Building a new roof or replacing an existing one can be one of the biggest investments you ever make when it comes to your home. The character, design and the type of roofing materials used on the roof can change the look of you house completely. When considering a new roof it is important, therefore, to consider a range of factors before starting on the project. Obviously your budget will play a big role in whatever you decide, as will the type of dwelling, the materials available and any local or national building regulations.
A roof comes in two basic designs – flat or pitched. Flat roofs have no slope, and are available in a range of different forms. They can be a great, cost-effective choice for a more contemporary home. They can be made out of a range of inexpensive material such as rubber, felt, fibreglass or synthetic polymer. Pitched roofs come in a wider range of types, and include gable, cross gable and hipped designs. These roofs provide exceptional drainage and stability, and are better suited to older style homes. Pitched roofs can be built with clay or concrete tiles or overlapping slates.
Flat and pitched roofs can both be built from different materials and you should consider each roof’s aesthetic appearance before making a decision.
