Flat roof replacement in Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey

You may have noticed that there has been a significant upsurge in the flat roofing industry;  largely because flat roof systems can be more flexible, cost-effective and long-lasting. It depends also on what type of project you have in front of you.  R&D Roofing is extremely experienced in installing flat roof systems according to our customers specifications and requirements. We carry out both domestic and commercial projects, large and small.

These days, it is possible to replace existing felt or bituminous roofs with other flat roof systems such as Single ply or EPDM. R&D Roofing are fully trained and approved installers and have over 27 years of experience installing, replacing and repairing flat roofs. The roofing services we provide range from complete refurbishments, or replacements, to overlays on existing roof systems with new single ply membranes.

Before and after a flat roof replacement

Before the job

Here you can see the roof is in serious need of a roof replacement. The felt has cracked and blistered due to different weather systems taking their toll over the years and is at risk of further leakage if its not replaced.

Prepping the flat roof

Before we could add our own flat roof solution, we had to remove any old insulation and firrings from the previous roof to give us a clear work space. We replaced the firrings and boarded over, allowing us to move on to the next part of the job.

Installing the roof insulation

We placed a layer of insulation under the OSB as the customer wanted a warm roof system to help keep their house insulated and to cut down on their heating costs. To find out more about our insulation and how it could benefit you, please visit our warm roof construction page for more details.

Laying down the EPDM with adhesive

Finally, we added our adhesive to the OSB and laid down the EPDM rubber sheet. Our EPDM flat roof solutions have a guarantee of up to 20 years and a life span of 50 years plus which is a great alternative to felt roof systems.

Finished the job

As you can see, the new EPDM flat roof system has been installed and has a lovely look and feel to it. If you’d like a free quote on a flat roof replacement or you have any questions at all, please give Richie or Kim a call today and they’d be happy to help you.
