Flat Roof Problems?
Cherwell Roofing Services specialises in flat roofing, a conventional flat roof will leak due to failing joints and weathering. Here at Cherwell Roofing Services, we use EPDM which is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane to give you lasting protection. EPDM roofs are a single piece and therefore will not split and have no joints.
Customers can be rest assured they will receive a top rate service and we also offer a 20-year guarantee on all work undertaken, giving you absolute peace of mind.
A flat roof is an ideal solution to cover small building such as garages and extensions. They are constructed with a horizontal base which is fixed to ceiling joists with a waterproof membrane.
A slight pitch is usually incorporated so rain water is drained away and doesn’t pool on the roof.
This method is considered to be an affordable option for homeowners when constructing extensions and garages, as less materials and labour time is required than a tiled, pitched roof.
You can expect a flat roof installed by Cherwell Roofing Services to last 25 years.
Resilient Flat Roofs
EPDM Rubber roof membrane does not suffer with age from cracking or crazing compared to traditional felt roofs. EPDM repels all moisture and is the perfect solution for waterproofing flat roofs.
EPDM Rubber “breathes” allowing vapours to escape, thus preventing blisters. EPDM roofing materials are highly resistant to UV (Ultraviolet light) and IR (Infra red light).
Advantages of EPDM
We recognise that one system doesn’t fit all roofs so here are some of the advantages of the EPDM systems and our Polyurethane Liquid system to help with your decision making:
All EPDM based membranes have a life expectancy in excess of 50 years, making them highly cost effective and environmentally friendly. The membranes remain permanently flexible and are highly resistant to UV and infrared light, without the need for additional surface protection. EPDM is extremely elastic, with no shrinkage or dimensional changes over a temperature range from -40 to +120 Degrees centigrade. EPDM membranes are very competitive in price especially the CLASSICBOND & SHEDCOVER systems.
DIY Flat Roof Systems
All of our roofing systems including both EPDM and Polyurethane, have exceptional resistance to the effects of weather, environmental chemicals and aggressive industrial emissions.
The reinforced membranes, RESITRIX & DUOPLY offer additional puncture resistance and dimensional stability on larger roofs due to their integral Glass Fibre / Fleece reinforcement.
The ELASTATHANE liquid system is a great system for complicated roofs where laying a membrane might prove awkward.
No nonsense straight from the tin!
