Where flat roofs are concerned, the question I am often asked is,
“What is the best system to use?”

The answer is always, That depends on what you want it to look like,
What are you going to with the roof and how much do you want to spend?

Condensation in Loft Spaces and other Roof Voids

This is the time of year (in the Northern latitudes) when condensation can become a problem.  We are all encouraged to install bigger and better insulation to keep our homes and offices warm without spending a fortune on higher energy bills.

However, with every silver lining, there is usually a cloud on the horizon.
As you cram more and thicker mineral wool into the loft
the inside of your roof slopes start to run with condensation.

This is where moist air comes into contact with air, or a surface,
which is at a lower temperature because warm air holds
more moisture than cold air.

In severe cases, it can even appear to “rain” in the roof space!

So what can you do about it?

Flat Roof repairs regularly carried out by Mayfield Roofing include bonding felt in hot bitumen, and replacing or over-laying with Rubber Roofing.

There are two types of Rubber Roofing for Flat Roofs.

The most common and most cost effective is the single sheet EPDM system made by ClassicBond and Firestone and other American companies.  These are effectively, a large rubber sheet, held down with very strong adhesives.  There are a few variations of the theme, with fleece backing or other novelties but they are all the same basic system.

By far the best Rubber Roof System is the German engineered Resitrix System.  This is more than twice as thick as the basic systems and it is Hot Air Welded at the details.  Coupled with its non-slip surface, Resitrix is the Rolls Royce system for your flat roof

VAT Increase January 1st 2011

If you are anything like me, you are probably sick to your back teeth
with all of all the signs outside Pubs and restaurants reminding
you to book your Christmas Party with them!

These signs appear about mid August and stay on show until
they are replaced with the “Book Your Easter Party” with us signs
that appear about mid January.

Rather than book a lunch in three months time, I am someone
who lives in the hear and now and would rather concentrate on
today’s lunch and let tomorrow take care of it’self!

However, the “here and now” is fine where lunch is concerned
but when it comes to TAX, that is a different ball game.

Take Notice; On January 1st 2011 The Rate of VAT in the UK
Will Increase from 17½% to 20%

Only 2½% you think, no big deal!

OK if you are a tax collector but not OK if you want you house repaired

Let us suppose you are contemplating house repairs or improvements
that could cost about £5,000.00

If you wait until “After The Christmas Party” to do the work
You will have to pay an extra £125.00 VAT

Just small change for the likes of David Cameron or Gordon Brown
but the Cost Of The Christmas Party for the rest of us

You get no benefit for this extra money, it is just extra TAX

If you are contemplating house repairs, DO IT NOW
Don’t wait for the Tax Increases
