Forrest Roofing Contractors also offers a complete start-to-finish stripping and reroofing service for both refurbishment of existing properties and roofs for new build projects whether they have a pitched or a flat roof.
Let us provide you with an entirely new roof to replace an existing roof that has either reached the end of its service life or to update your roof with one of the many new tile designs order to give your existing property a brand new and contemporary look.
If you are looking for something bespoke by designing and building your own new home we can also provide high quality roofing services to your exact specifications for new build homes.
The years of experience that we have built up allows Forrest Roofing Contractors to give you advice on the whole range of modern roofing products available, suitable options for replacing roofs on listed and heritage properties and what is the best solution available to meet your exact situation and requirements.
Forrest Roofing Contractors covers the whole spectrum of reroofing projects from conservatories, garages and home extensions to entire replacement of the roof of both domestic and commercial properties – big or small we can handle them all.
We project manage the entire reroofing process ourselves including any related joinery, roughcasting and reinstatement works meaning that we take care of the entire new roof installation from stripping the old to completion and signing off meaning that you have no need to take time off to organise and arrange other trades, leaving you with nothing to worry about except enjoying the protection and warmth offered by your brand new roof.
Our qualified tradespeople have experience in the whole range of roof coverings available thus we can offer you the whole spectrum of materials, colours and finishes on offer that will most appropriately meet your new roof needs. We supply only quality roofing products that we have confidence in ourselves to ensure that your new roof offers many years of reliable service, including:
- Concrete tiles from the likes of Marley Eternit, Redland, Sandtoft and many others
- Slate roofing typically used on older properties but also slate-look replacement tiles
- Flat roofing products including asphalt, rubber and liquid roofing coverings (see our flat roofs page)
- Conservatory roofing and cladding replacement panels
- Garage roofing products including single ply and Firestone EPDM rubber coverings
We have seen first hand the effect a new roof can have on a property both from a practical but also from an aesthetic view. A new roof not only improves protection of your property but can also transform the look and add value to it. Even replacing a small area of roofing such as replacing a tired conservatory or garage roof can dramatically improve the appearance of your home overall.
In the west of Scotland, concrete interlocking tiles remain probably the most common roof covering for pitched domestic roofs but what may surprise you is the sheer range of styles and colours now available, a far cry from what was probably available when your existing home was built.
Modern tile manufacturing means you can have pretty much whatever colour, texture and shape you desire. That said, if you are looking for a like-for-like replacement in order to maintain the look of your property then established makers of quality roof tiles still make many of their original shapes, styles and colours ensuring that we can achieve as close a match to existing as we can if that is what you are aiming for.
Quality tiling systems such as Marley Eternit guarantee the integrity of their product for 30 years but we have seen installations that have lasted much longer.
Conservatory roof replacement
At Forrest Roofing Contractors we have many years’ experience in the repair and replacement of conservatory roofs across Glasgow and the west of Scotland area. Many existing conservatories were built as “sun rooms” when the glazing panel technology used for them was not particularly well-developed for this use meaning that the conservatory was uncomfortably hot (like a greenhouse) in summer and very cold and damp in the winter so they looked good from the outside but were often unusable as a room for much of the year giving a poor return on investment as a home extension.
Advances in roofing, insulation, ventilation and glazing panel technology allow us to address such problems and transform your conservatory into a room that is usable all year round, thus adding value to your home as well as increasing your overall usable living space.
Older conservatories can also appear dated and weathered, detracting from the overall look of your property so replacing your conservatory roof has both practical and aesthetic benefits. Conservatory roof replacement offers a chance to transform your existing conservatory with modern, energy-efficient panels at a fraction of the cost and inconvenience of demolition and replacement.
Conservatory roof repair
If you have a storm-damaged, leaking or tired conservatory we can supply and fit replacement panels or repair your existing conservatory (where possible) using high quality materials and best industry practice. We have experience of both glass and polycarbonate conservatories of all ages and styles. Our installers are trained and experienced which means that we have the confidence to guarantee the workmanship that goes into all of our conservatory roofing replacement and repair work.
