We help you to make the right choice

As the largest independent privately owned roofing company in the North of England, here at Findley Roofing & Building, we take great pride in assisting homeowners across Harrogate, York, Leeds and other parts of Yorkshire to select a roofing material that will delight them for many years to come.

Here are some questions to ask yourself when contemplating which roofing material will best suit your needs:

  • Do you want a particular look for your roof?
  • How much money are you looking to spend?
  • What is the weather resistance of your chosen material?
  • Would you prefer a flat or pitched roof?
  • How durable is the material that you are considering?
  • Are you looking to have a balcony built on your roof?

From fibreglass GRP to EPDM, we give you every option

Are you most attracted to the idea of having felt roofing installed on your flat roof, due to its high level of durability and the scope for it to be applied in various ways? Or perhaps it’s the especially natural and traditional appearance of slate roofing that most appeals to you?

Alternatively, there are the slightly more modern roofing materials – fibreglass GRP and EPDM. The former – also known as glass-reinforced plastic – is highly versatile, strong and weather-resistant, its qualities having been proved on British homes since it was first installed here in the 1930s.

EPDM, meanwhile, has a rather shorter history, having only been invented in 1980. However, you really can’t expect to find a more attractive solution for your new flat roof or rubber roofing project. Indeed, its environmental friendliness, UV and weather resistance, cost-effectiveness and lifespan of up to three decades help to make it one of the ultimate home roofing solutions of recent times.
