New EPDM rubber roof with trims. By removing the up stand at the leading edge above the window & giving the Sterling OSB boards a tilt then installing new fascias, soffits, gutters & drip edge we have eliminated the need for internal outlets in the roof deck. Outlets in a flat roof like this are usually the first place where the roof fails & can cause other problems such as getting blocked easily which can be difficult to unblock by their very nature or leaking inside the roof space.
This flat porch roof was flawed when the house was built because the outlet was the size of a 50 pence piece so the water traffic was unable to drain away causing it to gather in the corner eventually leading to roof failure. To solve the problem we have used the natural slight pitch of the roof to deliver the water into a new gutter & downpipe.
