Southwark

The London Borough of Southwark in south London, England forms a part of Inner London and is connected by bridges across the River Thames to the City of London. It was established in 1965 when three smaller council locations amalgamated under the London Government Act 1963. This integrated the former area of the Metropolitan Borough of Southwark, the Metropolitan Borough of Camberwell, along with the Metropolitan Borough of Bermondsey. It's controlled by Southwark London Borough Council.

It borders the City of London and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets to the north, with the River Thames forming the boundary, the London Borough of Lambeth towards the west along with the London Borough of Lewisham towards the east. Towards the south are the London Boroughs of Bromley and Croydon. In line with population estimates made in the middle of 2014, Southwark has a permanent population of around 302538 individuals.

The borough is home to a number of cultural, historical and notable attractions. The Shard, Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and Borough Market which are the largest of the venues in Southwark to draw domestic and international tourism. Dulwich is home to the Dulwich Picture Gallery and the Imperial War Museum in Elephant and Castle.

FAQs

How much does it cost to replace a commercial flat roof?
If your commercial flat roof needs replacing, how much it costs will depend on how big the roof is and what you want it to be made from. Lots of commercial flat roofs are made from felt or asphalt, but people are also beginning to turn to materials like EDPM rubber and fibreglass. Flat roofs can last a long time, but if it’s been 20 years or more since you had it replaced or inspected, it might be time for a new one. If a roofer inspects it and finds lifting, flashing problems, sagging or lots of blisters, it’s probably time to replace your flat commercial roof. So how much does it cost to replace your commercial flat roof? The average cost is around £4,500, but it could be much less or much more. It depends on how big your roof is and what material you choose. Felt is the cheapest material you can use for your commercial flat roof, at around £40-70 per metre squared, while a lead bay roof will cost the most at £90-110 per square metre. EDPM rubber and fibreglass roofs are being used more and more because they’re so durable, and they will cost between £80 and £110 per square metre. It might be worth spending a little more upfront to get a stronger and longer-lasting commercial flat roof.

What is the best commercial roofing material?
The best commercial roofing material for your building will depend on the size and type of roof you have as well as your budget. A lot of commercial buildings have flat roofs, but some have pitched roofs. These days, flat roofs are almost flat, but are usually built on a small slope so water can drain effectively. Pitched roofs are much steeper and are made using tiles or shingle. Our top choices for commercial flat roofs would be fibreglass or EDPM rubber. Both of these materials will set you back around £80-110 per square metre, making them some of the most expensive flat roof materials, but they’re strong and durable. A fibreglass roof consists of a cut glass fibre mat that is pressed on the roofing frame, then resin is poured and rolled over the roof before a topcoat is applied. An EDPM roof involves laying an EDPM rubber membrane on the roof surface then gluing it down and coating it with a contact adhesive. For pitched commercial roofs, our top material would be concrete tiles or metal. Concrete tiles will set you back anywhere between 40p and £2.90 per tile and they’re long-lasting and fire-resistant. However, they are heavy and can be susceptible to high winds. Metal roofs have been used for over 50 years and today’s modern systems are extremely strong and allow for structural or thermal movement. Aluminium roofs will cost between £40-75 per square metre, plus installation. These days, flat roofs are almost flat, but are usually built on a small slope so water can drain effectively. Pitched roofs are much steeper and are made using tiles or shingle. Our top choices for commercial flat roofs would be fibreglass or EDPM rubber. Both of these materials will set you back around £80-110 per square metre, making them some of the most expensive flat roof materials, but they’re strong and durable. A fibreglass roof consists of a cut glass fibre mat that is pressed on the roofing frame, then resin is poured and rolled over the roof before a topcoat is applied. An EDPM roof involves laying an EDPM rubber membrane on the roof surface then gluing it down and coating it with a contact adhesive. For pitched commercial roofs, our top material would be concrete or clay tiles. Concrete tiles will set you back anywhere between 40p and £2.90 per tile and they’re long-lasting and fire-resistant. However, they are heavy and can be susceptible to high winds. Clay tiles cost as little as 50p to £2 each and can last over 50 years, but they are heavy so if your commercial roof isn’t already, it will need to be reinforced.

How to install commercial rubber roofing

How you install commercial rubber roofing is similar to fitting it on a residential property, except that the area that’s covered is likely to be bigger. With commercial properties, you should always leave any maintenance and repair works to the professionals – whether you own or lease the property, you could invalidate any insurance if you try to install rubber roofing yourself. We’ll outline the steps roofers will take when installing rubber roofing on a commercial property.

Firstly, the installers will remove any existing coverings and clean and dry the surface thoroughly. This is vital in ensuring that the rubber will stick. They will then unwrap the EDPM rubber membrane and leave it to rest until it’s fully expanded. On a warm day this may take around half an hour.

Next, the roofers will work with half a sheet of rubber at a time and adhere it to the roof surface. They may use a water-based adhesive which they will spread onto the roof in sections, then roll the membrane onto the surface before moving onto the next section. If they’re using a bonded adhesive, they will apply it to both the roof and the rubber and leave it to dry until it’s tacky before extending the membrane.

Once the EDPM rubber is rolled out, the installers will brush the surface with a large broom to get rid of bubbles and provide a stronger bond. Then they will work of the edges, applying adhesive to roof and walls edges, sealing corners and creating watertight seals. They’ll also tidy up any excess membrane and seal all the trims.

As long as it’s installed correctly, your commercial rubber roofing should last you decades without any repairs needed. It’s always best to inspect your roof regularly to spot any damage before it becomes a bigger problem.

How much does it cost to replace a commercial roof?
How much it costs to replace a commercial roof depends on the type of roof you have and the size of your commercial property. Lots of commercial buildings have flat roofs, which are often made from felt, asphalt, EDPM rubber or fibreglass, while others are pitched roofs that might be made from tiles, shingle or metal. It’s likely that your commercial roof will need replacing if it’s more than 25 years old. A roofer can carry out an inspection to determine what, if any, work is needed, but there’s a high chance that you’ll need a roof replacement if it’s that old. If your flashing is looking worse for wear or you’re missing a number of tiles or shingles, it might be time to replace your commercial roof. So how much does it cost to replace a commercial roof? If your commercial roof is pitched, expect to spend between £4,500 and £7,500. It all depends on how large your property is and how easy access is, as the more scaffolding you need, the more it will cost. If your commercial property has a flat roof, the average cost would be approximately £4,500. Again, it all depends on the material, access and how large the roof is. Felt costs between £40-70 per square metre, while fibreglass costs between £80-110. Whatever type of commercial roof you have or what it’s made from, make sure you get a few quotes from reputable roofing companies so you know that the job will be done well.
