Nottingham Flat Roofing Systems
Types of flat roof are as follows:
Slate Roof or Tile Roof
Best for roofs in humid environments like rain forests because these materials have natural properties that inhibit mold growth; they’re also more environmentally friendly than other types but are costlier and require a higher level of skill when installing them.
Bitumen Membrane Type Roof
Most common among light industrial buildings such as car repair shops – these offer protection from various weather conditions but don’t have insulation properties.
They are best installed on sloped angles with at least an average slope grade of 15 degrees so water can flow off the roof and away from the building. Bitumen is known for good heat and cold insulation value, good resistance against UV light but only lasts about 15 years because they’re made of asphalt or tar), these are usually inexpensive though you’ll need a professional contractor for installation.
Modified Bitumen Roof
Modified bitumen roof refers to a type of roof which is made from a variety of materials including asphalt, rubber and other polymers. They’re incredibly durable thanks to their flexible nature but can be difficult to repair in the event that they do get damaged. Modified bitumen roofs come in various thicknesses and costs but they usually lasts about 18 years; this type is heavier than other materials so installation has to be done by professionals. The advantages include its ability for easy repairs as well as reduced labor needs during installation process while the disadvantages include high material cost and limited color range though there are some companies who offer warranties on their product should any issues arise.
Other Flat Roof Options
Metal roof is the most popular roofing material today, made of steel with some type of coating (usually aluminum) that protects it from corrosion due to exposure to elements such as water and air pollution. Copper roofs are highly durable, costly to install but worth the expense as these last up to a hundred years or more; they’re installed on average slopes higher than 12 degrees). These provide good insulation value against heat and cold and can stand up well when exposed to salty air from seaside towns.
Built Up Roofing
The roofing which are usually applied on buildings that are built to handle the weight of a flat roof are called built-up roofs with tar and gravel options. The roofing includes a layer of insulation, and the surface is constructed from either asphalt shingles or concrete tiles. They are also called “built up” because they require additional layers for waterproof protection over tar paper and felt top coats after construction. This type of roof can be applied to both new buildings as well as renovations on an existing building material that has been damaged by leaks in the past.
Built up roofing may not always be clear from your initial inspection if it’s installed properly; however, there will usually be some indications such as water stains coming through ceilings inside your home and wetness along walls at ground level outside your house which indicate potential problems with this type of roof configuration.
Wood shingle or shake are more expensive option compared to metal roofs, usually installed on an average slope grade less than 12 degrees since wood can rot faster if there is too much moisture around). These provide good insulation value against heat and cold and are also great for roofs in areas with high levels of precipitation. Composite shingle are low maintenance option that is fireproof, doesn’t require painting or rust proofing though it’s not lasting nearly as long (20 – 30 year life span) compared to other materials like metal.
Thermoplastic olefin roofs can last up to 50 years with proper care; they also come in various colors so it’s possible to customize the look while still having some functionality.)
