Flat roofing is becoming a more popular choice for modern architecture. This is because it offers a sleek design and low maintenance. There are many types of materials available for the construction of flat roofs, from EPDM to felt. Our roofing contractors provide an array of options to our clients in York, Tadcaster and the surrounding areas. With many years’ experience, we provide a high standard of workmanship.
We work efficiently, focusing on the health and safety of our team, customers and the public with every project we undertake.
Unlike pitched roofing, flat roofing is an almost horizontal roof that has a slight angle to it, allowing adequate drainage of rainwater. These roofs are mostly used for commercial buildings, garages or house extensions. Our team works on flat roofing for domestic clients who want a modern and minimalistic style for their home.
When we construct flat roofing, we provide all roofing services.

Below is a list of materials we use for flat roofing:
GRP flat roofs are also known as fibreglass roofs. GRP stands for glass reinforced polyester and is a reliable roofing option. With KA Roofing, you have the assurance of safe and professional GRP application because we are certified fibreglass installers. In addition, these types of roofs have a 20-year lifespan.
Torch-on felt is a flat roofing system that involves layering 2-3 sheets of felt, also known as bitumen. Our roofing contractors melt weld the first sheet to the flat roof surface with a specialised torch. We repeat this process, adding the remaining sheets. By doing this, we create an impermeable and waterproof seal.
EPDM is a type of rubber used for flat roofing. It is made up of two main components, ethylene and propylene, which are derived from natural gas and oil. Unlike torch-on felt, we apply EPDM using a rubber adhesive. In addition, only one layer is needed, resulting in an efficient installation process.
