A 180m2 Sika Sarnafil single ply roof membrane has been installed on the roof of a swimming pool extension at a heritage home in Mudeford, Dorset. The project was carried out by Volsen Limited, a Roof Assured by Sarnafil registered installer based in nearby Bournemouth.
The clients brief to the team at Volsen was that he wanted a finished roof that would not only look good, but perform well. The Sarnafil single ply membrane had all the credentials and with a BBA certification for a life expectancy in excess of 40 years, offered that extra reassurance of sustainability.
The roof was completed with a lead batten detail, which was particularly important for this project, where the look of the finished ‘new’ roof had to blend with other lead roofs at the location. A lead batten detail is not only a cost effective way of replicating the heritage look of a traditional lead roof but also takes away the risk of ‘lead theft’.
All roofing components on the project, including 170mm roof insulation, are covered by the Sarnafil extended product warranty.
Jordan Dearlove, Director, Volsen Limited said: “It was very important that the new roof retained the integrity of the existing buildings which is one of the many reasons we use the Sarnafil roofing system. It combines aesthetics with ease of installation, reassurance (independently assessed longevity) and its renowned pedigree in both the commercial and home building sectors. ”
A project that ‘pooled together’ the high specification Sarnafil membrane with the expertise of the team at Volsen. An Olympic combination!
