Flat roofing is a very popular method used on buildings everywhere. Usually, these are made with tar or felt material forming a layer of decking that keeps things watertight. Normally this decking is made up of plywood or chipboard and usually quick thick.
This style of roofing is very cost-effective and efficient because it allows for all of your roof space to be used, on top and underneath. This will mean that fewer materials are needed to be used. Flat roofs in comparison with pitched roofs are much stronger which means you get more options for potentially using the space for other uses such as to perch solar panels or even have a terrace.
Flat roofing can last for many years if maintained properly. It is important to regularly check flat roofing particularly if there has been unusually bad weather such as storms or heavy rains. In particular, you should keep an eye on all roof flashing as the majority of leaks from bad weather and water will occur here.
Drains around the roof also need to be looked after and maintained properly. They need to be clear to work properly with no blockages in the way preventing the flow of rainfall. Blockages will just let water build-up and bear down on the weight of the roof causing greater damage.
