A question on flat roofs and how rainwater is drain from them.
What is the standard way to drain water off a flat roof?
I have a single-storey extension on my property which has a flat roof.
There is gutter running along one end of the roof and a downpipe at
It appears that there are a couple of pipes running through the 'lip'
at the edge of the roof and into the gutter. Rainwater run through the
pipes (from roof-outlets?), into the gutter and down to the drain.
Does this sounds like a standard construction?
The reason for the question is that I've just had the guttering
replaced by a large windows/fascias/gutters company in the South-East
(not naming names yet!)
The two pipes now no longer run into the (new) gutter since this is
above the level of the pipes, nstead rainwater now pours through the
pipes and down the side of the house!
Really just wondering if the construction of the extension is so wacky
that the fitters didn't realise what the pipes were?
Thanks in advance!
