The Structure of Flat Roofs

Roofing installations won’t all have the same structure. The way we approach yours will depend on what type of roof you require. With flat roofs, there are two different types to consider. We will always advise you fairly on what we think will be best for you and, of course, for your property.

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

On most installations, the structures supporting flat roofs are the same. They consist of a timber frame with joists that span the shorter length of the roof. These are the load-bearing members of the structure. On top of this, you usually find a timber deck. Joists support the weight of this deck.

The deck is what gives flat roofing its name.

The Importance of the Fall

While some roofs that you see in Coventry, Nuneaton and the Midlands may appear flat, they have an imperceptible slope (or fall). Indeed, the fall is a vital element when it comes to the longevity of any flat roofing installation. In short, the fall allows rainwater to drain from your roof as quickly as possible. Failure to add a fall at the required depth increases the risk of standing water on the roofing surface.

Pooling water may seem harmless, but it is one of the most prominent causes of water leaks and structural issues.

Naturally, every installation has its own qualities. However, on smooth roofs, our team integrates a minimum fall of 1:80 in line with current manufacturer recommendations. Integrating falls into flat roofs at the correct specification is one of the most important and most intricate stages of construction.
