If you have decided roof felt is not the right option for your shed, garden room, summerhouse or other outdoor building but you’re not sure what else to pick, you’ve come to the right place! We’re weighing up the pros and cons of our different roofing sheets to help you decide which is best for you.

Before we start, let’s look at the qualities which all of our roofing sheets have in common. Each are:

  • Lightweight and watertight
  • Weatherproof - they can withstand snow, heavy rain and heat
  • Noise-reducing - keeping sounds in and out
  • Easy to install - no specialist tools are required
  • Eco-friendly - made with roughly 50% recycled fibres
  • Free from asbestos and hazardous substances
  • Free from metal - will not rust or corrode
  • Can be installed on top of an existing felt roof!
  • Can be installed on both wooden and metal building frames
  • Virtually maintenance-free - clearing debris will be the only task for years to come

We have designed and manufactured our roofing sheets to be super DIY-friendly so that no matter what DIY experience you have, you will be able to install them.
