Keeping your property protected from the vagaries of the British weather can be a challenge, and nowhere is it more important to make sure you keep the elements out than on your roof. Baked by the sun in summer, frozen by frost and snow in winter – and soaked by rain all year round, your flat roof has to deal with all the extremes our climate can throw at it, while ensuring you stay dry and warm.
The science of flat roofing has advanced significantly in recent years with the development of ‘single ply’ technology. While traditional felt-based and liquid rubber roofs are susceptible to UV light and changes in temperature which lead to relatively short lives – usually around 10-15 years, a single ply flat roofing solution has none of these shortcomings, and will keep the elements at bay for up to 40 years. Used for many years on commercial projects, single ply roofing is now becoming the flat roof solution of choice for discerning home-owners who want to look after their property.
A major advantage of a single ply roofing solution is that all edges and details on your roof are finished with membrane coated aluminium. Because we form these metal edges in our own workshop, we can tailor bespoke trims to exactly match the contours of even the most complex roof, providing strong and highly robust edging that will never crack, split or erode.
Having experience of using single ply products from many different manufacturers, we choose to work primarily with Renolit, which in our professional opinion is the best quality single ply solution available.
