Laydex were briefed to assist in creating a high end roof design using a single Ply membrane that had an IAB certificate, and carried a material and labour warranty, with a finish that simulated the appearance of standing seam. This was achieved using the Renolit Alkorplan Design profile system. The effect was a standing seam roof.
The Alkordesign system guarantees fast installation, greater flexibility for slopes, valleys, and contours. It also allows for limited maintenance. The high water vapour transmission rate of the Renolit Alkorplan allows the roof to breathe, reducing the risk of condensation, and avoiding ventilation problems.
The roof was installed by local roofing contractor, Mr. Matt Ennis of SE Roofing, Staplestown, Murrintown, Co Wexford. The detailing was intricate as there was a number of changes in direction within the roof, and these were easily achieved using Alkormetal formed to create the details. Alkor flashings around the roofs were also created using the Alkormetal.
