Roofing options for your garden room
We offer two roofing options for our garden rooms: EPDM and coated metal sheeting. EPDM is by far the most popular of the two due to the considerable extra cost of a metal roof.
EPDM is a very strong material. In fact, it’s so strong that it’s often used to line reservoirs. Another benefit of EPDM is that it can be cut to fit roofs of any size, whereas coated metal sheeting needs to be manufactured to fit.
The sound of rain falling on the roof of a garden room can be rather therapeutic, and in our opinion, a metal roof is a little nosier than an EPDM roof.
EPDM comes with a 10-year guarantee, but it should last 30 years. In comparison, a coated metal roof may need to be treated to prevent rust every seven years, meaning that in the long term, a metal roof can need more upkeep.
