Roofing First installs durable flat roofs that keep interiors both warm and secure. Our roofers fit new membranes across Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Hildenborough and Tunbridge Wells, and can repair damage to an existing flat roof in the Kent area. We install either felt bitumen, EPDM rubber or glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) to suit your needs, and as one of the leading roofing companies in the local region, manage the entire project from start to finish.

Flat Roof Membranes


  • Felt – A waterproof material with excellent durability, felt roofing is one of the most commonly applied systems in the South East. These membranes protect against moisture while keeping the roof insulated yet breathable. Ideal for garages and sheds with flat roofs, felt won’t shrink in high temperatures.
  • EPDM Rubber – Short for Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer, EPDM is widely applied to flat roofs in Maidstone, Hildenborough and Tonbridge. Roofing companies across Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells and Kent rely on this lightweight material, which is easy to cut to the shape of the roof and holds out against UV rays. When installed by the experienced roofers, EPDM may last around 50 years.
  • Glass Reinforced Plastic – A composite material made from processed strand mat glass fibres for a watertight membrane, GRP fibreglass is fast and efficient to apply. It takes around 24 hours for the resin to set. At Roofing First, we specialise in GRP applications.

The Benefits of GRP Flat Roofs


Roofing companies like ours recommend GRP fibreglass membranes due to their enduring strength and high level of protection. Our Maidstone roofers apply this premium product to homes throughout Kent, including the areas of Tonbridge, Sevenoaks, Hildenborough and Tunbridge Wells. Moulded to fit the shape of your flat roof, GRP comes with a topcoat – available in a wide array of attractive colours.


New GRP flat roofs include a 25-year guarantee but may last for over 40 years. If damage occurs, our roofers can provide fast-acting GRP roof repairs or apply a new membrane if needed.

Flat Roof Repairs


Damp and Water Damage


A flat roof may suffer from residual rainwater, which collects on the surface itself. This can cause the material to degrade over time, leading to issues like damp, cracks and problematic leaks. First among roofing companies in the Maidstone area, our team responds swiftly to perform the repairs that your roof needs.


Our roofers work hard to prevent such issues from reoccurring. We also repair gutters around Hildenborough, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells to ensure rainwater can flow to safely into the drainage system.


Blistering and Holes


Caused by vapour bubbles beneath the flat roof membrane, blisters may increase in size due to changing temperatures. As one of the area’s trusted roofing companies, we repair these problematic parts of the roof and can reapply the sheets if necessary. Regular checks after severe weather can help to identify blisters at an early stage.


Today’s membranes protect against high winds and wildlife far better than previous versions. However, if your roof in Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Hildenborough or Tunbridge Wells suffers from damage, we endeavour to set it right as quickly as possible.
