Believe it or not, you are the second person who has asked this today! And I do get this question a few times a year, and until now, I've never found a solution...

Coach Trimmers used to do loads of this kind of work, but roofs like these are not that common these days, nor are trimmers, and very few of them are interested in this kind of work.

But Barton & Son will do it.

For the record (because other people will be looking for this answer), The PVC roof cannot be repaired, much like interior PVC, leather or fabric cannot actually be repaired. However, it can be replace. In this case, I'm told that you are likely to need a whole new roof covering, which will be about £800.

Malcom at Barton & Son tells me that he used to do about 2 per week at one time, and he was doing it for Rolls-Royce. So he is definitely the man for the job... although the company is a fair way away from us, we have seen their work and it is first class... we cannot recommend them highly enough.


P.S. I'd love to know how you got on.

such as PVC roofs on Rolls-Royce and Limosines, and the repair and refitting of convertible hoods.
