When you choose a flat roof repair company you are either going to choose someone on recommendation or you are probably going to look online and make a decision based on price.
I always think that you should actually meet the person who is going to fix your roof before you make any decisions.
You see, gut instinct rarely lets me down when I make a decision and most of my clients pick me based on gut instinct. Sometimes I am cheaper than others and sometimes I am more. But when I ask why I was chosen, my clients always say, “Carl, we just felt you were the right person for the job”.
After 20 years of fixing flat roofs, I have made a lot of friends in Tilehurst and Reading and I hope that gut instinct will continue to play a part in me getting more work.
Of course, my work is guaranteed, I do it all myself without subcontracting and I will do a good job.
If your gut instinct tells you I am the right man for the job, then use my £47 money off voucher when you call me to get a quote or for me to visit.
my client Uri Geller
Ok, so my claim to fame is that I did Uri Geller’s new flat roofs in Sonning.
My hit list now is to do the flat roof for George Clooney too.
If there are any famous people you know that need a new flat roof or a repair, please let them know I am the “Flat Roof Repairer To The Stars”.
Just kidding. I am happy to do “ordinary” flat roof people too.
By the way, Uri drives a hard bargain. He should have used my £47 website discount voucher!!!
I get asked quite a lot to mend flat roofs and put new ones on in the local area. Just to let you know, if you are in any area around Reading I am happy to come and offer my time to do a quote.
Sometimes I think people are shy to ask someone in Tilehurst to quote for a job in Caversham Heights…but please don’t be. A flat roof will take between 1 day and 5 days to install in general, depending on the weather and the size of the job, so a short 20 minute drive for me to come and see and give you an estimate is really a small part of my service!
The main thing to remember when getting a quote is that everyone will probably charge you a different amount, so you really need to know that everything will be taken care of in your quote, including VAT, taking away the rubbish etc.
Feel free to call me on this number
Kind regards, Carl Clarke
As a flat roof company we often get a call from someone asking us if it is possible for someone to repair their own flat roof.
The answer to this question is yes providing you know exactly what to do…
However, knowing what to do is where being an expert generally helps!
For example, the first problem an amateur may have is falling through a flat roof because the leak has caused the boards to rot away over time!
The timbers may not be strong enough to hold your weight, even if you walk on boards you have put up to help spread your load. So this is the first thing to worry about.
Secondly, you may not be able to find the leak. Just because you have found out where the wall or ceiling is wet or damp, it doesn’t mean you know where the leak is.
Thirdly, you may not have the skills to use bitumen and the lit gas burner to repair your roof! (I’m not joking!)
Unless you are a very experienced DIY expert, I’d recommend getting an expert roofer in to have a look at your problem. Even if you don’t choose me to fix your flat roof in Reading, I can always take a quick look and advise you on what your outcome might be if you do it yourself. (Of course I’ll leave you with a quote too, just in case you want to save yourself the time and hassle of doing it!).

New Flat Roof – Get Skylights For Added Light
Your new or repaired flat roof might benefit from a domed skylight.
After all, if you are having some work done, you may as well improve things if you can, at the same time…because it will save you money.
A new flat roof can always be improved with a Skylight
Natural daylight isn’t always what comes to mind when you are thinking about a new flat roof but having a skydome installed is a sure fire way to improve your home.
Natural light is better for you than artificial light. It makes a house warmer, brighter and more livable.
So always consider a Skydome included in your quote from me if you would like this option.

“But My Flat Roof Doesn’t Leak At The Moment!” Looks aren’t everything. It’s true that a flat roof does not need much maintenance. But there’s the great British weather which can easily cause problems e.g. snow, frost and rain.

Are Flat Roofs Totally Flat?
Thursday, September 15th, 2011
Reading Flat Roof Repairs can now reveal exclusively that all flat roofs are not always…FLAT!
That’s because they are generally inclined slightly so that the rainwater can run off to the gutter or small downpipe.
Not all flat roofs are flat! Some are positively pyramid-like!
Some systems allow the water to evaporate, some are designed for the water to go over a lip on to the ground and some have a special pipe (like a drainpipe) to let the water flow away. What’s right depends on what your roof is like.
