Heat insured for flat roofing
Heat needs to be applied to fuse the bitumen layers together, forming a watertight bond.

What does that mean?

This means that we have now added ‘heat’ to our insurance policy enabling us to work on roofs with flame guns and bitumen burners. We are indeed insured for flat roofing again!

We started out as flat roofing specialists so we are no strangers to the process. We have lots of experience and you can rely on the system to seal any leaks – permanently.

That’s 3 layers of bitumen felt, fused together to make one very watertight surface.

Why is ‘heat’ insured for flat roofing?

Universal Roofing - insured for flat roofingFor traditional flat roofing systems, you need to apply a lot of heat to the bitumen roofing materials and this increases the risk of fire, insurance companies charge a high premium for this additional level of cover. You can’t mess around with fire on a roof!

With demand growing again for this traditional flat roofing system, we have made the decision to go back to our roots and offer this ‘craft’ as one of our services. We can install complete new garages & roofs or repair existing bitumen installations.

If you have a bitumen felt roof that needs attention, we’d be happy to have a look at it. You’ll be surprised at the price compared to some systems, that’s why it’s making a comeback nowadays.

Due to market changes we are able to source felt at very competitive prices.
