The Fibreglass roof coverings come with a 25 year guarantee. Fibreglass coverings are far more resilient than the traditional felt flat roofs and provide a maintenance free covering with over twice the life expectancy to that of felt. Fibreglass roofs will not be affected by frost or solar degradation, unlike felt. As such, this product provides a peace of mind that the new Fibreglass roof will not leak in seven to eight years time, which is the average life expectancy of felt. The range can be finished in many different colours, with a slate or a non slip surface.
Fibretech’s aim is to provide a service which will be rated with 100% satisfaction. All properties are left clean and tidy upon completion. No job is too small; Fibretech employees always keep to pre-arranged times in relation to initial visits and fitting.
Areas of coverage currently being Gloucestershire, Malvern and Ross-on-Wye.
Traditional Cold Roof Construction.
Old methods of constructing flat roofs was by the traditional method of insulating the void between the joists directly above the plasterboard. For habitable rooms this method of construction is no longer deemed cost effective or practicable. Warm air transports moisture in the form of water vapour, and any cold surfaces within a building have the potential to reach dew point when that warm air comes into contact with them. Moisture ingress into the roof space can occur in many ways.
Roof ventilation construction was often regarded as “the traditional way” of meeting the regulations. However, from an energy conservation perspective, introducing cold external air into roofs can be to the detriment of the construction by:
- Reducing the effectiveness of the insulation
- Promotes warm air leakage from the building into the roof space
- Increasing air infiltration into the heated building (draughts).
Traditional Warm Roof Construction.
From October 2010 and the implementation of Approved Document L1B (Conversion of Fuel and Power) an existing flat roof has been required by Law to comply with rigorous U Value targets, based on any refurbishment of more than 50% of your flat roof (LB1; Section 5.81 and Table 3 Column b). A warm roof system is the most efficient way to achieve these results as required and set out in accordance with current Building Regulations.
All new-build flat roofs require a warm roof construction to comply with Part L.
A warm roof is made from a rigid insulation board composite with integral foil backing (Vapour Barrier) that is placed above the roof joists and onto which the OSB3 decking and seamless fibreglass membrane is laid.
The clear space between the plasterboard ceiling and the roof deck provides an airspace where the air remains warm and the foil vapour control layer protects against condensation.
