Flat roofs are no longer problematic
Flat roofs have developed a real bad name for themselves in the past because the traditional felt coverings don’t wear well at all with the British weather. We are very pleased to be able to report that’s all changed now! We have two flat roof construction systems which will allow you to simply get on with your life as you would with any other form of roof, both having guarantees of 20 years.

This system makes the perfect roof covering for the warm roof insulation system – your roof would have both thermal, efficiency saving qualities and be totally weatherproof.
Warm Roof Insulation for Flat Roof Construction
Our warm roof insulation system allows the panels to be laid on top of your current flat roof, as long as it is in reasonable condition. Traditional cold roof insulation systems require the existing roof surface to be removed, panels removed and replaced and then a new roof adding on top of the new insulation. Warm roof insulation, therefore, drastically cuts down the hours of labour and materials to be skipped and removed.
As the warm roof insulation is laid over the whole surface of the roof, it is also more energy efficient than the traditional insulation systems, saving you further money over time.
If you need a new flat roof construction or have an existing problematic flat roof, look no further. We are experts in the roofing and insulation systems we use.
