The main function of your roof is of course to keep it watertight, protecting your property and family from the elements. Roof is a highly visual part of your building, adding to its character. We have the necessary skills and experience to provide a roof that not only looks good and is supplied at a competitive price, but will also remain watertight for many, many years to come.
There comes a time in the life of every property where money spent on maintenance of your tile or slate roofing is simply not money well spent. Within a certain space of time, your existing tile roof or slates will start to deteriorate, and you may get water ingress into your home. Tiles become porous, felt rots and becomes ineffectual and batoning begins to crumble and fail.
At Lucas Construction we can offer you a complete re-roof service at a lower price than you would think.
People assume that re-roofing their home is a very expensive job.
This need not be the case.
The job include:
- Removal and disposal of all existing tiles
- Removal of all tile batoning and counter-batoning
- Removal of all old felt
- Removal of damp or rotten sarking boards where necessary
(Our environmental policy is never to remove wood in good condition)
- Fitting of new Breathable membrane
- Fitting of new treated timber batoning and counter batoning
- Fitting of new roof tiles, ridging and verge
The re-roofing job is usually combined with the replacement of your existing timber fascias and soffits with new UPVC products, meaning that everything in this area is new and you are not at risk of any rot within the roofline area transferring to your new roof.
Maintaining your existing woodwork is not only time consuming, it costs money too. Replacing your old roofline with quality, weather-resistant, long-lasting UPVC that needs neither painting nor repairing, no matter what the weather. It make sense in long run. With over 20 different colours and natural wood grain effect UPVC is leading in the way in the Roofline industry.

Fibreglass flat roofing
Traditional flat roof coverings rely on bitumen, lead or asbestos. Felt is the most common roof covering onto hot bitumen but unfortunately felt breaks down in Britains weather and the strip laid method creates seams which are obvious areas of weakness and prone to leaking. These factors combine to give the traditional felt roof covering a very unpredictable lifespan, needing constant repair and eventually replacement. Fibreglass is the superior choice for creating maintenance free flat roofs. It gives you the peace of mind that you no longer have to worry about the problems of leaking and bubbling generally associated with felted flat roofs. The material is strong enough to be walked upon, giving customers the opportunity to make use of their roof space. A range of colours is also available, ensuring we can combine a desirable look with a material which out-performs all its rivals.
A properly laid fiberglass roof will last for at least 30 years with no measurable deterioration.
TThe benefits of green roofs have finally been recognised in the UK, which has lead to the first direct policy to deliver green roofs in the UK.
Green roofs have multiple benefits from water attenuation, adapting to climate change, CO2 reduction and increasing biodiversity.

The result is a high quality, safe roof with low maintenance.
