Flat Roof Replacement

Flat Roof Replacement

Domestic: To a homeowner, a flat roof can cause a lot of stress and concern. We have known homeowners spend 10 times more converting a flat roof to a pitched roof, to save on replacing a flat roof every 20-years or so.

Commercial: Business premises usually have a flat roof for a reason. Replacing the existing flat roof, especially with the more modern materials available, can be a cost effective way of ensuring the business is not disrupted by a leaking roof or water damage.

GRP Fibreglass Roofs

GRP Fibreglass Roofs

GRP fibreglass roofs have been installed in the UK since the 1940's, however, the modern-day manufactured GRP is far superior to its post war version.

Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP), often called Fibreglass roofs, is made from adding strands of glass fibres to a polyester resin to form a very strong yet lightweight material. It is commonly applied to boats, water tanks, ponds as well as domestic and commercial flat roofs.

Like EPDM, GRP Fibreglass roofs are easy to install and without the need for a naked flame. A dry roof decking is installed and then a layer of fibreglass matting is laid on top. A layer of catalysed resin is placed on top of the matting and then left to cure. Lastly, to completely waterproof the roof, a retardant topcoat resin is applied.

A professionally installed GRP Fibreglass roof should last between 25 to 30-years.

Best Material For a Flat Roof Replacement

Best Material For a Flat Roof Replacement

We are frequently asked this question. There is no right or wrong answer. The best material is determined by the shape and size of your roof, the number of items on the roof to be worked around and, of course, the budget allocated.

EPDM Rubber Roofs

EPDM Rubber Roofs

The rubber or EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) can usually be installed in one complete layer without the need for any joins. Manufactured by Firestone, it is extremely tough, yet highly elastic and lightweight. This makes it an ideal material for most roofing requirements.

It is safe and simple to install, without the need for a naked flame or molten liquids, the rubber is glued to a new roof decking as a single-ply membrane. As all large rubber roofs will shrink over the decades (between 5% and 10%) it is imperative that the correct fitting details (mechanically fixed edge fixings) are considered. For small roofs, a wet bonding adhesive and strong contact adhesive are applied around the perimeters.

A professionally installed EPDM could last up to 50-years.

Pro's:

  • Wil resist all weathers and most heavy impacts
  • Lightweight and durable
  • Ideal for "green roofs" from its superb waterproofing
  • Any damage can be repaired easily
  • Will last up to 50-years
  • Cost-effective

Cons:

  • 20% to 30% higher installation cost than a "torched-on" felt roof
  • Not best suited for roofs with a lot of pipes. gulleys, gutters etc.

Traditional Felt Roofs

Traditional Felt Roofs

Bitumen felt flat roofs are an affordable alternative to EPDM and GRP roof systems. Hot tar is mixed with a filler component, such as sand, limestone or polymers. A synthetic rubber filler, such as Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene (SBS), will increase the elasticity of the mixture. SBS Modified Bitumen rubber roofing requires less heat reducing the time and costs to lay.

Laying this type of roofing system is a highly-hazardous task and so an experienced and professional roofing contractor should be used.

Cost of Replacing a Flat Roof

Cost of Replacing a Flat Roof

There are a lot of factors that affect the costs of replacing a flat roof. The size and type of the roof, the access to the roof all determine the costs. The average costs we quote on a dometic property are between £1500 to £6000. The material used, EPDM, GRP or Felt can either increase or reduce the costs.

There is no "average cost" for replacing a flat roof on a commercial property as the price is very dependent on the size of the roof.
