Flat Roofing

We are experts in the specification and application of flat roofing systems, both on new build and refurbishment projects. We keep up-to-date with the latest product developments and installation techniques so that we can offer you the best solution for your building. As well as roofs, flat roofing products can be applied to balconies, terraces, walkways, substructures, podium decks and water feature schemes.

Flat roofing systems are often the modern choice for clients as they are quicker and cheaper to install than traditional roofing, flexible, lightweight and long lasting, as well as weather resistant and low maintenance. They can also improve the energy efficiency of a building, for example, by including thermal insulation.

Flat roofs consist of an under layer and a top coat sealed together. The flat roofing products we can specify and install are:
