Flat roofs are normally covered with felt and bitumen, some also have other materials such as stone chippings or gravel in addition to help shield the felt from the sun. People complain that it fills and blocks guttering and gullies and gives an environment for moss and the like to grow. Over time felt becomes brittle with the sun and cold weather making it harder for the felt to cope with expansion and contraction, that is when the felt cracks and leads to leaks. Flat roofs can leak for a long period without any trace inside the property, this can cause structural damage to roof timbers, an average felt roof has a life span of 12 to15 years, this gives traditional flat roofing a short and unpredictable lifespan, leading to frequent repairs and or total replacement. We only supply materials that meet the relevant British Standards.
