Flat Roofing – There was a time when flat roofing was considered cheap and low quality. However, with the developments in glass reinforced plastic technology, flat roofs are now a viable and strong solution to tile sloped roofing or slate sloped roofing. Flat roofing provides a range of benefits over peaked roofing solutions. The main advantage of a flat roof being that it frees up the internal space, so you can use the full height of the room below, allowing more flexibility for the internal architecture and design of your property.
Flat roofs are hugely popular for modern properties and allow you to create a stunning internal living space that might be more difficult to achieve with a conventional pitched roof design.
Flat roofs, though a popular choice, does not necessarily mean a cheap alternative to pitched roofs. However, often with less materials and construction costs, they can be cost effective and efficient to install. Typically, a GRP flat roof consists of:
- Waterproof membrane
- Thermal insulation layer
- Roof deck base for the waterproof membrane
- Vapour control layer to help reduce condensation
- Load-bearing joist supports
- Plasterboard ceiling
Made from reinforced fibreglass polyester, GRP flat roof has a cold-lay membrane so there is no need for on-site torching.
Durable and lightweight, it will provide you with a watertight and maintenance free covering for many years. GRP flat roof is a robust, non-corrosive flat roofing solution with an optimum finish. It will not sag and will never rot. It is ideal for roof terraces and flexible enough to be shaped around roof lights. Contact Roofing Solutions UK for a free quote for your Flat Roofing.
