Flat Roofing Tips Froom Speede

Flat Roofing

Flat roofs have long been a cause of concern in the UK. As it is UV rays that damage most flat roofs (rain just shows the symptoms of the damage caused by the sun) one might wonder how, in hot countries, there are so many successful flat roofs. We believe the main reason for flat roof failure in the UK is the fact that we experience many more temperature changes.
Speede Have tried many different flat roofing solutions, some more successful than others. Built-up felt systems rely on the heat being applied to the roof either by using hot (melted) bitumen or torch-on felt, both of which can be very dangerous, and neither of which are UV resistant.

The Solutions

We use a single-ply roofing system which is safe to apply as the application of our single-ply roof systems requires no open flame, it´s very safe to use. It is mechanically fixed and overlaps are permanently sealed using our hot air torch, which is so safe to use. It can´t even set fire to a piece of dry paper!

Our single-ply roofing system has an expected lifetime of up to 30 years, yet remains easy to remove and recycle at the end of its useful life. In addition, the thin design results in the minimal use of raw materials in manufacture and energy for transportation. It is UV resistant, has an expected lifetime of 30 years and is guaranteed for 20 years, which is far in excess of most built-up and torch-on felts. Our roofers are also qualified to fit both single-ply and fiberglass roofs.

Fibreglass roofs can be ideal for awkward situations or where a walking surface is required.

Why renew your roof?

Redland Cambrian SlatesRedland Cambrian Slates

If you roof is worn out, the rest of your home is at risk. Quite often slates can appear to be in good condition but the nails which secure them to the batten can suffer nail fatigue, this becomes evident when slates begin to slip and cause leaks. Tiles and slates that are worn out can delaminate and disintegrate. Metal flashings can split and wear. Roofs of a certain age will not have under-felt as a secondary line of defence. Ridge tiles can become loose. All or any of these factors can mean that a roof needs to be renewed.
