Roof Refurbishment, Brookfield Court, Bexhill-on-Sea

At Brookfield Court, an ageing residential block of flats near the seafront at Bexhill-on-Sea, a series of roofs had been overlaid with felt and had many repairs that were failing. As part of the roofing refurbishment, the client wanted to upgrade the roof insulation to current insulation guideline values and install a new waterproofing membrane to provide a minimum further 20 years to first maintenance.

Product brief:

Proteus Waterproofing provided a comprehensive range of solutions that met the design, budget and guarantee requirements of the project. Proteus Pro-Felt®, incorporating Proteus Pro-Therm Insulation, was chosen as a quality engineered system at an affordable price. There was a further challenge of an existing 1.5m high rendered parapet wall running around the edge of the roofs, which was in poor condition due to direct exposure to the elements. For this difficult detail, Proteus Pro-System®was chosen to encapsulate the complete inside face of the walls and the parapet tops, providing a seamless elastomeric waterproofing system.
