If your current flat roof is old and you can see dampness or leaks coming through, it is time to look at replacement. Ploughcroft only specialises in the highest quality variety; warm roof construction that is highly durable, easy to maintain and extremely energy efficient – meaning lower energy consumption and costs.
Ploughcroft offers a range of flat roof systems for all types of spaces and budgets with a life expectancy of up to 30 years.
For large flat roofs, we apply Sika Roof Waterproofing Membranes. They are typically used for the covering of existing flat and pitched roofs, and their advantage is that they can be applied without removing the existing roof covering.
Sika Roof Waterproofing Membrane is applied cold and so eliminates the risk of fire during installation. It is low maintenance and the application causes minimal disruption. Ideal for those roofs with a lot of detail!
Small Flat Roofs
For smaller flat roofs, such as extensions, garages, dormers etc., we use Firestone RubberCover. This comes in seamless sheets, is environmentally friendly and has a high durability. It is also fire-resistant.
Firestone Building Products specially designed the Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM Roofing System for small residential flat roofing applications.
The system is based on high performing Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM rubber membranes and a limited range of accessories offering a watertight and durable roofing solution.
Balconies and Walkways
Flat roofs that can withstand heavy traffic may be specified for balcony surfaces and walkways.
Flat roofs can also be converted to Warm Roofs by adding extra insulation boards over the top of the roof structure. By placing the insulation on top of the roof structure the timbers of the roof are insulated and warm. Think of it like sleeping underneath your duvet rather than on top of it.
The insulating boards stop the heat escaping through the flat roof, meaning you use less energy. We use a high-tech insulated warm roof which normally achieves a U-value of 0.18W/M2k which comes with a 20-year waterproof guarantee.
Warm flat roof construction means taking a large amount of insulation up onto your roof, therefore, scaffolding is nearly always needed for access and safety. Read more about our High Level Access services here.
