Environmentally-friendly, carbon-reducing roofing in Wallasey

Carbon Reducing Roofing in Wallasey

We talk a lot about how important it is for everyone to do their bit to help save the planet, and a lot of people could help out by replacing their roof! In partnership with the National Federation of Roofing Contractors’ (NFRC) CompetentRoofer scheme, we at Maxiflow make it our mission to achieve this goal for as many people as possible.

Did you know that there is a government policy in England, Wales and Scotland that requires all new roofs, and all roofs undergoing works that cover 50% or more of its surface, to be thermally efficient? The requirements are laid out in Part L of the Building Regulations, and state that roofs need to have extra thermal insulation added to bring them up to a higher standard. This can include measures like a new layer of waterproofing, which can do wonders for upgrading a building’s thermal efficiency.

Clay tile domestic roofing in Wallasey by Maxiflow

For example, at a recent domestic roofing job in Wallasey, Wirral, we helped a family significantly reduce their carbon output. The visible works on the property involved stripping off their existing roof tiles and re-covering the roof in 10″ x 6″ plain clay tiles. What you can’t see from the photographs is the layer of heat-retaining insulation that we added, alongside a felt underlay which allows moisture to drain away from the roof. We also renewed the property’s roofline by fitting all-new uPVC fascia boards, soffits and gutters.

The neighbours were very impressed with the lack of disruption to themselves and how your team cleaned up each day.
