Client Brief and Design

“The roof was leaking continuously in multiple areas, and we needed a quick and safe waterproofing solution with quiet installation to ensure the safety and continuity of education for the children in the school.” Says specialist building consultant working in partnership with the school, E3 Cube Ltd.

Our technical team agreed that to meet the client brief requirements, the best option would be Caltech METcoat, a low odour, cold-applied liquid membrane, which could be applied in just two coats to form a seamless durable membrane with up to 20 years of waterproof protection.

Leon Ferguson, Area Technical Manager – North West, “We wanted to avoid any roof waste by preserving the metal sheet roofing with the Caltech METcoat coating system and the low odour option ensured there was no disruption to learning.”


We have deep-rooted relationships with our registered contractors, and we are always pushing to continually set high standards in the Education sector.


Leon Ferguson, Area Technical Manager – North West adds, “Time was of the essence as the cold winter weather was fast approaching. The METcoat system was an ideal solution because it is very quick to install once the detailing and reinforcement is complete. We were able to turn the job around in just under 10 weeks from specification to completion.”


As part of the Alumasc Roofing service we offer transparent quality checking and timely site reporting. We are always on-site to assist with any difficulties or issues during or after the installation. Almost all projects come with their challenges but a roofing supplier’s ability and willingness to tackle them in
collaboration with the client and contractor is of key importance to Alumasc Roofing.

Sustainable Benefits

At the end of the system’s lifecycle, only the renewal of the topcoat will be necessary, with no need to strip and dispose of any existing membrane.
