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.

The owners chose a 20 year polymer roof protection, guaranteeing the roof will last at least that long (when it eventually wears, it "chalks" rather than cracking or leaking like many roof surfaces, giving plenty of notice for repair).
