Belzona Repairs Hazardous Leak on Top FTSE 100 Company Roof
Following a successful roofing application, Belzona was approached again by a top FTSE 100 company to repair and protect a leaking roof in central London.
Despite the roof, covered in a single-ply membrane, appearing to be in good condition it was found to be leaking in several places. The client, a high profile finance company, required a quick, efficient and long-lasting solution to this problem as the leak was above a plant room containing sensitive electrical equipment, making it a business critical situation.
As the area was highly populated, the client also sought a low-odour solution in order to ensure minimum disruption during application. They decided to use Belzona 3111 (Flexible Membrane) as its low odour and cold curing formulation makes it ideal for use in public and commercial locations.
The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet RPA-1. The upper level roof was cleaned and prepared before application of a fully reinforced Belzona 3111 system.
The client expressed themselves thoroughly satisfied with the application. The Project Co-ordinator said, “The contractors who carried out the works did a great job in a professional manner and we experienced no interruptions to business or complaints throughout the entire project.” He further added, “I will definitely be recommending Belzona in any future projects where their system can be utilised.”

Roofing protection with Belzona
Roof integrity can often be jeopardized by various factors such as movement during freeze-thaw cycles, physical damage, rain and adverse weather conditions. These effects can prove highly detrimental and damaging to the roof’s waterproofing capabilities.
All roofs can be compromised by these effects but flat roofs in particular can deteriorate extremely quickly. The lack of surface run-off causes this rapid deterioration as it produces a high quantity of surface water which can penetrate through the substrate. Other areas susceptible to damage include joints and seams, flashings, gutters and glazing bars as these are areas in which water can easily accumulate.
Belzona’s liquid applied membranes offer a competitive roof repair solution.
Belzona 3111 is a liquid applied, one-component roofing membrane with a water based, low odour formulation that eliminates Health and Safety issues of other traditional repairs providing a cost-effective and durable alternative.
Belzona 3111 will:
- Water and weatherproof the roof
- Simplify roofing maintenance
- Provide long-term protection – 20 years +
- Bond strongly to all types of roofing substrate
- Follow complex roof contours
- Avoid hot work and odour issues/implications
- Remain flexible in service
