Flat Roofing for Your Home Extension
Flat roofing for your home extension
Many homeowners are now choosing to extend their property rather than moving home. Adding an extension with a flat roof is cheaper and less stressful than having to sell your home and then buy a new property.
Home extensions that feature a flat roof are growing in popularity and for very good reasons.
Flat roofing for extensions
The flat roof is a great alternative to a pitched roof, with many homeowners now choosing to have one for both practical and aesthetic reasons. The word ‘flat’ is slightly misleading as there is a slight pitch to deal with any rainwater. They have also come a long way since the 1970s with many roofing materials now available such as rubber and PVC, that can last for decades with no maintenance.
The benefits of a flat roof extension
A flat roof is the number one choice for homeowners when they choose to extend their property. This is for many good reasons.
The cost effective option
They are much cheaper than other roofing options, including a pitched roof, as fewer materials are needed. So, if you are on a tight budget it’s the best option for you.
Stylish and modern
Flat roofs are now incredibly stylish and flexible in both their shape and use of materials and colour options. Many architects are now incorporating a flat roof design in their initial extension plans.
More internal space
A flat roof gives you great scope for using the internal space as there is no need for supporting beams. This allows you extra space and the ability to use all available space.
