30 June 2021


When you consider your outdoor living area - what do you want it to look like?

Sleek, modern, a perfect extension of your home? Well – look no further for your perfect design!

If you've never considered the benefits of a flat roof system for your new patio, we're here to tell you why you should.

These nifty little designs are brilliant for any outdoor area or patio, and what's more – they're very cost-effective; just check in with your local Fair Dinkum Builds outlet for a quote!

Flat Roof Patio Benefits

These patios have a range of benefits suited to your home, so let's take a look at them!


Whether you're a patio expert or a total newbie, you'll be glad to know that a flat roof patio design is very cost effective!

This is because other patio designs – including those with pitched roofs instead of a flat design – use more materials over the area of coverage.

Easier leak inspection

From time to time, even the sturdiest roof may experience damage.

There may come a time when you need to pop up onto the roof to inspect the damage – and admittedly this is easier on a flat roof patio! We always recommend working with a professional though, especially when a job requires safely working at heights.

Easier to clean

One of the interesting things about this design is that, while it's not as angular as a gable roof, it's also not entirely flat.

These roofs have a slight slope to allow rainwater and debris to run off.

This means that you'll, firstly, have less to clean – and that it'll be easier to do so due to the flat design!

Flat Roof Patios FAQs

Q: What is the best material for covering a flat roof?

A: We’re obviously big fans of steel roofing – but there are many good reasons why! Steel is lightweight and durable. Roll-formed steel offers a range of designs and finishes to suit your patio roof’s needs, including enhanced water-carrying capacity, or added corrosion resistance. Some steel roof colours can even help improve your home’s energy efficient rating.

Q: Is a covered patio worth it?

A: Definitely! Your patio should be yours to enjoy, year-round, no matter what the weather is up to. A covered patio not only enhances your outdoor entertaining area but also helps keep the rain out and offers sun protection.

This is just one of the many benefits of a flat roof patio!
