Now’s the time to give your shed roof some love before the harsh weather of the winter months sets in. That way you can make sure your tools and gardening equipment stay dry during their winter hibernation.
Firstly, you should check the overall condition of the roofing. Are there any parts of the shed roof covering coming away from the shed? Is it cracked, torn or are there any holes (check the interior to make sure there’s no water getting in)? If so, you may certainly need to consider a better quality shed roof covering.
Traditionally a shed roof will be covered in felt. Cheap and easy to apply (simply cut to size, nail it down and you’re done), it’s often not the most durable way to cover your shed roof. Shed roof felt tends to be relatively low quality when compared to the type used for commercial house building.
All Somerlap shed roofs are covered in heavy duty felt as standard. However, we do stock alternative roofing products, both of which can save time and money:
NEW corrugated roof sheets
A new addition to the Somerlap range, the Mini Profile Corrugated Sheet is the ultimate in shed roofing. Manufactured by Onduline, it’s durable, lightweight and practically maintenance free. At £13.86 (Inc. VAT) per sheet, it’s an incredibly cost effective product and even includes a 10-year manufacturers guarantee. Made from hardwearing Bitumen, Mini Profile Corrugated Sheets are easy to install; there’s no mess and your finished shed roof will last for years.
Rubber roof membrane
Boasting a life expectancy of 50 years, Somerlap’s Rubber Roof Kit offers a high class finish to the roof of any outdoor building. Made from EPDM rubber (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, in case you were wondering!) it has an outstanding resistance to ageing and can withstand extreme weather conditions. it’s also resistant to chemicals, oils and acids. If you only want to protect your shed roof once, then the Rubber Roof Kit is ideal.
