Costs associated with flat
roofing are historically considered to be
less costly than a more permanent pitched
roof option. Over recent years this perceived
differential has become much less; partly
through the increased cost of the required
specification of a flat roof and partly
through the innovative and cost effective
methods of creating a pitched roof.
Add to this the increased
on going cost of the repair and maintenance
of a flat roof continually open to the elements
and increased risk of failure. It becomes
apparent as shown by the table of the life
cycle costs above, that the best option
from the outset and through the life of
the building will always be a pitched roof

offer guidance and advice on achieving the
most cost effective solution with the support
of a team of dedicated technical staff.
This support is offered from advice at feasibility
