Carden Primary School


After the central wing of this school building suffered extensive storm damage in early 2017 Invictus Roofing was asked to replace the roof covering at short notice. As a trusted supplier for Brighton & Hove City Council, Invictus Roofing was contracted with stripping the failing roof covering and installing a new Garland 30-year felt system in accordance with the strict specifications laid out by the manufacturer, as well as increase the insulation efficiency throughout.

This project was to be started during term time, therefore the works had to be conducted under diligent Health & Safety precautions to protect the children during school hours.

“We have just had a major roof replacement at our School carried out by Invictus Roofing. As it was carried out in term-time, we were very impressed with the contractor and the way the work was carried out. We also had SAT’s exams week during the contract, and the team was very accommodating by changing their shift pattern to suit the school. All works were carried out to a very high quality, with all areas left clean and safe for the duration of the works. We would highly recommend Invictus Roofing and would have no hesitation in using them again.”
