What are the options?

Choosing the right material for a flat roof, whether it’s for a garage, shed, or any other structure, is crucial for ensuring its longevity, reliability, and appearance. With various options available, understanding the unique benefits of each material can guide you to the best choice for your project.

Roofing Felt

  • Affordability and Installation: Roofing felt is a popular choice in the UK due to its cost-effectiveness and straightforward installation process. It provides a reliable weatherproof seal for most flat roofs.
  • Cost: Felt is an economical option, both in initial purchase (starting at under £2 per square metre) and in repairs and maintenance.
  • Durability and Lifespan: While not the most robust option, felt roofing withstands weather well and typically lasts between 15-20 years.
  • Aesthetic: Roofing felt offers a neat, professional look with various colour options, suitable for diverse flat roofing projects.

Shed Felt

  • Specialized for Small Outbuildings: Shed felt is lighter and typically comes in a two-layer system, designed for garden sheds and similar small structures.
  • Cost-Effective and Easy to Install: It’s one of the most affordable roofing materials, easy to install for DIY enthusiasts, and still offers adequate protection against weather and impacts.
  • Appearance and Suitability: Shed felt can smarten up any garden shed, available in a range of colours to match different styles.

Torch-On Felt

  • Enhanced Durability: Torch-on felt, with its bitumen layer, offers greater strength and protection against weather and impacts, ideal for larger projects.
  • Professional Installation Recommended: Given the complexities and safety considerations, professional installation is advised for torch-on felt.
  • Longevity and Cost: It’s slightly more expensive than other felt types but compensates with a longer lifespan of about 20 years.

Self-Adhesive Felt

  • DIY Friendly: Perfect for those new to DIY, this felt type is easy to apply and still boasts the typical benefits of roofing felt.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: It is an affordable option, making it suitable for small to medium-sized residential projects.

EPDM Membranes

  • High Performance and Longevity: EPDM is a robust, low-cost material offering strength, longevity (40-50 years), and a straightforward installation process.
  • Appearance: While not highly decorative, EPDM provides a seamless look in shades of black or grey, suitable for various projects.

GRP Roofing

  • Exceptional Durability: GRP is known for its resilience and longevity (20-30 years), capable of withstanding extreme conditions.
  • Installation and Cost: Installation is manageable for skilled DIYers, though the material is among the pricier options for flat roofing.

Green Roofs

  • Eco-Friendly and Unique: Green roofs are ideal for those seeking an environmentally friendly option, offering air quality improvement and insulation.

Cost and Complexity: These are more expensive and complex to install but provide a unique, visually appealing finish and have a long lifespan (40-50 years).

The EPDM Roofing System is ideal for virtually any residential, commercial or industrial flat roofing project. The EPDM single-ply membrane features a polyester fleece laminated to the underside giving a stronger and thicker flat roofing membrane. 

Benefits of the EPDM Roofing System

  • Easy to handle: Membrane size is 1.52m x 12.2m (18.54m3)
  • Durable: Fleece reinforced for added toughness
  • Weight: 75% less than a bitumen felt systems
  • Tough: Will not tear, split or crack
  • Quick: Pre-applied Seam Tape for fast, reliable seams
  • Weather Resistant: Not affected by extremes of temperature
  • No Shrinkage: A quality that standard EPDM can’t offer
  • Flexible: Over 300% flexibility to easily accommodate building movement

EPDM membrane offers 180% greater tear resistance and 40% greater puncture resistance than non-fleece reinforced roofing membranes. The range of adhesives makes the EPDM installation a flame and heat-free process reducing the risk of fire, a risk usually associated with flat roofing. The choice of low-odour adhesives makes this an excellent product for occupied homes, schools and businesses. Our reinforced fleece-lined EPDM’s outstanding strength and longevity is suitable for all green roof systems and can also be slabbed or decked For areas that need maintenance access.

The lifespan of a flat roof in the UK can vary depending on the materials and installation used, as well as how well the roof is maintained. Typically, a properly installed and maintained flat roof using high-quality materials can last between 15-20 years. However, more advanced systems such as Torch-on felt, GRP, and EPDM roofing systems can potentially last longer up to 25-30 years or more. It is important to note that regular inspections and maintenance are crucial to ensure the longevity of flat roofs. At SNR Roofing, we provide written 6-year guarantee for all complete flat re-roofs, which ensures our clients will have peace of mind.
