Roof Construction Colchester
Both Pitched and flat roofs have their own strengths and weaknesses:
The main weakness of a pitched roof is tile slip after heavy winds, ridge tiles can also become loose and need resetting in mortar while Bitumen felted flat roofs oxidise and crack with the extremes of temperature and eventually small leaks develop

Solar Energy - Heating

Colchester Large Energy Storage Tank
The secret to energy storage is in creating a large capacity storage solution with very efficient insulation to reduce energy losses to the surroundings
Colchester Heat Pump & Thermostat
A small pump and thermostat system will control water flow and minimise energy losses
Colchester Solar heating can be an economical addition to modern home heating solutions
Solar energy can be captured using roof mounted solar panels and used to heat a reservoir of water to slightly above ambient temperature; heat pumps and heat exchangers can then extract the energy for cheap hot water and heating

Colchester Flat Roof Repairs

Colchester Patching Felt Roofs
Usually, isolated roof areas may blister and crack causing localised leaking that can be patched for a long lasting repair
Colchester Bitumen Felt Roofs
Bitumen felt roofs generally last 10 to 20 years before needing removal and replacing
Colchester Flat Roof Flashings
When a flat roof is in contact with a building structure, then instead of the roof overlapping the edge of the building; for a water tight seal, it is sealed by connecting it to the adjacent building structure with lead or bitumen flashing: With time this can work loose and allow water to penetrate the edge seal
