Perhaps the typical sloped roof is not what you are looking for. The flat roof has been around for millennia. The flat roof is fairly self explanatory. Instead of the sloped roof that is so often seen, the flat roof only has a slight angle to it, an angle of only about ten degrees. So what is the primary benefit to a flat roof? It is comfort above all else. A flat roof allows you to do something something that no sloped roof could ever do. It lets you turn your roof into a living space. We at Roofers Richmond Hill can show you the many benefits and discuss the few drawbacks to the flat roof.
The flat roof can be coated with many different roofing materials that can add to the beauty and comfort of your roof, all though it is always a waterproofing material. The most common type of sealing is the tar and asphalt, but the possibilities are endless. Flat roofs in the times of the vikings were often used with grass and turf. Not only does this add unbelievable cost benefits to your cooling bill, it also gives you the possibility of your own private paradise.
In the sixties, people began building patio decks on their flat roof. Picnics, hot tubs, and bar-b-ques right there on top of your own home. How would you like to be the envy of your neighborhood? Another possibility to consider in this day and age is a patio garden. Groceries have become more and more expensive, making an outdoor garden even more attractive. Perhaps you like the idea of adding a little self reliance to your life. Either way, having your garden on you roof top adds an extra layer of protection to your garden that isn’t found in the back yard.
