Why a DuoPly EPDM new flat roof is perfect for period properties in Guildford, Surrey

The county town of Guildford has a very large number of Victorian and Edwardian properties of red brick and/or flint construction with lovely period features, including sash windows, gable fronted roofs, adjoining box gutters and original slate roofs.

Typical Victorian properties in Guildford, Surrey

A common addition to many smaller period properties is a new flat roof extension. Mid terrace and semi detached Victorian properties were traditionally only 2 bed and 2 reception rooms and often prove too small for modern family living. Flat roof extensions are typically constructed in red brick to match the original property walls with a felt or similar material flat roof. The real challenge is to make these modern additions blend in with the existing building.

The DuoPly fleece reinforced EPDM roofing membrane is the perfect flat roofing solution for period properties. The slate grey colour blends beautifully with the existing period construction.

Another great use for the DuoPly EPDM  roofing system is for lining existing roof box gutters between properties. With a proven life span of in excess of 50 years, it’s a far more cost effective solution than lead and also as it has no scrap value meaning no concerns  over potential theft which is so sadly becoming common place these days.
