    Does where you live affect the feasibility of a given roofing design or/and material option?

    "I don’t feel that it should, most trade counters will stock all similar items, maybe different manufacturers but all will give the same end result, most roofers like myself are willing to travel to jobs so if your chosen spec/materials are not specialised in your local area you would be able to find a roofer in surrounding areas,
    If I can assist further feel free to ask"

    "It only matters about the pitch of the roof.. If you are using a tile or slate it wouldn't be suitable on a flat roof and would need to be above a certain pitch"
