    Hi

    Does anyone have any rough weights per sq meter of what the typical flat roofing materials might weigh?

    wooden T&g boarded deck and 3or4 layers of ash felt roofing?

    Thanks

    I'll take a wild guess at 15kg?

    Good find although I have no clue abouts pounds and ounces. What does that equate to in Kg?

    Well theory is of then a bit off!

    Stripped the flat roof today and thought this weighed a bit more than 5kg per sq m.

    SO got the bathroom scales out, weighed my self, then weighed me + as much as I could hold.

    Did this for all of the roof and it came out at 40Kg per sq m.

    :eek:

    Which I am very pleased about for another job I am doing!!!
