Flat Roofing FAQs

Why should I opt for a single ply solution rather than traditional felt?

The Renolit single ply roofing solutions we install have a life expectancy of 35-40 years. Traditional felt roofs last just 10-15 years.

Does your single ply product fit on top of the existing felt roofing?

It is possible to do this, but we’ll usually need to remove any existing felt in order to check that the structure of the roof is sound.

Will my window cleaner be able to walk on the finished roof?

The finished single ply roof can take light foot traffic, but we recommend boarding out an area if ladders are going to be used. For a fully walkable area, check out our walk-on tile products.

My flat roof area has skylights and a number of pipes – will this present a problem?

No, not at all. We can work around any obstacles, creating bespoke metal edging to ensure a watertight fit.

Can you provide referrals for your work and give me details of other single ply flat roof projects you’ve undertaken?

Yes we can. We’ll be very pleased to provide you with details on request.

Fascia Boards, Soffits & Guttering FAQs

Why should I choose UPVC fascia boards and soffits over wood?

UPVC is far more resilient to the elements than wood. Unlike wood, your UPVC fittings will require no maintenance and won’t distort or discolour.

I’m concerned that UPVC is not environmentally friendly. Is this true?

No, UPVC is 100% recyclable.

Can you provide referrals for your work and give me details of other fascia board, soffit and guttering projects you’ve undertaken?

We located Leigh through Check-a-Trade website. From the moment we met, Leigh's professionalism, knowledge and courtesy was excellent! The work was done within the time frame. Leigh was onsite and overseen all the work step by step. Leigh and his workmen arrived were postural and worked very hard throughout the whole day. Leigh's workers were very polite while on site. Premises were left clean and the warranty arrived as promised. We have already recommended Leigh's work to several friends and even to Reading Borough Council who were impressed with the material quality and high standard finish Leigh did on the flat roof.

Thanks again Leigh for everything.

Re-roofing of a flat roof in Berkshire

Rooftek re-roofed our flat garage roof with a membrane material. Leigh and his team completed the work very quickly after my enquiry as to when the work could be done, fitting it around their other jobs. This was great as I wanted the work done. They were very efficient and courteous, and the work was completed to a good standard. Would recommend.
