Liberty Point is a large student accommodation building positioned in a prime location in Southampton close to the marina and city centre. Recently the old asphalt and felt coverings had begun to display defects including splits, blisters and delamination; through which water ingress was occurring.

The property management company responsible for the maintenance of the buildings decided to act quickly and find a permanent solution to the leaking that could be installed without disruption to the busy students living there.

Following initial discussions with the client to determine their exact requirements, Polyroof Technical Services carried out a detailed survey of the roof areas to ensure that all the existing issues were identified. Due to the complex nature of the roof Polyroof's Protec system was put forward as the ideal solution

Polyroof's Protec system was decided upon as the best option due to the numerous details that would have to be encapsulated on the roof area. There is no liquid system that can do this quicker or more effectively than Protec, its unique RapidCure technology sees it turn from a liquid to a robust and flexible membrane that can be walked on after 30-60 minutes following application. Furthermore, its ability to coat an old roof without the need for stripping means that installations can be carried out within stringent time frames and with minimum disruption.

Williams Roofing Contractors Ltd, a highly experienced Polyroof approved contractor, carried out the installation. The quality of the workmanship coupled with the right choice of roofing material made for a superior refurbishment solution that remedied all the existing issues. The client was delighted with the finished roof and will have guaranteed peace of mind for decades to come.
