Pitched Full Re-Roofs

Slate and Tiled

Renewing your roof has never been easier, technology has advanced massively in the last 50 years from breathable felts to roofing grade treated timber battens. Only the highest quality products make the cut when it comes to our roofs.

 Full re-roofs are needed when the felt under the roof covering perishes. To change this the tiles or which ever roof covering is in place needs to be removed to install new breathable felt and battens, at this point we usually recommend replacing the covering as well but this is not always the case.


Flat Roof Systems

Felt System                                                                                        GRP/Rubber Systems

Felt roofing is by far the most common type of flat roofing at the moment. As with most roofing products the technology has advanced greatly making felt still a great choice and the most popular.

GRP roofing is a great alternative to felt, providing quick easy installations even for awkward roofs. A great aspect of GRP roofing is that it requires no heat to install making it a great option for flat roofs adjacent/near thatch roofs.  Rubber roofing has its perks like being installed in a single large sheet meaning minimal laps or joins on the main area of roof. It is definitely a product better suited to new builds.
