New Flat Roofing Dorking
The customer, Brelades Vets based in Dorking in Surrey, are expanding and require more space. A local builder had already constructed an extension to expand their current business space and improve the facilities they have on site. We was requested to go in and install a new flat roof
The approved contractor supplied and installed 60 sqm of DuoPly fleece reinforced EPDM onto the pre-prepared deck, to create a smart and practical roof covering for the new flat roof.
One of our Approved Contractors, Advanced Flat Roofing, recently installed a new garage flat roof.
The existing felt flat roof was approximately 25 years old and the customer had applied bitumen paint every year to prevent leaks but this approach had stopped working and unfortunately, the roof was now leaking.
The flat roof was 18 sqm. Firstly, the leaking felt flat roof membrane was removed. The timber slatted deck was in good condition and did not need replacing which was good news for the customer Mr H.
The roofing contractor then laid 1mm OSB deck over a slatted timber deck to create a blemish free surface. They then installed a new EPDM fleece reinforced DuoPly flat roof membrane. Lastly, they installed a lead flashing to weather proof it fully.
Our approved contractor, Advanced Flat Roofing, worked with the commissioned builder to install a 45 sqm warm deck construction new build flat roof.
The project involved installing internal box gutters for drainage, two lantern rooflights and fleece reinforced EPDM flat roofing membrane.
The customer in Dorking, Surrey had a poorly insulated flat roof which resulted in significant heat loss. The existing felt flat roof was approximately 15 years old, and it had cracked and was leaking in places.
The project involved a large joint flat roof covering three properties – with a total area of 87 sqm.
Our approved contractor, Advanced Flat Roofing, firstly had to remove the old felt roof. They then created a warm roof construction using 120mm plybacked rigid insulation.
Then a new DuoPly EPDM fleece reinforced EPDM roofing membrane was installed, along with easy to maintain new fascias and guttering, creating a smart new flat roof.
A felt membrane flat roof above a garage had been installed very badly some six years ago and was now leaking.
Our approved contractor Drew, installed a new 25 sqm flat roof.
The first step was to remove the leaking felt flat roof membrane. The timber slatted deck was in good condition and did not need replacing which was great news for customer, Mr P.
Drew then laid a 11mm OSB deck over a slatted timber deck to create a blemish free surface.
Lastly he installed a new fleece reinforced EPDM flat roofing membrane.

I have been fitting fleece reinforced EPDM for over 5 years. Previously I used to install three layer felt systems. I can honestly say fleece reinforced EPDM is far superior in terms of cleanliness, speed of installation and is far easier to carry out difficult roof details with far more confidence than felt.
