EPDM Rubber & GRP Fibreglass Roofing
EPDM Rubber Roofing has many advantages over traditional bitumen that is currently the UK’s most used material for flat roofing. Unlike felt EPDM rubber roofing is a remarkable material that is flexible and easily bends with no stress to follow the contours of the roof and is not affected by the extremes of temperature and weather. It will not tear, split or crack with age. EPDM rubber roofing systems are widely used when installing and waterproofing green roofs.
Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) is comprised of polyester resin and chopped strand mat glass fibres, which are mixed together to form a laminate. GRP fibreglass has become one of the most popular forms of flat roofing systems because it is not only a strong material but doesn’t add too much extra weight to the structure.
While it has been around in one form or another since the 40s and 50s, the modern version is far superior and used throughout the construction industry.
Repointing & Rebedding
A roof’s bedding is the mortar which holds the ridge caps in place. Ridge caps can become loose, and this can be a sign of wear of the bedding’s wear. Bedding will shift and crack over time, which means that aged bedding can lead to an unstable roof which is not only visually unappealing, but also dangerous. A sound roof bedding is integral to your roof’s structure. This is why roof rebedding is so important.
We can provide the following ;
- Identify all cracks and affected bedding
- Undertake all re-bedding work with the highest quality.
- Carry out the job at the best possible cost for you

Chimney Repairs & Repointing
We offer a wide range of chimney services, including pointing, relining, inspections, pot replacements, chimney re-builds and more.
Chimneys have to withstand the weather on all sides while coping with the combustion chemicals that are released from a gas, wood, coal or oil fire. The old mortar can crumble and joints in the brickwork need to be raked and re-pointed with fresh mortar.
Lead flashing can also work loose and need to be replaced or repaired to make a weather tight seal around the base of the chimney. At Smiths Roofing we appreciate the level of urgency required when it comes to carrying out chimney repairs. Our roofing specialists are committed to providing a swift response, completing any chimney repairs efficiently and to the highest of standards at all times.
