Vital Work on Soaked Insulation Boards at Hwyel Dda Health Trust Ceredigion

Soaking insulation boards were a major problem not quoted for (not known about) in the overlay specification from this NHS Hwyel Dda Health Trust hospital. Replacing this full-tapered insulation system would have cost almost 15k, and the hospital had no other budget left to allocate - which could have scuppered the whole project.

A solution to help our NHS keep extremely important rooms in use was needed... and we found one.

Chimney Waterproofing with Resins, Aberystwyth

These problematic chimneys, in a conservation area at the old gas works in Aberystwyth, West Wales, needed waterproofing.

The chimney pots themselves were disused, having been capped with matching terracotta ventilation caps, which were removable to allow change of use of the chimney flue.

Aberdyfi Extended Balcony Terrace

This residential property in Aberdyfi, on the West Wales coast (North Wales county Gwynedd LL35) was perfect for an extended balcony terrace / garage roof terrace above the parking area.

The final, spacious balcony was coated with the Poly Roof Protec 20 year system and enhanced with polygrip anti slip coating (car park grade to ensure long life & unrestricted use).

Brecon Residential Home Polymer Roof

Gwenllian Morgan Court in Brecon in South Wales LD3 7ET needed refurbishment for the flat walkway-style areas of its rooftop (i.e. between slate areas).

As the photographs show, this was well within the capability of the polymer system - the main issue being creating a jointless, seamlessly waterproof seal when the roof is of two different materials.

This was, however, no problem. The final result is neat, watertight and guaranteed to last for at least 20 years.

Newbuild Warm Roof - Quartzed Terraced Roof in Llanrhystud

This newbuild in Llanrhystud (halfway between Aberystwyth and Aberaeron in Ceredigion, West Wales SY23) needed a warm roof for a good sized first-floor terrace area spanning two sets of patio doors / French windows.

The weather was beautiful so it was enjoyable (if warm!) work. The client chose a quartz system for additional durability and non-slip qualities.

They now have a long-lasting, high-performance terrace overlooking the gorgeous West Wales scenery!

Complete Garage Roof Rebuild for Under 10K - Borth, Wales

This enviably large 46m2 garage roof in Borth on the West Wales coast (SY24, Ceredigion) had been so neglected that nothing was salvageable (which is rare). In this case, it meant a complete rebuild. The entire job cost less than 10K.

Glengower Hotel Aberystwyth 20 Year Polymer Roof

The Glengower is a traditional sea-front pub and restaurant in the popular West Wales town of Aberystwyth. Its roof was suffering standing water (a major cause of water ingress, mould growth and eventual roof instability).

We removed the standing water by increasing the sump sizes, lowering the outlets and removing the duct work while new waterproofing was applied. After that, the duct work was quickly refitted. The process and our approach eliminated disruption to the hotel, a major consideration in particular for public-facing businesses of this nature.

Aberystwyth University dance studio refurb

These portacabin-style dance studios at Aberystwyth University (SY23) were in need of refurbishment involving coating the metal cladding to waterproof it and prolong its life.

We used the Polycoat RoofTec Elite system over the entire exterior - demonstrating the incredible versatility of the polymer system and the range of uses in which it excels.


Aberystwyth cold roof terrace

This cold roof terrace in Aberystwyth, West Wals (SY23) supplies upgraded ventilation and new decking for the owners. The whole balcony is jointless and seamless, meaning water drains away readily and the terrace takes advantage of both a Polyroof 20 year waterproofing system and a 10 year quartz system.


Aberystwyth Small Dorma Overlay

This Dorma window refurbishment in Aberystwyth, West Wales (SY23) shows no job is too small for the polymer system!

We installed a 15 year overlay system 15 year, ventilation inserted, over an increase of 80mm insulated plaster board. This resulted in noticeable improvement on heat loss.
