New Flat Roof Guildford

This Guildford property had a 30 year old original felt roof membrane which had been overlaid with 11mm plywood deck and a non-reinforced EPDM membrane was installed about 2 years ago. The existing fascias were rotten and had not been replaced.

On one side of the roof the fascias had been covered over with the roofing membrane.  The original defective lead flashing had not been replaced but had been silicone sealed in places. The whole installation was of an extremely sub-standard quality.

The property was in Guildford and the existing garage roof was traditional felt installed onto a chipboard deck. The felt flat roofing membrane had failed and water ingress had blown the chipboard deck and rotted one roof joist. The garage fascias were in need of painting but were otherwise in good condition.

The flat roof was 18 square metres in size. The contractor carefully removed the existing ridge tiles, then removed and disposed of the existing felt membrane, chipboard deck and rotten rafter.

Next they replaced the rafter, decked the roof with 18mm OSB board and installed DuoPly EPDM fleece backed flat roof membrane.  The existing ridge tiles were re-laid and black steel edge trims were installed to the perimeter.

A new white uPVC fascia and black guttering system was installed to reduce future maintenance.

Recent projects – flat roof refurbishment near Reigate/Redhill,Surrey

One of our Approved Contractors, recently carried out a roof refurbishment on a block of flats on the Reigate/Redhill border.

The 130 sqm flat asphalt roof was over 30 years old. It wasn’t leaking but was showing signs of degradation in the form of blistering and a few cracks. The roof was very poorly insulated and there was a considerable amount of heat loss through it. As it was a large area above eight flats, it was decided that the roof should be refurbished.

Firstly, 150mm ply-backed Cellotex was installed onto the existing asphalt roof. Then DuoPly fleece reinforced EPDM was installed.

And finally, new lead flashing was installed to weather proof around the chimney stacks.
