Alpha Team Flat Roofing


What we do


Alpha Team Flat Roofing specialise in superior quality flat roofing systems. As well as offering free advice to homeowners we carry out complete refurbishment of existing roofs and undertake new roof installations including all timber and structural work. We use 2 systems - EPDM and GRP. EPDM is a time tested, super durable, maintenance free EPDM rubber roofing system developed and manufactured by The Firestone Rubber Co. GRP is perhaps better known as Fibreglass and has been around for decades. GRP is an incredibly strong and durable product that has made its transition from keeping boats afloat to a specially manufactured UV stable material for roofing systems.

Commercial grade roofing systems available for every home in Essex

We like to think that the residential market should have access to the same products that the commercial sector has. The commercial sector is predominantly architect driven and is a great benchmark to see which products perform the best in terms of reliability and longevity. Over the last 50 years, Firestone EPDM has been specified for some of the worlds largest and most prestigious buildings, proving itself time and time again.

EPDM is currently protecting roofs for Ford, Honda, McDonalds, Esso, Center Parcs, Coca Cola, Marks and Spencer and Toyota to name but a few.

What you can expect of us


Alpha Team firmly believe in the following:

"Quality is never an accident, it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skilful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives".

William Foster

We like to look after our customers. Typically, we cater for those that appreciate quality of workmanship above all else which is why we take time to ensure that attention to detail is present in every job. If it's not to a standard that our tradesmen would accept in their own homes then it's not yet complete. Where others adopt a "that'll do" attitude is where we are leagues ahead.
