Intensive and Extensive Green Roofing Contractors
Intensive green roofs are the heavy-weights of the green roof world. In essence, they are parks or gardens on roofs. Intensive green roofs have deeper soils and are heavier than extensive green roofs. They therefore need to be installed on a much stronger structure. Extensive Green Roofs are designed to offer a low maintenance, lightweight system with no general access. Typically they would consist of a thin layer of substrate growing medium to keep weight and depth to a minimum.
We are specialist installers of both Intensive and Extensive Green Roofs.

How to identify problems on your flat roof
The object of any roof is to stop water from getting in. As accredited experts in flat roofing maintenance we can guide you through what to look out for now, before any major problems occur in the future.
A pond of water on your roof is not a good look. Long-standing water will always find a way of escape, generally through your roof.
Any signs of moss, lichen, or weeds indicates that there has been water build-up on your roof.
The ponding water may have escaped or evaporated, but it will leave the signs of a watermark, this can be dark or light depending on the roof surface.
Flat roofing gradient
A flat roof should not be 100% flat. There must be a slight gradient for the water to drain off. Ideally between 1 in 40 and 1 in 80. Borrow a meter long spirit level to check the angle.
Stretching or cracking
At the corners or joints can be caused by age. The flexible materials that make up the waterproof layers of your roof dry out, rip, or wear away.
Subsidence can cause significant movement to a building’s structure which will lead to tears and cracks in a waterproof membrane.
A previous owner may not have been careful when carrying out repairs. Look out for materials that do not match, poorly placed screws and missing nails as well as puncture holes.
If you see a bubble in your roof membrane beware. If it bursts it may give direct access to water into the building.
Be sure that water can run freely in all the guttering around the house and across the roof.

Flat Roofing Projects
I am pleased to recommend Ian's team at Acclaim Contracts for roofing work. I have completed a number of successful projects with Ian and his team and found their quality of work to be excellent. With most projects being in sensitive education settings, communication with the client is critical. Ian always takes a strong personal interest in projects which helps everyone.
I was really pleased with the company. I think there were some initial teething issues due to Mick being on holiday when the job first started, but these were resolved quickly by yourself and it was helpful that we were in text communication. From my point of view, the job seemed to run really smoothly. Nas was our main line of communication and he was very professional and helpful. The job was completed on time, and there was minimum disruption to the school despite it being such a big job.
In terms of after-service, the company have responded very promptly to any queries / snagging issues and resolved them immediately. I think the service given by Acclaim has really been good – particularly when I compare it to the experiences that colleague Heads have had having similar jobs done by different firms.
