Mastic Asphalt

  • St Paul’s Cathedral project in London. Mastic asphalt was first laid in 1906 on the Stone Gallery that circles the Cathedral dome and it provided a remarkable 111 years’ weatherproof protection before it required refurbishment.

  • St Paul’s Cathedral - work carried out by leading MAC member Sussex Asphalte. When the mastic asphalt on the Stone Gallery was renewed, approximately 20 tonnes of the original mastic asphalt was saved and stored on-site to allow it to be re-used again in the future. Just nine months later it was re-melted, sieved and used again for a further mastic asphalt waterproofing project at St Paul’s Cathedral - this time on the North Courtyard. Pictures here show the work on the Stone Gallery.

  • Mastic asphalt can be found on Westminster Cathedral.

  • An impressive roof refurbishment project has been completed at the Church of St Mary and All Saints in Fotheringhay, Peterborough - a 15th century, Grade I listed building which was the winner of the Mastic Asphalt Council (MAC) Challenge Trophy Award back in 2018. Carried out during one of the coldest winters on record, by MAC contractor BCC Asphalt (www.bccasphalt.co.uk), the project was fully completed within just 14 days. The church is situated at the top of a hill and the roofing applicators had to contend with extreme wind and very cold temperatures.

  • Mastic asphalt was originally applied to the roof of the National Museum Cardiff in 1910 when it was first erected and it provided an impressive 109 years’ weatherproof protection before requiring a full roof refurbishment using mastic asphalt applied by long-standing Mastic Asphalt Council (MAC) member Cardiff Asphalt (www.cardiffasphaltroofing.co.uk).
