only pic which shows roof



Don't forget to insulate the metal doors as this does make a difference in winter

Nice one I had an idea for the roof but you have just given me an easier option. I take it you just battened the walls, insulated then boreded over with something ?

Just picked these up from halfords they were reduced from £150 to £75 then they had a web only flash sale on with a further 10% off which made them £67.50 each so I bought 2 !

As posted some simple solutions there painting simplest and cladding does add cost. Would not bother cladding the roof yet if your looking to replace it.

Wear proper protection and dispose of the roof properly as possibly asbestos, local tips often have an asbestos container in one of there depot's generally just need to double bag the asbestos and place in the container.

You could do corrugated sheeting or you could use osb board, that could be fibreglass covered or rubber etc.

Thanks for the advice mate it's just the front tiled section that needs replacing so no hassle with disposal. This is the next job to do just waiting for a decent bit of weather.

Ah ok... well cladding roof then should keep any asbestos dust from being created is it is asbestos.

The concrete tiles on the front will be heavy i expect there lighter these days but people used to get the concrete tiles put on there properties as they were cheaper than slate or clay tiles but ended up with bowing roofs as the roof was never built to take the weight.
