EPDM

We are your local certified installers of EPDM rubber roofing. This innovative product can be used on many surfaces and can be laid without heat.

We are your local certified installers of EPDM rubber roofing. This innovative product can be used on many surfaces and can be laid without heat. The product also comes with a 20-year guarantee, so what’s not to like?

A recent study of aged EPDM showed that after 26 years of real world exposure, EPDM still retained excellent tensile strength, tear resistance and weathering resistance. EPDM just doesn’t get brittle with age!

To maximise the design and aesthetic potential of your property, the EPDM roofing system can be used on a range of surfaces for warm and cold roof design, refurbishment or new build construction. It is also the perfect roofing membrane for use with green roofs, balconies, roof patios and terraces.

EPDM is a durable solution for all residential flat roofs, such as extensions, dormers, garages, mansard roofs, porches, balconies, terraces and gutters. The system is fully adhered to the deck or insulation and spliced using the latest seam technology. This ensures the roof gains maximum strength and long term life expectancy.

UPVC & Cladding

Expert replacement is essential if your home is to be fully protected against water damage. We specialise in fascia and soffit replacement and only use the highest quality materials and installation techniques.

UPVC Fascia’s Soffits and Guttering


Expert replacement & repair is essential if your home is to be fully protected against water damage. We specialise in fascia and soffit replacement and only use the highest quality materials and installation techniques.

Our high-performance UPVC fascias and soffits will give your home long lasting maintenance-free protection from the elements.

Bad weather is a roof’s biggest enemy and the effect is easily noticeable by the condition of the guttering, fascias and soffits.

The Benefits of UPVC

When it comes to choosing the right materials for your gutters, fascias and soffits, uPVC can be a better alternative to metals and wood for a number of reasons:

Water penetrates more easily into wood causing split, cracked paint, wood rot and structural damage. Wood also provides limited protection from the elements.
UPVC is very strong. It can withstand the weight of snow and ice better than other materials.
UPVC does not need painting and comes in a variety of colours. It is durable, waterproof and rot proof.

Cladding:

Benefits of UPVC Cladding

Using wood as a cladding material is no longer practical. Timber cladding tends to rot and is expensive and time-consuming to maintain.

When we consider the protection uPVC provides, a greater understanding for the value of this building material is gained.

uPVC is exceptionally durable and attractive, while resistant to even the worst weather, insects, vermin. It will never rot and you will never need to paint it. Also, uPVC can be recycled up to 10 times, which reduces its carbon imprint.

Low maintenance – does not discolour, retains its appearance & is weather resistant.
Low cost – when compared to actual timber such as Cedar
Long Life expectancy – uPVC cladding has a long-life expectancy
Variety of colours and styles

D Harrison Home Improvements have been providing the Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch & other Dorset and Hampshire areas with reliable, professional and expert home repairs for the last 15 years.

We specialise in installing and maintaining UPVC fascia boards, soffits, guttering & cladding.

Resin Driveways

D Harrison Home Improvements have been servicing driveways using resin bound surfacing for a number of years. We can guarantee you a long-lasting driveway, footpath or access road.

How Does it work?

Small aggregate or gravel is coated in resin in a specialist mixer. It’s spread by hand to give a smooth, elegant and easy to clean surface.

Natural gravels are available in different sizes- from 6mm to 20mm. For a different effect, artificially colored rounded glass chips can be used to provide a bright surface for play areas.

Not sure what kind of surface to opt for?

Get in touch with D Harrison Home Improvements now and speak to one of our specialists about your forecourt or driveway resurfacing requirements.

What are the benefits?

For schools and public buildings – low-maintenance, durable and frost resistant. Resin surfacing is solvent and odor free.

• Home driveways and footpaths – free-draining and compliant with the latest planning laws. 

Flat roofs, balconies and patios – standard and UV resistant versions are available.

• Access roads and landscape projects – environmentally friendly resin surfacing. It is a permeable surface making it ideal for landscape projects requiring protection of the land underneath. 

• Tree pits – ideal for areas around trees, which need a free-draining and flexible material to accommodate future tree growth.
