The roof structure is an integral part of the design of your Witney home, with the aesthetic look of your roof dependent on the type and style of the property, your budget and relevant planning and building regulations. On this page, we look at the advantages of flat roofing in comparison to pitched roofs, and at how felt roofing can be a cost-effective and durable option.


Pitched Roofs


The pitched roof is constructed of a minimum of two high-gradient slopes that meet at a point. Known for their long lifespan, their construction is designed to provide usable loft space for your Witney property, maximising the space and flexibility for property design that flat roofing can rarely match. If you’re a pitched roof owner that has stumbled across this page, Abingdon Felt Roofing are able to install a skylight into your pitched roof that can help beautify a loft conversion.


One down side of a pitched roof, is that it can cost a hefty amount. The effort that goes into designing and building them means they’re often significantly pricier than flat roofing. Installing a pitched roof may result in issues with the depths of your Witney property’s footings, as it places a greater burden on the building’s foundations. This means that it may not always be possible to replace flat roofing with a pitched roof, should you wish to do so.


Flat Roofing and Felt Roofing


Flat roofing and felt roofing are great for small structures, such as extensions, dormers and garages, as they’re compact and can save space. A flat roof is essentially a horizontal base fixed to the building’s ceiling joists, and covered with either a GRP fibreglass flat roofing topcoat, or a multi-layered bituminous felt roofing membrane.


Flat roofing is a bit of a misnomer; in order to ensure that rainwater can drain away, flat roofs have a subtle incline (just a few degrees). Our felt roof repairs service can also add weatherproofing to your felt roofing, so that your Witney property is protected even further.


Flat roofing is both economic and efficient, which can save a Witney homeowner money on their energy bills. Its construction involves considerably less labour and materials than its pitched roofing counterpart, and full installation or replacement can often take just a day. Abingdon Felt Roofing offer generous guarantees on our services, and can conduct felt roof repairs, if required, at very competitive prices.
