A roofing project in Chelsea, SW3

Solar gain on older flat roof coverings is well documented problem. Solar gain is the heating effect of solar radiation on the flat roof surface. This heating effect will, in time, cause the surface, an asphalt flat roof for example, to deteriorate and slump causing cracks and fissures which will inevitably lead to water ingress.  Modern roof coverings can help to minimize solar gain and significantly increase the integrity of the roof surface, maximizing durability and increasing the roof’s life.

Below are some pictures of a recent Flat Roof Recovery domestic roofing project for a house in Chelsea, West London.  We were asked to recover an asphalt roof that was badly in need of repair. We overlayed the existing asphalt roof using the Sealoflex system and finished in white to help to reflect the heat and UV rays which cause solar gain, significantly extending the potential life of the roof.
