Flat-Roofing Materials

There are three main types of flat roof coverings that are favoured in Bristol and we are experts at applying all of them:

  • Traditional roofing felt is reliable, cost-effective and lasts around 15 years. It’s the ideal low-budget roofing material for structures like garden sheds, summerhouses or even garages and home extensions, and can be torched on, stuck with adhesive or simply nailed on.
  • EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) synthetic rubber roofing is by far the most aesthetically pleasing, long-lasting and efficient flat roofing material, suitable for everything from covering the garage to a commercial warehouse. It is glued to the decking, its elasticity allowing it to cover the roof structure seamlessly.
  • GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) roofing – also known as fibreglass roofing – also stands the test of time and is extremely durable, withstanding extremes in temperature and anything the elements can throw at it. It is applied in the form of a liquid resin onto a roof deck base made of 18mm OSB Board, then topped with fibreglass matting for reinforcement. Once cured the resin/matting layer can be finished with a coloured UV resistant topcoat.

The Structure of a Flat Roof

No roof can function if it is completely flat, which is why according to (British Standard) BS6229 a roof has to be designed to have a slope of 10 degrees or less to the horizontal – simply to allow for water run-off.

We are able to construct flat roofs for new structures with the perfect fall, using firring strips to create the required slope, with a cold or warm roof deck made out of chipboard or plywood.

We aim to provide our customers with a flat roof in Bristol that will last a lifetime and beyond, as long as it is kept in good repair and properly maintained. Modern technology and construction methods means that the bad reputation that flat roofs once suffered for being leaky and problematic no longer applies. It’s also important that flat roofing is installed by qualified, experienced roofers.

We can even install a flat roof that is watertight enough to be used as a “green roof” or a “living roof” in Bristol, designed to accommodate a layer of soil on which to grow plants.
