St George’s Hotel chose Polyroof for a roof development which created five brand new luxury balcony bedrooms to the new top level of the hotel.
The project saw the roof completely removed from the 163-year-old building and raised by two metres in order to accommodate the five exclusive new rooms.
Opened in the Spring of 1854, the St. George’s Hotel was the first modern building to be erected on the promenade at Llandudno. This important landmark has been extended several times and has hosted several high-profile guests including Winston Churchill. The hotel today remains current and recently won the AA Hotel of the Year for Wales.
Before the existing roof structure could be striped the façade of the historic seafront hotel had to be covered from top to bottom in scaffolding and provided with basic waterproofing protection by tarpaulin sheets.
Polyroof's 185 System was decided upon as the best waterproofing option for the hotel roof as the membrane wouldn't just be withstanding rainfall, but footfall in the balcony areas too. 'Light Battleship Grey' coloured 185 was laid directly to 18mm Metsa Spruce II/III plywood in conjunction with a warm roof system in both roof and balcony areas.
185 carries Polyroof’s trusted Accredited System Guarantee; this guarantee is supported for 20 years by an independently administered trust fund with additional annually renewable insurance as standard. As well as this the 185 System is extremely hardwearing and can withstand regular foot traffic without additional protection due to its highly impact-resistant finish, this made it ideal for this project.
