Specialist Flat Roof Services in Havering

Flat roofs offer a cost-effective way to put a roof over your head. Less expensive than pitched roofs and easier to install, flat roofs are perfect for just about any home maintenance project. But just because they’re cheaper doesn’t mean they’re less stylish. In fact, flat roofs have become quite fashionable in recent years.

If you’re considering a flat roof for your property it’s vital that it’s installed correctly. Choose the wrong contractor and your brand new flat roof might not be looking brand new for very long. It might not be effective against the elements either.

Havering Roofing Company provides professional and dependable flat roof installation in Havering and the surrounding areas. Our experienced flat roof fitters will ensure that your new roof is perfectly installed and ready to fend off the elements.

As with any other type of roof, a flat roof cannot simply be left to its own devices, at least not for eternity. You can never be sure when the roof will sustain damage. It’s good to know then that we’ve also got you covered when it comes to flat roof maintenance and repair.

Flat Roof Installation

If you’re looking for help with flat roof installation in Havering, Havering Roofing Company provides an experienced service. Our flat roof fitters are dedicated to installing the perfect roof for your big or small project.

At Havering Roofing Company we specialise in Mineral Felt Roofing. Mineral felt roofing is sometimes referred to as:

Torch-on flat roofing
Torch-on felt roofing
Hot bitumen flat roofing
Pour and roll application flat roofing
Hot mop roofing
Three layer felt roofing
Built-up three layer felt roofing

Thanks to its massively improved performance, torch-on felt has largely replaced the older styles of flat roofing materials. Indeed these roofing systems are now so effective that some manufacturers believe their products will last for more than 20 years. However, if you want a flat roof that comes with an exceptionally long lifespan, look no further than the new EPDM Rubber roofing system.

EPDM rubber roofing systems have taken the UK flat roofing market by storm over the last few years, and with a life expectancy of over 40 years it’s easy to see why. Moreover this material is stronger and has better thermal performance than any other roof covering, a fact that has lead to its use in other countries since as far back as the 1960s.

All of our flat roof systems are ideal for garages, conservatories, porches, home extensions, retail units, commercial business premises, and more.

Our flat roof fitting service comes complete with a 10 year guarantee on workmanship. Furthermore, our flat roofs come with a 20 year guarantee too. Find out more

Flat Roof Maintenance & Repair

If you’re experiencing problems with your existing flat roof, Havering Roof Company is equally as happy to help you with repair work. We have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to flat roof repair and have all the tools necessary to take care of your problems quickly and without fuss.

Our flat roof repair service includes:

Leak repairs
Crack restoration
Water ponding
Solar protection

Flat roofs are specifically designed with a slight pitch to help rainwater flow into the guttering and drainage system. When an outlet or drain is blocked, or if it fails for some other reason, storm water can collect around that area. Over time, with each passing deluge, the weight of the rainwater will cause the roof cover to bend, thus allowing a bigger puddle to form. Each time this pool forms more weight is applied to the structural system causing more bending, producing an even bigger puddle, then more weight, until the structure cannot take any more weight.

Another issue affecting older style flat roofs is caused by the repeated warming and cooling of the roof by the sun. Over time this process causes micro-cracks to appear in the surface of the felt. These micro-cracks eventually worsen and water damage is inevitable. The early application of solar protection can add years to the effective life of your roof.
