Liquid Plastic Over An Old Felt RoofSteven Dickinson
This old roof had problems – inadequate fall and puddling.
Stripping and re-laying the roof to the correct falls was an option the customer thought was too expensive, so it was decided that this flexible liquid roofing system would be used. The system is basically glass fibre ‘GRP’, but the resins have been modified especially for roofing applications like this roof. The end result is extremely satisfying, looks good and can come with guarantees of up to 25 years, depending on the layers we use to build up the covering.
By being able to lay this roofing system over the old mineral felt, the environmental impact was softened, the lifespan of the roof increased and the overall cost to the customer was reduced.
