Metrotile Lightweight Roofing Bond Tile on Flat to Pitch Roof Conversion Plymouth 1

A flat roof might seem like the best option all round when it comes to homes, offices, or any other structures but while a flat roof might be popular, it does come with a number of potential problems. Flat roofs are very popular in places that don’t have a lot of rain and as strange as it may seem, your local climate isn’t something many people take into account when choosing a roof.

Many people incorrectly believe that roofs follow the same principles when it comes to their shape and design. But a flat roof is very different from a pitched roof and not just because of the shape, and while a flat roof, in general, is cheaper paying the extra costs for a pitched roof can be a lot better in the long term.

So, if you have a flat roof currently then you might want to consider converting it to a pitched one. Under Metrotile’s amazing roof conversion service, the majority of flat roofs can be quickly and efficiently converted to a high-quality pitched roof. Let’s take a look at the benefits of converting a flat roof in more detail.

The benefits of converting your roof

There’s a number of benefits to converting your existing flat roof to a pitched one, and at Metrotile we have a range of options for you to choose from. We can convert your roof to a pitched one as low as 10 degrees and have carried out roof conversions on properties of all kinds. There are a large number of benefits and advantages to converting your roof from more modern styling to better weatherproofing.

A stronger, sturdier roof

With a pitched roof, water won’t pool which means there will be less chance of leaks developing, flat roofs do drain but they aren’t anywhere near the effectiveness of a pitched roof. So, if you have experienced a lot of leaks or drainage issues then converting your roof could solve the problem.

Pitched roofs last longer

Pitched roofs are much stronger and longer lasting options, they are more expensive than flat roofs but the extra cost is usually worth it in the end. At Metrotile we even offer an amazing 40-year weatherproof guarantee as well.

You have more options

With a pitched roof, you have plenty more options when it comes to what your roof actually looks like, flat roofs are much more limited in their options. They commonly use rubber roofing and that comes with a limited lifespan, with a pitched roof you get plenty more options and can create a more stylish, eye-catching roof.

Pitched roofs can fit any building

One misconception about pitched roofs is that they aren’t suitable for all kinds of building, flat roofs are popular for larger structures like blocks of flats or offices but a pitched roof will be suitable for these buildings as well. So, before you decide on a flat roof why not consider a pitched one instead? The extra cost might sting a little but in the end, it will guarantee better long-term results.
