Roof Construction Dorchester
Both Pitched and flat roofs have their own strengths and weaknesses:
The main weakness of a pitched roof is tile slip after heavy winds, ridge tiles can also become loose and need resetting in mortar while Bitumen felted flat roofs oxidise and crack with the extremes of temperature and eventually small leaks develop
