  • Flat Roof Repairs


    October 03 2018

    Topseal is the UK’s leading supplier of GRP flat roofing systems and we boast a product which is making flat roof repairs quicker, more affordable yet still every bit as long lasting.

    Our products have been installed across millions of square metres of roof across the UK, that’s on all types of buildings - residential, commercial and buildings which present unique challenges.

    The Direct Lay system can be applied on top of failed flat roofing. This is a BBA-approved flat roof repair that can be carried out without first having to remove the failed roof - the new roof is simply installed over it creating a watertight, perfectly sealed roof that still comes with our 20-year guarantee.

    The Direct Lay system also cuts down on disruption. It is a cold-liquid applied solution with no heat generated - in most cases business can carry on as usual while the flat roof refurbishment is undertaken.

    This is also a system where waste is minimised - after all, there is no old roof to dispose of - and so time and cost both reduced.

    There is a wealth of information on this site, but two useful links are copied below.

    We would also be happy to answer any queries you might have, please get in touch by calling us on 01423 886495 or by visiting this page.

    Flat Roof Repairs - The Proven Choice

    It is, of course, easy to say we have unmatched products, can we back up our claims to be market leaders?

    We believe our independent reviews speak of our quality. On Homepro we average more than 9 out of 10.

    A quick check of their independent reviews will then confirm that only companies with superb reputations become Topseal installers - after all, our reputation and success is dependent on all installations being carried out courteously and professionally.

    Any installer carrying out repairs to your flat roof - however basic or small the repair - will have been through our training programme and had their jobs vetted for quality. Your repair will also come with a minimum of a 20-yearn guarantee - and we can only be so liberal with guarantees because issues are so rare.

    On occasion, the Direct Lay might not be the system to use for a flat roof repair.

    Our approved installers can talk you through the options and advise you as to which product is most suitable for the job.

    We have a full range of flat roofing repair options, including everything from green roofing to the hardest wearing roofs for commercial properties with up to 40-year guarantees as standard.

    Flat Roof Repairs - FAQs

    You might still have a few questions or want more information.

    We have tried to answer common queries in our FAQs page, answering queries such as ‘are the roofs fire retardant’ (yes, and to the highest standards) and‘does the guarantee continue if we sell the property’ (yes, but please give us details of the change of ownership).

    Another common question is whether you will be visited by a salesperson. Absolutely not. If you want an obligation-free quote, then a trained installer will carry out a site visit and then give you that quote. However, these are not sales people and no pressure sales tactics are employed.

    Whatever the issue with your flat roof - whether it is ripped, it is no longer waterproof, it is an eyesore or any combination of problems, Topseal and our approved installers have the experience to carry out remedial work.

    Please get in touch to get details of your approved local installer; this is a great chance to check out their credentials.
