PC Fascia Ltd - Specialists in flat roofing


Three types of flat roofing is commonly used:

Felt (mineral)



Flat Roofing - Rubber

Replacing a Flat Roof

First we removed the old traditional felt roof, which was leaking and weather damaged.

After preparing the area, we re-boarded it to replace any damaged, wet boards and to allow for a smooth, level surface ready for the installation of a new rubber roof.

Finished rubber roof.  To finish we ensured there were no gaps so no leaks can occur, and added new fascia boards.

We repair and upgrade traditional felt materials for flat roofing.

Replacing a Flat Roof:
Flat roof products and techniques have improved over the years.

Traditional felt is still the cheapest option and will last a number of years.

Modern versions are much less likely to leak and better insulated than ever before.

If your home does have a poorly fitted flat roof, a new replacement will probably be much more cost effective in the long run, than a repair.

If your flat roof is leaking or damaged then call us today; we can inspect the roof to see if a repair is possible, or more cost effective to replace your flat roof.

Torch-on felt:

Applied hot in two or three layers, it remains potentially the cheapest covering but there are several different grades you can specify.

The best felt systems are now comparable with any of the alternatives but cost just as much.

Torch-on felt still has its admirers.

Although it’s a cheaper product, it is built up in layers and this gives a more robust finish, more suitable for light foot traffic. And the fact that it is applied hot makes it easier to form around penetrations and corners.

We replace your old flat roof with a new Fibreglass roofing surface.

Fibreglass Flat Roofing Installations & Repairs.

What is GRP?
Fibreglass also called glass-reinforced plastic/polyester, is a fibre reinforced polymer made of a plastic matrix reinforced by fine fibres of glass.

Fibreglass is a lightweight,

extremely strong,

robust material.

Its bulk strength and weight properties are also very favourable when compared to metals, and it can be easily formed using molding processes.

Rubber flat roofing, in particular 'Firestone' is very popular for using on flat roofs, whether for garages, outbuildings, bay window roofing etc.

It can be fitted as a single sheet and is more durable and cost effective in the long run.  It is not the cheapest option but will outweigh the costs because of the lifespan.

Rubber roofing or EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) if fitted correctly has more advantages over the other types of flat roofing material.

Installation costs are quite reasonable and the advantages of durability and lifespan are second to none. No, or very little, maintenance is required. It is also considered to be more eco friendly and energy efficient and is also fire resistant.

About Flat Roofing


A flat roof is a roof which is almost level in contrast to the many types of sloped roofs.

The slope of a roof is properly known as its pitch and flat roofs have up to approximately 10°.

A flat roof has to have a slope in order for the rainwater to drain away.

Flat roofs are normally used on garages, bay windows, outbuildings etc.

Call us if you need to ugrade your flat roof to:

Firestone RubberCover™

We ensure that EPDM membranes are always fully adhered to the substrate.

We apply Bonding Adhesive both to the membrane and the substrate.

Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes are available in large, seamless sheets, so that most small residential roofs can be covered with one single sheet.

Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes can be installed on both new and existing roofs.

The membranes can overlay virtually any old roof, provided the roof decking is sound and the existing structure can carry the load of the new roofing system.
