Why Choose Us?
Congratulations, your new extension is all planned, so much more space to enjoy and it’s going to look fantastic, or maybe you’ve decided to give the car a cosy dry garage to park at night. 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. We’ll be glad to listen to what you have in mind and then give our recommendations for the ideal roofing system that perfectly matches your budget.
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. Where a roof is part of a heated, habitable part of the house like a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or conservatory, it will need fully insulating with fire-safe insulation material. You’ll be warmer and your heating bills will be smaller.
Improvements In Membranes
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, so installation times can really move up a gear.
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 as well as creating more complex designs such as convex, concave and even vertically pitched. We can also provide an enticing colour choice too including the authentic look of lead, copper and zinc together with standing seams to complete a truly realistic effect. Your neighbours will think you’ve won the Lottery.
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!
