINTS BEST PRACTICES UPGRADES – INCLUDING VENTILATION, ROOFLIGHTS, INSULATION 20,000 M SQ X R1300 = R 26 MILLION MAJOR REBUILD, EPOXY COATING, PARTIAL REPLACEMENT 20,000 M SQ X R650 = R13 MILLION MAJOR STRIP AND RECOVER MAINTENANCE, EPOXY COATING 20,000 M SQ X R230 = R 4,6 MILLION DIVIDE THESE BY A 22 YEAR LIFE OF A NEGLECTED INDUSTRIAL ROOF = VERY SCARY NUMBERS! IS THERE ANY LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!?
The Really Good News The very cost-effective and advanced-level ARTF building and roof and maintenance and optimization system (SCRACE) can lead to a full resolution these risks and problems, and could save MANY MILLIONS OF RANDSin maintenance, damages, losses and legal costs! ARTF

New ultra-longlifeHulamin Colortech G3 factory pre-coated aluminium-alloy sheeting installed – warehouse in Ottery. Original (incorrectly specified) pre-coated galvanized steel sheeting began to fail 7 years after installation!
A VETERAN BUILDING AND ROOF RESEARCH AUTHORITY COMMENTS ON SCRACE “Although roofing project failures and sub-performance are (very) common in the local roofing industry, cases of such that have been reported to myself, the CSIR, ARTF or their senior members, regarding projects undertaken by ARTF approved specialist applicators, using the (SCRACE) specifications and application/ QA etc. systems, have decreased tozero”. M.S. Smit, Chief Research Officer (now retired), Division of Building and Construction Technology, CSIR. ( ) = editors changes ARTF
“The extreme costs, inconveniences, safety risks, and other liabilities associated with long-term … neglect and a “false economy” roof (and building) maintenance policy, are no longer acceptable… ARTF
This situation has, from a company profitability and sustainability point of view, reached critical proportions”. The Star – Property Section 16 June 2008 ARTF CONTACT DETAILS ON SLIDE NBR 24 ARTF
