Felt / Flat Roof

Felt / Flat Roof

We have all the necessary knowledge to provide you with a flat roof that is second to none. Our services cover all aspects of flat roofing including rafters, base re-boarding and felt systems.



Flat Roof Features and Design

Flat roofs are horizontal roofing with a very slight inclination (usually 10 degrees). Flat roofs can be made from a variety of different materials and substances, including Asphalt built up roof (BUR), modified bitumen, Hypalon, PVC, TPO - Thermoplastic Polyolefin single-ply roofing and Mineral built up felt, lead roofs, fibre glass, Fibreglass GPR Roofing, EPDM - Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (synthetic rubber roofing). Flat roofs always have a base and a coating of some sort, all of which require inspection and maintenance on a regular basis.

Maintenance and Assessment of Flat Roofs

The life expectancy of a flat roof is relative to the amount of maintenance it receives. However, this can be influenced by the kind of material your flat roof is made of.

All flat roofs should receive an inspection at least once a year, and should tend to the following more important aspects;

* Keeping roof drains clean and debris free, so that clogging won’t prevent water from being drained, causing an overload of weight.
* Preservation of roof coating, which prevents degradation by the sun and provides a water-tight membrane. This is especially important if you have a concrete flat roof.
* Prevention of water leakage. Approximately 90% of all flat roof leaks are caused by insufficient maintenance of flashings.

If you are unsure as to whether or not your flat roof is in need of repair or even replacement, a Roofer Sussex representative is always able to advise you on the right course of action.

 

Moss Removal

Causes Of Moss On Roofs

Are you fed up with excessive moss growth on your roof?




Did you know that it can cause the following? -

* Gutter blockages that can cause damp to penetrate into walls
* Rainwater downpipe blockages that can be costly to unblock
* Marks and stains on patios and conservatory roof panels
* The roots can cause any existing hairline cracks in roof tiles to expand

You will probably already know how unsightly the green menace can look, so what is the best method to remove and then prevent the roof moss?

Roofs suffer from moss growth for a variety of reasons and the cause is rarely down to one single factor.

Below is a short list of conditions that assist moss growth:

* Shaded parts of the roof such as under branches or chimneys
* The north side of a roof as it gets much less direct sunlight
* Under television aerials where rainwater drips onto the roof even after it has stopped raining
* On concrete tiles as the moss will feed off the minerals on the concrete surface
* A moss covered roof will produce lots of moss spores and that will result in more growth

How Did it Get There in the First Place?

Moss contains thousands of spores and all it takes is for one to land on the roof and it will start to grow, thus creating more spores.

If you live in a terraced or semi detached property or even if your home is close to your neighbours, then chances are moss is being spread around by the wind. Birds will also pick up spores and transport them from one place to another.

Roofs suffer more than concrete driveways because there is no human traffic on the roof, so apart from birds and heavy rainfall there is nothing to disturb the growth.

Is Moss Growth More Prolific Now When Compared to the Past Few Decades?

Yes. There are many air pollutants that inhibit moss and algae growth such as oxides from Zinc, Copper and aluminium. The Clean Air Act (other countries may have different names but similar laws) resulted in a noticable reduction in many of the chemicals that inhibit moss growth. This has led to a marked increase in moss and algae growth in the United Kingdom and other countries that have taken steps to control pollutants.

How to Treat and Prevent Moss Growth

Below you will find some tips for removing moss from roofs and preventing it from coming back.

* Cut back any overhanging branches to allow more light onto the roof

* Allow Roofer Sussex to remove any existing moss

There are several ways to remove and prevent roof moss, which one is right for your property will depend on the roof covering or tiles you currently have.

Loft Insulation

Energy Savings

In an uninsulated home a quarter of your heat is lost through the roof. Insulating your loft is a simple and effective way to reduce your heating bills.



Loft insulation - what's it all about?

It's never been more important to think about insulating your loft. Without proper insulation a lot of the valuable, expensive energy you use to heat your home will be lost through the loft. The recommended depth for mineral wool insulation is 270mm however there are other materials which require different depths.

Why insulate your loft?

Loft insulation is an effective way to save energy and money at home. A well insulated house keeps warmth exactly where you need it - indoors.

So, insulating your loft - or topping up any insulation you have already - will help to heat your home more efficiently. Using less energy reduces carbon dioxide emissions (CO2): one of the biggest causes of climate change. You will also save money on your bills too.

What could you save?
Increase in loft insulation thickness (0 - 270mm) = Around £145
( These are estimated figures based on insulating a gas-heated, semi-detached home with three bedrooms ).

Loft insulation is effective for at least 40 years, and it will pay for itself over and over again in that time. The better insulated your home, the less energy you need to keep it warm - the more money you'll save in the long run. By saving energy, your household will produce less CO2. So, adding or topping up your loft insulation is a great way to do your bit - and reduce your impact on the environment.
