High performance felt Systems

Bituminous felt roofing offers a cost effective solution to flats roofs. Traditionally these comprised 2 or 3 layers of bitumen felt laid in oxidised bitumen with solar reflective chippings to protect the surface from UV radiation. These roofs have a limited life expectancy.  In order to overcome these deficiencies polyester reinforced felts with polymer modified bitumen and mineral finishes were developed which offered longer life expectancy and overall performance. These products were further developed to allow torch on application

Projects are undertaken using specialised systems from Alumasc, Bauder, DeltaIcopal and other leading manufacturers. Vapour control layers, uniform thickness and cut to falls insulation can be specified according to site requirements.   Systems are available with a choice of 10, 15 and 20 years guarantees.

Houston Roofing Ltd undertake all aspects of felt roofing including new build of refurbishment projects working for main contractors, local authorities, commercial and domestic clients.  As part of our service we can supply and install rooflights within the roof system to provide an effective and economical way of introducing natural light and ventilation to rooms without access to external walls. These may be glazed with polycarbonate complying with HSE HSG33 regulations providing safe

work areas during maintenance.  For light and ventilation in larger areas continuous barrel rooflights can be installed.

EPDM Flat Roofing Syetems

As trained, authorised installers of Firestone EPDM Rubber we highly recommend this system for your flat roof repair, flat roof renewel or flat roof replacement. Most flat roofs today have an existing covering built up of a 3-layer felt system, hot bonded to the decking and covered in granite chippings or reflective aluminium paint. Due to it’s lack of flexibility, this system weathers within 10 years and shows signs of blistering and breakdown of seams. If you are replacing your flat roof you won’t want to install one that may need replacing again in 10 years time. Our EPDM roofing system supersedes the outdated 3-layer hot bitumen roof and is guaranteed for 20-years with a life expectancy of 50 years!!

  • Firestone Rubbercover EPDM
  • Fully adhered system: No Flame
  • Large Seamless Sheets
  • Fast and easy installation
  • Life expectancy up to 50 years
  • Little or no maintenance
  • Superior flexibility
  • Lightweight
  • Eco friendly

The importance of roof inspections

Let’s face it – Whether it is a Commercial Roof or a Residential Roof, your roof is a major investment. Major investments need protection. Annual maintenance can provide that protection and insure proper functioning. On the other hand, a lack of inspection and maintenance will eventually result in premature failure and unexpected and avoidable expenses. For your roof system to retain its long term value, a roof inspection and regular maintenance program is therefore imperative.

Houston Roofing Ltd

From planned maintenance to emergency roof repairs, our Houston Roofers are experienced working with all roofing materials and all aspects of roofing. Our roofers carry materials with them on all jobs so they can often make some repairs on the spot. Call Houston Roofing Ltd now on 01132439612 to make an enquiry by phone. Whether your roof is sloped or flat, we offer roofing repairs, property maintenance, and chimney construction. We also work with conservatory roofs, guttering and re-pointing.

Noticing that you have a roof leak can be the hardest part of roofing maintenance, as leaks are often slow, and can cause a lot of damage before you would normally notice a problem. To spot small leaks before they turn into a big problem, it’s a good idea to inspect your roof at least once a year (or twice a year if possible). Carefully use a ladder to get a look at the roof – but do not walk on the surface, as this can damage your roofing and be unsafe. Use binoculars to examine the roof. Checking a roof during the winter can be dangerous – so take extra care. The parts of a roof most likely to need repair are flashing (e.g. around any chimneys or pipes) – look for any bits of felt with cracks or curled edges.

Also look for any cracked or damaged roofing shingles. Extreme weather and ice can cause cracked tiles which can leave large parts of the roof exposed to the felt underneath. Look for any discoloured patches of roofing, for example any black or green areas; this may be algae which can eat away at the roof. If your roof is more than a few years old, check the loft or attic ceiling (and rafters) for damp patches after a storm or period of heavy snow.

Roofing repairs are cheaper earlier

Spotting roofing leaks and knowing when repairs are needed can be challenging, though most home owners will manage it. However, doing the actual work is usually only possible by a qualified roofer. Leaving a roof leak unfixed can result in damp walls, mould in the loft, and at worse, structural damage to the roof itself. Call us on 01132 624 590 and have your roof inspected to avoid unnecessarily expensive repairs in the future.

Roofing Emergency?

If you have a roofing emergency, such as a leaking roof or gutter repairs, call Houston Roofing Ltd now on 01132 439 612 and we’ll get a roofer in your area out to you as soon as possible.
