We are specialists in overlaying existing flat roofs over any common substrate.
Flat roofs, like pitched roofs, have a limited lifespan. Wear and tear due to weather damage and just general material degradation eventually causes small flaws to turn into big problems. So when a flat roof has reached the end of its serviceable life, has prematurely failed and is in too bad a condition to make maintenance an option, you are faced with two options: repair or overlaying of the flat roof or a complete replacement of the roof covering.
An overlay or a repair of a flat or pitched roof means the careful application of a new covering over the existing roof membrane. This is the case in the majority of roofing projects that we carry out. Most times the structure of the existing flat roof is sound, it is just that the roofing membrane has come to the end of its useful life. At RBHI we use high quality, reliable products that are built to last. Overlaying is always the first option RBHI will consider. Recovery or repair of a flat roof is preferable in terms of time and cost, being a significantly quicker process and cheaper than a replacement flat roof.
