Which type of roofing you choose for your stables, garage, carriage house, car port, workshop or garden studio/office will depend on a few factors.
Our range of buildings have different pitches and different strengths allowing them to accommodate varied roofing materials. Generally speaking, our OTB 2 ranges work well with the lightweight Onduline sheeting and Onduvilla tiles whist OTB 3 is ready for slate or clay tiles.
Location & Planning Requirements
Whilst many of our buildings don’t require planning consent (you should always check with your local authority) there may be stipulations from planners about roof finishes and colour. Even if not, it is worth thinking about what would best fit in with your surroundings.
Strange as it may seem, not every building requires the most expensive roofing. Stables and field shelters are usually proposed with Onduline as it is quiet during rainfall (keeping horses calm), relatively lightweight, easy to handle and durable.
If you would like to add insulation and boarding, we would recommend choosing our OTB 3 specification for your building as this opens up the option of a clay or slate tile.
Our timber buildings are very competitively priced, but not at the cost of quality. We use high quality, respected products that we trust. That doesn’t necessarily mean expensive; Onduline sheeting is a cost effective roofing solution that is extremely durable, Onduvilla offers a tiled-effect that looks great, whilst Tapco tiles are a fantastic slate alternative.
Alternatively, our OTB 3 specification timber buildings are ready to receive a heavier roofing tile.
