Technical Support Service for New Build Projects

Supporting you to deliver compliant, appropriate, and on budget flat roof solutions

Brief and consultation

You give us your remit either at your office or on site. We will discuss the roofing project, your preferred system application, your budget and how the programme of works can be formulated.

Roof element proposal

Together we can determine which roofing system and specific build up will be optimal for each individual roof area on your new build project given the construction type, level of access and required performance.


Specification and detail design

You will receive the Bauder specification package for your project, which answers your brief and meets the needs of the building. This will include our relevant standard detail drawings and other technical calculations.


Contractor selection

The Bauder approved contractors best placed to deliver your new roof will competitively price and tender for your project. Our national network of contractors undergo a rigorous selection process and their installers are trained specifically in the application of our systems, so you are ensured an expert installation.


Installation of the roofing solution

Once the Bauder approved contractor has been appointed, a pre-contract meeting will make sure that the project delivery is well coordinated. The works are closely monitored by Bauder site technicians with regular inspections and ‘live’ time reports to ensure quality and waterproof integrity of the roof.


Sign off and guarantee

A full final inspection is completed on the works by our site technician team following rigorous approval criteria before the guarantee is issued. Our comprehensive range of guarantee packages fulfil cover requirements for the project (dependant on system/product selection). For more information contact our technical department for a sample guarantee outlining cover level, terms and conditions.
