We regularly install and repair flat roofs in Glasgow and central Scotland. We have installed hundreds of such systems with happy customers all the way.
Flat roofs are a popular feature of many homes where traditional pitched roofs to single story extensions would not make a lot of sense. They are commonly used for garages, extensions and conversions in a property.
They not only free up space but in most cases are cheaper to install, as they require less material to adequately weather-proof a property.
A flat roof is never truly flat. They will always be designed and installed with a slight angle to allow water to drain away into the gutters.
We’re experienced in installing and repairing Firestone RubberCover EPDM based roofs as well as liquid plastics such as Rubberseal and also more traditional flat roofs made from felt, asphalt and lead roofs.
Flat roofs tend to have a bad reputation but 90% of this is due to poor workmanship on the part of the roofer. There is no inherent issue with flat roofs when installed properly by skilled tradespeople like ourselves. In fact, we offer a 10 year insurance backed guarantee with these systems.
Please remember this point- Flat roofs are a great investment IF they are installed by skilled and competent tradespeople.
