Sometimes property owners decide to convert their flat roofs to pitched roof designs. They may do this for one of a number of reasons. Choosing a redesign is often done because:
- The flat roof is prone to leaks, which leads to problems with mould.
- Flat roofs need to be replaced more frequently.
- Flat roof designs require waterproof coatings and sealants.
- The added moisture exposure of a flat roof design leads to more reinstallations.
Do You Want to Change Your Roof’s Design?
Fortunately, property owners do not have to settle for a flat roof if they think that an angled roof would be a better covering. If you wish to convert to a pitched roof design, you can select from one of various bespoke options.
Making a Decision
When making a consideration, you need to review the following:
- Will the upgrade be affected by your current architecture?
- Make sure that the new roof’s structural integrity is backed by Goole roofers.
- You may have to spend more for a complicated roofing system. Whilst you can convert a flat roof design to one that is pitched by adding a trussed roof with two pitched planes, that is not the only option. For example, you can include more angles, gables, or valleys if you choose.
- Will you need to make adjustments to the vents, pipes, or chimney?
Contact a Specialist
As you can see, changing your roof’s design must be carefully reviewed. However, if you feel that you will spend less after the improvement, it may be worth it to you. Contact a roofing specialist that makes these kinds of conversions to obtain more insight about how a conversion can work for you.
