Why you need to hire a rubber roof contractor for your flat roof!
Rubber roofing is an excellent choice for building properties in warmer climates. It is effectually and effectively resistant to sunlight damage and can be installed in any of these three ways: anchored with fasteners, glued-on or ballasted with stone. Rubber roofing is resistant to rips & scuffs, highly durable, lightweight and easy to patch when it comes to leakages. Though, it is on the higher end of the price spectrum as it is more costly than bitumen and BUR, it is a wise choice for many property owners. The installation of rubber roofing is usually not a DIY project, so it’s always advisable you hire a professional rubber roof contractor or company to ensure proper workmanship. Here at Rubber roofs Uk we are number one Rubber Roofing Contractors.
Most flat roofs today found on commercial buildings were installed by professional commercial roofers with flat roofing experience. However, there are also many residences with this type of installation. And most of these installations, unfortunately, were done by contractors who have little or no experience dealing with rubber roofing and the materials end up requiring repair long before they reach their minimum life expectancy. It is worthy to note that one can be an expert asphalt shingle roofer and not know how to put installs on a flat rubber roof.
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) roofing has replaced the earlier style of flat roofing – BUR or built-up roofing – which was made up of a base sheet and several layers of Felt Paper, hot asphalt or coal tar. Usually, this style of flat roofing was covered with gravel to give it an increased life but it is nowhere near the EPDM in terms of quality and durability. In most cases this type of rubber roofing, although, featuring less high tech materials than the EPDM can outlast the EPDM roofing in residential applications because of inconsistency in installation procedures. This is why you need to hire a rubber roofing contractor.
If you need a roofing construction or you have decided that repairing your flat roof does not worth the cost and you plan to have the roof replaced, be sure to find a professional rubber roofing contractor with expertise and experience installing rubber roofs.
In case you are a DIY enthusiast, you should always have an experienced rubber roofing contractor examine your roof before you try to make the repairs yourself. Often an experienced rubber roof contractor can see any damage(s) that the homeowner cannot see. Depending on the situation, the rubber roof contractor might be able to do the repairs for what you would spend as material costs by doing it yourself.
