Recent Projects – new flat roof in Guildford, Surrey

 

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.
