The question of roofing is becoming an increasingly important issue for residents and businesses in Britain, the UK’s second-largest economy.
In the UK, the average cost of a roof is now about £3,200, with a typical two-bedroom flat in London costing around £3.4m.
However, this is not a realistic goal for everyone.
The UK government has recently announced that it is looking at raising the UK average price of a house to around £1.7m per square foot, but many are questioning this, with some arguing that it will only be able to cover the costs of maintenance.
The Government has also promised to build up the housing stock over time, but what happens when the population grows?
How will a country cope with a growing population and will it be able afford to afford a roofing system?
In this article, we look at how the UK is currently dealing with the issue of a growing housing stock, as well as the potential consequences of a rising population.
Our next story will look at the impact of Brexit on the housing market.
