The SPRA Homeowners Guide reportedly provides helpful guidance to homeowners seeking a durable roofing solution with low environmental impact for their home renovation or construction project.
The guide provides concise help on design, materials, choosing a manufacturer and specialist contractor, insurance and durability.
There are also useful checklists for key stages such as obtaining quotations.
When combined with the home buildings and contents insurance scheme offered by GGFi, a single ply flat roof becomes a very attractive option.
Ronan Brunton, SPRA Technical Manager said: “Single Ply Roofing membranes have been widely used in commercial buildings in the UK since the 1970s, and it is still relatively new in the domestic market. However, single ply membranes are suited to almost any design challenge and can be used on all kinds of roof shapes. Indeed, a fantastic project (showcased on Grand Designs), won the SPRA 2018 Award for Innovation and it was also awarded Highly Commended in the Detail Award category.”
Cathie Clarke, SPRA CEO added; “At SPRA our focus is to promote quality and sustainability. We designed the Homeowners Guide so that it provides information in a clear, simple and easy to understand format. We want to support homeowners to achieve the best possible results on any given renovation or improvement project.”
