For the owners of this domestic new build project, a high quality flat roof which could incorporate thermal insulation and long-lasting, fully guaranteed waterproofing system was a must.

Following discussions with Cure Roofing, a Polyroof approved contractor based in South Yorkshire, the use of the Protec Cut-to-Falls Warm Roof system was decided upon. Combining insulation and design falls in one simple solution, the system excels in directing standing water away from the roof and providing the required thermal performance.

Polyroof Technical Services produced a bespoke cut-to-falls scheme that ensured the target U-Value was achieved and that water was suitably directed to the rainwater goods, whilst also accommodated a large rooflight.

A key advantage of the cut-to-falls insulation system, which enabled Cure Roofing to carry out a rapid installation, is its use of a PU adhesive. There was no need for the use of mechanical fixings, which can become awkward and time consuming with tapered insulation.

Once the insulation was bonded, the BBA and ETA certified Protec system in Chromite Grey was applied directly to the insulation boards. By eliminating the need for a carrier layer above the insulation, such as OSB3 or felt, the costs, height & weight of the roof and the installation times are kept to a minimum.

The client was delighted with the quality workmanship that led to a neat, tidy finish with long lasting waterproof protection. Cure Roofing used a drone to capture the roof being installed and took some impressive overhead shots of the roof that can be viewed here.
