Why Invest in a New Roof?

Older roofs, weathered by years of facing down the elements, begin to suffer problems that over a long enough period of time can really begin to cost an arm and a leg; think damaged leadwork, slipped tiles and moss growth. At this point, it’s simply more cost effective to invest in new roofs, saving time, money and a lot of stress; after all, a leaking roof can be a huge drama that we’re all better off without!

Another great reason to have our roofers build brand new, high quality pitched roofing, is that it can drastically improve the kerb appeal of your property. In fact, research shows that new roofs can provide a 63% return on investment should you ever decide to sell up and move elsewhere in Maidstone, Tonbridge or Tunbridge Wells. On top of this, every time you return home or welcome visitors, you have the satisfaction your property is looking like a million bucks!

So choose Roofing First to draw up a plan that doesn’t just meet your requirements, but blows away your expectations. As well as pitched roofing, we build long-lasting modern flat roofs out of felt, GRP and EPDM.

Types of Roof

Slate Pitched Roofing – If you’re looking for something that’s strong, hard-wearing and brings a classic aesthetic to the table, slate may just be the material for you. It’s one of the most common choices for pitched roofing, not just because of the aforementioned reasons, but because it’s naturally mould and fire resistant, while absorbing very little water – an important trait that ensures it’ll keep your Maidstone, Tonbridge or Tunbridge Wells home warm and dry all year round.

Flat Roofs – When selecting roofing for a garage, extension or outbuilding, you’d be crazy to not consider the various advantages that flat roofs offer over pitched roofing. Not only are they a cheaper, easier option, but they’re perfectly tailored to these applications in terms of both form and function. We work with three different materials:

  • Felt – The cheapest option due to the low cost of materials, felt makes for well-insulated yet breathable flat roofs.
  • EPDM Rubber – Lasting up to 50 years when looked after properly, these provide exceptional water resistance and are easy to repair should a problem arise.
  • GRP – Perhaps the toughest material on the market, with a long lifespan and naturally low maintenance character; recommended in most situations.

Tiled Pitched Roofing – We can supply a range of clay and concrete tiles in different sizes, shapes and colours, allowing you to get creative with a roof replacement. Tiles are ideal for new roofs as their interlocking form ensures they’ll hold steady in even the most challenging of conditions, e.g storms and high winds. Clients in and around Maidstone, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells can choose tiles from prominent manufacturers like Redwood Renewables and Marley Eternit – as well as lesser known, but equally respectable brands.

Roof Windows – As well as handling roof replacements, we install roof windows to help bring light and air into otherwise stuffy attic spaces. This can be an essential pre-requisite when it comes to converting a loft from empty, neglected storage space, into a fully functioning part of a Maidstone, Tonbridge or Tunbridge Wells property. Our roof windows and sky lights, which include pivot and top-hung windows, are customised to your needs, making for a truly bespoke service from the first choice amongst roofing companies in Kent.

The new roofs we construct in and around Maidstone, Tonbridge and Tunbridge add serious value to properties. To book a consultation, call 01622 438 252 or 07543 092 873.
