Refurb an existing flat roof extension

    Hi all, we have a 40 sq metre rear extension built maybe late 70ies. It has a bitumen roof which needs to be replaced. The main house is an 1870ies end of terrace. We have however substantial access problems to the rear of the property and our right of way can only facilitate the width of a wheelie bin. We have spent the last few years doing up the main house and half dicky upped the interior of the flatroof extension about 5 years ago. We tiled it and replastered with insulated plaster board. If money was no issue, we would knock and rebuild something with a load of glass and zinc and get a crane to drop everything but thats simply not viable now.. handballing everything through house is not going to fly either as we have a rake of small kids now and renovation fatigue has set in! so question is does anyone have any design tips re a bitumen flat roof upgrade? There is a 9 inch overhang as is which we are thinking to accentuate and perhaps wrap in zinc. There is nothing on internet about refurbing a flatroof extension and would be most grateful for any idea, thoughts or observations. Thanks.
