Domestic Commercial Roofing

A. Dansie Roofing undertake repairs and installations on domestic commercial roofing.

Flat roofing repairs on older offices, industrial units and residential properties can be easily undertaken by our team. Our installations can be laid directly over an old bituminous roof using modern EPDM rubber or GRP fibreglass systems. The main benefits of flat roofing with either of these two materials are water-resistance, durability and strength.

Our Redhill roofers also use these materials because they are adaptable, flexible and very resistant to UV lighting. Application is also easier and safer because our roofing contractors never need to use solvent welding, open flames or any other hot application systems. We do, however, provide flat roofing repairs using traditional felt systems if required.

Three Types of Flat Roofing Explained by Dorking’s Best-loved Roofers

  • Felt Flat Roofing – One of the oldest types of flat roofing still employed by homeowners and companies around Dorking is felt. When building these systems, roofing contractors build up layers of bitumen which are bonded together using a hot torch. They’re hardy and rarely require roofing repairs, but their chief selling point is probably their affordability. New roofs built from felt are very cheap, and ideal for Dorking property owners working with a tight / strict budget.
  • GRP Flat Roofing – GRP stands for glass reinforced plastic, which is made up of a mix of polyester resin and glass fibres. It offers exceptional weather proofing, is quick and easy to install, is low maintenance and lasts a very long time. As with felt flat roofing, you’re unlikely to require roof or chimney repairs anytime soon if you choose GRP for new roofs on Dorking properties and outbuildings.
  • EPDM Flat Roofing – Then there’s EPDM, which stands for ethylene propylene diene terpolymer. It’s incredibly durable and offers a very clean and minimal aesthetic. When well-looked after, they have the potential to last the longest out of the three materials mentioned on this page. Roofers love to work with it, as it’s perhaps the easiest material to apply, coming in lone long roll of material which is then carefully applied. Our roofing contractors can build EPDM new roofs for both domestic and commercial clients.
