A bright, modern change to your home
One of the biggest changes to newer builds and properties is the energy efficiency levels of the materials installed. They are provided as an aim to reduce energy bills by keeping energy inside the home, rather than having it escape through gaps.
A lot of complaints from homeowners are usually concerned around their roofs – this is usually down to leaks, tears and the amount of maintenance they require over the years.
What they might not know is that a poor roofing system is one of the main causes for letting heat escape. That’s why we recommend instead, a flat rubber roofing system, which not only keeps the heat in but lasts a lifetime and is becoming a more stylish, modern addition to the home.
However, some homeowners in the past have been reluctant to make the change. A big question that comes up time and time again is “are rubber roofs expensive?” And the answer might surprise you. Initially, it might be – but in the long run rubber roofing systems will actually save you money across installation, maintenance and energy. Find out more about the cost of rubber roofing here.
