The wind is howling, tree branches flying, rain lashing against the windows. Weather warnings sound as an intense storm rips across the streets. Every homeowner worries what the tumultuous conditions could mean for their most important asset - the roof over their head. And so the question arises - is my flat roof resilient enough or will it fail catastrophically?
If you're looking to build or replace a flat roof on your property, proper construction is key to ensuring it's durable, long-lasting and problem-free. At Avant Garde Roofing, we have over 15 years experience installing high-quality flat roofs across the UK. Here's our guide on how a flat roof should be constructed for optimal performance.
Fibreglass, single-ply and kemper overlay systems are three of the most popular solutions for crafting the perfect flat roof. All three demand a great deal of expertise to get the job done right. That said, there are plenty of alternatives for homes, garages, extensions, conservatories, sheds, summerhouses and home offices, but you will not see many flat roofs in the Uk covered in tiles. Why is that?
Commercial guttering stops debris and water from damaging the property, such as erosion, water damage, flooding or staining. It also keeps rainwater and other forms of precipitation away from pathways and building entrances where customers and staff frequent.
Whether you’re nearing the completion of your first home, considering making improvements to your existing property or facing a few urgent roofing repairs, it’s crucial to do your homework on the best roofing materials and methods.
Flat roofing is an excellent option for commercial and industrial properties because it provides a clean look, quick installation and exceptional versatility.
As one of the most popular flat roofing materials for garages, conservatories, extensions and outbuildings, fibreglass roofs are strong and durable. A professionally installed fibreglass roof will last for more than 30 years, showing no signs of weakening, cracking or fading.
Flat roofs have proved to be incredibly popular in commercial and residential settings, but there are so many systems available, such as Felt. Asphalt, Fibreglass, EPDM rubber, single ply and Kemper overlay systems to name a few.
If you’re looking for an alternative roof solution for your commercial property, have you considered Flat / GRP roofing? Flat Roofs have many advantages over traditional methods. And this is highlighted further when it comes to a commercial property. So, if you’re looking for a roof that provides more durability, is relatively inexpensive and energy efficient, then read onto this article below which homes in on the benefits of a commercial flat roof solution.
With a professionally installed flat roof, you’re guaranteed fewer damage and repair costs, and though many people recognise flat roofing as a viable solution for longevity and low maintenance, it’s important to understand the average life expectancy of a flat roof. We’re regularly asked this question, and as you’ll see when you browse our various types of flat roof membranes, our warranties differ.
With the number of people looking to add value to their current homes ever-increasing, extensions have been growing in popularity. With any extension or building project, choosing the right roofing solution is critical. In the past, many people have opted for pitched roofs as they’ve been seen to be more weatherproof. However, with advancements in technology and materials, flat roofing and GRP roofing, in particular, is fast becoming a much more feasible option providing a robust and stable alternative to the costly pitched roof.
When your roof needs minor repairs, routine maintenance or a complete overhaul, it’s important to choose a professional roofing contractor. In our opinion, a good roofer (whether that is an individual or a team) will have many years of experience and heaps of talent in a particular area of roofing, but also evidence to suggest they’re extremely reliable too. So how do you go about finding a highly skilled and dependable roofer?
Fibreglass roofing, also known as GRP (glass-fibre reinforced plastic) is an extremely popular option in the UK for flat roofs – and for good reason. It’s one of the most effective roofing methods for weatherproofing roofs of all shapes and sizes, whilst it’s very low maintenance and affordable too.
As highly experienced providers of flat roofing solutions, we are in an excellent position to offer advice on the credentials you should look for in a flat roofing contractor. For something as important as a roof, you need to make sure that you’re making the right decision.
