New Flat Roof Rudgwick, West Sussex

The existing flat roof covered the front of the customer’s garage and entrance porch on there property in Rudgwick. The flat roof membrane was felt and had started to leak in the garage section. The customer wanted the flat roof membrane replaced with a high quality, long lasting alternative so the single-ply DuoPly fleece reinforced EPDM new flat roofing membrane fitted the bill perfectly.

The approved contractor removed and disposed of the existing flat roof membrane and deck. The existing flat roof was insulated using a cold roof construction so no additional insulation was required.  They then installed a new structural deck and installed the DuoPly EPDM single ply fleece reinforced new flat roof membrane.  Finally, they installed the black metal edge trims and replaced some uPVC guttering to the main house which was also leaking.

New flat roof Horsham

The customer had had an extension built at the rear of their period Victorian property in Horsham, West Sussex. The architect had designed a modern box shaped extension with external Cedar cladding, new flat roof with flat glass rooflights and grey colour bi-folding doors and windows.  He also wanted a modern flat roof membrane to complement the sleek design so the DuoPly fleece reinforced membrane was perfect for the job. As this was a new flat roof extension, the construction had to comply with the current building regulations of a warm roof. This is to ensure that moisture and condensation are kept at bay.

New Flat Roof Redhill

New Flat Roof Redhill

A popular town located in the London commuter belt, Redhill is a vibrant mix of period and modern housing. Growth was largely due to the coming of the railways and its popularity as a preferred place to live over the years is evident in some of the most stunning period properties you’ll find – Redhill boasts a significant amount of nationally listed buildings, including Grade II*. Today, surrounded by a network of fast roads and motorways, Redhill is an attractive town both for its accessibility and the period properties it offers.

New Flat Roof RedhillNaturally, these types of properties can come at a price and space can sometimes be the compromise, especially in terraced and semi-detached homes, but the ability to extend the back of a property can easily give a home a completely new lease of life.

Flat roof extensions can work sympathetically with older and period properties. The key to this is essentially the choice of stocks and roof cover. And an EPDM roof membrane is the perfect complementary solution for any period property – with a slate grey appearance it will blend effortlessly with your roof tiles. Unlike the more traditional choice of felt, EPDM will also be durable for years to come. Our approved contractors provide a 20-year warranty on each and every EPDM roof – that’s how confident we are about its superior qualities – but we know that EPDM has been proven to continue to be effective for over 50 years, both from laboratory testing and ‘real’ evidence from installations all over the world.

So if you’re planning an extension or need to replace the roofing system on an existing extension, now is the time to find out more about EPDM! Call us for details of your local approved roofing contractor to arrange a visit and no-obligation quote.

Installing a DuoPly EPDM new flat roof Cobham

For a New Flat Roof Cobham, call A R Systems.  Cobham is an ideal base for anyone commuting to work. With easy access to the A3, M25 and fast trains into London, Cobham offers the best of both worlds – great for work and even better for enjoying everything the Surrey countryside has to offer. It’s no surprise then that Cobham has expanded in recent years with much new housing being built.

Naturally, property developers over the last 20-30 years have had to make limited space work as hard as possible, ensuring that every square foot of available building land is fully utilised. This often means that modern properties are built with attached garages, responding to the ever-increasing demand for parking space by home owners with two or more cars.

Generally built with a flat roof, these garages are great until the original roofing system begins to degrade, requiring ongoing repairs or a complete replacement. It’s an expense that most home owners would rather do without, but ongoing leaks can cause far greater damage and even more expense.

If you know you need a new flat roof system for your garage then now is the time to find out more about DuoPly EPDM. It’s THE roofing membrane to replace more traditional materials such as felt. DuoPly EPDM isn’t new – it was developed back in the sixties and has been used successfully all over the world – but it’s only now becoming popular in the UK.

And even better, DuoPly doesn’t cost the earth to install because there is less labour time involved. Plus the approved contractors can install all year round without having to wait for a dry day with no risk of rain – they’ll probably appreciate a cuppa every now and then though!

With winter fast approaching and more rainy days ahead, isn’t it time you checked the condition of your flat roof? When you get in contact with us we’ll arrange for your local approved roofing contractor to inspect your roof and provide a no-obligation quote.

New Flat Roof Southwater

 

New Flat Roof Southwater

A large village in the Horsham district of West Sussex. Southwater has become increasingly popular, close to towns such as Horsham and Crawley. Perfectly located for trips into the country and an easy run to the coast – what’s not to like! Significant investment in Southwater since 2006 has also made it an attractive area to settle and recent housing developments has ensured to increase the population of the local area.

Single-storey extensions and attached garages are very evident in Southwater. They are a modern solution to the demands of 21st Century living. Yet for all their mod cons, many of these modern properties suffer from leaking flat roofs and constantly need repair. The demand for new flat roof Southwater has risen greatly in the previous months.

And of course, at this time of year there is a tendency to start looking a little more closely at our fuel bills and finding ways to make our homes more heat efficient. Roofing and good insulation is one of the most significant ways in which you can cut fuel bills. That’s why, if you need to replace your flat roof system, we highly recommend that you consider DuoPly EPDM.

Yes, you may well wonder what it is – after all, felt roofing would probably be the obvious choice, but DuoPly EPDM is superior for many reasons, including energy efficiency. Its dark colour is perfect for our climate, absorbing any available heat. But also, with good insulation EPDM will help you reduce you energy bills because there is less chance of warm air escaping. So being able to turn down your heating thermostats a few notches has to be a rather attractive thought, especially as we prepare for the cold winter months.

With an EPDM flat roof on your extension, period properties in Cranleigh will stay weatherproof

New Flat Roof Cranleigh

Cranleigh is one of those Surrey villages that offers something for everyone. Good transport links, close to a busy and thriving town, and a wonderful array of properties in which to make a home. Cranleigh can trace its roots back to the 1100s – it’s believed that its name derives from crane breeding grounds located at Vachery – but growth really started in the 1800s with the development in transport links, first canals, then railway and roads. The legacy of those boom development years is beautiful period properties that are always so desirable.

Of course, desirable as they are, a Victorian semi doesn’t always have quite enough space and, when moving costs can be so prohibitive, extensions can often be an ideal compromise. The key to any type of extension, but especially one with a flat roof, is to ensure that it’s weatherproof – undoubtedly, not all of them are, either because of build quality or through wear and tear of the felt roof covering.

Victorian property in Cranleigh

With the change in weather we are now experiencing, it’s typical to start noticing leaks. So that means towels and buckets at the ready and mental note to call a roofer in the Spring once the weather improves sufficiently to remove and replace the roof membrane – or not?

EPDM has changed the way that roofing contractors work. Weather has no adverse affect on EPDM and the speed at which it can be fitted – without any compromise on quality – means successful installations year round. A felt roofer may panic the minute a rain cloud appears, there are no such worries when working with EPDM. Which is great news for home owners – instead of enduring months of leaks and potential long-term damage to brickwork and a need to redecorate, with an EPDM roof system your extension can be watertight as soon as you want.

So for a new flat roof in Cranleigh, all it takes is a quick call to A R Systems. We’ll put you in touch with your nearest approved contractor who will arrange a visit to your home and a no-obligation cost estimate.
