The most common flat roof problem is either straight forward leaking roofs or a water catchment area causing unnecessary weight on the flat roof as the water gathers increasing pressure on the roof members. Flat roof felt or bitumen have a limited life span due to the typical weather conditions in the UK especially during the wetter months of the year.
Flat roofs are known to need repairing during their lifetime and our team can help you with this. We support all areas of flat roofing repair. We can help with any feltwork repair or replacement. We can also apply a range of rubberised flat roofing coating plus liquid aluminium solar reflective coverings.
If your flat roof is near the end of its lifetime you have several options. Replace the roofing with a similar roof or look at a replacement pitched roof.
The GRP system (Glass-fibre, Fibre-glass)
GRP, (Glass-fibre, Fibre-glass) is a system which is now becoming popular within domestic and commercial sectors. It’s stunning finishes have left customers with the satisfaction of having a hardwearing waterproof finish which will stand up to the elements for a minimum of 20 years.
GRP has been used in the construction of boat hulls for the past 50 years and therefore its waterproofing properties are unchallenged. A 10-year insurance backed warranty is provided with all domestic installations.
Many of our GRP systems are BBA approved and each new roof is laid onto a new timber deck with an estimated life span of at least 30 years, compared to an expected 5 years for a felt roof. A range of attractive hard-wearing decorative wear-courses are available for balconies, walkways and roof terraces.
