Type Of Garage Roofs

Numerous options are available when it comes to selecting garage roofs, with a wide range of materials, styles, and colors to consider. Below are the most common types of garage roofs for you to explore.

Asbestos Garage Roofs

Once a prevalent choice for garage roofs throughout the United Kingdom, asbestos has since been banned due to its health hazards, although it was favoured for its durability and robustness. It’s unlikely to find new asbestos garage roofs nowadays.

If your garage is located in Fife and predates recent regulations, chances are it has an asbestos roof. It’s crucial to monitor for signs of deterioration, such as flaking, splitting, cracks, or leaks. If any of these indicators emerge, the roof’s safety is compromised.


Pitched / Apex Garage Roofs

When we mention “Pitched” or “Apex” garage roofs, we’re describing roofs that are angled or slanted. Mono-pitched roofs slope to one side, though they’re less common compared to flat roofs. The natural slant ensures rainwater drains off without requiring guttering systems.

Pitched roofs are particularly prevalent on double or dual garages. Unlike single garages, those with pitched roofs often incorporate guttering systems to manage water runoff effectively.

Tiled Garage Roofs

Tiled garage roofs represent a less common option for garage roofing, normally found on pitched structures. Within this category, you’ll encounter a variety of tile materials including concrete, plastic, clay, wood, asphalt, and metal, each with its own distinct advantages and drawbacks.

Concrete tiles excel in durability and strength, making them a popular choice. Plastic tiles offer good insulation, durability, and affordability. Clay tiles boast weather resistance, albeit with a weight consideration. Asphalt tiles are known for their longevity and cost effectiveness. Finally, wooden tiles are favored for their aesthetic appeal.

Rubber Garage Roofs

When discussing rubber roofs, we specifically refer to EPDM Firestone rubber roofing, renowned for its suitability for flat garage roofs and other flat surfaces. While EPDM Firestone rubber requires precise installation due to its unique characteristics compared to other garage roofing materials, it offers exceptional longevity, particularly in harsh weather conditions typical of Edinburgh.

With a minimum 20 year manufacturer’s warranty, Firestone rubber ensures a durable, long-term solution for garage roof replacement.

One minor challenge is the requirement for dry weather during installation, which can be challenging, especially in winter.

Felt Garage Roof

Finally, we come to the most traditional option for garage roofing. Felt roofs are commonly found on attached garages and those with flat roofing. Opting for a felt roof can be a wise decision, given proper installation and maintenance. It’s a cost effective material that’s simple to install and repair.

However, felt lacks inherent strength and requires a sturdy base. It’s susceptible to damage from weather conditions and impacts. In regions with extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold, felt may not be the most suitable choice.

Garage Roof Replacement Options

When considering garage roof replacement, you have several options to explore, each with its own associated costs. The price of replacing your garage roof depends on the type of roof you select. Your options include:

Full Garage Roof Replacement

Usually, a complete garage roof replacement is best for garages. It will address any issues with the structure and ensure issues such as leaks are dealt with for good.

Some roof issues can be addressed without a full replacement. Determining the optimal solution often entails a case-by-case assessment to identify the most appropriate course of action.

Asbestos Removal, Cladding or Roof Replacement

Replacing old asbestos with a new roof entails significant expenses due to the health risks associated with asbestos. Proper removal and disposal of asbestos sheets, along with the roof replacement, contribute to the costs. It’s crucial to inquire about the disposal method from the company, ensuring responsible disposal with a SEPA code and no environmental harm. These factors contribute to the higher expense of asbestos roof replacement.

EPDM Firestone Rubber

In recent times, EPDM Firestone rubber roofing has surged in popularity due to its ability to create an airtight seal. EPDM, being lightweight, flexible, and durable as rubber should be, offers notable advantages. Typically, it’s installed as a single sheet, eliminating the need for joints, which greatly enhances waterproofing. The ease of installation is another factor contributing to its popularity, as it requires no heat and utilises water-based adhesives. Additionally, EPDM is compatible with a variety of roofing bases.

The icing on the cake? EPDM roofs can endure for well over 50 years!

Garage Roof Replacement Benefits

Here are several compelling reasons to proceed with a garage roof replacement and considerations for choosing Garage Roofs Edinburgh Ltd.

Many roofing companies charge on a daily basis. Therefore, aiming for a replacement within one day proves most cost-effective for all parties involved. It’s advisable to avoid durations exceeding 2 to 3 days, as this should seldom be the case unless under specific circumstances.

Upon job completion, all pertinent paperwork and documents will be furnished for your records.

Garage Roof Replacement Cost Fife

The expense of a roof replacement hinges on your current roof type and the replacement option you opt for. Typically, replacing flat roofs proves less costly than replacing pitched ones. Quotes vary based on the extent of necessary work and the chosen roof type. In Fife, a single garage roof replacement may range from £1200 to £3500.

A standard garage roof replacement costs FROM £1200, an asbestos removal and roof replacement starts FROM £1600 and a Firestone rubber roof starts FROM around £1700.
