Choosing the right flat roofing products

Your roof is an integral part of any building project. Choosing the right roof for your business is imperative. And when it comes to commercial properties – with their associated tight deadlines and budgets – this is particularly true. So which roofing systems is most suitable for your commercial property?

Flat roofs are a predominant design feature amongst public and commercial buildings such as office blocks, warehouses, factories, schools and leisure centres. But have you ever wondered why so many business premises have flat roofs?

It’s simple – they are more cost-effective and efficient in a commercial application.

Flat roofs maximise internal space and energy efficiency, which is imperative if they operate 24/7. They reduce ‘dead space’ – a common feature of pitched roofs. Flat roofs are more accessible, meaning they are easier to inspect and clean.

Plus the cost of constructing a flat roof is significantly lower than a traditional sloping roof. This means a reduction in the cost of initial construction. 

What about flat roofing materials?

Traditionally, flat roofs were constructed using felt. However, felt can prematurely fail, which leads to numerous problems. This has led to many commercial projects opting for a stronger, more reliable product with a much longer lifespan.

Here at High-Tech Membrane Roofing, we opt for our preferred Single-Ply Membranes. Specifically engineered to withstand anything the British weather has to throw at it, our flat roofing systems offer the ultimate in flat roof protection.

Initially designed for commercial applications, our flat roofing membranes form a dimensionally stable, 100% waterproof covering. They are unaffected by expansion, contraction, UV rays and airborne chemicals such as moss and algae, which can otherwise compromise the integrity of your flat roof.
