In Gateacre, roofers are not only called on to do repairs to roofs that are damaged, leaking or suffering from wear and tear, but we are also contacted by customers who have questions such as what the advantages and disadvantages of converting a flat roof to a pitched one are. This type of conversion is one of the services we provide and it can be the best option for those who are tired of dealing with the issues that often go with a flat roof such as puddling and leaks and seemingly endless maintenance. However, pitched roofs are not without drawbacks. Firstly, one should keep in mind that the waterproof membranes that are now available for flat roofs are just as watertight as a well constructed pitched roof. An additional advantage of using a high quality and correctly installed membrane on a flat roof is that it is a great deal less costly than a roof conversion. A pitched roof might improve the look of a property but it does not often increase the value enough to cover the conversion costs. On the other hand, a pitched roof can bear weight – such as snow – much better than a flat roof. Further advantages of a pitched roof are that it makes insulation easier and more economical and it provides storage space. The homeowner really has to decide what factor or factors are most important to him or her when making this choice.
