3M Scotchkote for a lead effect roof in Sevenoaks

The latest project that the Flat Roof Recovery Company has completed was an interesting re-roof project in a conservation area in Sevenoaks., Kent. We were asked to provide a finish that was to give the effect of the roof being covered with lead when in actual fact it was to be waterproofed using the cutting edge 3M Scotchkote Liquid Roofing System.

The roofing system was built up in layers with a CSM Fiberglass matting being added as an extra layer of reinforcement. The finished roof has received an impressive guarantee of a full 25 years. (images 1,2,3) show the Embedment coating being applied to the roof boards which have had wooden mop rolls added to give the finished flat roof the distinctive appearance of lead. Having lead on your roof can sometimes be very attractive to thieves.  If a theft occurs untold damage can be cause to the roof costing untold amounts to repair and significantly increasing insurance premiums.

The 3M Scotchkote Roofing System, when fully and professionally installed, gives the appearance of lead with the added bonus of zero value to any would be thieves. As I’m sure you can see the finished appearance of this flat roof 3M Scotchkote does indeed give a brilliant lead look finish to this roof. (images 4,5,6,7).
