The Majushri Buddhist Centre recently faced a critical issue with its flat roof. Strong winds had damaged the aging GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) flat roof, leading to leaks and structural concerns. A swift response from Duracoat Roofing Services proved crucial in assessing the situation and organising the job efficiently. This case study details the steps taken by the Duracoat team in choosing the best roofing system on the market, provided by Westwood Liquid Technologies, for the flat roof restoration.

Project Overview

The Majushri Buddhist Centre, a place of tranquility and worship, was confronted with a deteriorating flat roof that had endured years of wear and tear. After a recent bout of strong winds, the roof’s integrity was compromised, resulting in water ingress and other structural issues. The urgent need for repair and restoration led to the engagement of Duracoat Roofing Services.

Project Scope

The project’s objectives included:

  • Assessing the extent of damage to the flat roof.
  • Organising a rapid response to mitigate further damage.
  • Selecting and applying a durable and long-lasting roofing system.
  • Restoring the roof to its original condition to ensure the safety and comfort of the Buddhist Centre’s visitors.

Swift Response

Duracoat Roofing Services, known for its prompt and professional service, was immediately contacted by the Majushri Buddhist Centre after the damage occurred. Within hours, the Duracoat team was on-site to assess the situation.


Upon arrival, the Duracoat team conducted a thorough assessment of the damage, considering factors such as structural integrity, water ingress points, and the extent of deterioration. This evaluation allowed them to determine the appropriate course of action.

Choosing the Best System

After assessing the damage, Duracoat decided to use the Westwood Liquid Technologies roofing system. This choice was made based on the following factors:

  • Proven track record of durability and performance.
  • High resistance to weathering, UV exposure, and temperature fluctuations.
  • Seamless application, ensuring watertight integrity.
  • Minimal disruption during installation.

Job Organisation

The Duracoat team organised the project efficiently. They allocated skilled technicians and ensured that the right equipment and materials were readily available. Safety measures were also put in place to protect workers and the Buddhist Centre.

Roof Restoration in Ulverston

The restoration process began promptly and proceeded without any delays. The old GRP roofing material was removed, and the new Westwood Liquid Technologies system was applied seamlessly to the flat roof. The system adhered perfectly to the substrate, eliminating any potential leaks or weak points.


The swift response by Duracoat Roofing Services, their quick assessment, and the selection of the Westwood Liquid Technologies roofing system proved instrumental in the successful restoration of the Majushri Buddhist Centre’s flat roof. The Centre now enjoys a durable, long-lasting, and weather-resistant roofing solution, ensuring the safety and comfort of its visitors for years to come. This case study serves as a testament to the importance of professional roofing services and the use of top-tier roofing materials in the face of unexpected challenges.
