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.
