A flat roof is a roof which is almost level in contrast to the usual type of roofs on a property. The slope of a roof is properly known as its pitch and flat roofs have up to approximately 10°, this is to allow the rainwater to drain away. 


There are three main types of flat roofing system available:

 

Felt (mineral) 

Rubber

Fibreglass


Flat roofs are generally used for sheds, garages, some outbuildings and across bay windows to name a few.

A traditional felt roof is a flat roof surface that is built up using a wooden base and adding 2-3 layers of bitumous felt.These are then bonded together with heated bitumen and are subject to a finishing top coat that provdes both and attractive surface whilst helping  protect the new roof from the elements. This type of roof forms a dense and impermeable barrier to the elements.
