New waterproof roofing system for housing development in Dorset

New waterproof roofing system for housing development in Dorset

Eclipse Roofing and Waterproofing, one of SOPREMA’s Approved Contractors, provided a robust yet aesthetically pleasing solution for two contemporary homes Canford Cliffs, Poole in Dorset.

The client, Serene Projects and the architect specified an attractive waterproofing system as the lower flat roofs would be overlooked from the terraces.

A bituminous specification was chosen to meet the key requirements. This involved a warm and cold roof system which included the SOPREMA Sopralene Optima C3 GMF, offering a 30 year single point warranty.

Eclipse Roofing and Waterproofing installed the waterproofing system across 650m2 of roof to a high standard and ensured that every bituminous bead was neat and continuous.

Shane Young, owner of Eclipse Roofing and Waterproofing commented “We also worked closely with a fabrication company ensuring the new balustrades for the terraces were totally waterproofed once installed. Part of this was achieved by installing SOPREMA’s ALSAN PMMA liquid waterproofing around the fixings points and intricate details”.

Serene Projects were happy with both houses, which are now on the market for over two million pounds. The project was also a finalist at the 2019 NFRC UK Roofing Awards for best ‘Reinforced Bitumen Membranes’.

The Optima Warm Roof waterproofing system included:
Primer: Sopradere Quick
Vapour Barrier: Sopravap Alu Activa 2
Insulation: 120mm Sopratherm T Insulation
Vented Underlayer: Ventirock SBS 3 TF
Cap sheet: Sopralene Optima C3 GMF
