When should I choose a flat roof?
Flat roofs are an ideal choice for small structures such as extensions, shed roof repairs, garages, flat roof conservatories or out buildings. Flat roof construction is simple, quick and often cheaper to install than a more traditional pitched roofs and provides instant protection against water ingress, moisture and insects. However, as the materials used become more sophisticated, flat roofs can also be found in more industrial, large scale applications.

Typical flat roofing applications
Here are some great options for you to consider when selecting the right flat roof for you:
EPDM or rubber roofing
EPDM, also known as a rubber flat roof, is a single ply membrane that is fitted to a low slope or flat roof. It’s the perfect choice for roofing because it’s completely weather resistant, durable and can be applied by just about anyone. It’s supplied in a variety of widths that are cut to size, making an EPDM flat roof a cost effective and simple solution for any application. RoofStores has a complete range of EPDM roofing materials from a selection of adhesives, trims and accessories.
A Torchon roof s the most commonly known flat roofing system and is applied by covering the roofing surface with sheets of torchon underlay, or a layer of bitumen which is then heated with a propane torch to seal the area. The main benefit of using torchon roofing felt is flexibility because the material expands and contracts with the heat so is less prone to cracking and works well in any climate. Roof stores has a created a range from leading brand such as IKO, SIGnature, FIX:R and Copernit.
GRP flat roof
Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) is comprised of polyester resin and chopped strand mat glass fibres, which are mixed together to form a laminate. GRP roofing is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of flat roofing because it’s easy to apply, is weather resistant and is incredibly strong, but it’s also lightweight and provides a maintenance-free roof for several years. Roofstores work with brands such as Fix-R, Klober and Scott Bader to bring you a comprehensive range of waterproofing systems and GRP accessories to ensure your project is complete and hassle-free.
