A heat gun is a roofer’s ideal tool for welding a flat roof system such as a single ply membrane. Local Berkshire roofer Daryl Cooke from Roofing Matters Group can’t leave the house without their most important tool Leister Triac heat gun.
Flat roof installations are Roofing Matters Group’s speciality and their most requested service. Being an approved contractor for Sika/Sarnafil and a Premier contractor for Danosa, two of the best manufactures for single ply membranes, customers can’t resist the new age look for flat roofs.

The professional TRIAC heat gun proves its skills in all kinds of weather and at every place of use. Outside on the construction site, as well as inside and even in continuous use. The Traic heat gun enables high joining pressure to be applied. In addition, its slim design makes it a great choice to work with in tight spaces. As with all TRIAC products, the carbon brake protects the heat gun and the actively cooled protective tube protects users when working. Thanks to various nozzle heads, precise work is guaranteed.
Flat roofing systems are becoming more and more desirable. While in the past it was primarily seen simply as a great option for garages and extensions, today people are installing them to create eco-friendly green roofs or additional outdoor living space.
Single ply is a flat, synthetic polymer based roofing material that provides a waterproofing layer in a single sheet. Sealed at the joints with heat, adhesive or mechanical means, it can be adhered, mechanically fixed and/or ballasted into flat, pitched or green roof systems.
Single ply roofs are lightweight, flexible, cost effective, swift to install and safe. Which makes them increasingly popular for new builds as well as refurbishment projects.
