New Flat Roof in Edinburgh

Seeking flat roofing experts in Edinburgh? Our flat roof businesses in Edinburgh are able to give you the perfect quotations for having a flat roofing constructed or restored.

Flat roofs have become more popular around the country and are also called low pitch roofs. The cost-effective and energy efficient rooftops guarantee that property owners will save money on their bills.

Flat rooftops likewise tend to last longer than pitched rooftops, while they're less expensive to install too. They're resistant against changing weather conditions and UV rays as well and can be coupled with nearly any material.

We can provide around four flat roofing businesses locally, who can provide quotes for the work you need carried out. You'll be given a house visit from professionals in Edinburgh who'll repair or construct the flat roof structure for a excellent price.

Creating a flat roof might take several weeks to finish based on the size of your house or property, and what material you intend to employ. Restoring a flat roof will take many days according to the full extent of the damage.

    FAQs

    how much is a new flat roof

    How Much Is A New Flat Roof

    What is a home without a roof to keep out the elements? Being the first line of defence against intense sun, rain, wind and more, implies they require enough care and attention to keep them in a top condition. Therefore, whether you need a new flat roof or just to replace some tiles, you’d be interested in knowing how much it would cost you to get a new roof before you start making the necessary plans. Here, we’ll give you an idea on the cost of a new flat roof and how you can estimate yours based on your unique requirements.

    The size of your roof as well as the material to be used are the two main determinants of any flat roof project’s cost. For instance, a four bedroom detached home’s slate roof will be more expensive than a felted flat roof for a small or standard garage. Generally, in the UK, the average cost for replacing a flat roof will range between £5000 to £6000. However, if you’re on a tight budget and looking for the cheapest possible option, you’ll get a felt flat roof only on a garage at about £1000 to £1500. Meanwhile if you want to replace the entire slate tiles of a large family home, the cost can jump up to a range of £11000 to £13000.

    Other factors that plays a key role in the determination of a new flat roof’s cost includes the location, labour as well as materials. For instance, a new flat roof price is likely to be higher in London and the south east than the other regions of the country. Also, labour may cost you around £150 to £250 per worker on a daily basis.

    how to replace a flat roof

    How To Replace A Flat Roof

    Is it high time you replaced your flat roof with a new one? If it’s time, then you probably shouldn’t waste another minute! Flat roofs come with multiple upsides and happens to be a lot more affordable than many other options (especially for starters). Not only do they add to your home’s curb appeal and requires a relatively low labour costs as there are minimal risks involved, but they’re also more accessible for maintenance purposes and aren’t as exposed to damage as a pitched roof. However, we’re not here to discuss the various benefits of installing a flat roof, but rather tell you how to install one. If you lack proper training and experience, we’d recommend you hire a trustworthy professional that can guarantee the best results.

    • Wipe the entire roof system clean.

    • Detach and replace rotted roof sheathings.

    • Detach and replace rotted fascia

    • Hire a qualified air conditioning professional to disconnect the existing AC units.

    • Introduce new aluminium air conditioning stands and secure against the deck.

    • Let you qualified air conditioning professional reconnect the existing AC units.

    • Put in place the new air conditioning quick disconnects.

    • Attach EPS fanfold insulation in such a way to cover the surface of the entire roof and secure it firmly in place.

    • Attach the tie-in roof materials where necessary.

    • Attach roofing membrane to cover the entire area of the roofing.

    • Attach membrane to the entire roof’s perimeter.

    • Attach new perimeter flashings (fascia bar, fascia cap and drip edge), secured on the centre at 6. Make use of a good sealant to secure the fascia bar or fascia cap’s top flange.

    • Attach boots on plumbing seal and stacks.

    • Identify the existing vent stacks and seal, and put curbs

    • Put safety walk pad network from the access point of the roof to the air conditioning units.

    • Attach rooftop signs for roof traffic personnel

    • Tidy up and clear out the debris

    how to replace flat roof fascia

    How To Replace Flat Roof Fascia

    Whatever makes you decide to install your flat roof fascia by yourself and not a professional company, then you must have a clear idea of what to do and do it appropriately. If you lack proper training and experience, we’d recommend you employ a reliable professional to help with the task for the best results and save you some time and money. This step-by-step guide will give a clear insight on how to go about the replacement of your flat roof fascia.

    The tools to be incorporated includes the fascia boards, table saw, plane, crimper, clamps, power nailer, compound saw and chalkline.

    • Prepare and get all the necessary tools to complete the task before commencing as this would save you time from stopping and going back and forth looking for the next tool needed,

    • Install the sheathing and board.

    • Fix white fascias with at least 600mm centres ( a foiled fascia needs just 40mm centre) using a marine grade stainless steel plastic headed nails.

    • Make a space of up to 10mm between the joints for possible building expansion, using super glue to secure the joints to just a side of the fascia.

    • Place this directly on the fascia board’s top (if you’ll be installing ventilation) to create an air pathway.

    • Take note that the type of roof to be installed will determine how you’ll have to install the fascia board. For instance, a hip roof permits you to attach the fascia board onto the roof in a quick fashion, whereas a gabled roof may need you to make markings on the board to achieve the right fit.

    • Consider the depth of the fascia board as it also play a huge role in the installation of the fascia board. For instance, there’ll be additional weights on tiled roofs that will push up against the board. Therefore, if you do not get the appropriate amount of depth, it could eventually collapse.

    How can I maintain my flat roof?

    You should inspect your roof twice a year, ideally after rain or snow, to see if it’s draining properly. Also in the Spring to check for damage that may of been caused over the winter months that will need to be put right before the next winter. Have an inspection carried out if you are unsure.
