    5 Reasons for Replacing Your Garage Roof Sooner Rather than Later

    Replacing the garage roof is something many of us put off until it becomes an absolute necessity. We are worried about the cost and extra hassle. However it is not usually as big a job as people think. A good garage roof company should be able to remove and replace most types of garage roof in just one day.

    Replacing the garage roof is something many of us put off until it becomes an absolute necessity. We are worried about the cost and extra hassle. However it is not usually as big a job as people think. A good garage roof company should be able to remove and replace most types of garage roof in just one day. Here are some good reasons for replacing your garage roof sooner rather than leaving it till much later! 
    1. Water damage
    Water leaking from problems in an old garage roof can quickly cause problems to underlying structures. It can cause roofing timbers and wooden fascia boards to rot. It can also lead to mould and damp problems inside the garage. Leaving these problems to grow unchecked will cost more to fix, when you eventually get round to doing it.
     
    2. Asbestos
    Many old garage roofs contain asbestos. This is not a problem in well maintained roofs but as soon as old roofing panels start to deteriorate the asbestos contained in the crumbling cement can escape. If breathed in, asbestos fibres can be extremely dangerous to human health. If your garage roof is getting to this stage it is better to get it replaced now rather than taking any chances by leaving it till later.
     
    3. Extra space
    A dry, sound garage is an extra room in a property. It can be used for many different purposes e.g. gym, home office, storage space etc. A damp garage is not much use for anything and can quickly become an eyesore.
     
    4. Adds value
    When you come to sell, a well maintained garage will definitely provide kerb appeal as well as add value to your home
     
    5. Less stress
    A problem taken care of is one less thing to worry about. If you know that your garage roof has old, loose roofing panels it is better to get it sorted out straight away. Otherwise you will have the constant stress of worrying that loose panels or bits of garage roof will fly off during one of the many storms and gales Scotland frequently suffers from. 

    If you have an old, leaky garage roof but are worried about the cost of replacing it, get in touch with Garage Roof Scotland or Tel 07932637646. We fit affordable, good quality garage roofs throughout Scotland. We can supply all materials, remove your old garage roof and fit your new one in less than a day. We can also remove and dispose of all your old roofing materials and as we are SEPA licensed we can dispose of asbestos garage roofs safely too. 




    Should I Convert My Flat Garage Roof to a Pitched One?

    Many people believe that flat garage roofs are bad news and never a good idea. However as a garage roof expert most of the problems that I come across are not due to the roof being flat. They are caused by poor workmanship when the roof was installed, sub-standard or very old roofing materials or poor maintenance by the owner of the property. ​ If you have a leaking flat or pent garage roof and are thinking about converting it to a pitched one you should be...

    Many people believe that flat garage roofs are bad news and never a good idea. However as a garage roof expert most of the problems that I come across are not due to the roof being flat. They are caused by poor workmanship when the roof was installed, sub-standard or very old roofing materials or poor maintenance by the owner of the property. 
    If you have a leaking flat or pent garage roof and are thinking about converting it to a pitched one you should be aware of what is involved. New steel trusses and purlins would need to be built to size, to fit the structure. These would then have to be fitted to the garage before the new fibre cement roofing sheets could be attached. The cost for this to be done would be considerable and could easily double the price of the job. In my opinion in most cases it is just not worth the extra cost, unless you definitely prefer the look that a pitched roof provides.

    In fact, most flat garage roofs are not actually flat. They will be built with a slight slope to allow rain water to run off them easily. In addition, being constructed with the right roofing material makes all the difference. If full length galvanised, corrugated steel garage roofing sheets are used, there should be no problems with ‘overlapping’ areas. Areas of overlap can be places, where through time, water eventually penetrates and causes problems. These roof sheets are mounted on rigid galvanised steel rafters. I have been using this type of roofing material on flat garage roofs since 2010 without any problems. In addition, with this type of material most lengths and widths of garage can be covered. For maintenance free convenience, I usually fit them with specially profiled galvanised steel wrap around flashings or PVC angle verge boards.

    If you need any help replacing your garage roof, please feel free to get in touch with us at Garage Roof Scotland. We are experts in garage roof repair and replacement and work throughout the whole of Scotland.


