Commercial flat roofs need to be specified thoughtfully in order to guarantee long and reliable performance

The structure of flat roofs
Our commercial flat roofing installations don’t all have the same structure. The structure of any commercial flat roof will depend on the structure and position of the building, and perhaps on the purpose of the building, too.  

Warm Roofs 
These are the simplest and most cost-effective of commercial flat roofs, where the insulation is placed directly on top of the timber structure, whilst the roofing membrane is fitted over the insulation.

Cold Roofs 
These commercial flat roofs are not uncommon in the Loughborough region. The insulation is placed between the rafters, meaning it’s underneath the ply roof covering. This is the standard approach to creating commercial flat roof property extensions.

Whilst there are some variations – hybrid roofs – the above are most typical of the commercial flat roofing solutions we provide to our clients in Loughborough and the surrounding region. 

Generally speaking, the structures supporting flat roofs are all fairly similar. They consist of a timber frame with joists spanning the shorter length of the roof. These are the load-bearing members of your structure. The joists support the timber decking, which forms the flat roof itself.

The Importance of a fall
While the commercial flat roofs you see in and around Loughborough, Leicester and Nottinghamshire may appear totally flat, they actually have a very slight slope, or fall. This is a feature which is vital to the reliability and longevity of any commercial flat roofing. In short, the fall allows rainwater to drain from your roof as quickly as possible. Failure to provide a fall creates the risk of water pooling on the roof’s surface, leading to leaks.

Each new commercial flat roofing installation is specified individually. However, for the smooth roofs we install, our team integrates a minimum fall of 1:80, in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations and taking into consideration the amount of rainfall experienced in Loughborough, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and the Midlands. 

Integrating the correct fall into commercial flat roofs is one of the most important and intricate stages of construction: one of the reasons why you should always leave commercial flat roofing to proven experts. The purpose of commercial flat roofing is to physically protect your business, and it therefore makes perfect sense to get it right first time. At Hart Roofing, we combine outstanding customer care with outstanding quality commercial flat roofing in Loughborough, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and elsewhere in the region.
