    Single Ply Roofs

    Why choose single-ply roofing? Single-ply roofing has been used since the late 1970s for many buildings in the UK: airports, hospitals, schools, supermarkets, and even sports stadiums. In recent years, it's also become a popular roofing choice for housing. Single-ply roofing is made from flexible and resilient membranes. It's durable and it's a complete roofing solution that will keep heat in while keeping wind and rain out. There are three basic types of single-ply roofing systems: Warm deck A warm deck system has a single-ply membrane laid over a base layer of thermal insulation. The insulation sits on top of a vapour control layer (VCL). This system is effective at keeping the roof decking warm during cold weather, reducing condensation, and preventing water vapour from getting into the insulation. Inverted warm deck The inverted warm deck system is similar to warm deck, except that it further protects the single-ply roofing with unique weather-resistant insulation placed above [...]

    Tile Roof Repair

    Why Choose Slate and Tile Roofing? Slate is a traditional roofing material that's been used for roofing for over 700 years. It's a natural, durable material. Today it comes in three varieties – natural, artificial and zinc – that creates an authentic and beautiful roof that is particularly well-suited for for traditional-style homes. Artificial tiles produced from either clay or concrete are similar to slate, with properties that make them long-lasting and hard-wearing. They are available in many styles and colours to suit the look of modern houses. Here are the benefits of slate and tile roofing: Durability Slate is very durable, and slate roofs that are well-maintained can last up to 150 years. Tile roofs also last a long time, around 50 to 70 years. Standard roofs generally have a lifespan of around 20-30 years, so slate and tile are impressively long-lasting. Long-term value While they are initially more expensive, slate or tile roofs provide good long-term [...]

    Fascia and Soffit Replacement

    Soffits As used in construction and by gutter system installation companies, the soffit is the part of the roof on the exterior that overhangs the outer wall of the house. When you look up at the edges of the roof, the underside of the roof that is visible is the soffit. As a homeowner, what you need to know is that it's important to properly maintain the soffit on your roof. If the soffit is rotting or ill-fitted, birds and other pests can get into your walls. We've seen soffit that is full of nesting materials from squirrels and pigeons. One job entailed removing two full wheelbarrows of nesting materials left by birds, squirrels, and other creatures from the soffit on a house. Soffits can be made from a variety of materials. The most common today is are aluminium, plastic, and vinyl, and these materials are generally more maintenance-free. They often are ventilated to provide airflow in the attic and eaves. Soffits can be installed by both roofing contractors and gutter [...]