    Has Storm Hector Damaged Your Garage Roof?

    The full force of storm Hector hit Scotland on 14th June 2018 with gusts of wind reaching up to 100mph in exposed areas. Several roads and rail routes were blocked by fallen branches and worse still, a woman in Edinburgh was left hurt by a loose slate that had been blown from a tenement roof. High winds are extremely dangerous which is why it is always worth taking the time to check that your garage roof is securely fasten down and is not rattling around. If screws have come...

    The full force of storm Hector hit Scotland on 14th June 2018 with gusts of wind reaching up to 100mph in exposed areas. Several roads and rail routes were blocked by fallen branches and worse still, a woman in Edinburgh was left hurt by a loose slate that had been blown from a tenement roof. High winds are extremely dangerous which is why it is always worth taking the time to check that your garage roof is securely fasten down and is not rattling around. If screws have come loose or are missing, the wind can get beneath loose panels and quickly rip them off turning them into lethal flying objects.
    Summer is usually the ideal time to give your garage a good check both inside and out. Then if you decide that the garage roof needs repaired or replaced you can take your time and choose the best garage roofing company for the job. You can check out their website and read their customer reviews and testimonials. If it is left until autumn or winter when wet, stormy weather hits and you have a badly leaking garage roof this can force you into making rash decisions just to get the job done quickly. Instead of taking time and doing some proper research you end up with the first garage roofing contractor that answers your call. This can mean much higher prices and poor workmanship.

    If your garage has been damaged by the storm Hector, it is also worth remembering that most people can claim for repairs under their home insurance. It is worth contacting your insurance company to check the details of your policy.

    If you have a garage roof that needs replaced or repaired, please get in touch. We are experienced garage roofing experts and work throughout Scotland. Give us a call on 07932637646 to find out more or for a no obligation quote.

    Is your garage damp, leaky and full of junk items that you have not bothered to throw away?  Why waste all that garage space?  If your garage was watertight you could convert it into a useful space for you and your family.
    By replacing your old garage roof with good quality roofing materials you could create a really useful extra room while at the same time increase the attractiveness of your property for when the time comes to sell and move on. Below are a few ideas for people who may want to tailor that extra garage space in line with their own unique personalities.   

    Hobby/Craft Room

    ​Many people love making things which is why all types of crafting is very popular in the UK.  Sewing, knitting, dressmaking, embroidery, paper crafts are some of the most popular at the moment. Why not convert all/part of your garage into a hobby/craft room. This can give you an extra space for you to enjoy your hobby in peace and have somewhere safe for your materials and  latest unfinished projects to lie undisturbed until you have time to go back to work on them again.

    Work Shop

    ​Unused garage space can be a blessing for the person that likes to build and tinker with tools.  The neglected area in the garage can be converted into a workshop, which is perfect for someone that enjoys DIY.  All the essential tools can be stored in the garage and projects can be developed in an appropriate environment.  The garage space is a perfect area for a creative person to work on their ideas e.g.  wood work, metal work, building cars or even inventing the next scientific invention that is set to change the world.

    Pub

    ​You may agree that a garage is an ideal place to store cold drinks, but why stop there when the whole garage space could be converted into your own bar?  Just think about it, stock the fridge with your favourite beverages and enjoy the company of friends without having to worry about missing the last train.  You can have a nice flat screen TV on your wall and the sport enthusiasts can enjoy the latest big football match or cheer on Andy Murray in the next tennis Grand Slam.

    ​Work space/study

    ​Extra garage space can also be converted into a home office, which is ideal for people who need a quiet space away from the main living room where the TV is likely a noisy distraction for many.  Having an area just dedicated to a work space will no doubt help the productivity of people who need their own area for concentration.  A home office space can be used for many different types of people such as, the small business owner, a freelancer or even a person that just needs a study to undertake their tasks
    If any of the garage conversion ideas sound interesting but your garage roof is in need of repair due to damp, mould or leaks then please do not hesitate to contact us.  We replace all types of garage roof using top quality materials from Lidget Compton. We can usually remove your old roof and replace it with a brand new one in just one day. We even dispose of all the old roofing materials too. All our new garage roofs come with a 10 year guarantee so give Paul a call on 07932637646 to find out more.
