How much is it to fix or replace a flat roof?

I often get asked how much it costs to repair or fix a flat roof. I don’t usually do a quote over the phone because what happens is that if I do a quote without seeing the roof, then someone has in their mind that’s the price. And it isn’t.

The thing is that all flat roof repairs or replacements are different. It’s a matter of size and also what materials you want but also how easy or hard it is to do the job.  If the roof is a tricky shape and in a terrible access point then that’s going to be really hard to do – so it’s going to cost more.

So what I tend to do is I usually give a range of a price. For example, I may say £600 to £450, for a small job. That way, the homeowner has a rough idea. But then I go and take a look and give a firm price when I have factored everything in.

As I pay for my van, disposing of waste, insurance, clothing, fuel, equipment, materials, tax, etc believe you me, I am not the richest man in the world.

But if you want a good honest tradesman, who has a good attitude, great recommendations and will be reliable and good value, as opposed to cheap, then please hire me.

I do all my own work, I don’t subcontract and my kids will be grateful for your support…

Autumn Rain Results In Flat Roof Leaks – They Need To Be Fixed

When September comes around, there’s usually a flurry of calls to my mobile. Why? It’s because it’s traditionally a wet and windy month.

It’s certainly looking to be a damp start to Autumn after a relatively dry period over the summer. At first, you may not notice any leaks in your roof or ceiling, but I’d advise you to check your porches and any other flat roof area closely this September.

Make sure that you look at the area where the walls meet the ceiling. It’s often the case that you can see a damp patch forming there. That’s usually where the old felt has started to come away at the edges of the flat roof.

If you have a damp patch and you’re worried it may be your roof leaking. Let me know and I’ll come round to have a look at it for you.

Remember, I am a specialist flat roof repairer and installer for all of the Reading area.

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!

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.
