Barry, South Wales Polymer Roof Refurbishment to Eliminate Ponding

This balcony terrace roof in Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales was pooling so much water it had become dangerous, especially for access to the outdoor steps coming down off it. As well as being year-round slip hazards, ponding and pooling result in increased weight pressure on the roof and hugely increase the risk of damp and water ingress to whatever is below.

Lead Refurbishment at Bronant School, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion

Bronnant or Bronant Primary School located between Aberystwyth and Tregaron in Ceredigion. A section of lead work sandwiched awkwardly between various roofs had split, exposing the substrate to the elements. We have worked on many schools around Ceredigion, thanks to the polymer system's uniquely low-impact process as well as the speed of installation. The system causes so little disruption that activities can usually be continued in the rooms below, while we work, and most roofs can be fully refurbished within one day.

Polymer Surfacing Aberystwyth Castle Walkway

Aberystwyth Castle is a historically important, thirteenth century Grade 1 Listed Building on the West Wales coast. A combination of tourist footfall and its windy, exposed position at the sea front gives it much to stand up to, throughout its large grounds.

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.

Lexham Gardens, Kensington 20 year Waterproofing & Quartz System

This terrace refurb case study demonstrates just how flexible the polymer system can be. This smart property in Lexham Gardens in South Kensington, London W8, had several exterior areas showing significant signs of degradation and pooling. These ranged from very narrow areas fronting the property to a patio seating area providing usable outdoor space.

Tapered Warm Roof Terrace in Radlett, Watford, Herts, North London

This roof terrace in Radlett near Watford in Hertfordshire, North London received a brand new polymer treatment during the winter months. As the photo shows, the terrace / balcony is subtly tapered, allowing for rainwater run-off and drainage.

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.

Flint Balcony Refurbishment and Waterproofing, North Wales

This rubber clad plywood on this balcony flat roof in Flint, North Wales had failed, deteriorating in several places. This was the third time the roof had had to be replaced in the space of 12 years and the owner was now seeking alternatives. As the pictures show, the flat roof was over a hollow storage area which adjoined the house. A new substrate was required along with a waterproof covering.

Troon Beach Front Development, Ayrshire, Scotland

Troon, on the west coast of Scotland, is known not only for its golf course but also for its strong winds, which come from the Atlantic and from the north down the Firth of Clyde. This makes it an excellent spot for windsurfing and kitesurfing, but a challenging spot for roofs!

One new 14 apartment development on the main seafront road illustrates this well - the roof area wrapped around the complex, each area presenting its own requirements and each requiring reliable longterm protection from the corrosive salt-rich sea air and the worst weather the Atlantic will throw at it.

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!
