How Do I Choose the Best Roofing System?

Contractors installing roof system

Our roofers are experienced installers of many different kinds of roofing system. Some systems are more suited to certain roofs than others. Our knowledgeable roofers will be able to recommend the most appropriate system for your roof. These are some of the considerations that need to be accounted for when choosing a roofing system.

How the Roof Will Look

Pitched roofs come with a range of tiling options and flat roofs are available in a number of energy efficient materials. Take a look at the roofs of the houses in your area and think about what you like and what you don’t like. Then chat to our experts about creating your ideal roof.

How the Roof Will be Used

If your roof’s only function is to keep the rain out of your property, rest assured that all of our roofs do that so your choice is a stylistic one. However, if the roof has other uses (for instance if you are to use it as a roof garden or terrace) then we will need to consider the level of foot traffic and the weight of any features such as planters. 

Future Plans for Your Roof

You should also think about anything that you may wish to do with your roof in the future. If you are planning to add a skylight or a chimney some years down the line, then the need for further penetrations into the roof surface will limit your choice of materials.

Stack Emissions

Think about whether there are chimney stack emissions and whether they will drift onto the surface of the roof. If there are emissions, we will tell you how this could affect your choice of surface and materials.

We take the time to fully understand your roof, so that we are able to offer you the most up-to-date, high-quality roofing systems at a competitive price. Before preparing a quotation, your roofing contractor will be happy to talk you through the options which are available and the various pros and cons of particular materials given your exact circumstances.
