Vital Work on Soaked Insulation Boards at Hwyel Dda Health Trust Ceredigion

Soaking insulation boards were a major problem not quoted for (not known about) in the overlay specification from this NHS Hwyel Dda Health Trust hospital. Replacing this full-tapered insulation system would have cost almost 15k, and the hospital had no other budget left to allocate - which could have scuppered the whole project.

A solution to help our NHS keep extremely important rooms in use was needed... and we found one.

Aberdyfi Extended Balcony Terrace

This residential property in Aberdyfi, on the West Wales coast (North Wales county Gwynedd LL35) was perfect for an extended balcony terrace / garage roof terrace above the parking area.

The final, spacious balcony was coated with the Poly Roof Protec 20 year system and enhanced with polygrip anti slip coating (car park grade to ensure long life & unrestricted use).

Brecon Residential Home Polymer Roof

Gwenllian Morgan Court in Brecon in South Wales LD3 7ET needed refurbishment for the flat walkway-style areas of its rooftop (i.e. between slate areas).

As the photographs show, this was well within the capability of the polymer system - the main issue being creating a jointless, seamlessly waterproof seal when the roof is of two different materials.

This was, however, no problem. The final result is neat, watertight and guaranteed to last for at least 20 years.

Metal Portable Unit Roof Improvements North Devon

This metal mobile portable telecoms unit in North Devon required improvements to the roof.

The gutters, which were small, kept blocking. As this causes a range of serious problems, the gutters were removed. New drip trim and deep flow alloy gutters were fitted, creating a roof that will now channel water properly.

Following this, the entire roof was then encapsulated in poly roof Protec fiberglass, completing the roof.


Garage Decking & Timber Firring/Furring in Ceredigion

This new-build garage in Ceredigion, West Wales, needed fully decking and timber furring (also spelled firring) to create a tilt on the roof, ensuring good drainage. The roof adjoins the wall of the main house, which means particular u-values also needed to be observed.

The end result is a roof that will withstand even the toughest weather Wales can throw at it!

National Library of Wales Plant Room - Polymer Roof Refurbishment of Mastic Asphalt

A 180m2 roof area of National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth is undergoing installation as part of a wider decarbonsation plan for the public sector.

The roof had to be refurbished with a long-lasting jointless and seamless roofing system as the entire roof will be underneath steel RSJs supporting a heat pump. The roof was mastic asphalt covered in chippings & moss. It needed to be cleared and de-chipped, before having all defects filled out with specialist roofing levelling mortar.

The roof was prepared and primed with Poly Roof primer, before full installation.

Aberystwyth University Ply Roofing Replacement

This single ply membrane roof at the University of Aberystwyth had been leaking for many years. After preparation works, including pressure washing to thoroughly clean the area, three splits were found, necessitating a roof replacement. Polymer roofing is a better-lasting material that doesn't split after time (the degradation process is slower and results in gradual 'chalking' rather than splits or lifts - meaning no water ingress).

Bin Storage Unit in Cheltenham

The owners of this new bin storage area in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire were looking for a long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing solution to keep outdoor bins dry and well-protected from the weather.

As the photographs show, the polymer system is just as versatile and effective for smaller projects as for larger ones. We were able to construct a cleanly-draining roof area, tapered to inbuilt guttering so the water never pools - meaning no weight-related roof collapse, no gathering moss, no algae or mould, no water ingress or leaks and no large areas of ice in the winter.

Newbuild Warm Roof - Quartzed Terraced Roof in Llanrhystud

This newbuild in Llanrhystud (halfway between Aberystwyth and Aberaeron in Ceredigion, West Wales SY23) needed a warm roof for a good sized first-floor terrace area spanning two sets of patio doors / French windows.

The weather was beautiful so it was enjoyable (if warm!) work. The client chose a quartz system for additional durability and non-slip qualities.

They now have a long-lasting, high-performance terrace overlooking the gorgeous West Wales scenery!

Complete Garage Roof Rebuild for Under 10K - Borth, Wales

This enviably large 46m2 garage roof in Borth on the West Wales coast (SY24, Ceredigion) had been so neglected that nothing was salvageable (which is rare). In this case, it meant a complete rebuild. The entire job cost less than 10K.
