Copper Alternative Spire and Roof, Llandrindod Wells

The Metropole Hotel in Llandrindod Wells in Powys, Mid Wales is one of the town's main landmarks with a long history and great visitor appeal. Its patinated copper roof spires are an integral part of its traditional look and stately charm, but over the years they have worn and perished, their seams nearly disintegrating and the copper plates pocking and eroding.

The pictures above show the overlaid system in progress, creating a durable, affordable roofing system that is jointless and seamless, making leaks a thing of the past. 

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.

Warm Roof in Waunfawr, Aberystwyth

This flat roof in Waunfawr, Aberystwith in Ceredigion (West Wales) required warm roof insulation to comply with government U-values regarding (a measure of the rate of heat transfer across a surface).

Copper Alternative Trailer Coating in Cobham, Surrey

One of our more unusual requests!

This one was for a domed traditional style trailer roof/outer near Woking in Cobham, Surrey, which the owner wished to have coated using our verdi green copper-alternative system. The photographs show a step-by-step breakdown of the entire process from start to finish. 

Warm Roof in St Davids Road, Aberystwyth

The abutting roof on this property on St Davids Road in Aberystwth needed full insulation to comply with governmental "U-Value" standards. "Warm roofs" differ from cold roofs in that they do not require ventilation and the insulation is placed above, rather than between the joists. They are required by law on certain roof types such as where people will live and/or work beneath or, as here, where an extension meets the main roof (see warm roof section for more on this).

Llanybydder Cold Roof

This flat roof in west Wales needed proper ventilation to resolve moisture build up, a common problem for cold roofs (explained here in relation to warm roofing) especially in such notoriously rainy areas of the UK.
