Flat roofing Bath
Harrington Flat Roofing specialists have been installing flat roofing in Bath and Wiltshire for over 30 years and have seen and tried most of the systems available and truly believe that the traditional felt based systems are the best. There have been advances in torch on felt systems that mean a modern flat roof will have an average life span of 20 years provided that it is laid on a good decking system. So do not be put off by a flat roof – they are far less expensive than a pitched roof.
Torch on felt roofing
Torch on felt flat roofing systems are laid on plywood decking comprise of 3 layers: a vapour control membrane, a thin layer of reinforced felt called the underlay and finally a thicker layer of felt called a cap sheet where the underside has been pre-treated with a covering of bitumen. This bitumen covering is heated with a propane gas torch as the felt is unrolled and applied to the roof surface while it is still hot in order to weld all three layers together.
There are a few options regarding finishing touches:
- The plain black bitumen finish is ideal for adding a solar reflective paint finish
- A mineral fleck finish is available in slate grey, green, brown and blue
- Walk way tiles can be added if your flat roof is positioned where you require pedestrian access
- Limestone chippings can also be applied
All of our flat roofs are installed with mineral edging as standard which give a neat appearance by hiding the edges of the felt.
