What is a flat roof?

A flat roof is completely, or almost level. However, whilst they are described as ‘flat’ almost all flat roofs are actually laid to ensure that rainwater can run off to the lower side. The slope should not exceed 10 per cent from the horizontal.

Flat roofs are common in very hot countries and were widely installed in the UK after WW2. Seen as a cheaper alternative to traditional pitched roofs. However, the durability of some flat roofs has been poor, ranging from 6 years to 35 years depending on the quality of the covering and the structure.
