Versatility is just one of many attributes our local roofers bring to the job. It makes good sense that as far as pitched, flat and felt roof repairs go, you’d feel more confident in a business that can bring you all these services, and more, under the name of a single company. It is just as important that the same roofing contractors work carefully, with minimum disruption, and have an impeccable safety record.
Abingdon Felt Roofing covers the Banbury, Bicester, Didcot, Kidlington, Oxford, Wantage and Witney areas as a specialist in pitched and flat roofing repairs. Please contact us on 01235 239631 for a responsive service, including emergency roofing, that’s always at a fair and competitive price.
Here, we look at our core repair services in detail.
This is a service where our local roofers mainly repair slate and tile roofing structures on domestic properties. A pitched roof is the inverted V-shaped style seen on most homes in the Oxfordshire area. This type of roof, with the appropriate care, can stay intact for many decades, but this won’t stop the accidental damage caused by high winds and storms. It is common for slates and tiles to dislodge or fall to the ground.
We can come out to inspect your roof, provide a quotation and, subject to your agreement, complete the required work. Whether you intend to pay for the damage yourself or use your insurer, we’ll perform a cost-effective repair using quality materials.
Some properties in the Abingdon, Banbury, Bicester, Didcot, Kidlington, Oxford, Wantage and Witney areas have flat roofs. Flat roofing repairs require a different approach from our local roofers. Felt has long been the most dominant material for this type of work, but, as with most trades, we’ve seen some significant developments over the years and can now install, repair or replace using modern EPDM rubber membranes.
Firestone RubberCover™ is our preferred choice of EPDM for flat roofing repairs. EPDM is a seamless, watertight roofing surface that withstands the impact of wind, rain and UV light. It is durable and needs very little in terms of maintenance.
Even our name is a strong indicator of where we specialise and no other company in Oxfordshire is quite as experienced as us when it comes to felt roof repairs. We’re not talking about the rolled felt and hot bitumen systems of yesteryear, but rather a more modern all-in-one membrane from IKO that makes the best of a torch-on application system. When completing felt roof repairs, this makes the installation side of the job safer for our local roofers.
And, for the customer, it is still a great opportunity to use our traditional felt roofing services. The difference with the IKO TGX felt system is that it copes well in all conditions and can last without needing repairs for as long as 15 years.
