Flat roofing is becoming more and more desirable, particularly for commercial properties and single storey extensions. Flat roofs are typically at their best on smaller buildings, due to their compact nature. This makes them ideal for extensions and garages, but doesn’t render them unsuitable for large properties.
When people think of building a new roof, one of the first things that comes to mind is the sheer amount of work required. Flat roofing has a lot to offer in this regard, being quicker and easier to install than pitched roofing. For business in particular, the quick turnaround time on a flat roof installation can be very appealing due to vastly reduced downtime. Combine this with much cheaper design and installation costs compared to pitched roofs, and you can quickly save a bundle of time by opting for a flat roof.
The environment is also a key concern for many these days, and flat roofs can be the ideal canvas for an eco-friendly green roof. This will depend on the construction of the roof and your property as a whole, but if you are able to maintain a green roof on your property, the benefits they provide for drainage and general efficiency can be tremendous for roofs of any size.
Most disadvantages of flat roofing are related to maintenance and up keep. Flat roofs typically require more attention to ensure they are performing to their fullest for as long as possible. For larger and more complex flat roofs properties, this could be a discouraging prospect. We have GRP & Rubber options available.
