For the benefit of homeowners considering flat roofing work, we have taken a closer look below at the range we offer as roofing contractors.
EPDM Flat Roofing – As a time-served roofing company, we have seen first-hand the outstanding durability this synthetic rubber roofing membrane provides. Manufacturers of EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) roofing derive their products from two primary ingredients – ethylene and propylene. Sourced from oil and natural gas, these ingredients lay the foundation for decades of superior waterproofing performance.
Available in a range of thicknesses starting at 1.2mm, EPDM comes in rolls of various dimensions. This allows our clients to install a single membrane for smaller roofs, or to join multiple EPDM sections for larger jobs. Either way, as roofing contractors, we lay EPDM membranes through the use of liquid adhesives and specially formulated tape.
Whichever option our clients in Oxford, Abingdon, Headington or the wider Oxfordshire area choose, the result remains the same: a high-performance watertight roof.
Bitumen Felt Roofing – Consisting of two elements, namely a waterproofing agent and a ‘carrier’, felt roofing has long held its popularity as a cost-effective, highly durable flat roofing solution. During our time as a roofing company, technological advancements have seen the introduction of polyester as the ‘carrier’ that holds the bitumen water proofing agent. With impressive flexibility and a virtually untearable quality, polyester withstands the demands placed upon roofs exposed to the elements.
Likewise, the old-style bitumen has been enhanced with the additional of chemicals such as APP (actactic polypropylene) and SBS (styrene butadiene styradene). These additions make for a much more high-tensile product.
With multiple layers of roofing felt bonded together at high temperature, our roofers then apply the material in Oxford and the surrounding areas through the use of heat application methods, most commonly torch-on or roll-and-pour. These methods melt the bitumen layers, allowing our roofers to apply the roofing felt to a layer of underlay.
