20 Year Polymer Quartz Balcony in Bude, Cornwall

This unusual seven-sided balcony terrace area in Bude in North Cornwall was leaking and in need in refurbishment.

This terrace refurb case study again demonstrates how flexible the polymer system can be and how well its jointless and seamless "perfect forming" nature is suited to sites that might prove challenging for many other systems.

Bude Cold Roof to Warm Roof Conversion

This building in Bude in North Cornwall needed its roof converted from Cold Roof to Warm Roof. This was however a trickier than usual job as the existing roof needed to remain entirely in situ and there was a very large area requiring insulation.

The photos above show the state the roof was in prior to work commencing, with the last 4 pictures showing the completed installation.

Bedroom Balcony in Bristol

This new balcony roof in Alveston, Bristol was created to access upper bedrooms after a sizeable extension had been built for the downstairs.

After pressure washing and preparation, the balcony roof was waterproofed with a liquid plastic decothane omegane system, which was applied to the roof deck, parapet walls, parapet top, and railing upstands, wrapping the roof completely. Following this the coping stones were laid, as well as outlets to discharge rainwater from the roof through French drains into hoppers and normal external down pipes.

Lead roof alternative at Langport Veterinary Centre, Somerset

This veterinary centre in Langport, Somerset shows clearly the effect of stolen lead roofing (as well as how easily people can find themselves the victims of lead roof theft). As you can see, the lead covering the porch roof was within arm's reach and was stolen in late 2010. The striping you can see on the porch canopy is all that was left - a few rows of wooden boards.

Flat roof garden in Bristol

This client was selling his apartment, but the purchaser's presale surveyor had picked up that the tired atrium and leaking flat roof below the promenade slabs were reaching the end of their life span, jeopardising the sale.

We removed the slabs that were already there, allowing the substrate (the material beneath the slabs) to be thoroughly cleaned and prepared.
