Protan Warm Roof-Near Shifnal, Shropshire

By / Case Studies / Comments Off on Protan Warm Roof-Near Shifnal, Shropshire

Last year we were contracted by a local customer to undertake a roof refurbishment of an existing warehouse unit being converted into a domestic dwelling. The large low pitch roof area needed a warm roof covering to bring the buildings insulation up to standard. Once the roof deck was complete and the timber curb was fitted, we installed Protan’s se1.6mm standard overlap system.

The system comprised of Protan’s vapour control layer, 150mm PIR insulation board. This was mechanically fixed system. Once all joints were taped and sealed with insulation tape, the membrane layer was fitted. Once heat welded and restrained at the edges and around the Velux flat roof lights. The cover strips were welded to finish the system and ensure a perfect weathertight seal.

The perimeters of the roof were then finished using Alutec Fascia and rainwater goods in Anthracite 7016. The PPC aluminium really makes a bold statement, and gives that contemporary look to this now modern conversion. Another very customer! and another Single ply roof that will stand the test of time.

Curved Barn-Shrewsbury

We were asked to supply and install a curved standing seam roof on this barn conversion near Shrewsbury, Shropshire. our client requested a black finish on the roof. We opted to use Euroclad’s Vieo profile for the roof sheeting. We had the sheets pre curved in their factory before being deliverd to site for a rapid installation.

We finished the roof off with pre curved verge flashings giving a very sleek and smooth curve to the edge of the roofline.

A PPC aluminium Box gutter was installed to take the rainwater away, down four integral downpipes hidden in the buildings façade.

Another fantastic looking project!

Protan Warm Roof-Crawley

Ecoply were asked to supply and install a single ply warm roof to this extension in Crawley. We were asked to provide a 25year manufacturers warranty. To achieve this we used Protan’s Se1.8mm standard overlap membrane and uprated the fixings to stainless steel.

We first laid out the vapour control layer and ensured all laps/joins were taped and sealed. Then we installed the PIR insulation boards, before the Velux flat roof lights were dropped into position.

Then the Protan single ply system was installed, including reinforced Protan edge trims to the eaves, verges and also chased and sealed against the brickwork. The carefully heat welded overlaps and cover strips ensure a permanent weathertight seal that will last a very long time.

Barn Conversion-Coventry

We were recently contracted to supply and install a Colorcoat urban roof and rainwater goods on this barn conversion in the midlands. Our client wanted the popular colour Anthracite Ral 7016 to match the windows and doors. The roof was of cold roof construction, and included six Velux rooflights, also six soil vent pipes. we used Dektite flashings to seal around these, giving a neat and solid seal against the metal roof. We also installed a Colorcoat fascia to the eaves and verges before finishing the project off nicely with Tata steel’s Colorcoat urban rainwater system. comprising of 100x125mm box gutter and 76x76mm square downpipes. This roof was installed in 5 days and we returned for a further day to fit the downpipes.

A fantastic conversion of an agricultural building into 3 new dwellings.

Vieo Zinc Standing Seam Roof – Norwich Estates, Apartment Block

By / News / Comments Off on Vieo Zinc Standing Seam Roof – Norwich Estates, Apartment Block

vieo-zinc-standing-seam-roofEcoply Uk Ltd were contracted to supply and install a Vieo zinc standing seam roofing system for this new build block of flats in Anglia square, Norwich.

Due to the height and size of this roof Materials had to be craned to the roof. The sheets were over 13 meters in length. This was a cold roof design so we had allow for cross flow ventilation underneath the plywood deck. We did this using special vent’s around the ridge and verges, and a mesh at the eaves to the underside of the sheet overhang into the metal gulley. We used a pvc laminated metal for the gulley’s, which are heat welded at every join, creating a continuous membrane.

The sheets are fixed using a sliding clip system which are hidden by the overlapping seam. The seams are then crimped together using a specialist crimping tool.

We used the same material for the fascia’s around the entire roof. EcoPly also provided the labour for the fitting of the fibre cement board soffits.

This was a great project to be involved with and we are looking forward to being involved in the next stage of this prestigious development.

By / News / Comments Off on Single Ply Flat Foof – Rushden, Northants

single-ply-rushdenEcoPly UK Ltd were contracted to remove this customers old conservatory roof and replace with a new timber flat roof structure with a Protan single ply membrane roof and two Velux roof lights.

When the customer contacted us, she said she couldn’t use the room due to the glass shattering in places and it being too hot in the Summer and too cold in the Winter. So we got to work striping the old conservatory roof off. Luckily they had masonry walls either side which allowed us to fit an RSJ across the eaves to support the new roof structure. We then provided them with a single ply warm roof system with 150mm of insulation. Two new Velux roof lights were fitted as well, allowing the customer to keep light in the room. The roof drains into a hidden gulley at the eaves. We fitted new UPVC fascia’s and downpipe. We also completed the internal works as well including plastering and decorating. They now have a room they can use all year round. They received a manufacturer backed warranty for the roof system and an insurance backed warranty from EcoPly UK Ltd.

By / News / Comments Off on Single Ply Flat Roof – Tonbridge Wells, Kent

single-ply-tunbridge-wellsEcoply UK Ltd were contracted to provide a single ply warm roof system for this small extension to the rear of this property that was undergoing renovation. There wasn’t much room for the installation team to move on this one due to it being so small and a big roof light in the middle.

First a vapour control layer was applied and then 120mm of foil backed insulation was mechanically fixed to the existing timber deck. We created a shallow gulley against the house wall which the water drains into and then out of a through wall outlet. Then we installed the single ply system creating a completely water proof membrane that was dressed up and over the parapet walls. The installation was very fast taking only one day to complete. This system came with a 15 year manufacturer backed warranty.
