  • A flat roof replacement is undoubtedly easier than a pitched roof – relaying the felt or other material is a lot easier on a flat surface than retiling; in that respect, flat roofs are cost effective as there is less to pay for labour. It’s always important to use a reputable roofer as accurate measurements will hugely affect the flow of water on top of the roof, avoiding dreaded pooling. Flat roofs don’t have to strike fear into the hearts of homeowners – it’s just a matter of being attentive and proactive in its upkeep.
