Case Studies


Linton Mead Primary School

Langley was commissioned to carry out a roof condition survey for a school which had suffered leaks to its three roofs for over 20 years. The resulting specification included innovative design to resolve a range of problems that the survey had identified.

Langley’s design and specification made the roof accessible for maintenance purposes where previously some areas could not be reached at all. The design improved the drainage by raising the height of three box gutters. It also involved the diversion of internal rainwater outlets to drain externally, making them easier to maintain.

The school had previously suffered from the theft of lead from the old rooflight surrounds, which exacerbated the problem with water leaking in to the classrooms. The new scheme uses lead-free products.

Durable Contracts (Roofing) Limited, a Langley Approved Contractor, carried out the work to a very high standard, during term time. They carefully managed the project timings to ensure there was no impact on the learning environment, and completed it three weeks ahead of schedule.

The pitched sections of the roof proved a technical challenge for the contractors, which they overcame with skill and care.

The school was delighted with the work, and now has the reassurance that the roofs are protected by Langley’s independent insurance backed guarantee for 20 years.
