Many people choose to use a conventional roof when they are building a new property because it’s what people have been doing for years and it seems quite normal. However, there are missing out on the many benefits that other roofs can offer. I am talking particularly, about rubber roofing, and while tiles and slates can last about 20 years if the roof is checked on an annual basis, rubber roofing can last much longer than this and rubber roofs have been known to last for 30 to 50 years without the need for any major maintenance.
When it comes to rubber roof repair in Exeter, this is much easier to do also, and if you have a flat or a low-pitched roof, then you might be able to make the minor repairs yourself. Here are some of the many benefits of rubber roofing.
- Your rubber roofing is made from recyclable materials and so if you are concerned about the environment and you want to reduce your carbon footprint, then rubber roofing is an excellent choice.
- It is incredibly durable and weather resistant which is important in the United Kingdom due to the wet and windy weather that we experience here. It also has a high resistance to UV rays.
- It is also much easier to install which means that the roof is put on quicker and this saves you a significant amount of money. It is also very energy-efficient and this will save you money when it comes to your heating and cooling bills.
