Felt Flat Roofs

Felt flat roofs are an extremely common occurrence in the UK. For many years they have been used on garage roofs, garden sheds and home extensions. Felt roofs are created by combining high quality felt materials together in several layers to create a hardwearing and durable barrier. This is then finished with a waterproof coat to protect it from the elements. Felt is commonly used in roofing for good reason. It is versatile, durable, hardwearing and well suited to handling the worst (or the best) our weather can throw at it.

EPDM Rubber Flat Roofs

Many flat roofs use felt, bitumen or asphalt in their composition. However, EPDM rubber is becoming a popular choice for many property owners due to its many benefits. Not only to rubber flat roofs look fantastic, they are also very durable and resilient with a long-life span. At Jacob James Roofing, we use only the very best, high-quality materials in both roof repair and installation. As such, the rubber roof membranes we use in our flat roof installations can last for over 50 years!

GRP Flat Roofs

Another type of flat roof that has enjoyed a surge in popularity of late is the GRP flat roof. Also known as a fibreglass roof, GRP (which stands for Glass Reinforced Polyester) is a composite material formed by strengthening plastic with fine fibres made of glass. GRP roofing systems have long lifespans, often outliving their felt counterparts. In fact, when installed by a reputable roofing contractor like us, a fibreglass flat roof can last for at least 30 years with minimal repairs or maintenance needed. What’s more, GRP flat roofs are designed to withstand even the worst of the Great British weather. From heavy rain to snow, frost and sunshine, they retain their form and function whatever the weather with minimal chance of damage or leaking.

Warm Flat Roofs

Warm Flat Roofs Warm Roofs are a thermally efficient and cost-effective option when it comes to flat roofs. They are named so as a layer of insulation is added in construction which warms the structural supports of the roof itself. When a warm flat roof system is in place, the insulation serves to keep the roof and the loft area a similar temperature to that of the property as a whole. This means that less energy is lost through the roof and buildings are more thermally efficient as a result. Overall, the benefits of a warm flat roof are: They are cost effective They are thermally efficient They work well with the UK climate They prevent damp and decay.

Tom, LE11 "From start to finish I can’t recommend Jacob James Roofing enough! Lee came out (on a Sunday) after another roofer had let me down and did a full inspection and even a quick bit of emergency work there and then to stop a leak. His team then came and got the job done on time and on budget. Everything was very professional with Lee sending a report before the work was started and photos afterwards. A great company that I would strongly recommend."
