There are then two basic fitting methods: the roll baton or standing seam methods. When using the roll baton method, batons are securely fixed to the deck, forming the bays which are a characteristic feature of these roofs. The lead bays are formed to the exact specifications of your roof, and fixed into the prepared bays. Cappings and trims are welted on to provide a watertight seal at all the joins.
Using the standing seam method, the lead is secured to the roof by the means of stainless steel clips, fitted between the upstands of the bays, which are then welted together.
A standard terrace to the large detached home or semi detached, our motto remains the same.
“Do it right the first time, every time”.

Attic insulation saves heat and money in you home. You can reduce your heating bills by 50% with the average attic insulation paying for itself in less than 3 years. It also prevents pipes from freezing in winter time.
Attic insulation is now a very important aspect of your home. If your attic insulation is not properly installed you could be losing up to 40% of your home’s heat per annum. This means a considerable amount of money being wasted in heating fuel over a year. An inferior attic insulation job means it’s costing you money.
If your home has a pitched roof and some attic space, the most common attic insulation solution is to lay two layers of quilted insulation in a criss-cross manner on the floor of your attic.
We can also provide an alternative method which involves blowing padding / insulating fibre derived from recycled cellulose material and spray it foam like across the floor…
Nearly everyone now use their attics for storage. When insulating material is compacted or squashed or torn it is not as effective. One resolution to this problem is to build a timber sheeted floor over of the new insulation. Munster roofing and guttering can advise you on the best storage solutions for your attic space.

This reliable roof waterproofing system has been in use since 1981, and has an excellent reputation for quality and durability. An estimated 15 million square metres of waterproofing has been installed in Ireland alone.
The membranes of the PARALON 77 series are obtained by calendering a compound based on distilled bitumen modified with polyproplenic resins and elastomeric polymers; the reinforcement, integrally synthetic, is a non-woven polyester obtained from a continuous yarn: this gives to the finished product similar mechanical characteristics in both longitudinal and transverse sense.
The use of the PARALON compound suitably modified gives PARALON 77 membranes excellent weathering resistance in any climatic conditions and in exposed membrane systems.
However, the PARALON 77 membranes may be painted with either the protective coatings of the ELASTOMUL series (available in various colours) or with PARWENOL 4882 ALLUMINIO. The underside is covered with the TERMOTENE® treatment, for a safer and more economic lay-out. The PARALON 77 series is produced in two types:
PARALON 77 AND PARALON 77 4mm, that are 3 and 4 mm thick respectively; they are supplied in rolls, provided with a cardboard core that ensures their indeformability during the transport and the unrolling on site.
