When it comes to flat roofing in the UK, there are several popular options to consider, each with its own advantages and considerations. The 3 moat commonly used flat roofing materials are traditional felt, GRP fiberglass, and EPDM rubber.

Understanding the characteristics and benefits of each material is essential in making an informed decision for your flat roof, our team at MK Roofing & Home Improvements Ltd can help clarify which flat roofing solution will be best suited for your specific project.

Felt roofing has been a traditional choice for many years, it is cost effective, easy for our team to install, and provides reliable waterproofing. However, it can require regular maintenance and can have a shorter lifespan compared to GRP and EPDM.

GRP fiberglass roofing is a durable choice and consists of a reinforced fiberglass matting bonded with a polyester resin. GRP roofs are seamless, meaning there are no joints or seams where leaks can occur. A GRP roof is resistant to UV radiation, fire, and weed growth and has a longer guarantee than a felt roof.

EPDM rubber roofing is another popular option for flat roofs. Like GRP, EPDM roofs are resistant to UV but can also perform under extreme temperatures. TEPDM rubber sheets are cut to size and fixed in place. EPDM roofs have a long lifespan, often exceeding 40 years, and require minimal maintenance.

One roofing solution is going to be better than another for your flat roofing project but whichever option you decide upon, rest assured it will be installed to the highest standard.

All flat roofing work we undertake is fully guaranteed and we hold full public liability insurance too.
