Adding a flat roof extension such as a light weight glass box patio room or a side room between two roofs can really capture a rustic style feel to your home. Flatt roofing makes for a perfect opportunity to create patios and balconies as well as roof top gardens and other such luxury elements.
Should I have a flat roof or a pitched roof?
There are benefits to both types of roofs and depending on your families personal likes or dislikes, as well as needs and wants, you may choose to have a pitched roof or a flat roof or both. A pitched roof allows for extra attic space and gives your home longevity. Flat roof extensions are known for space saving, are efficient and cost effective but are more often used for porches, dorms and patios. However, they are both an energy and money saver. They are less expensive to replace and offer a great deal of unique design for a home.
