Types Of Garage Roofs

There’s a multitude of options to consider when selecting garage roofs, offering various materials, styles, and colours. Below, we outline the most prevalent types of garage roofs for your exploration.

Old asbestos garage roof in Perth

Asbestos Garage Roofs

Once a common option for garage roofs across the United Kingdom, asbestos has been prohibited due to its health risks, despite its previous popularity for durability and strength. New asbestos garage roofs are now rare.

If your garage in Perth and Kinross predates recent regulations, it likely has an asbestos roof. Vigilance is essential for detecting signs of deterioration, such as flaking, splitting, cracks, or leaks. The emergence of any of these signs compromises the safety of the roof.


Pitched / Apex Garage Roofs

When discussing “Pitched” or “Apex” garage roofs, we’re referring to roofs with angled or slanted designs. Mono-pitched roofs slope to one side, though they’re less common than flat roofs. The natural slant facilitates rainwater drainage, eliminating the need for guttering systems.

Pitched roofs are commonly found on double or dual garages. Unlike single garages, those with pitched roofs typically integrate guttering systems to efficiently manage water runoff.

Tiled Garage Roofs

Tiled garage roofs are a less frequent choice, typically found on pitched structures. Within this category, various tile materials are available, including concrete, plastic, clay, wood, asphalt, and metal, each with unique advantages and disadvantages.

Concrete tiles are renowned for durability and strength, making them popular. Plastic tiles offer excellent insulation, durability, and affordability. Clay tiles provide weather resistance, although they are heavier. Asphalt tiles are valued for their long lifespan and cost-effectiveness. Lastly, wooden tiles are appreciated for their aesthetic appeal.

Firestone rubber garage roof Perth

Rubber Garage Roofs

When addressing rubber roofs, we specifically focus on EPDM Firestone rubber roofing, well-known for its suitability for flat garage roofs and other flat surfaces. While EPDM Firestone rubber demands meticulous installation due to its distinct characteristics compared to other garage roofing materials, it provides remarkable longevity, especially in Perth’s harsh weather conditions.

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

One minor challenge is the necessity for dry weather during installation, which can pose difficulties, particularly in winter.

Lastly, we arrive at the most traditional choice for garage roofing: felt roofs, often seen on attached garages and those with flat roofing. Selecting a felt roof can be a prudent choice, provided it undergoes proper installation and maintenance. It’s a cost-effective material known for its ease of installation and repair.

However, felt roofs lack inherent strength and rely on a sturdy base. They’re vulnerable to damage from weather conditions and impacts. In areas with extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold, felt may not offer the most suitable solution.

Garage Roof Replacement Options

When contemplating garage roof replacement, you’ll encounter several options, each with its own cost considerations. The price of replacing your garage roof hinges on the type of roof you choose. Your options encompass:

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 a full asbestos roof replacement.

Often people choose to install cladding over the asbestos sheets to safely seal it off. This is more affordable, quick to install and a100% safe and secure option.

EPDM Firestone Rubber

Recently, EPDM Firestone rubber roofing has gained significant popularity for its capacity to form an airtight seal. EPDM, known for its lightweight, flexibility, and durability, offers substantial advantages as a rubber material. It’s commonly installed as a single sheet, eliminating the need for joints, thereby enhancing waterproofing. The simplicity of installation, requiring no heat and utilising water-based adhesives, further contributes to its appeal. Additionally, EPDM is compatible with various roofing bases.

The cherry on top? EPDM roofs boast a lifespan of well over 50 years!

Garage Roof Replacement Benefits

Below are numerous compelling reasons to move forward with a garage roof replacement and factors to consider hiring Garage Roofs Edinburgh Ltd.

Quick Installation

In simple terms, the longer the job takes, the higher your expenses climb. With Garage Roofs Edinburgh Ltd, there’s no need to worry, as our costs are agreed upon upfront. We also pledge to replace your garage roof within a maximum of two days. In fact, on over 90% of our projects, we complete the replacement in just one day. However, depending on the garage size and whether joists require replacement due to rot, it may extend to two days.

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 wise to avoid durations exceeding 2 to 3 days, as this should rarely be the case except under specific circumstances.

Long Term Warranty

Every garage roof we install comes with a minimum 20-year warranty. Notably, the Firestone rubber roofing product carries a manufacturer’s warranty of at least 20 years, with an expected lifespan of 50 years.

Upon completing the job, we provide all necessary paperwork and documents for your records.

Garage Roof Replacement Cost Perth

The cost of a roof replacement depends on your current roof type and the replacement option you choose. Generally, replacing flat roofs is less expensive than replacing pitched ones. Quotes vary depending on the required work and the type of roof selected. In Perth, the cost of replacing a single garage roof may range from £1400 to £3500.

A standard garage roof replacement costs FROM £1400, an asbestos removal and roof replacement starts FROM £1800 and a Firestone rubber roof starts FROM around £1900.


By now, you should have a thorough understanding of what to expect when considering garage roof replacement in Perth. It’s crucial to select a reputable roofing company and obtain multiple quotes for comparison. Many have discovered that our quotes are at least £1000 cheaper, if not more!
