An almost level roof in contrast to the many types of sloped roofs is the definition of a flat roof in Wigan. The slope of a roof or pitch is approximately up to 10 degrees in a flat roof. This is the most ancient form of roof and was used in mostly arid climates allowing the roof space to be used as a living area. In wetter climates the flat roof is usually covered by a waterproof membrane which protects the building from leaks. The rainwater flows from the roof into gutter system which leads the water away from the walls of the building to prevent damp. The roof is usually built from timber with a plywood sheet covering the timbers.
This is the cheapest and easiest form of roof but needs to be built and sealed correctly. In Wigan, flat roof builders need to make sure that the roof is sealed in the corners and against any walls as this is where they tend to leak.
