Kevin Gibbs is a third generation local builder with multiple house builds under his belt and a dislike of any kind of flat roof!
When he was forced by a planning decision to have a flat roof on his own home you better believe he did some significant research.
The result made him very happy with the advice, service and the outcome.

Single or multiple plots, we work with every kind of development – managing the flat roofing work from initial spec to install.
It’s all about keeping the project running, on time and on budget. And making sure no problems are stored up for the future. We’ve seen works grind to a halt when flat roofs were wrongly specified. So our role is to steer that phase of the build, with no “nasty surprises”.
We know that roofing contractors are notoriously
unreliable. Failing to be on site at their appointed time in the schedule – or offering no flexibility when the build hits a delay.
And we know you simply can’t afford to work that way. The knock-on effects are too severe – so we won’t let it happen.
When we work with you, we become your flat roofing partner, with full accountability. So we’ll specify. We’ll supply. We’ll build the structural roof, working with your builders for a seamless handover.
Then we’ll fit the waterproofing layer, taking care of every last detail. Even co-coordinating follow-on works like decking, slabs or green space.
We work closely with architects, who keep telling us the same thing: they find it incredibly hard to specify a flat roof, because there’s so much misinformation flying around.
It creates problems. Every week, we see architect’s drawings with specs taken in good faith from flat roofing websites. And every week, we have to recommend – sometimes drastic – changes.
Because the spec ignores major flaws in materials and methods. So if you’re specifying a new site, let’s work together from the off. Tell us about the project, and what the client wants – in terms of appearance, maintenance, budget, function and more.
Let us know. And we’ll put a watertight spec together, including a fully costed bill of materials and works.
You’ve got a whole site to run. Permits, Highways, Building Control and not to mention an ever increasing amount of health and safety legislation to keep you up into the wee hours of the morning!
Trades. Materials. It all falls on your shoulders, and no-one seems capable of managing themselves!
So we’ll be one less headache – taking care of the flat roofing work without draining your time and energy. Just bring us in at the planning stage, and we’ll work with you through to the end.
