There is so much to take into consideration when it comes to installing flat roofs, including the time it takes to have a flat roof fitted and the flat roof cost. Flat roofing is the ideal option for property owners who desire a quality roofing design without any hassle, thanks to its quick, inexpensive installation process and easier maintenance.
Every 15 to 20 years, flat roofing may need to be replaced or repaired. Fortunately, the replacement process is fairly simple and won’t cost you too much money. In this guide, we’re going to explain how long it takes to fit a flat roof.
The Time It Takes to Install Flat Roofing
Be it a garage roof replacement or a green roof covering, a roof installation should usually require between 1 and 3 days for completion.
If you require a flat roof replacement, you need to consider the time it will take for the actual removal process of the roofing job. That said, when you receive assistance from a flat roofing expert employed by professional roofing companies like Alvadac, it should take approximately 2 to 3 days to fit your flat roof. Having your entire roof installed? This could affect the completion time too.
Flat Roof Materials Impact Fitting Duration
The duration will also be determined by the type of roof material used, as well as you or your roofer’s level of skill and experience with fitting it. EPDM, for example, could take up to 12 hours to remove, and then another full day to reinstall. A competent roofer like our team of professional roofers here at Alvadac will be able to fit each and every roofing material without any hassle in good timing.
With several layers such as the vapour control layer and the layer of underlay felt, most flat roof materials are designed to protect your property from extreme weather conditions, as well as atmospheric weather conditions such as heavy rain and wind. However, if weather conditions are harsh during the time in which your flat roof is being fitted, or even unpredictable mild conditions, this could affect the completion time, and thus extend the duration of your flat roof project.
Why EPDM Flat Rubber Roofs Are a Good Option for a Range of Flat Roofing Projects
While glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) roofing is created when a base layer of catalysed resin is applied to a layer of fibreglass mating, EPDM is a very durable synthetic rubber. It contains two major constituents obtained from oil and natural gas, ethylene and propylene.
EPDM roofing can be installed by an experienced roofer from our team on all domestic and commercial buildings. We always follow building regulations and comply with building control notification processes.
Roofing Boards Impacting Installation
The time it takes to fit a flat roof can be impacted by the conditions of your roofing boards and roofline products, including:
- Decking boards
- Stirling boards
- Fascia boards
- Insulation boards
Your roofing completion time could even be determined by your walls, be it an external wall, an internal wall or a cavity wall.
