For this asbestos garage roof in Dunblane near Stirling, although it technically serves the function a replacement roof in terms of being new and protected from leaks and the asbestos sheets within, we actually applied metal cladding. Metal cladding is what we most commonly use on old asbestos garage roofs where the integrity of the structure and roof is all sound, but you perhaps want to address some leaks or simply safely cover the asbestos. Metal cladding acts as a safe sealant for asbestos roof sheets, protecting you and the environment from the risk associated with asbestosis and other health issues.

Another asbestos garage roof here this time in Balfron another small village near Stirling located to the west of Stirling town centre and only a short drive from Glasgow. This is a prime example of stylish colour options available with our asbestos garage roof cladding.

Clearly not a garage here! We also provide agricultural roofing across Scotland. This job was in Denny near Stirling for a barn roof replacement, as you can see from the second installation picture it wasn’t a replacement as such (just an easier term to summarise) we applied the metal cladding sealant to protect the owners and environment from the asbestos sheets. This also saved them quite a bit of money from a full removal and replacement option given the size of the roof.

"The team replaced a damaged asbestos roof on a large barn with metal sheeting. They were on time, did a great job and cleaned up thoroughly afterwards. Highly recommended."

Asbestos Roofing

Asbestos was once a prevalent material for garage roofs throughout the United Kingdom. Despite its ban in the 1990’s, asbestos remained a standard choice due to its durability and strength.

However, due to health concerns, new asbestos garage roofs are no longer available. If your home is older, it’s likely that your garage roof contains asbestos, especially if you reside in Stirling and Stirlingshire like so many do.

In such cases, it’s essential to monitor for signs of deterioration, such as flaking, splits, cracks, or leakage. If any of these signs are present, the roof may no longer be safe.

Pitched / Apex Roofs

‘Pitched’ or ‘Apex’ denotes garage roofs with a slant. Mono pitched roofs incline to one side, although they’re not as prevalent as flat garage roofs. Due to the slope, rainfall naturally drains off these roofs, eliminating the need for a guttering system.

Pitched roofs are more commonly found on double or dual garages. Unlike single garages, those with pitched roofs often feature a guttering system.

Tiled Roofs

Tiled roofs are a highly favoured choice for garage roofing, especially on pitched roofs. They offer a wide range of options, including concrete, plastic, clay, wood, asphalt, and metal tiles, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.

Concrete tiles are prized for their durability and strength. Plastic tiles excel in insulation, durability, and affordability. Clay tiles are renowned for their weather resistance, although they can be quite heavy. Asphalt tiles are long lasting and budget friendly. Wooden tiles are chosen for their aesthetic appeal.

EPDM Rubber Roofs

When discussing rubber roofs, we specifically refer to EPDM Firestone rubber roofing. Rubber is an excellent choice for flat garage roofing and other flat roof surfaces. EPDM Firestone rubber requires precise installation, given its unique characteristics compared to other garage roofing materials. However, it offers exceptional durability, particularly in extreme weather conditions, making it highly desirable, especially in Stirling and Stirlingshire.

Firestone rubber comes with a minimum 20 year manufacturer’s warranty, ensuring a long-lasting and durable garage roof replacement. The only minor inconvenience is that installation requires dry weather, which can be challenging during the winter months.

Felt Roofs

Lastly, we have the timeless choice for garage roofing. Often seen in attached garages and those with flat roofing, felt roofs are a common option. When installed and maintained properly, felt roofing can be a reliable choice. It’s affordable, straightforward to install, and easy to repair.

However, felt is not inherently durable and requires a sturdy base. It’s susceptible to damage from weather conditions and impacts. Therefore, in regions with extreme temperatures, felt may not be the most suitable option.

Best Garage Roof Replacement

When considering garage roof replacement, you have several options available, each with its own cost. The best garage roof replacement type often comes down to choice, we will explain the different costs and in some cases insist if there are practical reasons why a particular replacement is best.

Your garage roof replacement options include:

Complete Garage Roof Replacement

Typically, a complete garage roof replacement becomes necessary if your existing roof contains asbestos. For instance, if you have an old felt roof with a sound wooden base, you might only need to remove and replace the felt, provided the wooden structure is in good condition.

In some cases, roof issues can be addressed without requiring a full replacement. Ultimately, the best course of action depends on the specifics of each situation, requiring a case-by-case evaluation to determine the most suitable option.

Asbestos Roof Removal and Replacement

Replacing an old asbestos roof with a new one can incur significant costs. This is primarily due to the health risks associated with asbestos, necessitating proper removal and disposal of the sheets, as well as the roof replacement itself. It’s crucial to inquire about the company’s asbestos disposal methods, ensuring responsible disposal with the acquisition of a SEPA code and without environmental harm. These factors contribute to the higher expense of asbestos roof replacement.

Asbestos Roof Cladding and Sealant

Metal cladding can be secured on your asbestos garage roof to safely cover the asbestos sheets. This cladding sealant acts as a safe barrier, last decades coming with a full guarantee and is more affordable than full roof removal and replacement, cladding also comes in a wide range of stylish colours.

EPDM Rubber Roofing

In recent times, EPDM Firestone rubber roofing has surged in popularity due to its ability to create a tight seal. EPDM is characterised by its lightweight, flexible nature (as expected of rubber), and durability. Typically, EPDM is installed as a single sheet of rubber, eliminating the need for joints, which significantly enhances waterproofing. The ease of installation further contributes to its appeal, as it does not require heat; instead, water-based adhesives are utilised. Additionally, EPDM is compatible with a wide range of roofing bases.

As the icing on the cake, EPDM roofs boast an impressive lifespan of well over 50 years!

Many roofing companies bill on a daily basis. Therefore, completing the replacement within one day is the most cost-effective approach for all parties involved. It’s essential to avoid extending the project beyond 2 days, as this should rarely be necessary except under specific circumstances.

Each of our garage roofs is backed by a minimum 20 year warranty. The Firestone rubber roofing product, in particular, boasts a manufacturer’s warranty of at least 20 years, with an expected lifespan of 50 years.

Garage Roof Replacement Cost Stirling

Quotes can vary based on the extent of necessary work and the type of roof selected. For instance, a single garage roof replacement in Stirling may start from as little as £1300 with other large double garages costing anything up to £3500. 

A standard garage roof replacement costs FROM £1300, an asbestos removal and roof replacement starts FROM £1700 and a Firestone rubber roof again starts FROM around £1700.
