Flat Roofing Types & Systems and Repairs in Dublin

Torch-on-Felt

Torch-on felt is what covers most flat roofs and has come a long way in the last ten years. This is the go-to option, cheap and readily available, it’s usually applied in two or three layers. They can either have a granular finish or a smooth finish and this can be then painted with solar reflective paint. It usually comes with a materials guarantee of 10-15 years and costs about €55per sqm.

PVC

Another alternative is PVC, this is a single ply membrane of usually grey-coloured rubber is fixed to your timber base, making labour costs cheaper than the installation of a two-ply material. When its laid well it can looks very good, it usually costs 20-30 per cent more than a torch-on system and will come with guarantees of around 12-15 years.

Fibre Glass

Then there’s fibreglass, its effectiveness is still a bit undecided but has a reputation of being durable. Its inflexible nature is not suitable for some situations, but advances in materials in recent years have made fibreglass roofing more reliable and very durable. Costs are around €70 per sq m on domestic-sized roofs and should be able to last for about 15-20 years.

Zinc Roofing

Zinc is growing in popularity and one of our favorites, it’s a slick, smooth, contemporary look that goes on in panels with a standing seam joining each panel. Its a very modern and durable look impressing the neighbours and visitors.

It is naturally resistant to corrosion, needs minimal to no maintenance due to its natural, self-protecting patina, and is extremely long lasting – 100 years-plus. It can come in a few grey, dark and silvery colours and will maintain its colour throughout its life.

Costs are about €120 per metre by the time up-stands, drips and fascias are taken into account. It is a nice advantage to be able to do your fascias, soffits and rainwater goods in the same material, giving nice continuity and consistency.

Copper Roofing

Copper has been the more traditional way to go. It is one of the few metals that occur naturally rather than needing to be extracted from ore, thus making it one of the earliest metals to be used. The covering of choice for well-to-do buildings of the past. The gorgeous green patina it develops after years of oxidation has long been coveted by architects.

A truly beautiful natural product but unfortunately it comes with a truly heavy price tag. Expect to pay in the region of €130 per metre. Like zinc, it is extremely long lasting, around 100 years in this country.

Lead Roofing

Lead, another beautiful and traditional product, is hugely malleable, and mostly used on small areas, over bay windows for example. Cost would be similar to copper at €130 per metre and comes with a material guarantee of 50 years.

Fascia & Soffit Ballsbridge

Few people know when Fascia & Soffit need repairs in Dublin. There are some people who may not know when to repair your fascia. Perhaps the best place to start is to give the definition of the roof and explain what the fascia is. I must emphasize the importance of having a reliable roofing company so you can get the job done with no mistakes.

The fascia is a piece of horizontal material that is between the highest part of the outer wall and the eaves that extend from the building. At the end of the beams, which often support the gutter, there is a fascia board. The entire lower part of the fascia is the soffit.

Leaking roofs lead many owners to despair. It seems that any amendment is only temporary because in a few years the structure begins to rot again. What is the cause of the damage? Its roof is exposed to the weather. It must withstand intense sunlight, as well as rain or snow. As long as the water is drained correctly, the structure is safe. However, any problem with moisture regulation leads to rot and destruction of your property.

Roof Repairs Dublin The fascia and roof linings play an essential role in draining moisture from the roof structure. Although the name is foreign, you undoubtedly saw the boxes under the roof that surrounds the house. They are part of the gutter. First, the fascia keeps the gutters in the correct position. It is vital that the water runs through the drain pipe instead of splashing on the roof. Second, they collect moisture and help it evaporate through the roofs in the lower part of the structure. While the mechanism is working correctly, your roof will remain secure.

What is happening so often? If the gutters are filled with fallen leaves or the drain pipe becomes clogged, water splashes on the edges of the boards at the botOur Roofersof the roof. They absorb moisture and begin to lose shape and rot. From this point, the damage extends through all the roof layers. Rainwater begins to seep inside. This can cause large losses if the process is not stopped.

Fascia & Soffit Repairs

Why were the boards of your roof not waterproof? Wood seems to be the most popular roofing material, especially in older homes. After several years of enduring the forces of nature, the protective layers of paint begin to peel off. Finally, the wood begins to soak the rainwater and begins the process of destruction. Coatings must protect the skeleton. However, wooden ones also begin to rot. You need to repair the frame to protect your home.

For Fascia & Soffit Repairs, check gutters and drainage pipes at least once a year. Remove all organic matter from the interior to ensure adequate water flow. Whenever you suspect there is a problem with the roof, act immediately, a quick response can mean the variation between minor repairs and a costly renovation of the entire roof structure. Nowadays you can avoid a constant fight against leaks. Install a safe and elegant drainage mechanism to protect your home. Call today for a Quote on 01 5176228
