Roof for timber garden building

It was JFK who said, “the time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining”.

Naturally, the 35th President of the United States was speaking metaphorically, and explaining the importance of improving things, even when they appear to be going well.

When it comes to actual roofs, his words really do come into their own, but at Shields Buildings we go a step further:

“Choose your roof carefully, and it won’t matter if the sun’s shining or not, you’ll stay dry”

A high quality roof will be the difference between a building that gives you many good years of service, and a building that becomes the bane of your life.

In part 4 of our video series, we explain the importance of selecting a timber garden building with a high quality roof, and highlight some of the things you need to be watching out for. Watch it here:
