Recent projects – leaking garage flat roof in Westhumble, near Dorking in Surrey

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.

Traditional flat roofs in Horsham, West Sussex would benefit from EPDM flat roof replacement

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.
