Flat Roofing by Cumbria Roofing

flatroofslide

Much like its name suggests, a flat roof appears horizontal in a contrast to the more traditional, and widespread pitched roofs. Nevertheless, flat roofing is also used world-wide with various materials used depending on the location. In warmer climates, where rainfall is lower and freezing is not expected, most flat roofs are built of masonry or concrete. In places where rainfall is greater, such as the UK, flat roofs made from masonry or concrete are not suitable due to freezing and cracking. Rather, in the UK, a covering layer such as tar or felt is applied to make the roof more water tight.

These roofs offer a significant amount of weather protection with the usual reason for leaks being a lack of maintenance. If damage is caused to the roof, then it can often go unnoticed for a long period of time while the water penetrates and soaks the structure below the surface. This can lead to serious damage and rot that can be hazardous to your health.
