"We're Very, Very Happy"

"Proactive weren't the cheapest quote but the people that came in cheaper were compromising on things that we weren't prepared to compromise on. for instance safety and I’m thinking if people compromise on safety what else can they compromise on!

The house feels much cosier now it also feels acoustically better. as a musician it feels acoustically better. I know that sounds really weird but it does. It's got a really nice solid feel to the house now. We are very, very happy.

I always felt that I could contact Stephen at Proactive and He always got back to me same day if there were any issues and the Installers were amazing. They told us every step of the way what they were doing next so we knew what to expect”

“I’m Over The Moon, The New Roof Terrace Looks Amazing!”

Commercial Balcony Refurbishment

“The original issue that I contacted proactive roofing was a leak on a flat roof. I Had a number of quotes  from companies that came to

take a look at it.

I chose proactive basically because they demonstrated a good knowledge on their products and the guarantee was obviously very attractive to us as a charity because we want to make sure that our buildings are safe and secure and in good condition for the long term

I have to say after all of the issues that we have on this project I’m absolutely over the moon with the finished product, it looks amazing!”

“I Will Definitely Recommend Them”

“Every time I needed a question answered, someone has been there at the end of the telephone and it’s great to be able to talk to someone rather than just emails. 

I had no issues, no problems, any questions were answered quickly, the price was right and the outcome and the quality just proves it all really so I’m very happy…...very polite, very professional and I will definitely recommend them.”

"I Knew They Would Do A Good Job"

“I just knew that the people I met from Proactive they would do a good job and it was as simple as that.

Money was quite important obviously but what I wanted was a good job done. I'm over 80 my wife is getting towards 80 and we should probably stay here for the rest of our lives. I wanted a confident job which I knew there wasn’t any leaks. It was as simple as that”

Without The Right Insulation, Your Flat Roof is
Burning Money – Every Month

Crazy as it sounds, most older flat roofs in the UK have little or no insulation. So every time the heating goes on, heat – and money – disappear through the rooftop!

If your flat roof is in that state, the good news is…we can put it right.

It will take some work, though. It’s not as simple as showing up with rolls of insulation and laying them in the roof. We need to look at the spec first, and take some remedial steps.

So – what type of roof are we looking at?

If it’s an old-style roof that hasn’t been touched for years…

You might have some basic rock wool insulation fitted between the joists. And chances are, there are ventilation gaps to let air flow through the roof.

This is an old method known as a COLD ROOF. It’s designed to blow away the condensation that forms on the structural deck - just like switching on your car’s air-con to blast away mist from the windscreen.

It’s all good in theory. But in practice, it causes more problems than it solves:

…The basic insulation gives very little protection. Heat escapes quickly.

…The ventilation gaps allow cold air to blow downwards, chilling the space below.

…Inside the roof, cold and warm air streams merge and turn to liquid. Condensation follows.

…Most of the condensation gets blown out by the air flow. But some of it clings on, and eats away at the timbers.

…Meanwhile, the roof has become a breeding ground for black mould and spores – a serious health hazard that needs to be treated urgently.

In other words, this outdated insulation method –

• Makes the roof vulnerable
• Raises your heating bills
• And puts your family at risk

That’s far from ideal! So these days, there’s a better way…

The Cold Roof Diagram

The new-style WARM ROOF

The Warm Roof Diagram

A Warm Roof uses solid PIR insulation boards that sit above the roof deck, topped by moisture-tolerant boards. This changes the ‘Dew Point’ where warm and cold air streams merge and turn to liquid.

This way, moisture is isolated before it can reach the deck - meaning condensation can’t form and weaken the structure.

As a result, there’s no need for ventilation gaps. They can be sealed, so there’s no downward draft and no way for warm air to escape.

So - once you convert from a cold to a warm roof, your heating bills will plummet!

What if it’s a newer roof?

Insulation problems are not confined to older roofs. New roofs have their troubles too – if they’re built by amateurs, who won’t take the trouble to install a Warm Roof.

A rogue roofer, for example, will skimp on insulation to save on costs. Often, they’ll leave it out altogether – and tell you it’s a “luxury extra”!

And cowboys, who botch through ignorance, are no better. They’ll leave you with basic rock wool, or sub-standard boarding.

Triggering draughts and condensation…all those problems again.

So what insulation do you need?

Whatever state your roof is in today, the end goal should be an insulated roof that meets the government’s insulation targets.

It makes sound economic sense. And it’s part of a legal requirement if you’re building a new roof - or refurbishing at least 50% of a roof that sits over a living space.

So any work we do for you will comply with Part L of the 2010 Building Regulations: Conservation of Fuel and Power.

There’s a lot of confusion around this, so it deserves an explanation.

The government wants to limit every property’s impact on the environment. So targets are set around “U-Values” – the measurement used to score building materials for energy efficiency.

A low U-Value is good, as it means less energy escapes. So your roof has to meet – or fall below – a maximum U-Value.

The rules state:

  • If the roof is already insulated, the maximum U-Value is 0.20
  • If you’re insulating from scratch, the maximum U-Value is 0.18
  • If compliance is a challenge, due to weight loading or height restrictions, the U-Value might be relaxed to a maximum 0.35

You can’t meet these targets with a Cold Roof using traditional rock-wool!
You’d need 120mm to achieve a U-Value of 0.20. So in a typical flat roof, you simply won’t have enough space.

But with a Warm Roof, it’s easy. 
PIR boards are high in density. With the right spec and fitting, they’ll achieve a U-Value as low as 0.11, with room to spare in the roof.

Keeping you well below the threshold, so your roof is fully compliant.

Your Warm Roof will lower your heating bills, eliminate condensation and meet regulatory targets. As you’ll see when we meet and devise a specification – free of charge.
