FLAT ROOFING CONTRACTOR OVERVIEW

The market for flat roofing has shown some slight improvement over the last two years, having grown by around 3.5% in volume terms. Since 2012, key areas of growth in demand have included commercial offices, schools, leisure facilities, warehouses and infrastructure buildings. However, maintenance and repair work is also a key area of activity. Basic repair work by jobbing builders, using traditional bitumen felts, as opposed to higher performing reinforced bitumen membranes (RBMs) is a significant factor in the market and will have helped to sustain the market in recent years.

Over the medium term, to 2019, it forecast that demand will increase owing to growth in the development of key new build markets, notably industrial buildings and commercial offices, internet warehousing, free schools & city academies, university buildings and leisure facilities. In the industrial sector, it is anticipated that there will be a surge in growth in advanced manufacturing and R&D. Contractors output in the education sector is also expected to grow, mainly due to greater capital commitments among universities and free schools and also city academies.

The supply of waterproofing membranes is concentrated among relatively few suppliers, which are also key suppliers of vapour control layers, and the supply of insulation products is also limited to a relatively small number of UK manufacturers. While there is significant production of bitumen membranes and felts in the UK, import levels are significant, in particular within the single membrane and liquid waterproofing sectors.

Distribution is largely split between the specialist roofing merchants and general builders’ merchants, typically supplying smaller contractors and general builders, and also direct sales to contractors working on large projects. The contracting sector is polarised between a large number of very small, local firms and a relatively small number of national and large regional businesses. However, with the commercial and industrial sector accounting for around three quarters of installations, there are fewer companies providing flat roofing services.
