Why do flat roofs have a bad reputation? – Pro roof fixing
We have all heard about the bad reputation that lurks around getting a flat roof. With Ireland’s ever-changing weather, flat roofs were better suited to warmer, tropical countries where rain is rare. Flat roofs in Ireland are known for drips, leaking and repairs that cost a lot of money.
We here at Pro roof fixing are here to prove the rumours wrong! If you are searching for a Roofer in Dublin, we at Pro roof fixing are here to help.
Are Flat Roofs worth the aesthetic choice?
We here at Pro roof fixings believe that Flat Roofs are worth considering if they suit the aesthetic of your property. Although flat roofs do have a bad reputation, we think that this is because the flat roofs have not had the correct installation, resulting in drips and leaking. If you are looking for a flat roof specialist in Dublin, we have got you covered!
There are three different types of flat roofs that you can choose from; Rubber Flat Roofs. Fibreglass Roofs and Torch-on-Felt Roofs.
Rubber Flat Roofs
Rubber roofs have been becoming more popular in Ireland throughout the last few years. Rubber roofs are an excellent investment for your home as they can last for up to 30 years or more. The installation of rubber roofs is a lot simpler than the instalment of Fibreglass Flat Roofs and Torch-on-Felt Flat Roofs as it gets installed in one piece with no need for any joins. The only negative is that it will cost you 30% to 40% higher than installing a Torch-on-Felt roof.
Fibreglass Flat Roofs
Fibreglass Flat Roofs are one of the nicest aesthetics of the three flat roof designs. Our flat roof specialist in Dublin can install the Fibreglass Flat Roofs in one or two pieces. Fibreglass Flat Roofs can last for up to 25 years. Our flat roof specialist in Dublin will ensure that your Fibreglass Flat Roof gets installed correctly. Fibreglass Flat roofs provide durability and flexibility. They are the most expensive of the three flat roof designs but are appealing to the eye and have a lifespan of 25 years to make up for the expense.
Torch-on-Felt Flat Roofs
Torch-on-Felt is the oldest flat roof design that our Roofer in Dublin installs. Torch-on-Felt roofs are created using three layers of felt welded together using the heat from a blowtorch. Torch-on-Felt is the least expensive of the three and can last up to 30 years.
