CPD seminar – Good Flat Roofing: Guidance for Roofing Refurbishment – one hour
With budgets under increasing pressure, roof maintenance and repairs are commonly addressed reactively as issues occur. To minimise the risk of costly and potentially disruptive issues occurring, a roof should be viewed as an asset and managed in the same way as any other. In its most basic sense asset management is the process of introducing, operating, maintaining and then upgrading an asset. This can only be carried out effectively if the process is carefully planned and the status of each roof area is understood and monitored.

Easily accessible data is a crucial element of managing any estate. Without good data any long term strategic approach is unattainable and the management of the estate budget is rendered a purely reactive one.

This CPD seminar gives a detailed understanding on the approach to flat roof refurbishment and what needs to be addressed prior to finalised specification.

It will take the viewer through the challenges encountered on flat roofing projects and covers roof data collection, types of flat roofs, designs considerations and site expectations. Suitable for those interested in gaining full comprehension on refurbishment of a flat roof estate, as an ‘out-of-site’ asset.


  • Flat roof types and their construction
  • Green roofing
  • Design and safety considerations
  • Insulation and Part L Regulations
  • Site controls
  • Guarantee and technical expectations

Both seminars are delivered by Langley’s expert team online and offer complete flexibility to choose the date and time. In addition, there is the opportunity, at the end of each seminar, to have a live Q&A session.
