Gutter Repair will be required when your gutters have suffered damage but this is usually caused by leaves, ice or heavy rain.

Commercial Roofing

For our commercial roofing clients , our roofers offer a wide selection of roofing materials. We install everything from metal roofs to standing seam roofs and flat roofing, and can provide the best protection for your commercial property when it comes time for replacement or installation.

Selecting which type of material is right for you will depend on how often the roof will need upkeep in terms of cleaning, as well as what type of roofing warranty you are looking for.

Commercial roofing involves installation roofs such as rubber roofing, metal roofing, and wood shingle roofs. Tiling for roofs, or roof slates, are key considerations to be made.

Metal roofing installation involves the installation of metal roofing material such as aluminum or steel, often onto an existing roof. These materials are more durable than other options and have a long lifespan, but they can be difficult to install and require maintenance for the life of the roof’s use

Rubber roofs provide a great price point without requiring any kind of upkeep – while standing seam roofs are the more expensive option, they can last up to 50 years or more.

Wood shingle roofs provide a classic look that many people like and install quickly but require regular cleaning in order to maintain their appearance.

While some roofing contractors in Derby are not able to offer these services, you can rest assured our roofers are a reliable commercial contractor and we will not toy with your roofing project. We deliver true value to our clients.

Fascias and Soffits

Fascias and Soffits services by roofing contractors entails the installation, repair or replacement of these items on the outside and inside corners of your property. This will be required if the current fascias and soffits are too high, have deteriorated or need replacing. Deterioration could be as a result of weather conditions, being made of the wrong material or just becoming tatty and dated. If repairs are not undertaken on time on fascias and soffits, then the roof will not have proper ventilation and could cause damage to other areas of your property.

Flat Roofing

Trust our roofers for your flat roofing which involves the following roof types :

Built up roofing

This is a flat roofing system that uses two or more layers of waterproof material. Built up roofing is constructed from a series of layers that may consist of underlayment, roofing felt (tar paper), a layer or two of shingle material and finally the topmost protective surface. Roofing felt, usually reinforced with a waterproof membrane on top and base layers of tar or asphalt.

Built up roofing is used for all types of roofs such as residential roofs, commercial roofs and industrial storage buildings.

Plastic Roofing

This is intalled in various types and designs, and can be installed on new or existing structures. The roof is designed to last about 50 years, but the material does not require any maintenance once it has been installed.  Plastic Roofing also comes in various colors which help protect against UV damage.

Plastic roofing provides excellent insulation from cold temperatures and thus helps reduce heating costs. Plastic roofing is typically viewed as a permanent installation, but can be removed with relative ease when necessary to prevent storm damage or other incidents from occurring.

Plastic Roofing also provides excellent insulation against noise levels and will help keep sound inside of the home while still allowing air flow in and out of the building for ventilation purposes.

The type of plastic roofing are as follows

EPDM Roofing

EPDM is the best option for people with pets or small children as it is possible to install this type of roof in an area that has been damaged by animals, without damaging the integrity of other parts of the roof. We provide roofing solutions to both residential and commercial buildings, including roof repairs.

Loft Conversion

Even as professional roofers, we have loft conversion specialists in our team as partners. Loft conversion involves using the ceiling height of your loft area to create a bedroom, bathroom or playroom. This falls under roofing specialty because it requires a specially made roof. If you need to build up your loft area, we can provide a comprehensive and professional service from start to finish – including preparing the ceiling for insulation and installing it with our own materials. We’ll then complete the project by providing either Velux windows or skylights, finishing off any plastering work required before finally painting the new room ready for furniture and decorations.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do roofers charge UK?

Roofers in Derby and the United Kingdom generally charge around £90-120 per hour, but cost depends on scope of work and specific conditions of you roof.

Why is roofing so expensive?

The cost of roofing is affected by  a number of factors, such as the type and quality of materials used. For instance, a material like slate is much more expensive than asphalt shingles. In addition to this, if you have a complex roof with many angles or valleys for water runoff, your roofing contractor will need to do additional work in order to make those slopes functional enough so that they don’t leak. All of these considerations contribute to the relatively expensive cost of roofing in the United Kingdom. However, Derby Roofers has the experience and expertise to give you the best deal on you roofing. We have a more extensive discussion on the various aspects of roofing costs on this page.

How do I find local roofers?

Local roofers are necessary for any residential or commercial roofing project. A local company can often provide better insight to the type of work that is needed because they are familiar with your area and have seen similar roofs in the past – this experience will help them understand how best to address your specific needs, so you want someone who has knowledge about roofing materials and regulations. The last thing you want when paying for an expensive project like this is surprise bills from different companies, which happens all too often when hiring someone who isn’t local or reputable. We discuss this question on finding a good roofer further on this page.

Should I pay a roofer upfront?

A roofer should never expect or ask for payment up front before the work has been completed. A reputable contractor will be very clear about how and when they will charge, so if this is not clearly stated at the beginning then it’s a red flag that you’re dealing with someone who isn’t as professional as they let on. Many companies will require payment at the end of each job, but some may offer a deposit if it’s your first project with them.

Can you live in a house while the roof is replaced UK?

Yes, it’s certainly possible to live in a house while the roof is being replaced. The time it will take depends on what type of work needs done and how much there is to do. Some projects may only require one day where others may need more than a week depending on size and complexity. If your roofer has suggested that you move out, then you can be sure that it’s going to take a bit more time.

How often should roof Be Replaced?

A roof is an important part of your home that you might not notice until it starts leaking or breaking apart. Even then, a regular inspection for potential problems can be done every six months according to National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC). If you are afraid heights and need help from someone else up there with them when they do the survey; try asking one of their family members who lives nearby if possible because local contractors will come out at this time too. Read more information on roof replacement frequency for various types of roof and roof tiles.

Roofing in Derby’s rich culture, from historic to modern building architecture.

It is no surprise that roofing and architecture in Derby go hand-in-hand, and whether you’re just visiting the city or you live there, it’s not hard to see why some of the most popular types of roofs include plain tiles, which are dull and lack ornamentation; patterned tiles such as pantiles or interlocking tiles; decorative ridge tiles; green roofs with plants growing on them. People have been living in homes for hundreds of years now, so naturally, styles have changed over time. One thing that has always remained constant though is the desire to have an aesthetically pleasing house/building/roof. Although many different materials have been used over the centuries to create roofs, perhaps one of the most widely used has been clay tiles. The city of Derby was once a large producer of high-quality clay roofing tiles. Clay tile roofs are by far the most popular in Derby architecture. If you visit an old or historic building in the city, there’s a good chance it will have a clay tile roof. Another reason for their popularity is that they were very cost-effective and easy to use – even people with little experience could put them up! In addition, many types of buildings from churches to homes could benefit from using this material as it was flexible enough to be able to cope with different temperatures and weather conditions. Furthermore, due to the type of clay tile roofs found on older structures in Derbyshire, particularly cottages and farmhouses, they have a chance of staying in good condition for many more years.
