Flat roofs are affordable, modern alternatives to pitched roofs. They’re most commonly built on extensions, garages and outbuildings. There are a variety of different types of flat roofs, each displaying different characteristics. Laser Roofing, local roofer for the Dorking, Reigate and wider Surrey areas, specialises in hot felt flat roofs and EPDM rubber flat roofs. On this page, we’ve explained how and why we work with these materials.
Hot Felt Flat Roofs – To create these kinds of flat roofs, a roofer builds up layers of bituminous membrane, also known as felt. This material, which is often reinforced with a polyester/glass mix, is supplied in rolls and can be applied to a roof in a variety of ways. When building felt flat roofs around Dorking, Reigate and Surrey, we’ll use the torch-on technique – which we believe is the best way to guarantee your roof is weather proof for many, many years to come. Felt flat roofs are distinctly affordable, yet still strong and durable. When properly looked after, felt roofs can easily last over 20 years.
EPDM Rubber Flat Roofs – The other material we use for the flat roofs we build around Dorking, Reigate and Surrey is EPDM rubber. This is an extremely durable material that is easy to apply, and when well-maintained boasts a longer lifespan than its felt cousin. In fact, EPDM flat roofs have been known to last over 40 years, making them an extremely cost effective investment. If you’re concerned about the environmental impact of flat roofs, know that EPDM rubber is one of the most eco-friendly and green solutions on the market. EPDM is a “cold” roofing system, meaning it uses adhesives rather than hot bitumen. They rarely need roofing repairs, but can be easily mended by a Laser roofer if something out of the ordinary were to occur, like a heavy object falling on it from height.
