R.S.M Roofing of Bristol go above and beyond just keeping a sound roof over your head. We have the knowledge, skills and experience to undertake various niche, specific tasks associated with roofing that many run-of-the-mill roofing companies are unable to offer.
Lead, for example, is one of the world’s oldest and most durable building materials and its malleable properties make it perfect for covering roof valleys, parapets, porches and dormers, and providing waterproof flashings. We’re experts at traditional roofing leadwork in Bristol, using this sustainable, recyclable material to make roofs watertight on homes across the city, particularly listed and heritage buildings.
We have the expertise to lay any and all of the many types of roof tiles available in the UK.
Tiling a roof is not as easy as it looks. The method depends on the type of tiles being laid – for instance plain tiles have to be double-lapped, while interlocking tiles are easier to lay as long as the intricate preparation and measuring is spot on.
Roofs don’t stand alone – they are often pierced by stone or brick structures like chimney stacks and flues giving vent to fumes from the interior of the house, or surrounded by decorative or protective parapets topped with coping.
Over time the mortar in these structures can deteriorate and stones or bricks become dislodged with the onslaught of wind, rain and frost leading to water ingress or rendering the structure unstable.
That’s why R.S.M Roofing include chimney, coping and parapet renovation work in their skill set. We can repoint and even rebuild damaged chimneys and other stone or brickwork on the roof, including repairing or replacing broken chimney pots.
The key to a sound, healthy roof is keeping it watertight, and we’re competent to do whatever it takes to achieve this no matter what state your roof is in.
We’re all on a quest to introduce more natural light into our homes, for the health benefits, aesthetic value and to save on energy bills. As installers of Britain’s top brand of roof skylights – Velux windows – we find we’re constantly in demand to fit these precision-engineered, safety-laminated light sources into homes in Bristol.
There is a huge range of different styles and types of Velux windows, other forms of skylights, sun tunnels and roof lanterns available to choose from to brighten up your home.
The only restrictions pertain to safety, energy efficiency and fire resistance, as well as sensible considerations when it comes to positioning, regarding the size and scope of the skylight. We’ve been in the business of fitting skylights for many years, and are familiar with all the Government Planning Portal regulations regarding their installation, so we are well-placed to advise you on how and where to position Velux windows or skylights.
We are qualified and competent to undertake any and all installation and repair work related to pitched or flat roofing, including guttering and leadwork.
