Flat roofs in Hertfordshire and North London
As the leading provider of flat roof installations across Hertfordshire and North London, we have much to offer our customers. Here are some of our more popular flat roof choices…
This is the foundation of any flat roof. It is laid across the ceiling joists and forms the base layer on which to set the finished roof. It can be constructed from a range of materials including concrete, plywood, timber boards, and more. At AM Roofing, we look at your flat roof specifications before recommending a material.
Single layer membrane flat roofs
As the name suggests, this process involves applying a single thin sheet of material to the top of your structural decking. There are several elastomeric or plastomeric roof membranes that can do the job, resulting in a fully waterproofed flat roof. These include neoprene, EPDM, PVC, and polymer-modified bitumen's. We will recommend a particular membrane depending on the job.
Built up roofs
Built up roofs have been in use for more than a century. They are laid using roofing felt, impregnated with asphalt and applied with hot bitumen. Built up a layer at a time, it creates a solid and durable roofing surface. A finely-ground aggregate is normally mixed with the bitumen for the final layer for added toughness and grip.
Modified bitumen roofs
Modified bitumen roofs are a contemporary alternative to built up roofs. Instead of mixing aggregates with the bitumen, this process uses cap sheets (reinforced roof wear layers). There are several ways to apply these roofs, depending on the specifications. These include hot-applied, torch-applied, cold-applied, and self-adhered. Our professional flat roofers will give their recommendations at the design stage.
People put their flat roofs to different uses. Some – such as balconies, roof terraces, and roof gardens – are designed to experience regular footfall. In these instances, something more substantial than a plastic or felt membrane is required. At AM Roofing, we recommend a tiled finish, stuck to the structural deck with a high-quality screed.
Liquid plastic roofs
Liquid plastic is a state-of-the-art flat roofing solution. It can be applied to almost any flat roof design and to whatever material the structural deck is composed of. It is literally poured over the surface of the flat roof, where it forms an entire, seamless membrane that is both watertight and exceptionally durable.
