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.

Balcony in Mold, North Wales

This new build in Mold, Flintshire in North Wales needed a balcony surfacing system that would allow building work to continue without long disruption and delay. It was also essential that this area was fully waterproof and watertight quickly in order to keep the underlying fabric dry.

The polymer membrane system was the ideal choice, ensuring the entire balcony area was waterproofed and weatherproofed quickly, and safe to walk on within 6 hours so that work could continue uninterrupted!

Balcony Reroof for Flats Above Tesco Express in Chingford, Essex

This balcony roof area above Tesco Express in Chingford, Essex (Waltham Forest, London) serves six flats which are also leased to Waltham Forest Council in East London's Chingford E4.

The balcony area was run down and in need of refurbishment and complete reroofing. The existing mineral felt flat roof decking was saturated and the walkway decking needed replacing.

Bedroom Balcony in Bristol

This new balcony roof in Alveston, Bristol was created to access upper bedrooms after a sizeable extension had been built for the downstairs.

After pressure washing and preparation, the balcony roof was waterproofed with a liquid plastic decothane omegane system, which was applied to the roof deck, parapet walls, parapet top, and railing upstands, wrapping the roof completely. 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.

Ipswich Velux Roof Window Timber New Build

The building plans for this new build timber extension in Ipswich in Sussex involved two velux roof windows set into a flat timber roof edged with a deep fascia. The low angle of the skylights meant there was no room for error in sealing and waterproofing the roof windows, making the seamless, jointless polymer roofing system ideal for the project.

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.

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:
