Balconies and Roof Gardens

Aberystwyth Flat Roof is also a Warm Roof

The owner of this seventies style flat roof home in Aberystwyth had had enough of re-roofing!

Originally covered in mastic asphalt, then covered in metal clad box profile metal roofing sheets 10 years ago, this flat roof had undergone minor repair after minor repair.

Sedum Green Roof for Sri Lankan High Commission in St Johns Wood, London

This sedum green roof was created especially for the Sri Lankan High Commission in St Johns Wood in London, and was designed to be both environmentally responsible and aesthetically pleasing for many years to come.

The high standard living sedum roof was fitted over the top of a 25 year gamma liquid membrane flat roofing system, ensuring the roof will remain strong, waterproof, weatherproof and beautiful.

Leaking Balcony Rescue in Pitlochry, Scotland

The tiled balcony walkways at this hotel in Pitlochry, Scotland, were leaking badly. Despite good workmanship, there was a lack of suitable materials beneath the tiles themselves, resulting in real problems for the hotel owners.

The picture gallery above shows not only the initial leaking but the stage-by-stage refurbishment of the entire balcony (all the way round).

Commercial Warm Green Roof in Waltham Forest

Waltham Forest Council in Greater London wanted a new bowling pavilion with a warm roof build up and seeded turf roof (or Green Roof) for the park in Forest Road, Walthamstow.

One of the main challenges with turf roofing is ensuring what is underneath provides adequate waterproofing.

Working alongside the innovative contractor Jerram Falkus, we used the pioneering liquid polymer roofing technology to ensure the best possible base:

Ceredigion County Council roof: Aberaeron, West Wales

The Ceredigion County Council offices in Aberaeron, near Aberystwyth in West Wales were sheltering under a quickly perishing flat roof. The roof itself was of a substantial size, and was made from high grade mineral felt which, overall, was in excellent condition and exhibited good workmanship. It was, however, leaking water in several places.

We kept the existing mineral felt roof, overcoating with the liquid polymer system, sealing and waterproofing the roof while retaining as much of the existing roofing material as possible.

Balcony Roof Terrace in Camden, London NW1

The owners of this rooftop in Camden, London needed a total roof refurbishment to transform the 20m2 area into a balcony roof terrace that they could enjoy using.

We fitted taper insulation, giving quick simple drainage without affecting where tables and chairs could go, and covered the area using tongue-and-groove ply decking prior to waterproofing the roof terrace.

The specialist balcony roofing coat was mixed with hard wearing quartz to give a bit of extra sparkle, as well as to increase the balcony terrace's resistance to rooftop foot traffic!

Balcony in Helensburgh, Scotland

This balcony in Helensburgh in Dunbartonshire, Scotland was completed in September 2010. The concrete deck was applied with a specialist self-levelling compound, before application of the primer.

In all, two coats of waterproofing membrane were applied, to give a jointless, seamless, fully waterproof and weatherproof system ( a must in Scotland!)

We used a specialist balcony flooring resin to lay the forest green quartz the owners wanted to use, sealing this into the balcony floor with a resin finish.

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.

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.
