A single-ply membrane is a single-layer water-proofing sheet that is comprised of a synthetic polymer. It is sealed at the joints with heat, adhesive, or mechanical means, and it can be adhered, mechanically fixed, or ballasted into flat, pitched, or green roofs.
While this can be installed on any roof, single-ply membrane falls under our flat roofing services. They are lightweight, durable, flexible, cost-effective, and quick and simple to install. They are an increasingly popular choice, especially on new builds, and they are 100% safe.
Gutters, Soffits & Fascias
Many property owners don’t give a second thought to their gutters, soffits, and fascias, but these are actually an extremely important aspect of any roofing structure. While they are aesthetically pleasing, they play a huge role in protecting the roof and shielding the exterior surface from the elements.
They prevent water ingress into the building by draining it away, so it is important to keep your gutters, soffits, and fascias in good condition. We can help you clean and maintain these, or we can install brand new gutters, soffits, and fascias, which are available in many colours.
Flat Roof Cleaning & Maintenance
If you don’t properly maintain your flat roof, issues can arise. These issues range from dampness and rot to ponding water, clogging, and membrane damage. Additionally, if the roof isn’t cleaned regularly, it can soon start to deteriorate.
Debris such as leaves, branches, and more can affect any flat roofing system, and bird dropping are especially corrosive, so your roof needs to be cleaned regularly. At The Flat Roofing Company, we can help you maintain and clean your flat roofing system.
Roof Leak Detection
It can be difficult to detect leaks in a flat roof, despite the size of the roofing system. We can help you with this through our electronic integrity testing. This is a process that tracks the flow of safe electrical voltages over the water-proofing surface and into the construction underneath.
We use two forms of leak detection at The Flat Roofing Company – low voltage (wet) and high voltage (dry). Our team will advise you as to which system is best for the situation and your roof before proceeding.
If you wish to increase the amount of natural light entering your property, a skylight is a great option. These are windows that are installed on your roof, and they allow direct natural light to flood a room. We can supply and install a wide range of skylights, so there will be an option to suit your property. These can be installed in existing roofing systems, or we can include them as part of a new installation.
At The Flat Roofing Company, we have a modern, safe, and non-invasive way to inspect any roofing system – drone surveys. Physically climbing onto a roof is dangerous, and this can actually cause damage accidentally. With a drone survey, however, we don’t need to climb onto the roof to inspect it.
Our drone will thoroughly survey the roofing structure, providing video feedback to our team, so we can see any issues with your roof. Working this way lowers the risk for everyone involved, and it is actually cost-effective too, with a drone survey only costing £99. You can expect to receive comprehensive results from the survey.
