Delicious it is a bit early. I think I'm going for a nice walk again.

I am here at the Meteotoren in Scheveningen. This tower was built just

after the war in around 1950 because the Netherlands was afraid of the Russians.

And then they built such towers all over the country

to see if they could see if the enemy was coming.

It is quite nice and now they actually serve

as a monument and the funny thing is that this tower is on a bunker.

And actually that whole beach here along the coast you have all kinds of bunkers

and they later threw sand over them.

And later, of course, the radar was further developed and these things (towers) were no longer necessary.

The funny thing about this building is that you can see that it is a bit skewed and that because

a bunker stands and the foundation of the bunkers is a bit skewed

, which of course also makes this tower skewed.

It is a bit the same effect as the tower of Pisa, but

we just have small pisatjes in Scheveningen in The Hague, laugh right.

I am always curious about how things are built, I always like to see how it is

built, for example this, how was it made, how was it made waterproof?

And that is of course important, because that is what our film is about, after all,

about renovating your roof and making your roof waterproof.

You have seen part 1 of course part 1 was the basis of how you start

with the roofing. Second thing I show you summer toe is, then we will burn the

top layer on it and the curbs, so if you pay close attention it would really be useful.

It is nice and early, it is seven o'clock and we are going to start with a roof today. We go

and re-cover with roofing and as I said it is nice and early so we are going

to wake up the neighbors and that is what I personally like the most about this job.

I am also going to show you how to do that and a little tips and tricks so that you also become a

lot wiser and I hope you enjoy this video I continue with Aziz.

Azizi feels a bit.

-Good morning guys, we're going to have a blast today until 11am.

You heard we are going to pop. Paf.

If you are going to install the Roof Trim there are a few things you should be

aware of. Aluminum Roof Trim expands so you have to be careful not to place them too tightly together.

Azizi is now working on the Daktrim behind me and he will

show you how best to do that.

Look at this is the coupling plate of the roof trim, you first connect it to the

first part, then connect the second part to the first part and make sure

that there is a seam of 3 mm. You need this seam to absorb the expansion.

You can fix the roof trim every 25 centimeters with turning nails or stainless steel screws.

If you are going to lay the roofing then the intention is that you start at the lowest

part and that you continue to cover from there. The lowest part is often

the roof drainage of course because the last point has to be and then you lay your first layer and

then the second layer is 10 centimeters over it, then it is run off.

And another third layer comes on the second layer again and the fourth layer then comes on the

third layer. They are supposed to overlap each other, 10 centimeters as I said before.

I will now show what I mean with 10 centimeters overlap, most roofing

such as slate covering, for example, they leave 10 centimeters or 7 centimeters uncovered with slate,

slate you that green slate material that is smeared or

glued over it, that ensures that the roof covering is resistant to UV rays.

With black roofing, they often make a line of 10 centimeters

or 7 centimeters so that you know that you have to cover up to there and it also has

a very nice function, then you also know whether you have holes straight. Because it may be if

you don't pay attention to that at the end of a day that you think hey gosh, what are

those jobs all skewed and the birds of course do not like that very much ...

Okay, I'll show you what I mean . This is, let's see, do you see it properly?

Yes this is the overlap so they have kept this place 7 centimeters.

So you have to overlap it at least 7 centimeters and they have not lubricated

this piece with slate so that the roof covering adheres more easily.

We are now going to paste the second layer on the first layer and I will show you

a trick and a handy method and yes everyone

does their own way, but I think this is really the best method.

You must first try to roll the roofing up as thinly as possible

and try to keep it straight and roll it towards you.

When you roll it back make sure your roofing rolls straight up and that you stay straight.

So that you are not rolling up anything crooked because if your roofing is going to stick on it again,

chances are you paste it on the serif, it does not look so nice and what I

said the birds do not like it so there is a chance that they more on your roof ... you know.

This must therefore be rolled straight so that it is not crooked so you have to make sure

that it is really cool and yes as soon as you see it that you wrote you make a bit straighter>

And you roll it back to the middle of the track so if you look there,

i stop so here am right in the middle now.

I'm going to paste this part first, then we'll do the second part.

I am now going to start by sticking the second layer over the first layer but before I start

there are really certain precautions you should take before burning.

This is the burner, there is a lot of fire coming out, dangerous!

Well you have to protect yourself, if at first difficult

you must of course first have gloves that can withstand flames.

Look these are gloves this is to protect my hands because the stuff (bitumen) that I

burn that flows that is 360 degrees when you get that on your skin, it is even and burned.

If you pull that off, you pull your skin with it. That's really painful I know what I'm talking about !.

The second before you go on the roof before you take all the stuff out of your car

there is one thing for sure, really be the first to put on it and that is a fire extinguisher.

Very important! You need a powder extinguisher for the

roof, so no foam extinguisher that does not work properly, it can only

cause it to rattle and flicker, so you should immediately throw it away.

You need a powder extinguisher for your roof. I have 2 pieces here, there is another

one, a larger and smaller one and when you have finished burning your roof

make sure you stay on your roof for at least 1 hour so that you can check whether

there is still a flame on it somewhere glowing is under the roof covering and that it will eventually

burn out completely. If you stay an hour behind, you can check it, you can tickle it.

So what you can do is that you of course make sure that when you are ready that you are going to clean up

things and that they check carefully afterwards. Please pay attention to that

because a lot of accidents happen and the insurance is very careful that you take

these precautions if you do not you are not insured.

This story is actually intended for the installers for the mechanics, not for the

do-it-yourselfers, but I will tell you, if a do-it-yourselfer wants to do this, then

you know in any case which handles you should use to to take precautions.

I'm going to start now.

Look carefully at what I can do.

First I start on the left with my burner and I heat it up there and I just go one smooth

movement to the right. With this movement I make the top layer and the bottom layer hot at the same time.

Then I go twice with a smooth movement

over the first track, keep the pace and don't make it too hot.

Before I go back to the left I make an extra warm where it closes together and then

I go with a smooth movement to the left and I only heat the top layer,

now I go back but at the same time I turn the roll 10 centimeters by.

Now you can repeat the actions.

Do not make the bitumen too hot because then everything will melt away, but

make sure that it flows away no more than 3 mm.

Here is the most important here the web

must flow together and flow away a maximum of 3 mm as you see here.

Here do him good hot flow is not necessary it should only be firmly

affixed to the substrate by controversy

Check the sides or I

flowed well if needed press it gently up to 3 mm out.


the edges it is important that you glue well and that there are no bulges,

be careful and do not make it too hot.

It is very important that you glue in the corners well, press

well and here on the side it must of course also flow.

Not too much, just enough a seam of about 3 mm.

So now it is time for a nice cup of coffee, we are going to get a cup of coffee in the

area and probably by the MacDonald, yes I have a nice cup now and then.
