Warm Roofs

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.

Flint Balcony Refurbishment and Waterproofing, North Wales

This rubber clad plywood on this balcony flat roof in Flint, North Wales had failed, deteriorating in several places. This was the third time the roof had had to be replaced in the space of 12 years and the owner was now seeking alternatives. As the pictures show, the flat roof was over a hollow storage area which adjoined the house. A new substrate was required along with a waterproof covering.

Aberystwyth University Laboratory - Llandinam, Penglais

QA Project reroofing the Llandinam Building, a laboratory on Aberystwyth University's Penglais Campus:

Multiple factors problematised the successful waterproofing of this laboratory refurbishment, including issues with keeping the building itself waterproof while the works progressed.

The laboratory roof has a series of higher levels draining into central chute outlets and discharging onto lower level roofs. These lower roofs have glazing along their entire lengths.

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. 

Lead Alternative Polymer Warm Roof in Stoke Golding, Leicestershire

The owners of this porch roof in rural Stoke Golding in Leicestershire needed a warm roof but also wanted the traditional lead look for their property.

Warm roofs must comply to U-value standards on insulation set by the government (more about warm roofs) and are essential for any roof areas that adjoin residential properties, including porches, extensions and join-on garages.

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.

New Warm Roof for Home in Comins Coch, Aberystwyth

This onetime-garage flat roof in Comins Coch a mile outside Aberystwyth in West Wales needed to conform to strict U value standards as it was being remodelled as a family kitchen and would be attached to the main property, thus making it a warm roof as well as a flat roof.

Belle Vue Hotel in Aberystwyth

The popular 36 room Belle Vue Hotel in Aberystwyth contacted us in desperate need of a new roof for a rear-facing area of the hotel. The existing mastic asphalt roof was blistered and leaking, requiring full re-waterproofing and weatherproofing, all while the hotel remained operational.

Bow Street Insulated Warm Roof

Warm Roofs are roofs that meet strict government guidelines for insulation or U-value (read more about warm roofs)

This project in Bow Street near Aberystwyth demonstrates how easy it can be to turn an existing roof into a warm roof - a simple process involving first stripping it down to the joists then fitting perimeter insulation inside the void and cold bridging joist.
