As Bailiffe Bridge School is a heritage building Ploughcroft is always our first choice when it comes to roofing work. Their work is second to none! Unfortunately, during this year’s summer holiday, the school was targeted for lead theft. The damage done was significant and the forecast of imminent storms and heavy rain left the school in a very vulnerable position. . . .
This school community is indebted to Ploughcroft for their commitment, quality workmanship and professionalism. I strongly recommend them without any hesitation! Bailiffe Bridge School (Courtesy of Which? Trusted Traders)

Liquid Applied Flat Roofing Systems
Ploughcroft only specialise in the highest quality flat roofing systems. Warm flat roofs that are highly durable and extremely energy efficient to ensure lower energy costs.
When dealing with large, commercial areas we use SIKA Liquid Plastics. This cold applied roofing system is ideal for schools, education facilities and large commercial areas. It’s application is cold applied and causes minimal disruption.
Also ideal for walkways as the skid inhibiting surface is guaranteed for up to 20 years.
Lead work roofing is commonly used on churches, listed buildings, chimneys and bay roofs. If poor quality, thin-lead is installed it can wear away and cause leaks. However, if it is installed properly and to a high quality, it can last over 100 years.
Lead has also become an environmentally friendly option for many as much of the lead we use today is recycled and reused.
Our lead specialists are renowned for their impressive work on chimneys, bay roofs, finials and decorative projects.
Fragile Roof Upgrades
As commercial roofs get older they can start to erode, especially if roofs contain asbestos. Sheets can crack and lift, making the roof susceptible to leaking.
By upgrading an old and fragile roof, the roof becomes safer and more secure, making future building works and repairs much easier and less time-consuming. It also increases the service life expectancy of the building’s roof.
Relining and Coating Gutters
Commercial gutters can be vulnerable to a battering by the weather and often need repairing to avoid water ingress to the property. If the guttering isn’t properly maintained it can lead to very expensive and inconvenient repairs in the future.
Ploughcroft relines and coats commercial gutters in order to stop cracking and splitting. The seamless gutters we use make the gutter itself impervious to leaking and stops standing water.
Asbestos Containing Roof Structures
If you own or lease a commercial property you may be responsible for managing asbestos. When disturbed, asbestos releases harmful fibres into the air making simple commercial roof repairs very difficult for you, the property owner. That’s where we come in.
Not only are Ploughcroft expert commercial roofing contractors, but we are experienced licensed category 2 asbestos removal contractors, specialising in commercial buildings.
If you suspect there may be asbestos in your commercial building you will need to:
- Check the lease or contract to see who is responsible for asbestos,
- Use an external accredited surveyor to carry out an asbestos survey,
- Have the material analysed and keep a record,
- Carry out a health and safety risk assessment,
- Contract an experienced asbestos removal company to repair or remove any part of the building where asbestos was found.
If you don’t have a plan to deal with asbestos you could face a fine or imprisonment.
