Badgers Court Apartments, Macclesfield


Aquashield High Build with fibres

PR Hillditch

The Challenge
Britannia Aquashield High Build roof coating with fibres was selected to waterproof the deteriorating roof of Badgers Court in Tytherington, Macclesfield, a prestige apartment development in a highly desirable location.

The 800 metre square painted asphalt apartment roof was generally failing, in particular around the skylight windows, which were starting to leak.

The Solution
Aquashield’s one-coat protection for flat roofs, pitched roofs and gutters was approved by the Bagder Court Management Committee after the submission of a detailed analysis by Britannia’s Technical Department. Established over twenty five years ago, Britannia are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of high-performance coating systems.

Once all loose or flaking material had been removed, the roof was lightly power washed and allowed to dry. Both reinforcing scrim and easi-stick scrim (EPDM) were then used around the skylights and other upstands prior to the application of Aquashield high performance coating with fibres (coverage rate 1kg per m²).

The Benefits
The project was completed in just one month, providing the apartments with an extremely durable roof coating with a life expectancy of over ten years. Aquashield is available in grey, black and solar-reflective white.

Aquashield is a solvent-based coating that can be applied all year round, even in damp conditions.
