What is Flat Roofing?

In today’s blog, we will discuss flat roofing and why it can be a great addition to any home.

Flat roofs are exceedingly popular with those looking to create a cool, modern home. They provide a sleek, minimalist aesthetic that can really open up a space. This can revolutionise a home and provide it with a timeless look that will be the envy of your neighbours. Additionally, its often less expensive to fit or repair your roof than traditional pitched roofs. Really, it’s a win-win!

Many people may be tempted to build a new flat roof or repair your roof yourself, however we recommend that you call in the professionals. If done incorrectly, you could cause damage to your home as water and moisture could seep into your room. Furthermore, a poor job makes your home look shabby and unsightly. At Albec Roofing LTD, we are highly experienced in dealing with flat roofs and would be more than happy to repair your roof or install a new one.

What Does Flat Roofing Consist Of?

Flat roofing generally consists of a single layer of material that is applied over the top of a roof deck or substrate. The most common type of flat roofing material is asphalt, but other options include tar, gravel, EPDM rubber, and PVC. At Albec Roofing, we specialise in Built-Up Felt, GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) and Rubber Systems. We believe that these are brilliant options for a home as they not only look great, but are durable.

Why Would I Need Flat Roofing?

Flat roofing is a popular choice for both commercial and residential properties. It is often used on structures with a low pitch, such as porches, carports, sunrooms, and additions. While most people think of flat roofs as being inherently problematic, when installed correctly by a professional roofing contractor, they can be just as durable as any other type of roof.

Advantages of Flat Roofing

One of the biggest advantages of flat roofing is that it is much cheaper to install than other types of roofs. This is because there are fewer materials involved and the installation process is simpler.

Flat roofs also tend to be easier to repair than other types of roofs. If you have a leak, you can simply patch the area without having to replace the entire roof.

Flat roofs also offer more usable space than other types of roofs. This is because there is no need for a pitched roof, which leaves more room for things like HVAC units, solar panels, and skylights.
