Flat roofs have slopes less than 15 degrees, and ideally they shouldn’t be absolutely flat. In order to prevent water pooling flat roofs should have a slope of at least 1 in 80 so that the rain is able to run off the edge.

There are a variety of different kinds of flat roofing systems commonly used in the U.K., and whilst modern flat roofing systems can be trouble free for in excess of 30 years, many older flat roofs constructions develop problems much faster and subsequently start to leak which can lead to serious problems such as rotting timber, mould and extensive damage to brickwork and plaster.
Torch on felt roofing
This roof system usually has three layers, vapour control layer, 2 mm reinforced felt layer, and a 4 mm cap felt layer which comes in two finishes; either a mineral flack finish, or plain bitumen ready to accept solar reflective paint. All of the felt layers are welded together using a large blowtorch. This type of roof would typically be guaranteed for 10 to 20 years and is cheapest option. These roofs can often be repaired and patched relatively straightforward.
EPDM rubber roof system
A major advantage of this roofing system is that it can usually be installed in one simple layer without the need for any joins and it is attached to the deck using an adhesive. EPDM is light weight as well as very tough, and if treated well can last anywhere from around 25 to 50 years. Although more expensive than torch on felt roofing, it is still a highly affordable solution.
