Ceredigion County Council Roof Refurbishment

Ceredigion County Council case study:

This portacabin roof at Ceredigion County Council houses the canteen drying room. Its paper backed single ply roof covering had perished and was in serious need of refurbishment.

Following this the coping stones were laid, as well as outlets to discharge rainwater from the roof through French drains into hoppers and normal external down pipes.
