Safe and Reliable Asbestos Roof Removal Solutions

Any property built or refurbished before 2000 in the UK potentially has an asbestos hazard. It’s not uncommon to find roofs made with hazardous material, and dealing with asbestos quickly and safely is incredibly important. Garage roofs, in particular, are in danger of containing hazardous asbestos materials

Left untreated, asbestos can cause a range of serious medical conditions. Lung cancer, pleural thickening, mesothelioma and more can all be caused by asbestos. When asbestos is disturbed it releases fibres into the air which, when inhaled, cause these serious medical problems. Asbestos is still incredibly hazardous and is estimated to still kill up to 5,000 people each year. Around 20 tradesmen a week are said to die due to past exposure to asbestos. 

Harmful asbestos dust can spread throughout your home. Fortunately, the team here are experts in safely removing and replacing asbestos ridden roofs. We’ve replaced a number of asbestos roofs in Leeds, Bradford and the surrounding Yorkshire area. We use our weather-resistant, durable and cost-effective EPDM rubber flat roofs in replacement. These roofs are safe and carry no asbestos hazard. 

We’ll take you through the entire process. From inspecting and analysing your garage roof to the decontamination, removal and safe disposal of asbestos, we promise a smooth and easy journey to a safer roof. When you choose Flat Roof Experts for your asbestos roof removal and replacement, you’re guaranteed a long-lasting and safer roof. 

If you’re worried about asbestos in your roof and you’re in Leeds, Bradford or the surrounding Yorkshire area, please get in touch with us to find out how we can help.

FAQs

How exactly does rain drain off my flat roof?

It’s important to understand that flat roofs are flat but are generally built with a slight incline. Part of this is so that rain water can drain away into the guttering rather than pooling on the roof. This effect is commonly known as ‘ponding’ – whereby, surface water on the roof begins to accumulate and create puddles, or ponds. 

This is best avoided, as excessive ponding can lead to leaking and damaged roofing. Ponding, if severe enough and left not dealt with, can impact your flat roof’s lifespan and longevity. That’s why most flat roofs supplied and installed by the team here at Flat Roof Experts are built on an incline – so that ponding and the pooling of surface water can be avoided and the roof can be protected from water damage and leaking. Essentially, not all flat roofs are entirely flat. 

What is an EPDM rubber roof? 

What exactly is EPDM? Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) rubber is a synthetic material used in many different applications thanks to its amazing durability, flexibility and strength. Using EPDM rubber for our flat roofing, here at Flat Roof Experts we are able to install incredibly durable roofs made from this synthetic rubber material. An EPDM rubber roof is best applied and adhered to a flat roof surface, offering an amazing life expectancy and reliability. 

EPDM rubber roofing is amazing for a number of reasons. It is incredibly quick and easy to install, it is resistant to the growth of moss and algae, it is resistant to harsh weather, rain and UV rays, it is an environmentally friendly synthetic material, requires little maintenance, and is also cost effective! It’s a no brainer – EPDM is one of the best roofing materials out there, which is why we specialise in it here at Flat Roof Experts. 

 

How should I maintain my flat roof once it has been installed? 

One of the best things about our signature EPDM rubber roofs here at Flat Roof Experts is the fact that it barely requires any maintenance at all. It’s one of the reasons that we have come to specialise in supplying and installing flat roofs with this synthetic rubber material, after all. 

In order to give your flat roof proper maintenance, it’s a good idea to give it a bit of inspection once or twice a year. We often recommend doing this in March and November, keeping your inspections around six months apart and inspecting them at times where the weather in the UK really begins to change, especially for commercial roofs. Generally, the best time to inspect your flat roof will be soon after rain or snow – this gives you a chance to inspect whether or not water is draining away off your roof properly. 

Of course, always be careful when climbing up onto any roof. Our EPDM rubber roofs are generally built able to support light foot traffic but always make sure that your roof can support you before climbing up onto it for an inspection. When you have your flat roof installed by the team here at Flat Roof Experts, we’ll be able to advise and guide you on how much weight your roof will be able to support. 

 

Can I install roof tiles over EPDM rubber roofing? 

If you want to have Flat Roof Experts install EPDM rubber roofing but also want to install slabs or roof tiles over the top of it, then good news: this is entirely possible. Of course, it is dependent on what kind of slabs or roof tiles you’re hoping to install, and it’s certainly best to let us know of your plans when we’re installing your EPDM rubber roof. It’s important to make sure that rain water, snow and other substances are able to pass between the gaps of your roof tiles in order to properly drain off your roof rather than sitting on top of the rubber membrane. Otherwise, this could lead to ponding and the accumulation of surface water on your roof. 

 

Do I need planning permission to have a green roof installed? 

Generally speaking, most green roofs can be installed without needing planning permission from a local authority whatsoever. However, there are exceptions, depending on a number of factors. Depending on the location of your green roof, the type of building you are installing it onto, the height of the green roof and more, planning permission may or may not be required for your green roof. 

It’s always best to consult the team here at Flat Roof Experts first if you aren’t sure about whether you need planning permission. Before installation, we’ll be able to provide the guidance and advice necessary to discern whether you need to get in touch with your local authority. You never want to get half way through the installation process only to discover that you don’t have the necessary planning permission. 

Green roofs are rising in popularity, even becoming mandatory installations for many new developments across the UK. As such, there’s a little more scrutiny than there has been previously for green roof conservation areas. Planning consent can revolve around a few different matters. For example, your local authority might stipulate that the green area has to blend in with the surrounding natural landscape, or that the water runoff and drainage works in a particular way, or anything else. Fortunately, the expert team here at Flat Roof Experts specialise in supplying and installing modern green roof solutions, and we can work alongside you to ensure that all necessary permissions are met.

 

Do I actually need to water my green roof?

One of the reasons we use sedum plants for our green roofs is because it is incredibly drought resistant and is a generally very resilient plant. Your green roof will need to be irrigated after installation and for the following few months, but generally speaking your roof will not need regular watering to stay healthy.
