Balconies and Roof Terraces
IntroductionA roof terrace is an elevated area of a building that can be used as a garden or social area.
A balcony is usually a smaller area that projects from the building and is usually and extension to one room and is also accessed from that room.
Make the most of your flat roof space and convert it into a valuable living area where you can entertain, barbeque, sunbathe or watch the world below go by. With a huge range of railings, glass balustrades and features available, create yourself a space which will give your property the X-factor and add value to your home at the same time.
All of our flat roofing systems are suitable for use on terraces, walkways and Roof Gardens.
Our GRP and Single-ply membranes have been fully tested to withstand the extra weights of both slabs, decking, paving and green roof coverings when installed to the correct specifications.
There's nothing like sitting on top of your roof in a well-designed garden area, especially if you are restricted with space on the ground floor. You will need to consider planning restrictions and the privacy of your neighbours, but solutions are usually available with frosted glass panels and privacy screens. We will come out and assess the suitability of your flat roof to ensure that it is both practical and affordable to convert this usually wasted space into a Grand Design.
We can arrange for the correct structural calculations to be carried out on your behalf and deal with the local planning authorities to ensure a smooth running project. Our terraces and balconies are all compatible with our range of insulation systems, whether flat PIR insulation or tapered cut-to-falls insulation boards to ensure total water run-off.
Maximising the space of a flat roof is a great way to add more living space in a property.
Bars, restaurants and clubs are now using these spaces as luxury hangouts. With the right design and the right roofing system, a well thought out terrace or balcony can add real value and an attractive place to sit and relax or create outdoor garden space. In the right situation, any of the 5 flat roof systems we offer at Stace Roofing can be used on these types of roof.
If the flat roof/floor of the area is going to be covered with either slabs, decking or tiles, it's essential that the roof coverings have had an ELD (Electronic Leak Detection) test before covering.
Finding you have a leak once the expensive covering has been put down is a very expensive mistake to make. This goes for both new and existing roofs.
Our GRP Fibreglass system is suitable for use as a terrace or balcony without the need to put down decking or slabs.
A beautiful coating of coloured quartz can be applied to a layer of adhesive on the top coat of the GRP system that creates a hard wearing and attractive area that compliments any building.
Choose from over 10 different colours of kiln dried quartz.
Timber or maintenance-free Non slip PVC composite decking?
PVC composite decking is also available in a huge range of colours and looks great in both modern and traditional settings. Choose from a huge range of natural pine, spruce or Western-Red cedar decking can be laid over a floating timber frame to create a beautiful natural finish yet light in weight.
A wide range of railings and glass screening is available for you to choose from to get that perfect look for your new terrace. If you cant find exactly what you are looking for, our network of fabricators can help you design and manufacture something original to your exact requirements.
After careful structural calculations have been prepared, it is possible to lay heavier coverings onto your terrace to create a more urban feel to your roof-top. Using the correct separating membranes, we can protect your new flat roof coverings to enable us to lay the new covering of your choice.
Railing posts and indiscreet rainwater outlets are available for all of our systems.
