Product of the Week - Acrypol +
This is a waterproof roof coating with fibres and is fantastic for coating over old lead-work that's leaking. It is applied using a paintbrush and is a simple way to protect flat roofs.

Q. I've had a small local firm asking if I'd like my roof cleaned and painted. They did the house next door about 18 months ago and it looks a really good job. I was thinking of replacing my old roof tiles but this form say painting them with Acrypol could give them another 10 years.
A. MY old neighbour had it done and it was a big improvement, and they fixed all the broken roof tiles and ridge tiles. It was a pretty serious roof overhaul and it will definitely add to the life of the roof.

Q. I need to repaint a bay windows lead roof. What primer can I use?
A. Lead is not supposed to be painted as it expands and contracts a lot and paint does not last. I would rub patination oil into it using steel wool. If you want to paint the lead for aesthetic reaosns, then use a Hammerite metal primer. If you're painting because of a leak, use Acrypol+.

Q. The plastic coating on my corrugated steel garage roof is starting to peel off. Is there a paint for both the plastic and steel?
A. I use a product called Acrypol-plus for flat roofs. There is also a product called Acrypol Metal-Kote, for metal and plastic-coasted roofs.
Shufquat Shah - Category Manager / Building Materials - Wickes
"Following my visit to the Wimbledon store on their Trade Day (29th July) I wanted to feedback on the Acrypol stand and Charles in particular."
"The store was humming with activity outside but my arrival was later in the day so the majority of the Trade suppliers had left or were packing up their stands inside the store."
"I was greeted by Charles at the Acrypol stand:"
- in a prime location
- bridging the gap between the entrance and exit
- customer facing
"I greeted Charles and before I could introduce myself fully...he was away! Very passionate and oozing product knowledge. He had a very slick sales pitch with a demonstration included but consciously altered it to answer my questions. He came across as very professional and looked the part with the Acrypol hoody."
"I left Charles after completing my introduction. My feedback from the store manager on the day was that he had kept to that level of energy and had helped sell-out the stock we were holding. Communicating detail that can now be utilised by our store colleagues to continue where Charles left off."
"The only improvement we could have made was to ensure more stock was pushed through to the store in anticipation of a sales boost."
"Please thank Charles on my behalf."
"We have been very pleased with how the Acrypol + has worn."
