All Types of Flat Roofing
There are three types of Flat Roofing:
A flat roof is a roof which is almost level in contrast to the many types of sloped roofs. The slope of a roof is properly known as its pitch and flat roofs have up to approximately 10°. The reason there is a slight slope is to allow the rain water to drain away.
Flat roofs are mainly used on:
Garages, Sheds, Outbuildings, Small Buildings, Bay Windows, Some Extensions.
The type of flat roofing required is usually depicted by the type of building.
A felt roof is a more traditional type of flat roof, mainly used on garages and dorma roofs.
Before the felting or mineral roofing is installed the surface it is laid on is usually a wooden base. Two to three layers of bitumous felt is laid. These are bonded together with a heated bitumen. Followed by a finishing top coat that is an attractive surface while protecting the roof from the weather. This type of roof forms a dense and impermeable barrier to the elements.
Felt flat roofing will last for quite a few years and can be repaired if necessary.
