There is no shortage of roofing solutions that residential and commercial properties can utilize. One of the most popular roofing methods right now is flat roofing. Its multi-functionality makes it very versatile. Our team of roofing specialists at Aberdeen Roofers have the expertise to build, re-roof and maintain your flat roofing.
Flat Roofing Benefits
Flat roofs are particularly well known for their compact design and ability to save space making them ideal for smaller structures such as extensions, porches, and garages. A structurally simple roof, that is usually a horizontal base fixed to the ceiling joists and made waterproof with a membrane, although named as a flat roof, it will be angled slightly to allow excess water to run off.
Flat roofing can boast of being both economic and efficient making it an effective way to save money and energy. The simple structure means it costs significantly less in labor and materials, especially when compared to a traditional pitched roof, making the initial investment of a new roof more affordable.
As we’ve become accustomed to in Aberdeen, the traditional flat roof is sealed with felt, making it weatherproof, then covered in stone chippings to act as a barrier against UV lighting. The tendency for flat felt to blister in hot weather made for a more technologically advanced material to be adopted (singly-ply PVC membrane) with durability that allows the manufacturers the possibility of offering lifetime guarantees.

With flat roofing, the additional space saved it not just to the dead space above the property, which might be important to building regulations, but you have the opportunity of extending the interior living space as well. Depending on your budget and needs. Compared to pitched roofs, you have the option of having living space where the usual attic space would be, a much more effective way to utilize the space.
When it comes to maintaining a flat roof, just the sheer practicality of the structure makes it so much more accessible that it makes general maintenance easier and cheaper. Removing debris and repairing minor issues can be done for little or cost, and with the lifetime guarantees now. There isn’t the previous concern of a 20 year lifetime meaning it would need replacing every 20 years.
