Frequently Asked Questions
How do you identify a flat roof?
There are several ways to tell if it is flat. One is to look at the pitch or slope. A roof with a very low pitch is probably flat. The eaves are another good indicator. Generally, flat roofs have very little or no overhang, while pitched roofs will have more prominent eaves. Lastly, flat roofs tend to be simpler in design than pitched roofs. Their contours tend to be straight and geometrical with few decorative features. A professional can tell you whether a roof is pitched or flat.
What are the benefits of having a flat roof?
Flat roofs are popular among commercial and residential buildings for several reasons:
- Flat roofs are easier to build and less expensive than pitched roofs.
- They offer more usable space than pitched roofs; this is especially beneficial for commercial buildings that need extra storage space or an outdoor area for employees.
- Flat roofs are easier to maintain than pitched roofs; they can be cleaned regularly with a power washer.
- They require less maintenance over time.
- Since weight is evenly distributed across a flat roof’s surface, flat roofs can handle heavy loads better than pitched roofs.
Therefore, flat roofs make excellent choices for both commercial and residential buildings.
What is the lifespan of a flat roof?
Material choice and maintenance determine the lifespan of a flat roof. Torch applied felt roofs were most common and still are popular. The emergence of Single ply membranes and liquid solutions have given greater life spans. With regular inspections and repairs, all flat roofs can last for many years.
How often does a flat roof need to be inspected?
A flat roof is a popular choice for commercial buildings, and for good reason. They are less expensive to install than pitched roofs, and they offer more usable space. The maintenance of flat roofs is more involved than for other types. One of the most important tasks is regular inspection. We would recommend all Flat roofs are inspected at least once a year. By making sure to keep up with regular inspections, you can help to extend the life of your flat roof.
What is the cost of repairing or replacing a flat roof?
The cost of replacing or repairing a flat roof will depend on many factors, including the size of the roof, the type of materials used, and the specifications. In the UK, the average cost of a new flat roof is £3,000-£5,000. The real cost will vary depending on the specific project. For example, a small repair job may only cost a few hundred pounds, while a complete replacement could cost upwards of £10,000. A detailed estimate can be obtained by consulting with a qualified roofing contractor who can assess the scope of the work and provide a detailed quote.
How do you install a flat roof?
At Aspect we would first carry out a detailed survey to ensure the correct product and specification is installed. This could include:
New Plywood deck
The roof surface needs to be prepared by removing any existing materials and repairing any damage. The new plywood can then be fixed into position.
Vapour control layer
You need to install a vapour barrier to help prevent moisture from seeping into the roof.
New insulation, tapered insulation to improve roof falls
You’ll need to install a layer of insulation to keep the roof cool in summer and warm in winter. Once the insulation is in place, you can install the roofing membrane. This can be either a single-ply membrane or a built-up roofing system.
Roof coverings i.e single ply, torch on felt ect.
This is the part which keeps the roof watertight, we will ensure the right system is used for your project. This will be discussed during your site survey with our flat roofing specialist.
With careful planning and execution, installing a flat roof can provide many years of service.
