The majority of properties in the Horsham, West Sussex and surrounding area were built between the 1960-1980’s, and many have modern flat roof extensions and garages.
Most of these flat roofs have been constructed using traditional felt material and will have been repaired and replaced up to as many as four times in this period. At a significant cost and upheaval to the property occupants.
The DuoPly fleece reinforced EPDM flat roofing system with a proven life span of in excess 50 years is the perfect choice for flat roofs coming up for renewal. Our DuoPly flat roofing system is a more durable and long lasting flat roofing solution and is available with 20 year insurance backed guarantees (ask the appoved contractor for details).
Due to the the age of the houses in the Horsham area, most of the timbers fascia if not already replaced are also due for renewal. It is good practice to install a new PVCU fascia or refurbishing the existing one, at the same time os replacing the flat roof due to the very long life span of the DuoPly flat roofing system. All finishing trims and drip edge details are fixed into these fascia boards, so changing the boards at a later date although possible is more difficult.

The county town of Guildford has a very large number of Victorian and Edwardian properties of red brick and/or flint construction with lovely period features, including sash windows, gable fronted roofs, adjoining box gutters and original slate roofs.
Typical Victorian properties in Guildford, Surrey
A common addition to many smaller period properties is a new flat roof extension. Mid terrace and semi detached Victorian properties were traditionally only 2 bed and 2 reception rooms and often prove too small for modern family living. Flat roof extensions are typically constructed in red brick to match the original property walls with a felt or similar material flat roof. The real challenge is to make these modern additions blend in with the existing building.
A EPDM membrane flat roof with a period property
The DuoPly fleece reinforced EPDM roofing membrane is the perfect flat roofing solution for period properties. The slate grey colour blends beautifully with the existing period construction.
Another great use for the DuoPly EPDM roofing system is for lining existing roof box gutters between properties. With a proven life span of in excess of 50 years, it’s a far more cost effective solution than lead and also as it has no scrap value meaning no concerns over potential theft which is so sadly becoming common place these days.
