Flat Roofing Services

Our Flat Roofing Specialists encompass a range of solutions tailored to the unique needs and challenges of flat or low-slope roofs. These services are essential for ensuring the durability, performance, and longevity of flat roofs across various types of buildings, including commercial, industrial, and residential structures.

Here is an overview highlighting key aspects of flat roofing services:

Flat Roofing Installations

The installation process for flat roofs requires specialized knowledge and materials to ensure proper water drainage and durability. Common materials used in flat roofing include EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin), PVC (polyvinyl chloride), modified bitumen, and built-up roofing (BUR) layers. Our Flat Roof Specialists assess the building’s structure to choose the most suitable material and installation technique.

Maintenance

Regular maintenance is crucial for extending the lifespan of a flat roof. Maintenance services include cleaning debris, checking for and sealing leaks, ensuring proper drainage, and inspecting the roof’s surface for wear and tear.

Proactive maintenance helps prevent minor issues from escalating into major problems, saving building owners significant repair costs over time.

Repair

Flat roofs are prone to specific issues such as ponding water, blistering, cracking, and leaks. Repair services focus on promptly addressing these problems to restore the roof’s integrity.

Techniques vary depending on the damage and may involve patching leaks, reapplying surface treatments, or replacing sections of the roofing material.

Waterproofing

Waterproofing is a critical service for flat roofs to prevent water ingress, which can lead to structural damage, mould growth, and insulation problems.

Waterproofing options include liquid-applied membranes, bituminous coatings, and single-ply sheet membranes. These solutions create a seamless barrier against water, ensuring the roof’s durability against weather elements.

Inspection and Assessment

We offer inspection and assessment services to evaluate the condition of a flat roof.

These inspections are essential for identifying potential issues early on and planning for repairs, maintenance, or replacement. Inspections typically cover the roof’s surface, drainage systems, edge details, and penetration points to ensure all components are in good condition.

Replacement and Re-roofing

When repairs and maintenance can no longer extend a flat roof’s life effectively, replacement or re-roofing becomes necessary.

This process involves removing the old roofing material and installing a new roof system. We consider factors such as building use, climate, and budget when recommending replacement options to ensure the new roof meets the building’s needs.

Energy Efficiency & Sustainability

Modern flat roofing services also focus on energy efficiency and sustainability. Reflective roofing materials, green roofs, and the integration of solar panels are options that not only enhance a building’s energy efficiency but also contribute to environmental sustainability.

These solutions can reduce cooling costs and carbon footprints, making them an attractive choice for eco-conscious building owners.
