Copper roofing theft had caused considerable damage to the roof of the Oliver Bird Hall in Solihull, a community hall in a conservation area near Birmingham in the West Midlands.

The Local Council granted planning permission for the rear elevation roof to be coated in liquid membrane. Unusually, the decision was then made to remove the entire roof, allowing work to progress easily and without the need for scaffolding.

12mm WBP hardwood ply boards were used to cover the damaged roof areas, before base coating the areas in liquid polymer and fitting standing seams.

The copper alternative verdi green top coat was then applied, giving the community hall a long lasting 20 year roofing system which can readily be expanded at low cost in case of further copper theft.

The liquid polymer roofing system offers great high quality, theft-proof copper-look roofs for extremely competetive prices
