    My flat roof needs replacing and I'm going to install a warm roof. A friend of mine who is a roofer would prefer to use torch on felt, but that leaves me wondering what fixings to use to secure the thick 'sandwich' of OSB and insulation - I'd prefer the plastic tube type where the screw ends up deep inside just leaving the plastic dome showing, but of course they're not suitable. Any ideas?
