Waterstones, Leeds

Waterstones Leeds, one of the largest bookshops in the country, required major refurbishment works to the existing asphalt roof as it had reached the end of its serviceable life

due to cracking across the membrane.

Product brief:

To prevent further damage and extend the life of the roof, Proteus Waterproofing were asked to supply a high-quality waterproofing solution, therefore, Proteus Pro-System® was specified.

Key Requirements: High Performance Waterproofing

The asphalt deck was prepared using Pro-Carrier Membrane SA to cover the extensive cracks. Proteus Pro-System® could then be overlaid with ease onto the roof and any awkward detailing to create a seamless, low maintenance, robust finish. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor to ensure the project was successfully delivered to a very high standard, providing the client with a long-lasting solution.

Key Requirements: Health and Safety

Proteus Pro-System® is a cold applied waterproofing solution, therefore removes the need for hot works. This is of utmost importance when working on occupied public buildings.
