Rubber roofing


If your house has a low-slope or flat roof, then you should consider rubber (also known as EPDM) roofing. This roofing material brings down the labor costs to minimum as compared to other roofing options and also exhibits an extraordinary durability that provides magnificent resistance to tears and abrasion.

 

Benefits of Rubber Flat Roofing:

EPDM is more enviromentally friendly as its made out of re-cycled materials

EPDM reflect heat in the summer months 

Acts as an insulator

Weatherproof - good for our variable weather conditions

Waterproof

Most are fire resistant

UV stable making them non-perishable

Easier to repair

The material is ideal for flat or low-pitched roofs

Durable

Long lasting

It can be purchased in sheets, therefore, no seams so a much better fitting

Aesthetically pleasing

Requires fitting by a professional

Cost will be more than the traditional felt roof, however, it is longer lasting so more cost effective

Built-up roofing consists of two or three layers of bitumen sheet bonded together through adhesive or hot bitumen.The bitumen is produced through the distillation of crude oil.

Reinforced bitumen sheets are manufactured using a base layer consisting of one of a number of materials including organic fibres, glass fibre or bitumen-saturated polyester, though in practice, organic felts rarely meet performance criteria.

The material is passed through a bath of molten bitumen and then coated with sand to prevent adhesion.

 

Benefits of Felt Roofing:

Economical

Used for small outbuildings and Garages

Can be fitted in a day

The underlying structure is really important

The roof needs to have a slight gradient for water to run off

The timber (use wood not chipboard) joists underneath need to be strong to withstand any sagging of the felt over the years

Felt roofing with good preparation can last for many years

It is more economical than rubber and fibreglass

The system for flat roofing Polimar Liquid Roofing (known as GRP Fibreglass Roofing) is far superior when it comes to traditional GRP Fibreglass, it looks the same but has far more benefits as it stays highly flexible throughout its life span unlike traditional GRP Fibreglass, offering a 10 – 20 year warranty direct from us.


Benefits of Fibreglass:

Tough and hard wearing

Waterproof

Lasts at least 20 years

Can be repaired if physically damaged

It can be moulded to any area 

It doesn't deteriorate at the same rate as felt roofing

Can be extended or re-furbished

Prevents illegal access

Can be tiled or used as a garden platform

Replaces lead and has no intrinsic value to thieves
