Why we're flat roof specialists

The method used for flat roof construction has changed dramatically in recent years.  Gone are the days when felt roofs were the only viable option for our customers in Yorkshire and across the North East, as we are now also one of the most trusted specialists in Yorkshire rubber roofing.

The good news is that all types of flat with no pitch roofs can perform well when installed with the appropriate skill level and attention to detail.  However, in this industry, both of those aforementioned things are often sadly lacking.

We have encountered all too many North East and Yorkshire homeowners who have had a cheap roof installed, only for it to backfire on them in a big way. Not only do insurance companies refuse to pay out on shoddy and substandard workmanship, but the customer has also been forced to pay for a second time for a roof that will actually last.

Our services are available with 0% APR finance.

What do you need to avoid when it comes to flat roofs?

  • Substandard roofing materials
  • Unqualified installers
  • A company or tradesman without a quality track record in this kind of construction
  • Neglect of appropriate health and safety procedures
  • Uninsured contractors

Any or all of the above problems can greatly put the quality of your flat or garage roof at risk. Read this forum thread for examples of roofing horror stories, or visit our blog to learn more about how you can choose the best roofing contractor for your needs.

What's ideal for you, and what should you be looking for?

  • A professional roofer or roofing company that is skilled in not just roofing in general, but also flat roof installations in particular, given the very real differences between the two
  • All necessary insurances and health and safety certificates
  • Sound expertise in this type of construction, including an advanced knowledge of the latest technology in flat systems for roofing. This will enable your chosen roofer or roofing firm to lay out the widest range of flat roofing options, so that you can decide which one is right for you

Remember that not all roofers can install flat roofs, even when they say they can! We have professionals on the Findley Roofing & Building Yorkshire team who are fully trained and qualified in the installation of flat with zero pitch type roofs.
