EPDM is a rubber material used across an array of outdoor roofing applications due to its waterproof resistance, even in the harshest of weather conditions. EPDM rubber roof systems are a versatile choice for anyone requiring a durable solution for their flat roofing project and can be used on flat roofs, sheds, gutters, and facades, and as a damp-proof course.
If you're looking to have a more sustainable life, green roofing is the perfect solution. Used by homeowners up and down the country, green roofs are an easy & convenient way to bring more onto your property whilst giving back to the planet at the same time.
The benefits of a biodiverse sedum roof are almost endless; they are self-sufficient, protect your property from flooding, and most importantly, reduce your energy consumption as they help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This is particularly useful if you're city-based as it reduces the urban heat island effect.
The lifeblood of every modern home; whether you're keeping your property at a liveable temperature, reducing your energy bills, future-prepping your home for fires, or even reducing how loud a conversation sounds in the other room.
As an essential part of every home, we sell a wide range of insulation products from Celotex and tapered insulation boards to vapour barriers and insulated plasterboards, we have everything you'll need for your next insulation project.
The go-to choice for waterproof materials. Glass-fibre roofing (GRP) is used on homes and commercial properties across the country for its high flexibility and long-lasting life expectancy. Liquid roofing is a polyurethane liquid system used to cover large surfaces quickly, with minimal seams, to create an effective waterproof membrane. Both of these are cold-applied and ideal for flat roof repair, maintenance, and new roofing systems, particularly complicated roofs that are highly detailed. With high waterproofing abilities, you can protect your home for decades to come without even knowing the rainwater has hit it.
Flat roof windows are a great way to let natural light into your home. As a Dakea partner, we supply a large range of skylights and roof windows designed for flat and pitched roofs, alongside Mardome and Skyseal flat roof window options for polycarbonate or glass roof lights.
Flat roofing is the method of applying a flat roof onto a property to achieve a completely or almost level surface.
Flat roofs have a variety of purposes, whether it’s for space saving (without the need for a pitched roof),sustainability (green roofing) or used as a roof terrace/patio area.

When opting for a flat roof application, there are many features that make them more convenient for buyers.
Lower construction and repair costs are one of the highlighted benefits of installing flat roofs, as it is easier to apply and maintain throughout their lifetime. It also takes up less space and can also use less material than traditional, sloped roofs.
Flat roofs are installed with specific flat roofing materials commonly made from felt, rubber, fibreglass or lead. These allow the water to run off from the surface, which then goes into gutters - a commonly used method due to the cost-effective structure for flat roofs.
Having a flat roof installed within your property can cost around £1,000 to £5,000 on average. Although, there are a lot of factors to consider when purchasing an instalment feature such as this.
The type of roof, the location, size of the house, ease of access and expertise are all factors that will need to be considered to acquire a more concrete price for your roof.
Keeping your flat roof in a substantial shape can be difficult if you don’t maintain it consistently. Periodical check-ups are essential for flat roof maintenance, as even smaller issues can lead to larger problems if left unattended.
Keeping the roof clean, clearing a blockage from the drains and watching the weight of your flat roof (on seasonal circumstances such as snow or ice) are all factors you need to consider when maintaining your flat roof.
Green roofs encourage biodiversity to flourish and protect the waterproofing system below; with a handful more environmental, practical and visual benefits, including air purification, indoor temperature regulation and harsh weather protection, which is why they are becoming increasingly popular on new build properties.
EPDM rubber is a synthetic rubber material, whereas GRP is a composite material made from polyester resin and glass fibre reinforcement. Both are highly durable, flexible and weather resistant, however, EPDM roofing is considered more cost-effective in both material and installation costs. For complex roofing setups, we recommend using GRP.
