It’s all in the Planning

We believe that failing to plan is planning to fail so we will advise you on all aspects of structural decking material and design. Before we can install any system the underlying deck must be safe, long-lasting and meet the appropriate building regulations.



Let There Be Light

We’ll also take care of all the detailing considerations such as ensuring rain water will run-off properly and that the gutters will be in the right place to catch it. Habitable parts of the house like a kitchens, bedroom or bathrooms will need fully insulating with fire-safe insulation material. You’ll be warmer and your heating bills will be smaller. And if you want to let some glorious natural light in there’s an extensive range of rooflights just waiting to brighten up your life.



Covering Up

Now we just need to decide on your covering. There’s always tried and tested bonded bituminous felt. The quality and performance of these membranes has improved over the years and are known today as Reinforced Bitumen Membranes or RBM and remain a firm favourite for many residential applications.

PVC is best suited to warm roof installations being laid directly onto the insulation material and mechanically fixed with a system of steel fasteners which is incredibly fast and efficient. Extremely durable and lightweight, they put little stress on your structure, and your lovely roofers, and are reassuringly resistant to fire.



Transform With PVC

But it’s not just flat roofs that PVC can transform. Because it is so pliable and adaptable we can use it on sloped roofs as well as creating more complex designs such as convex, concave and even vertically pitched. We can also provide an enticing colourful choice too including the authentic look of lead, copper and zinc together with standing seams to complete a truly realistic effect. Your neighbours will never know the difference.



Wind Resistance

Apologies for stating the obvious, but all roof coverings and their insulation must be constructed to resist the invisible evil forces of wind and gales. The last thing you want to see in the morning is the top of your beautiful new extension flapping about like an uncontrollable deckchair. When you entrust your roof installation to the care of Flat Roof Repair Dublin our specialist roofing professionals will keep everything stuck down all good and proper.

And that’s it. A job very well done!
