This is because apart from protecting the inhabitants of a house or users of a building, the roof plays a major in regulating temperature. “The first step is to ensure that the roof surface is clean and clear of any dirt or dust particles,” says Ms Muthoni. “This analysis is important because it helps determine the quantity of membrane to be used, as well as the type of primer,” explains Ms Muthoni. “The greatest advantage of this type of protection is the fact that it is waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about leaking roofs,” says Ms Muthoni.

By EDITORIALMore by this AuthorWhen the National Super Alliance filed a petition challenging President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election, it became the Supreme Court’s sole duty to determine the outcome. In law, matters before court are sacrosanct and their merits or demerits cannot be canvassed in public. Now, the Supreme Court has come out forcefully to caution President Uhuru Kenyatta, his main challenger, Nasa’s Raila Odinga, electoral commission boss Wafula Chebukati, their advisers and others against discussing the petition in public.

PHOTO | FILEKasarani Stadium will be sealed off from Thursday in readiness for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s swearing in ceremony, Nairobi News has learnt. This despite an ongoing case at the Supreme Court whose results could potentially postpone this State function by up to three months. Mr Odinga has, however, challenged the results in the highest court in Kenya, effectively moving the swearing in ceremony to mid-September, at the earliest -and this in the event that President Kenyatta’s victory is upheld. The other alternative by the seven-team Judge bench headed by Justice Maraga entails annulling Kenyatta’s victory and ordering for a repeat of the presidential election within 60 days. In this scenario event, the swearing in for the country’s next President will have to wait for up to 90 days.
