When you're looking to install a flat roof on your property or wish to replace your current system, it’s important to gather as much information as possible. For those who aren't sure about the types of materials available, the advantages of each kind or which one may be suited to your project we’ve put together a guide to flat roofing which should give you the ideal starting point.
The term ' FLAT ROOFING ' describes a roof surface that is as almost completely level. Although the name indicates a horizontal surface, a slight angle must be included to allow for the drainage of rainwater. The preferred design of a flat roof fall is 1:40, although this can vary and be anywhere down to 1:80. This depends on the site upon which the structure has been built.
Once you have decided that a flat roof should be installed, there are several considerations to bear in mind. This will include things such as material performance, the complexity of the structure and the aesthetic appeal. As with any roof installation, the key is to find the right company who can give you the assurances you need that the job will be completed to the required standard and we think that we are the right company to do that. We will be able to advise you on the best type of roof covering. This is based on the usage, local environment and the budget available to you.
Types of ' Flat roofing' :
TORCH ON FELT-
Two or three layers of bitumen sheet are applied by gas torch to form the roof coating. This is a very cost-effective option. However, there are different grades available that provide better quality along at a higher price point. One of its advantages is its malleability and a multi-layering approach that stands up well to foot traffic. A naked flame is used to heat the felt during installation.
PVC SINGLE PLY MEMBRANE-
This is one of many single-ply membrane options, with other variants available including PIB, TPE and TPO. Gas is polymerised to form a vinyl resin which creates a durable composite. This material can be made in numerous different colours. They generally provide good value for money, although it requires a more specialised fitting process from approved installation companies. This option is ideal for any number of industrial, commercial and domestic roofs.
EPDM RUBBERISED ROOFING-
A common choice for installers, EPDM can be reusable if it has been fixed into place mechanically or loosely laid. The durability of the material is one of its main advantages. It also offers high levels of waterproof protection against UV light. This is easy to install and can be quickly cut to size for tailored dimensions
GRP FIBREGLASS ROOFING -
A paint-on solution such as liquid roofing allows for more flexibility during installation. It also works well on roofs that are not of a standard size or shape. While it may be lightweight, GRP systems remain strong and durable. This offers protection against heavy foot traffic and any natural movement that occurs within the building.
Flat roofs are often used on structures that are not a standard part of the living area. For example, extensions and garages feature flat roofs, as do outdoor living spaces that have been built in the garden.
A flat roof is usually the preferred choice for extensions likely to be positioned nearby to an existing structure. There are also instances where a new flat roof is installed to replace an outdated roof system. This is often the case with corrugated tin roofs which are no longer allowed under current UK building regulations.
