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.

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.

Haverfordwest Warm Roof Terrace Upgrade

This complicated warm roof upgrade of a terrace in Haverfordwest, in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, had some unusual requirements - including difficult detailing around a defined secret guttering system and pads for metal safety railings.

As the photos above show, despite this high level of detailing, the polymer system is easily up to task - being "perfect forming" around details, jointless and seamless, fully wind and weatherproof, safe to walk on (within just a few hours) and guaranteed to last.

Essex Polymer Roof Extension

This new roof extension on a roof in Brentwood, Essex, was relatively straightforward despite the prominent central skylight and the fact it adjoins the main roof. The polymer system's inherent flexibility means details and joins are no problem.

As the photo shows, the finished roof is jointless and seamless, and "perfect forming" around the central skylight. It was also fully mechanically cured within 72 hrs, fully waterproof and weatherproof within a few hours, and is guaranteed to last.

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.

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.

Adaptable flashings for non-standard skylight at Aberystwyth University

Knowing the polymer system's flexibility and our high standard of work, Aberystwyth University in West Wales asked us to solve a tricky skylight issue...

Flashings and kerb upstands tend to be manufactured to particular sizes, meaning that non-standard skylights made to special size requirements can often present a challenge. 

Stratford-upon-Avon, Walk-on Warm Roof

This building at Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire required a warm roof with a u value of .13 in order to compensate for an unusually large surface area of glass below (from patio doors & other glass elavations).

The system insulation was 220mm thick, fully adhered, and did not need an extra layer of ply decking to sandwich the insulation, as the insulation we used is specially manufactured to be walked on for limited access without damage.
