Flat Roofs

Fall Correction to Terrace in Caernarfon

This roof terrace / balcony area in Caernarfon (Gwynedd, North Wales) had a drainage issue, with water not running off as it should due to a faulty fall. Our job here was to correct the fall and create a roof with proper run-off.

Warm Roof in New Quay, Ceredigion SA25

This project involved two roofs at the same property in New Quay on the West Wales Ceredigion coast (SA25). One was a smaller, low-level flat roof with a skylight and tapered drainage; the other was a large, warm roof area atop the building which needed lipped ridge sills to help protect the pitched skylight windows below from excess water. As the photos show, the polymer installation also runs up the side of the chimney stack, creating a jointless seamless barrier to prevent water ingress.

WHAT NEXT?

Terrace Balcony Warm Roof Upgrade in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire

This complicated warm roof upgrade of a terrace in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, West Wales SA61, had some unusual requirements - including difficult detailing around a defined secret guttering system and pads for metal safety railings. The 1.6m wide terrace balcony area was showing signs of wear and rot and the owners also wanted to give it a general facelift. They opted for a 20 year Protec system, traditional-look railings, all finished with beautiful, cost effective porcelain tiling (around £14 each) with adjustable angle and height pads.

Chorley Hospital Polymer Roof

The NHS Foundation Hospital at Chorley in Preston, Lancashire, was in need of a high performance, durable cold roof for one of its many smaller roofing areas. 

We installed a 20 Year Sika Liquid Plastics Decotane Ultra roof, which has excellent specifications and also comes with an optional maintenance package.

Tapered warm roof installation at Carno, Powys

This insulated terrace roof in the small village of Carno in Powys SY17 required warm roof insulation, noggings/noggins fitted for balustrade railings, and a tapered gradient for drainage. It also enjoys a fully waterproof and weatherproof 20 year guaranteed polymer system.

Borth dormer cold roof upgrade

These three dormer windows in Borth, near Aberystwyth in Ceredigion SY24, were in need of (cold roof) upgrade with correct ventilation including over-fascia ventilation. The work required a 50mm air gap with 4m maximum air travel.

Penrith Warm Roofs with Gradient Tapered Insulation & Poly roof protection

These two roofs in Winskill, near Penrith in Cumbria CA10, required a high degree of careful tapering to create an insulated polymer gradient that will channel rainwater away from the central skylight and away from the adjoining wall. This will protect the integrity of both the skylight and the roof substrate, ensuring water will not pool or sit.

Inset Balcony Terrace with Quartz Finish, Whitchurch, Shropshire

This balcony terrace, intended to provide a cosy outdoor space, had seen better days - as the photographs show. To refurbish it and correct the problems that had caused the issues in the first place, we stripped everything back, then gradually layered in the polymer system to create a strong, jointless and seamless balcony that should last for many years to come. We completed with a tough, anti-skid quartz finish - chosen by the customer from our range of colour options - creating a safe, ordered, efficently drained and aesthetically pleasing, weatherproof space. 

Llandinam Warm Roof with Tapered Outlets to Gutter SY17

This roof in Llandinam (SY17) was an unusual project in terms of shape and design - constituting a wide strip of roofing surrounding a central opening for an extra large skylight lantern aperture over a sun room. The roofing area also needed to be meticulously tapered to the guttering to provide thorough drainage from the central area to avoid puddling, which could damage the roof structure and impair safety. We used two outlets draining to a standard downpipe via a special flat roof outlet.

Hereford Warm Roof Build

This detached building in Hereford required a new warm roof (for more on warm roofing click here) to comply with building regulations and create a cosy environment below. The photographs show the overall building as well as the joists ready for insulation.
