Located just eight miles south of Guildford, Cranleigh located in Surrey claims to be the largest village in England. It’s certainly grown over the last 50 years or so, and has its fair share of modern housing stock.
With space always a premium, many houses have been extended and, over the years, owners will have battled with keeping their extensions watertight. Felt roofing can last as little as 10 years and can be subject to ongoing repairs, but the introduction of EPDM means that there is a viable and superior alternative.
Used in America for over 50 years, there is plenty of proof that EPDM – a synthetic rubber roofing membrane – does its job extremely well. An added benefit is that because it is dark coloured (slate grey, which blends well with pretty much any pitched roofing material) it can help reduce energy bills, absorbing heat and, in conjunction with good insulation, reducing the demands on your central heating. It also creates fewer carbon emissions when manufactured, so is very environmentally friendly.
A DuoPly fleece reinforced EPDM flat roofing system installed by an A R Systems approved contractor comes with a 20-year warranty – that’s how much faith we have in the material. Installation is quicker, safer and cleaner than other traditional flat roofing materials – you’d be surprised by how little disruption there is – which also means a saving on labour costs.
If you need to replace or repair an existing flat roof – or are planning to build an extension or garage – we’d be delighted to provide you with a free written quotation. Contact us and we’ll put you in touch with your nearest A R Systems approved contractor.
