Drain & Vent Flashings
When it comes to constructing a flat roof, it’s important to pay particular attention to design elements which provide both adequate drainage and ventilation. Ashbrook Roofing is a drain & vent flashing supplier, in addition to providing an outstanding selection of roofing materials.
Unlike pitched designs, flat roofs don’t have natural drainage. Drain and vent flashings work by providing an outlet for excess water, to prevent it from pooling on the surface of the roof.
Other options for reducing weather damage to flat roofs include gritting solutions, which protect the surface of a felt or asphalt roofing surface from the weather. Alternatively, metal roofs can be coated with aluminium-based reflective solar paints, which reduce the damaging effects of UV rays.
