The historic Jamaica Inn on Bodmin moor in Cornwall has outgrown the original 1750 stone structure and builders AD Williams have been commissioned to create a new extension.
The extension will house 16 new rooms and be located on the Inn’s eastern end.
When Heritage Roofing South West was contracted to apply a matching slate roof to the extension, a reliable membrane offering unrestricted compliance with BS5534:2014 was required. Therefore, 225 square metres of DuPont Tyvek Supro were applied as a robust, high-performance underlay.
Tyvek Supro is straightforward to handle has been proven to perform well after twenty years’ installation due to the material’s 170 micron functional layer.
Tyvek membrane meets all the requirements of Building Regulations (Part L & C) and also BS5534:2014, in all zones, altitudes and conditions. It provides carefully researched and clear guidelines, extensive experience and renowned service, plus the development of a calculation tool for more easily specifying membranes that comply with BS5534.
