Lead Alternative Polymer Warm Roof in Stoke Golding, Leicestershire

The owners of this porch roof in rural Stoke Golding in Leicestershire needed a warm roof but also wanted the traditional lead look for their property.

Warm roofs must comply to U-value standards on insulation set by the government (more about warm roofs) and are essential for any roof areas that adjoin residential properties, including porches, extensions and join-on garages.

Stratford-upon-Avon, Walk-on Warm Roof

This building at Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire required a warm roof with a u value of .13 in order to compensate for an unusually large surface area of glass below (from patio doors & other glass elavations).

The system insulation was 220mm thick, fully adhered, and did not need an extra layer of ply decking to sandwich the insulation, as the insulation we used is specially manufactured to be walked on for limited access without damage.

Polymer Roofing a Parapet Wall in Upton, Northampton

This flat roof area in Upton, Northampton included well constructed internal parapet wall detailing. Despite the excellent workmanship, however, the occasional need to stand up to excessive rainfall and high winds had not been factored into the design, meaning that the outside edges (7m2 per elevation) were pouring too much rain water onto the window sills below.

Copper Roof Alternative following theft at Oliver Bird Hall, Solihull

Copper roofing theft had caused considerable damage to the roof of the Oliver Bird Hall in Solihull, a community hall in a conservation area near Birmingham in the West Midlands.

The Local Council granted planning permission for the rear elevation roof to be coated in liquid membrane. Unusually, the decision was then made to remove the entire roof, allowing work to progress easily and without the need for scaffolding.

Cottage roof terrace in Oswestry, Shropshire

This bedroom roof terrace at a Shropshire cottage in Oswestry, on the border between England and North-East Wales, was leaking significantly.

The existing slabs and leaking felt underlying these were removed to give a fresh base. We then installed a tray to span the cavity, before applying a full 15-year system to join the tray seamlessly to the roof.

Work on the roof terrace was completed in just 3 days, leaving the owners delighted.
