The Size of Your Roof
In general, the larger the roof, the more materials are required for its construction and in turn this affects the price.
The Type of Roofing Solution You Require or Want
There are many excellent roofing solutions available on the market, such as Fibreglass, EPDM Rubber Roofing and Liquid Rubber Roofing. Each of these solutions has different qualities and suit specific requirements, however for residential properties in the UK, fiberglass is usually the most popular option.

The Hours Involved
Depending on the job, the amount of hours required to complete the work can vary substantially. This is often dependent on whether the solution can be applied straight away or whether additional work is required to clear the roof of tiling or shingles for example. A reputable supplier will often survey the roof and assess this beforehand.
Skylights are becoming more and more popular, adding even more natural light to your home. Replacing or installing a Skylight of course comes at a cost, so it's worth considering the benefits and your budget when looking for a flat roof installation.
