Now might be the time to consider organising a roof conversion before any damage is done. A leaky roof can end up causing thousands of pounds worth of damage, but if you nip things in the bud quickly you can save yourself the hassle later on.

A lot of homes that were built in the 1960s and ‘70s feature flat roofs, simply because they were the cheapest and most popular option at the time. However, they may be starting to fail today, and you might also be unhappy with the way yours looks.


Your Options

If you are faced with the prospect of needing to replace your roof, you will have two options. You can either:

Replace your roof with our Firestone RubberCover EPDM membrane to keep your flat roof style

Choose to convert to a pitched roof

The choice is yours at the end of the day, but there are many benefits to be had by converting your roof. Read on to find out all about them!


The Benefits

By converting your roof, you can expect to see some of the following benefits:

An increase in space – you can choose to use it as storage space or create an additional room with it.

A more aesthetically pleasing roof design – you could even install Velux windows to allow natural light into your new room.

You may also be able to increase the overall value of your home if you choose a pitched roof, which is especially ideal if you are thinking about selling.
