The Structure of Flat Roofs

Our roofing installations don’t all have the same structure. As such, the way we approach yours will depend on what type of roof you require.

While there are some variations to warm roofs – referred to as hybrid roofs – these two solutions make up most of our flat roofing structures in Coventry, Loughborough and the surrounding areas.

Generally speaking, the structures supporting flat roofs are the same. They consist of a timber frame with joists spanning the shorter length of the roof. These are the load-bearing members of your structure.

Atop this, you find the timber decking. The joists beneath support the weight of the deck. The decking itself is what gives flat roofing its name.

The Importance of a Fall

While the flat roofs you see in and around Coventry, Leicester and Loughborough may appear flat, they actually have an imperceptible slope, or fall. In fact, the fall is a vital aspect when it comes to the longevity of your flat roofing installation.

In short, the fall allows rainwater to drain from your roof as quickly as possible. Failure to integrate a fall at the required depth increases the risk of standing water on your roofing surface. Pooling water may seem harmless, but it is one of the leading causes of water leaks and structural issues.

Naturally, every new installation has its own qualities. However, for the smooth roofs we install, our team integrates a minimum fall of 1:80, in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Integrating the perfect fall into flat roofs is one of the most important and intricate stages of construction. As such, you must leave it in the hands of a proven flat roofing specialist.
