A High-Quality Commercial Flat Roofing Solution
At Flat Roof Experts, we specialise in EPDM rubber roofing, one of the most popular flat roofing solutions available on the market. EPDM, which stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, is a synthetic single-ply roofing membrane that offers many incredible benefits.
One of the main attractions of EPDM rubber is its unrivalled durability. The membrane comfortably holds up against all kinds of extreme weather conditions, from heavy rain, freezing snow and harsh winds to melting heat and intense UV rays from the sun. In fact, EPDM rubber can withstand temperatures as high as 150°C and as low as -40°C.
As a result, an EPDM flat roof has excellent waterproof and fire-resistant properties, which not only keeps your building and belongings protected, but it helps to reduce the health and safety risks in your workplace.
Its incredible durability means an EPDM flat roofing system requires little maintenance while offering a superior life expectancy -- the average lifespan of an EPDM rubber roof is around 30 years! For added peace of mind, all of our commercial flat roofing systems come with a 20-year guarantee.
EPDM rubber is also an excellent thermal regulator. It keeps the heat in during the cold months and keeps the heat out during the hotter ones, helping you to reduce your overheads and remain energy efficient. Combined with its long life expectancy and low maintenance, an EPDM flat roof offers excellent value for money for your business.
Furthermore, EPDM rubber is environmentally friendly. It leaves behind a minimal carbon footprint throughout its extraction, manufacturing and installation process. Primers and adhesives are usually added to the membrane to reduce any volatile organic compounds (VOC) being released during its installation. EPDM rubber is the eco-friendly roofing choice for any ethical organisation.
What Commercial Flat Roofing Projects Have We Worked On?
Our flat roofing systems are suited to a wide range of commercial buildings, from small corner shops to large-scale industrial premises. As trusted subcontractors to the building and roofing industry, we have a variety of clients and have regular contracts with home improvement companies.
Here are just some of the commercial buildings we can work on:
Offices, Schools, colleges and nurseries, Flats and apartment blocks, New-build properties, Factories, Shops and supermarkets, Leisure centres Hospitals
A commercial flat roof should last as long as any other flat roofing systems, domestic or business based, if using the same material and maintenance schedule. On average, a commercial flat roof membrane should last on between 20 and 25 years before needing to be replaced. If really well maintained with low levels of foot traffic, this could even stretch past 50 years.
Of course, the lifespan of your flat roof will depend on climate, the type of membrane, the quality of the initial installation and the regularity of proper maintenance.
First you must plan the installation of your commercial flat roofing project. This involves taking measurements, considering energy efficiency, choosing your roofing materials and sourcing roofing contractors from a professional roofing company to come and help you design and install your flat roof.
When creating the initial designs, it is imperative that you ensure your flat roof has a suitable slope to disperse rainwater, otherwise water will accumulate in puddles on your roof and pose risk of permanent damage. The installation of your commercial flat roof starts with making sure the roof decking is clean and free of dust. Then you can trim, glue, and flatten the roof surface so your commercial flat roof is complete.
Our commercial flat roofs are made from high-quality EPDM rubber – one of the best flat roofing materials available on the market today. Whether we supply roofing materials to the trade or carry out a full installation project ourselves, EPDM rubber is our material of choice due to its many benefits and fantastic attributes. EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) is a synthetic rubber material is extremely durable and flexible, making it a popular choice for a wide range of applications.
There are a number of reasons why you should choose a flat roof over the standard pitched style for your commercial roof. Firstly, they tend to be less expensive and less complicated to install in comparison, especially when it comes to large commercial buildings. A broad commercial building with a large area space will make it almost impossible to install a pitched roof, as the roof would need to boast a ridiculous height to create the pitched appearance.
Also, commercial buildings rarely need access to attic space the same way a domestic or residential property might do. Most of the things that live on or around the roof area on a commercial building will do so on top of the roof. For example, commercial properties usually have their air conditioning and ventilation units on the roof, to save on vital space within the building. These are much bigger for commercial premises than for domestic ones, so the space created by a flat roof is incredibly beneficial. With requested access, those with permission can easily access the top of the roof to make repairs, replacements and perform general maintenance.
The main benefit of choosing EPDM roofing systems is that they are long-lasting and durable. They are also extremely low maintenance, meaning they will withstand the elements and protect your roof for years and years, without you having to do much at all. A simple clean should suffice throughout the seasons, and any possible repairs should be made as soon as possible to protect the roof’s longevity. The good thing is that repairs are usually simple and easy to make to EPDM rubber roofs, with a restoration process that is just as easy and non-disruptive as the installation process. The result is an attractive commercial roof with a superior finish, that is safe during installation and beyond.
