The installation of flat roofs is much more convenient, simpler, and cheaper than more traditional flat roofs. Providing quick and easy protection against water, moisture, insects and animals, a flat roof provides a quick and simple solution.
Aside from being simple to use and convenient to install, they are also extremely popular. The majority of flat roofing systems used by homeowners are for smaller structures, but they can also be found on larger buildings.
‘Flat roofs’ refer to roof surfaces so flat that they almost must be level. Despite the name indicating a horizontal surface, there must be a slight angle for rainwater to drain. In general, flat roofs have a slope of 1:40, though this may vary and may be as low as 1:80. The type of building depends on the site in which it is constructed.

Flat roofs tend to be the preferred choice for extension projects that are situated near existing structures. In some cases, an outdated roof system can be replaced by a new flat roof. A typical example of this is corrugated tin roofs that are no longer allowable under the current UK building code.
A flat roof is often used on structures that are not a standard part of the house. A flat roof is often found on extensions and garages, as well as on outdoor living spaces within gardens.

The EPDM and fibreglass membranes are the easiest materials for both homeowners and professionals to install. Their cost-effectiveness, combined with the fact that no special tools are needed, makes them the most economical. In contrast to torch on felt and bitumen, the installation process is straightforward and does not require special tools.
Fiberglass is the trade name for Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP). It was discovered at the end of the Second World War and since then it has been used for various applications that require lightweight, waterproof, and corrosion-resistant materials. GRPS is made of polyester resin reinforced by short glass fibres, which are woven into a mat. Chopped Strand Mat and Polyester Resin are laminated together. The finished appearance of a GRP product is beautiful as well.
We have been installing GRP / fibreglass roofs for over 30 years as a family owned and operated business. With a few quick cleanings here and there, our original roofs still look great and provide adequate protection from leaking felt-covered roofs. With our GRP Fibreglass roofs, we are always using new OSB (Oriented Strand Board) (Sterling Board), so we can confidently give 20 years of guarantee.
Over the past 25 years, we have installed GRP roofs all over Nottingham. Installing a roof without problems is what we do best. Every roof we install starts with a BBA Approved Sterling Board that guarantees years of trouble-free performance. A roof is formed from layers of materials that are bonded together to give a seam-free, leak-free finish every time, coupled with a color finish that matches your property.
We offer cost effective permanent solutions to flat roof problems for old and new buildings, all of which are backed by a 25 year warranty.
Among the most common material types for flat roofing is EPDM, which is made up of ethylene and propylene. Despite its waterproof properties, extremely toughness, and lengthening life, this membrane is extremely durable.
EPDM does not require specialized training to install, as opposed to other materials. Rubber membranes provide a life expectancy of 50 years or longer with virtually no maintenance once installed.
This rubber is made of recycled ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), which makes it a green choice. Due to its seaming unit, it is free of any noxious or poisonous chemicals released in the heat treatment of other materials like bitumen. Rubber roofing is made from a single layer of synthetic rubber to provide seamless weatherproof coverage for flat roofs.
One of the more traditional and popular methods of creating a flat roof is by using roofing felt. Traditional felt roofing, also called tar paper, is installed with hot bitumen to ensure a strong bond between the felt and the roof.
Many types of roof felt are designed to fit a range of roof types and materials. Some are made from bitumen while others are made from other materials and are either black or green. When it comes to the best roof felt, one that has a bitumen composition should last for at least 15 years considering the harsh weather sheds typically face.
Quality and thickness of the roofing felt you choose will determine how long it will last. Felt roofs are common in sheds and garages, where they provide a good level of protection. You must understand its key uses to determine whether or not it is the right system for you.
Hot bitumen was previously used to install felt roofs. As a result, this process was time-consuming and didn’t really work as a method of installation since it didn’t last very long. In the alternative and more modern technique of installing a felt roof, the felt is glued on with a torch.
Sheets are applied with a blow torch so one side becomes sticky and is then layered on. Torch-felt roofing possesses several key benefits compared to traditional methods. As well as being easy and inexpensive to install, they are more durable, lighter, and more durable. Many homeowners have found it to be an attractive option.
Felt roofing is a good option for flat roofed buildings in a variety of sectors, including residential and commercial roofs. In addition to being waterproof, it is weatherproof and very cheap to install, replace, and repair.
