We provide flat roofing services throughout Central Scotland for commercial and home properties where required. Flat roofs are normally associated with warm, arid climates where they can be used as a living space or ‘living roof’. As you can imagine from Scotland’s often inclement weather, flat roofs regularly encounter problems because of the cold which destroys the felt. The good news however is that we have developed a system here at Northwest Roofing that can cope with such weather for decades.
IKO Polimar System
We are an approved contractor with IKO, the multi-national waterproofing solutions provider. IKO Polimar is a cold liquid system we use to waterproof your flat roof. Durable and seamless, it ensures no water penetrates it while also expanding and contracting with the summer heat and winter cold respectively. We have a range of IKO systems available for your particular roofing needs, offering from 5 years up to 25 years guarantee.
Built Up Felt Roofing
To effectively keep the Scottish rain out we also offer built up felt roofing for your flat roof. One layer of bituminous roofing is used which is bonded to the previous layer. This creates an extra layer of security to maintain the security and good condition of your property.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) roofing, also known as vinyl roofing, is another effective method of waterproofing your roof. Normally due to its light colouring, it is a very energy efficient roofing option for your property
GRP Cure It
Another effective cold liquid system like Polimar but also more robust, GRP offers an insulation layer and is suitable for all kinds of flat roofs. Our guarantee is between 5 and 20 years. GRP offers the additional advantages of being relatively inexpensive, inflexible and never corroding, presenting an all-round offering for your property.
