It may require installing a new type of flat roof, such as felt roofing , rubber roof, or ,single ply membrane all of which we specialise in.
When laying bitumen felt we use a built up 3 layer system which is torched on and comes in various finishes and can include fire rated felts which are specifically designed for domestic use and produce less smoke in the case of a fire.
1st layer is a 3b 1mm randomly tacked down to boards
2nd layer is a 2mm applied with the blow lamp method
3rd layer is a 4mm plain or mineral felt applied with the blow lamp method
Solar reflective paint is applied to plain felt only and come with various guarantees from 12 to 25 years in general.
It is also important that current building regulations are checked for requirements with regards to insulation which at the moment is 120mm of high performance flat roof insulation which is fitted below the new flat roof covering as most flat roofs will require the insulation to be fitted externally to prevent the possibility of condensation forming which can cause damp internally. Also it is important to check that the materials being used comply with fire regulations.
