Repair or Replace a flat roof – what’s best?

Repairing an Old Flat Roof – Worth it or not?

Sometimes it can be worth repairing a roof rather than replacing it.

So what sort of repairs might be worthwhile.

Sometimes the felt has come loose from an adjoining wall or it has come loose where it overhangs into the gutter. Sometimes it is damaged by a falling tile.

If these are the case then it may be cheaper and efficient to patch the roof. But if your roof is old and is suffering from cracks then a patch is not a good long-term solution.

If you have a pooling water situation that is leading to a sagging roof then you will definitely need a replacement flat roof!

Cal me for any advice for flat roof replacement or repairs in Reading.

Why Flat roof quotations for Reading, Tilehurst and beyond are not always guaranteed

When you want to have a new flat roof, (because it’s leaking or damaged in some way) you might think that all the quotations you receive are equal.

Well, that’s not the case. You see some people, (not me) add some “extras” on to the job after they have completed it. And they don’t tell you about it. That’s called Sharp Practice where I come from and it’s something we don’t do here at Park Lane Roofing.

I believe that when you come and take a look at a roof, an expert will know what’s wrong and will give you a binding quote for the work that is specified. Only if there is something exceptional that is found during the job, that couldn’t have been seen otherwise, will a quote change, and only then if the customer agrees to any additional work.

Being a specialist flat roofer is not just about being good technically, it’s also about how you treat your customers.

I have been in business for 25 years now and I have lots of recommendations. That’s because I am honest, fair and do all my own work. So you are not working with a big “brand”. You are working with Carl Clarke.

I don’t do huge commercial jobs, (although I did do the McDonalds in Reading because they somehow heard about me!) and I generally stick to domestic and small sized commercial properties. That means you probably won’t have to wait too long for me to get started on your job.

So if you have a flat roof that needs repairing or renewing, please give me a call and I will promise to my quote does exactly what it says on the paper.
