Which one is a better roof, slanting or flat? Note these tips

People generally try to build beautiful roofs without burning a hole in the pocket.

Is it profitable to construct a flat roof or a slating one?

Building a flat roof is more profitable when it comes to keeping a tab on the budget. The construction charges are comparatively less for a flat roof. However, a slanting roof can significantly reduce the temperature inside the house. The cost of construction of a slant roof will be around 30% more than that of a flat roof.

The concrete mixture has to be spread carefully to construct the slant roof perfectly. So, installing GI truss work over a flat roof and then paving it with roofing tiles have become common these days. Besides, the spaces below the truss work could be used as utility / storage areas. These roofs help reduce the heat in the interiors as well.

How expenses for roof concreting can be reduced

The expenses incurred for concreting the roof could be significantly reduced by adopting the filler slab method. The concrete and the iron bars could be saved by adding hurudees blocks or mud tiles in the concrete mixture. However, the work must be entrusted to contractors who have previous knowledge and experience in the filler slab method.
