Roofing Accessories and Chimney Work
During the installation of tiled roofs, we can incorporate a variety of accessories that enhance the roof’s performance. These range from liquid waterproofing to textured cladding systems.
We can also carry out chimney work too if your property has one. Our Bournemouth team are trained in all aspects of chimney work, from lead work and chimney reduction to bird proofing, flaunching, C-Caps, and even chimney removal.
We are approved installers of Velux windows, so if you’re looking for high-performance roof lights, skylights, and lanterns, look no further. Many utilise their loft space as an extra living space, and Velux windows are specially designed to be incorporated into the roof structure.
Once fitted, you’ll enjoy increased natural light, lower energy bills, and your preferred choice from a range of shapes and styles.
Roof Lights, Skylights, and Lanterns
Roof lights and skylights are common fixtures in loft conversions, and lanterns are often found installed in orangeries. We’re approved Velux installers, so you’ll always have your choice of the best options around. We have options to fit both pitched and flat roofs, ensuring plenty of natural light throughout.
If you are planning on having the roof of your property replaced, perhaps as part of a loft conversion or having an orangery added, we can add these windows as part of the process.
More Than Just Tiled Roofing
Here at AKT Roofing, we supply more than just tiled roofs, roof lights, skylights, and lanterns. We also offer the following roofing services in Bournemouth:
- Slate Roofs
- EPDM – Single-Ply Roofing
- Alwitra – Single-Ply Roofing
- Asphalt Roofing
Slate roofs are a type of tiled roof that’s comprised of stone slabs made from slate. Roofing slates are used widely throughout the industry, and these roof types are a common fixture throughout the UK. Slate is one of the most durable materials available, so while slate is expensive, the upfront cost is outweighed by the sheer lifespan of the roof.
Flat Roofing Types
In addition to pitched roofs, we also have the capability here at AKT Roofing to oversee the installation of flat roofing, Bournemouth customers. Flat roofing has not had the best of track records, with older systems prone to splitting, cracking, pooling water, and other issues.
The new systems available today from the likes of Alwitra are leaps and bounds ahead of their predecessors. We’ve listed below the three main types of flat roofs that offer – EPDM, Alwitra, and asphalt.
EPDM single-ply roofing, Bournemouth customers, is, as the name implies, a flat, synthetic polymer-based material that serves as a single-layer waterproofing solution. It represents one of the best options for modern flat roofs as it is highly resistant to splitting, tearing, and cracking. It’s also highly effective at keeping out cold air and water, keeping the property warm and dry.
Alwitra – Single Ply Roofing
Alwitra single-ply roofing systems comprise a high polymer alloy of ethylene vinyl acetate terpolymer (EVA) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This is a high-performance, purpose-made thermoplastic that ensures unbeatable durability. These single-ply systems are suitable for all roof types, Bournemouth customers, as well as all application methods.
Asphalt roofing is a type of flat roofing commonly used for commercial jobs in Bournemouth. The process involves melting the asphalt before pouring and spreading (while hot). Asphalt roofs are versatile and durable, provide a clean finish, and are very easy to repair.
Other Services We Offer
Of course, no roofing job ever gets going before a thorough survey has been performed. And our expertise doesn’t end with roofing surveys, installations, and repairs. We also handle other requests, such as fascias, soffits, guttering, and cladding, Bournemouth customers.
Fascia, Soffits, and Guttering
Fascias, soffits, and guttering don’t just enhance the appearance of the building; they protect it too. Fascias and soffits provide a sort of protective barrier, shielding the building materials from the elements. Guttering, of course, is responsible for channelling rainwater off the roof and away from the property.
To avoid water damage, make sure your fascias, soffits, and gutters are up to spec. At AKT Roofing, we can replace all fascias, soffits, and gutters. Plus, we carry out uPVC work on porches, garages, and Dormers. We can even tackle Deep Flow Rainwater Systems. Plus, we can renew your existing fascias, soffits, and gutters, Bournemouth customers, if they are still in reasonably good condition.
Cladding is often installed over brick, masonry, and concrete. Not only does cladding improve the property’s aesthetics, but it also protects these materials and improves energy efficiency too. We supply cladding in a range of colours and textures with options from the Fortex range that come with a ten-year guarantee.
We install lightweight cladding that boasts an excellent A+ Energy Rating awarded by the Building Research Establishment (BRE). To learn more, call our Bournemouth team today.
Before we can determine the right course of action, we must first assess your roof. Roof surveys help us to determine what work is required and how much it will cost you. We provide competitively priced surveys using state-of-the-art drone technology. Drones can reach the roof with the operator safely on the ground – no need to erect scaffolding.
We can collect images and other useful information and even carry out party wall surveys. Drone inspections/ surveys start from just £145 (plus VAT) and are carried out by trained and insured operators.
