Flat Roofing Dublin
Recently a customer of Irish Roofers asked us the question “how do you install Flat Roofing” so I decided to write a series of articles on roofing from flat roofs to slate and tiled roofs.
First of all for flat roofing we require a good solid base made of timber joists. The size of these joists will depend on the span of the roof.
Next we install 8×4 plywood sheeting which is screwed to the joists, ensuring that there is no give where the plywood sheets meet.
We then torch on two layers of roofing felt using a blow torch, ensuring that it’s set to just the right heat so as not to heat the felt too much.
