The Choice Is Yours
Congratulations, your new extension is all planned, so much more space to enjoy and it’s going to look fantastic. These are big investments and you want to make sure they are properly protected for years to come, and that means choosing the right flat roof. But with such a variety of alternatives available, which one is going to be best for you? Even if you’re only at the wishful thinking stage you can always call us at Flat Roof Repair Dublin.
When a Plan comes Together
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.
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.
The traditional low cost method of waterproofing a flat roof is by building up layers of bonded bituminous felt. The quality and performance of felt membranes has improved over the years and these Reinforced Bitumen Membranes or RBM remain a firm and economic favourite for residential applications. Gaining in the popularity stakes however are high performance PVC single ply membranes, not least because these systems need only one layer.
Single Ply PVC
Single ply PVC is best suited to warm roof installations and can be laid directly onto the insulation material and mechanically fixed with a system of steel fasteners which is fast and efficient. Extremely durable and lightweight, they put little stress on your structure and your lovely roofers and have excellent fire resistance properties to offer outstanding overall value for money.
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.
Wind & Rain
It may be stating the obvious, but all roof systems and their insulation must be constructed to resist the invisible malevolent 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 a demented deckchair. When you entrust your flat roof installation to the care of Flat Roof Repair Dublin our specialist roofing professionals will keep everything stuck down and sealed as tight as a drum. And that is it. A surprisingly affordable job very well done!
