What is a flat roof?

Typically the design of choice for smaller structures, such as garages and extensions, flat roofing consists of a horizontal base which is fixed to the ceiling joists underneath with a waterproof membrane applied on top.

While flat roofs are designed to hold standing water to some degree, a slight pitch of only a few degrees is usually incorporated to enable rainwater to drain away into a hopper.


New bitumen felt roofs can unfortunately still carry a bad reputation from the older and now unused pour and roll systems.

Large strides have been made, and continue to be made in flexibility and durability of a modern hot flame applied torch on roofing felts. Typically applied in a 3 layer system consisting of a vapour control layer, a layer 2mm reinforced felt and a 4mm layer of felt

Fibreglass roofs have suffered from a bad reputation in the past due to ignorance and faulty installation. A common mistake was using standard boat resins that couldn’t expand or contract properly, or laying fibreglass onto chipboard or smooth plywood.

These days’ modern resins and correct installation has helped fibreglass become a real contender for a top flight flat roof. Normally laid in a one, or sometimes a two layer jointless finish with factory made trims and coloured to literally any colour.
