Flat roofs were uncommon in the UK until after the Second World War. As a mass rebuild of housing got underway, it was discovered to be a cheaper alternative to the traditional pitched roof style. Warmer climates, especially in Mediterranean countries, have long since adopted flat roofs as they ensure that the temperature inside remains stable and less likely to suffer from intense heat spikes.
In most cases, flat roofs are found on outdoor living or storage spaces, house extensions and industrial buildings. There are still some residential properties that require flat roofs due to planning regulations. It is also a style gaining favour with architects for houses with a more modern, minimal design aesthetic.

A green roof is broadly speaking one with plants growing on its surface that provide space for people and recreation as well as an Oasis for nature and wildlife, whilst at the same time assisting with the control of rainwater. The different types provide for differing levels of planting through to areas that involve extra deck supports and water control. Design could range from a spontaneously occurring moss and lichen, sedum and grasses and wildflowers covered roof to a full-scale roof garden that includes trees, shrubs and hard landscaping features. The vegetation came installed using the individual components or in modular systems that are supplied in 500x500mm modules with a year’s growth of plants already growing. The benefits include provision of wildlife habitat, assistance with the dispersal of rainwater, improved thermal performance of the building, reduction of sound transmission, improved air quality, visually attractive flowers and foliage.
