Groundworks & Roofing Specialists

A flat roof is a roof which is almost level in contrast to the many types of sloped roofs. The slope of a roof is properly known as its pitch and flat roofs have up to approximately 10° to allow the rainwater to flow into the gutters and the drains. 


There are three main types of flat roof:

Felt (mineral)

Rubber

Fibreglass


 

We take pride in the quality of our flat roofing work. Our roofers only use the finest materials and equipment and every product we install, from felt roofing and single ply membranes to slating and tiling, is guaranteed to provide reliable and effective property protection for many years to come. Our roofers will work tirelessly to get the roofing that you require installed to the highest quality.

 

A traditional felt roof is a flat roof surface that is built up using a wooden base and adding 2-3 layers of bitumous felt.These are then bonded together with heated bitumen and are subject to a finishing top coat that provdes both and attractive surface whilst helping  protect the new roof from the elements. This type of roof forms a dense and impermeable barrier to the elements.

These well-proven tough resins are the ideal economic solution for all GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) flat roofing problems - from garages to extensions, and from valley gutters to balconies. Replacing the traditional Felt roofing surface with a modern and hard wearing fibreglass matting & resin system, this product has been a bench-mark through the industry for many years, and continue to be a successful and popular product.

 

A fibreglass roof will last for many years, it may be more expensive than the felt roofing systems but they are more cost effective in the long run as they last and need little maintenance, unlike the felt roofing system.
