R&D Roofing installs new Warm GRP flat roof system
Trowbridge scaffolding provided a watertight and safe platform to work from.
Stonehenge Case Study
After many chats and emails back and forth the most sensible option was to make the decision to take down the decra clad pitched roof and upgrade the flat roof below to a new warm grp flat roof system.
Existing decra light weight tiles
We provided quotes for 3 different choices of roof covering –A new warm cure-it GRP flat roof system, Classicbond EPDM, or a RubberBond Fleeceback EPDM roof system, all of which we are fully trained to install. A few telephone calls and emails later and our customers were happy to go ahead with the Warm Cure-it Glass fibre Roof System
“The sky’s the limit if you have a roof over your head”
A real team effort
Stripping the pitched roof
After stripping the roof, the challenge was to pull off the decking which was in undersized 12mm plywood, stapled and glued everywhere to the joists.
Crowbars came in handy.

Testimonial – Whatcombe Brow, Stonehenge
“We had serious issues with the existing roof as it had not been watertight and 21 years of rain had done its worst. Richie and the team uncovered a nightmare. The roof had to be stripped back to rafters and a full new warm roof fitted. R& D Roofing where professional, courteous and, despite the work extending by about 2 weeks due to what they found, remained on site until completion. The finished result is extremely good and any teething issues (guttering) were dealt with quickly even though we are 1.5 hours away from their office. We picked R& D Roofing as we wanted flat roof experts and am so pleased we did.” 10/10
