Flat Roofing Materials


Changes in technology applied to flat roofing materials means that they are as good, if not better than other roofing structures. A flat roof can give a home a sleek, modern profile.  If you are choosing a flat roof then it is worth knowing:


  • Most “flat” roofs will still require a slight pitch as they still collect more rain, snow and debris than traditional roofs.
  • Winter care for your flat roof is all about prevention. This is best to take place in autumn.
  • Flat roofs are known for having a higher level of drainage issues. Unlike sloped roofs, they can collect water and debris. This can clog roof drains. It is worth investing the time to clean your flat roof a few times a year.




  • Flat roofs tend to be easier to build.
  • Flat roofs tend to be more cost effective to build.
  • Flat roofs can look more appealing to the building structure.
  • Flat roofs are quicker to install meaning less time for a contractor to be at your home or premises.
  • Upto 35 years of guarantee available across all products.


Imperial Roofing would advise you to consult with a roofing contractor to determine which flat roofing option is best for your individual needs. If you require support to do this, then please do call our office and we would be happy to pass you the details of local reputable roofing contractors for you to contact directly.
