Flat Roof Guildford
Our roofers in Guildford also carry out flat roof installations, as well as replacing existing worn ones. We believe our wide range of roofing services, is what makes us one of the leading roofing companies in Surrey.
Flat roofs are a popular choice for commercial properties where aesthetics are not as important but cost and durability is. Flat roofs generally have a pitch between 3 and 10 degrees which means they take up less space, both above and below the roof, allowing additional room for things like heating and cooling systems or solar systems that commercial properties often use. There is also less surface area so less money is spent on roofing materials. Flat roofs also are generally considered more durable than a pitched roof although there is a risk of water pooling if not correctly installed.
While a flat roof can be made of any of the standard roofing materials such as slate, cement and clay, they are typically made of metal panels such as corrugated steel, aluminium and iron which is faster and simpler to install and more cost effective. As with a any other roofing material there will still be the requirement for the membrane below the roof to provide additional water resistance.
We also repair any kind of flat roof, always ensuring that each installation is installed at a slight angle to prevent water pooling and assist rainwater to run off the edge of the roof, which is essential to ensuring that there is no water build-up on your roof which would cause to damp patches, mould and general decay of your roofing area. Fat roofs should be inspected on a semi-annual basis or if there has been an excessive amount of rain to ensure there is no build up of water and to check if there are any blisters or cracks in the seams that could cause leaks and issues down the line.
Our Guildford roofers are experienced at repairing and installing a selection of these types of systems, and we offer a wide selection of the latest materials.
Our newly installed flat roofs should remain trouble free for over 30 years, while many older flat roofs can become problematic, causing leaks which in turn cause mould, rotting wood and widespread damage to brickwork and plaster.
So if you are looking for high quality flat roof installation, and want to ensure that is is done correctly at the best possible price, then we're here to help.
