Polymer Cold Roof for School near Aberystwyth

This school near Aberystwyth in Ceredigion, West Wales required a cold roofing system (click for more on cold and warm roofs) for a flat area adjoined to a larger roof.

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. 

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). Roof "obstacles" and detailing are no problem at all for the polymer system but in this case were sparse, being limited primarily to chimney venting.

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.

Borth Ynyslas Seaside House - A Full Polymer Refurb

This seaside property in Borth (Ynyslas) on the west coast of Cerdigion in Wales really put the polymer system through its paces, using the system's incredible versatility to achieve multiple ends that ultimately involved not just roofs but walls and windows.

The house now has a polymer lined balcony, converted from an existing roof area, a fully sealed and watertight Dorma window, and coated walls, protecting it from the worst of the Welsh weather and sea winds for many years to come.

Argos Roof Maintenance and Repairs

The roof of the Argos in Aberystwyth in West Wales was so choked with vegetation and debris from nesting birds, leaves and general accumulation, that the store had begun to flood badly. This had cost the business significant money cleaning up the mess and had also lost Argos thousands of pounds in damaged stock.

Aberystwyth University Laboratory - Llandinam, Penglais

QA Project reroofing the Llandinam Building, a laboratory on Aberystwyth University's Penglais Campus:

Multiple factors problematised the successful waterproofing of this laboratory refurbishment, including issues with keeping the building itself waterproof while the works progressed.

The laboratory roof has a series of higher levels draining into central chute outlets and discharging onto lower level roofs. These lower roofs have glazing along their entire lengths.

Polymer Roof Refurb in Talybont, Ceredigion

This wraparound roof in Talybont in Ceredigion, West Wales, was badly leaking and in desperate need of repair and refurbishment. Water was pooling everywhere, the existing surface was ripped, lifting and leaking, and moss had formed in clumps over much of the surface.

Despite this, the underlying roof was still sound and able to be reused!

Aberystwyth Balcony with Quartz System

Aberystwyth, on the wet and windy west coast of Wales, is a place that knows how important waterproofing is! Balconies that pool and collect water are balconies that rot and decay before their time, never lasting as long as their materials would suggest. The polymer system, which reuses plastic polymer particles, keeping them out of rivers and seas, is fully waterproof. It provides a seamless, jointless covering for balconies, roofs and walkways.

Adaptable flashings for non-standard skylight at Aberystwyth University

Knowing the polymer system's flexibility and our high standard of work, Aberystwyth University in West Wales asked us to solve a tricky skylight issue...

Flashings and kerb upstands tend to be manufactured to particular sizes, meaning that non-standard skylights made to special size requirements can often present a challenge.
