More and more builders and roofers are now offering flat roofing services, but are they ever going to be as good as using somebody knowledgeable and experienced. The answer is, quite possibly not. You can’t put a price on experience, and the more experienced a flat roof specialist is, the better equipped they will be to install your roof.
Look for people with many years of experience behind them, who don’t use subcontractors. You want to make sure you are talking to the person who will be installing the roof yourself, so you can asses their skills and how much they seem to know about the subject.
Flat roofs may be popular, but they are notoriously difficult to install correctly. Rubber and EPDM roofing, and fibreglass, are all good materials, but not if they aren’t installed well. You can get issues with roofs leaking very easily, as water can begin to pool. Look at previous work a roofer has completed to asses their experience.
