Building a roof terrace on your home or even collectively on top of apartment buildings has become increasingly popular. With the many benefits they offer, it’s no wonder either.
A roof terrace can be built on almost any surface. The option is available for all homes – big or small – just as long as your roof supports the weight. If you don’t have a flat surface, don’t worry. You are able to modify your roof so you can begin building your personalised terrace. The brilliance of a roof terrace is, it doesn’t matter what size your roof is, it’s what you do with the space.
We’ve become a generation all about making the most of the space we have. So, imagine what you could do with your roof? Picture that private escape. Picture what it would be like to be able to cook and relax on your very own private escape.
When you only have a garden to escape to, you have to worry about mowing the lawn and taking care of any trees, bushes or flowers you may have. Sometimes, all you want to do is relax in the increasing British heat. With a roof terrace, all you have to take care of is yourself.
Even as you build a roof terrace perfect for you, there may be a time when you want to sell your property. On average, having that extra roof space in your home can increase its value by 10 – 20%. Think of building a roof terrace as an investment.
According to architect advisor, Lord Rogers: “Roof terraces and roof gardens can deliver benefits for individuals and for society as a whole by creating new outdoor spaces, enhancing bio-diversity, reducing flood risk by absorbing heavy rainfall, providing insulation and improving the appearance of our cityscape.”
