QUALITY – Belmont Roofing operates an accredited Quality Management System to ISO 9001:2008 which has been in place since 1993. The success of the company relies upon customer satisfaction.
Many thousands of businesses have benefited from talking to our experts over the years as we offer independent advice and work closely with the market leading suppliers in sheeting and flat roofing products and can offer comprehensive insurance – backed guarantees when required.
Our surveyors will offer free, practical and unbiased advice.
If the roof can simply be patched we will tell you. If complete re-covering is the only solution we will take core samples to establish the construction details and the condition of the insulation. We will advise on whether you will need to increase the thickness of the insulation to meet current “U” values.
Over-laying is less disruptive and more cost effective but before offering this as a solution the roof should be inspected thoroughly by a competent and experienced roof surveyor/estimator. Core samples may be required to establish the roof “build-up” and to confirm the decking is structurally sound and dry and capable of being over-laid.
If the decking or insulation (if any) is saturated the cause may be condensation rather than roof leaks and over-laying may not be suitable.
There are systems available from Belmont Roofing to suit nearly every building design, from major refurbishment or new-build projects down to small residential developments, blocks of flats or commercial buildings etc.
We use a range of material to suit each building design or client requirement.
An old failed roof covered in granite chippings makes it difficult to locate and seal roof leaks,. Belmont stripped and replaced the roof with a mineral finished bitumen based felt which will give a new life expectancy of at least 20 years or so.
Guarantees: Having a job properly executed by a professional and established company and where quality is key and life expectancy of the system maximised is surely more important than a (so called) guarantee which are often unenforceable. We see countless failures where there had been “labour and material” guarantees” but the contractor is no longer trading and the manufacturer refuses to put their work right because they were unaware of the project.
Belmont can offer true bona fide specific project ” labour and material warranties” where requested and we will involve the manufacturer in specification writing and it will be them offering the warranty direct to the client. These can also be insurance backed.

Lead Alternative: Where lead is vulnerable to theft, Belmont can offer a lead coloured single ply alternative. By using traditional roll battens, the system closely resembles the traditional appearance of lead and satisfies planners- as well as frustrating thieves!
Ballasted systems are also available from Belmont Roofing.
