Typical flat roof types

Concrete roof deck:

Concrete roof decks can handle a large degree of water content. These roofs can soak up a wide range of moisture and work well at repelling leaks. Concrete is installed with a membrane coating that can protect all electrical circuits as well as properly protect a roofing system. These types of concrete roof decks remain an excellent solution for a wide range of properties and one of the best products for a long life span. If you are seeking one of the most popular products for new roofing systems, concrete could be the best option for your needs.

Steel Roof Deck:

A steel roof deck is a steel structure that sits throughout the roofing membrane. The foil faced slab insulation conducts sit between the electrical as well as the foundation of the deck system. Faults throughout the membrane can be detected through an electrical circuit. If the membrane is penetrated and leaks are discovered, alarms will sound and this can indicate that it is a wise time to consider replacement on the membrane or repairs on the steel roofing system. Steel roof decks are an excellent choice for industrial buildings as well as for a ride range of building operations.

Timber Roof Deck:

Timber structures are nonconductive but the insulating properties of these rooms can lead to a lowered utility bill. Timber structures within rooms work with a foil faced insulation as well as a water detection system that is tracked through the earth and a series of connected wires. Timer deck roofs have foil faced insulation and there’s also bonding through an electrical leak detection process. This can make sure that the roof always has a line of defence against moisture and an instant alarm should there be a need for repairs.

If you’re interested in any of these top roof decks, you should consider what option best suits your price and your roofing structure.

Flat Roof in Reading

We located Leigh through Check-a-Trade website. From the moment we met, Leigh's professionalism, knowledge and courtesy was excellent! The work was done within the time frame. Leigh was onsite and overseen all the work step by step. Leigh and his workmen arrived were postural and worked very hard throughout the whole day. Leigh's workers were very polite while on site. Premises were left clean and the warranty arrived as promised. We have already recommended Leigh's work to several friends and even to Reading Borough Council who were impressed with the material quality and high standard finish Leigh did on the flat roof.

Thanks again Leigh for everything.

Rooftek re-roofed our flat garage roof with a membrane material. Leigh and his team completed the work very quickly after my enquiry as to when the work could be done, fitting it around their other jobs. This was great as I wanted the work done. They were very efficient and courteous, and the work was completed to a good standard. Would recommend.
