    Roofing Services

    Liquid Applied Roofing

    What's this? Click Here Liquid roofing involves the application of a monolithic, fully bonded, liquid based coating to a roof. The coating cures to form a rubber-like elastomeric waterproof membrane, capable of stretching and returning to its original shape without damage.

    Structural Waterproofing

    What's this? Click Here Hot-melt is a lightweight, yet tough and very flexible self healing monolithic membrane with guaranteed 100% bond to a properly prepared concrete substrate.

    Green, Biodiverse and Roof Finishes

    What's this? Click Here A green roof is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing medium, planted over a waterproofing membrane. It may also include additional layers such as a root barrier and drainage and irrigation systems.


    What's this? Click Here Metal roofs can be visually striking as well as incredibly durable long term. They often last 100 years and 50 year warranties are now common.

    Felt Roofing

    What's this? Click Here Felt roofs consist of two or three layers of sheet felt materials that form a dense, voidless and impermeable barrier. The felt roof system is built up of multiple layers of high performance felts and mastic asphalt over an insulated timber or concrete flat roof deck.


    What's this? Click Here Mastic asphalt roofing can be applied to form a continuous waterproof covering over flat, sloped or curved surfaces and can be worked around pipes, roof lights and other projections.

    Single Ply

    What's this? Click Here Single ply comes in roll form and offers maximum freedom of choice in roof design, performance and appearance. Single ply membranes are strong, flexible sheets composed predominantly of synthetic polymer. They can be cut and formed to fit around roofing features and existing roofs.

    Pitched Roofing

    What's this? Click Here Traditional Pitched roofs offer many advantages such as loft space, ease of insulating and tend to have much longer lifespans than flat roofs. They can be finished in a range of tiles and materials and add character to buildings.


    What's this? Click Here For all your building needs we at Essential Building Services are fully qualified and a well established company offering all aspects of domestic maintenance including: refurbishments, roofing, bathroom/kitchen fitting, flooring, tiling or any other simple jobs.

    I have used the services of Roland on 3 occasions to carry out works using a Hydrotech roofing system manufactured by Alumasc, following the initial site meetings with Roland the works have been undertaken as costed in the agreed timeframes with a good level of understanding of all Rams and H&S which were appropriately adhered to at all times, Roland was also able to advise and overcome some material interfacing issues we had on some upstands which was most helpful.
