Mason & Sons Roofing, with offices in Redhill and Tunbridge Wells, is in a great position to serve as the Dorking and wider Surrey area’s go-to roofing company. An area in which we specialise is the construction of flat roofing systems, as well as flat roofing repairs. Flat roofs are great for garages, extensions and outbuildings, being much cheaper to construct than their pitched cousins. But with there being different types that roofing contractors can construct, how do you know which will suit your requirements?
That’s why on this page, we’ve delved into a few of the different attributes of felt and EPDM RubberBond flat roofing systems, two which our roofing company offers Dorking clients. More interested in our emergency roof repairs? Phone the Redhill base of our roofing company on 01737 769 888! We offer a genuine 24/7 service, so if you experience a leak at an unsociable and inopportune moment, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
Felt Roofing Benefits
There’s a reason why bitumen (felt) flat roofing, the oldest form still in use, is still so popular around Dorking. Did you know it pre-dates the Romans? It’s extremely affordable and despite its price, is actually very durable. It deals well with extreme weather, when built by experienced and trustworthy roofing contractors, and rarely requires roof repairs. What’s more, felt flat roofing can be built in any weather conditions, unlike some competing forms of flat roofing. This makes it very versatile and convenient.
Some prospective customers around Dorking have expressed concerns over the aesthetic of felt flat roofing, citing tatty and ugly examples they’ve seen around town. This is purely down to the quality of craftsmanship; like any construction work, it relies on roofing contractors doing a proper job. That’s why we urge you to eschew an unproven roofing company in favour of Mason & Sons Roofing; we have a fantastic track record and won’t let you down.
Aesthetic is also down to maintenance. While flat roofing will look great when finished, if it’s neglected for a long period of time then there’s a good chance it’ll soon appear worse for wear. This is why ourroofing contractors offer a survey and report service to Dorking customers, which will identify any emerging issues as they arise and ensure you invest in the right flat roofing repairs when they are most urgently required.
If you want to send a little more on a long-lasting cold application flat roofing system, then RubberBond EPDM is ideal. This form of flat roofing is made from synthetic rubber EPDM mixed with curing agents, carbon black, clay, oil and a number of additional processing aids. It comes in large sheets and is a vulcanised, single-ply roofing membrane. It’s ideal for both domestic and commercial clients around Dorking, boasting a number of highly attractive characteristics.
Firstly, studies have shown that RubberBond EPDM roofing can last over 50 years, making it one of the most long-lasting forms of flat roofing on the market. It’s also exceptionally durable and resistant to UV radiation and influxes in temperature, both extreme heat and extreme cold. This means you’re unlikely to require flat roofing repairs anytime soon (saving you both time and money, as roof repairs on an uninsured/guaranteed installation can prove expensive).
As roofing contractors, we also love the fact that RubberBond EPDM is a quick and easy flat roofing solution to install. This ensures we can minimise disruption to our Dorking clients’ daily routines. On top of this, it’s low maintenance and an environmentally friendly product. As an environmentally-conscious roofing company, we’re proud to install these flat roofing systems and reduce our overall carbon footprint.
If you’re still unsure which option will best suit your Dorking property, we urge you to give our roofing contractors a call. We’re always happy to issue free, no obligation advice to ensure you’re 100% happy with your choice.
