Dryseal Heritage

St John's South Aisle Church with Dryseal Flat Roof

Heritage roofing projects – be it ensuring a finish which is sympathetic to the style of structure or to increase security by minimising the risk of lead theft – can be tricky with conventional products.  Fortunately, Dryseal isn’t conventional. It offers a versatile solution for heritage roofing which lends itself to projects which require intricate detailing, compatibility with differing substrates and an effective lead replacement or copper replacement.

Designed for flat and low-pitched roofs, Dryseal is manufactured from high-grade polyester resins and glass reinforcement (AKA fibreglass or GRP) functioning as a single ply membrane. It is produced in the UK and serves as an ideal alternative to lead, as it doesn’t attract thieves and is far more cost-efficient.

Unlike traditional wet lay GRP systems, Dryseal is manufactured as a pre-cured kit using sophisticated processes in controlled factory conditions. This kit, containing preformed component trims and flat sheeting, is quickly and easily installed on-site to form the roof membrane for heritage roofing.
