Colorcoat Urban® features on ITV’s ‘The Lakes’

19 August 2011 No Comment

Colorcoat Urban® was chosen as the aesthetic of choice for this luxury country house hotel, which featured on ITV’s ‘The Lakes’.

Set in the picturesque surroundings of Windermere, this beautiful property required a roofing product for a modern extension, that would compliment the surrounding building.


Mixing harmoniously with the white rendered walls and slate pitched roof, Colorcoat Urban® provided the ideal solution to the customers needs with the matt merlin finish, and neat detailing adding to the elegance and serenity associated with the premises.

Featuring on ‘The Lakes’, a popular ITV series presented by Rory McGrath, Colorcoat Urban® inevitably received a variety of enquiries in the weeks that followed, from customers looking to achieve the same aesthetic for their projects. Other examples of how Colorcoat Urban® is used to compliment a homes appearance are featured on the Colorcoat Urban® Case Studies page.

The Lakes was not the only Television programme to feature Colorcoat Urban® this year, with DIY SOS using the Urban Seam® for an extension on ‘The Big Build’ in Stoke and ‘How to…TV’ running a feature on Sustainability and Energy Efficiency, which Colorcoat Urban® lends itself to perfectly.

The Lake House project

The project illustrates the effectiveness of the Colorcoat Urban® detailing in providing a beautiful finish, from the interlinking apron detail that provides a secure link between the slate and the Urban Seam®, to the neat detailing around the large central window positioned between the low pitched duo ridge.

Ultimately the customer was looking for a product that looked fantastic at close range as well as from a distance, with the eave and verge detailing viewable from ground level and the top of the roof viewable from the surrounding woodland. This was achieved through the use of Colorcoat Urban®, and the customer was delighted with the end result.
