Ideal for extensions, garages, outbuildings and sections of new build schemes, flat roofing systems can be a more affordable, space-efficient option than pitched roofs. It can also be easier to secure planning permission for flat roofing than pitched.

With JAH, flat roofing installations are always carried out by qualified and accredited roofers who know how to properly manage a project, ensuring it is completed on time and within budget.
Fibreglass Flat Roofing – Fibreglass (or GRP) flat roofing systems are lightweight and durable. They are made by layering fibreglass matting and resin, resulting in a seamless and strong finish. Fibreglass roofs are resistant to water, fire, and UV rays, and are also easy to maintain and repair. Brighton and Storrington residents who ensure proper maintenance, and installation by a reputable roofing company like JAH Roofing Specialists, can expect them to last up to 50 years. Fibreglass roofs can be customised to suit the shape and size of the building, with finishes available in a range of colours and textures.
EPDM Roofing – EPDM (or rubber) flat roofing systems are made from a synthetic rubber membrane. This form of flat roofing is lightweight, flexible and easy to install, making them a popular choice for DIY projects; however for a problem-free, long-lasting end product, we always recommending bringing in a professional roofing company like JAH in Brighton and Storrington. They are durable, and can also last up to 50 years when well-cared for. They are also a great option for the ecologically-conscious, being energy-efficient and often made from recycled materials.
Felt Roofing – Felt flat roofing systems are made from layers of bitumen and felt, and are a more traditional roofing option. The big draw of felt flat roofing is that it’s inexpensive, making it ideal for Brighton and Storrington residents on strict budgets. It’s also flexible and can be used on a range of building shapes and sizes. However, felt roofs are not as durable as other flat roofing options and may only last 10-15 years. They are also prone to damage from UV rays, which can cause cracking and warping. Felt roofs require regular maintenance, including resealing and resurfacing, to prevent leaks and other issues.
