Pitched Roofs

Pitched roofing is a more traditional style and is what most people think of when picturing a roof. Pitched roofs have multiple sides which slope downwards and meet at the top, forming a peak. The most popular pitched roofing materials are slate and clay tiles.

The roofing contractors at E P Mills Roofing can build new pitched roofs for customers in the Market Harborough area and carry out all kinds of repairs. Where required, we also offer a reroofing service for slate and tile roofs.

Key characteristics of pitched roofs include:

  • Classic Kerb Appeal

  • Longer Lifespan

  • Low Maintenance

  • Practical Attic Space

  • Higher Installation Costs

  • More Traditional Appearance

Flat Roofs

As the name suggests, flat roofs are horizontal roofs, resulting in flat-topped buildings and structures. These roofs have a slight slope, which allows rainwater to drain into the gutter. Flat roofing comes in a range of materials, including felt, rubber and fibreglass. It is a very popular option for commercial roofing and industrial roofing, and in recent years has become common for domestic builds as well.

Whatever the project, E P Mills Roofing Ltd can install a high-quality flat roof to your specifications. We also offer repair and maintenance services and roof supplies in Market Harborough to keep flat roofing in top condition.

Key characteristics of flat roofs include:

The Choice is Yours

Ultimately, the type of roof you go for is up to personal preference. Although there may be certain regulations or restrictions affecting your build, most projects have the freedom to choose a flat or pitched roof, even if you are reroofing an existing building.
