The COVID-19 lockdown has changed the way we live our lives. Current social distancing rules mean that we can’t meet up with others indoors like we used to. Those of us lucky enough to have a garden will probably spend a lot more time in it this summer. Weather permitting we can use it as a safe place to catch up with friends and family. However, an old garage that is neglected and leaking can become a bit of an eyesore in our precious outside space. If this is the case you have several options.
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 a recent article in the paper from Good Housekeeping, ‘Don't keep your clutter in the garage’, pointed out that this is far from ideal. Damp garages can cause wood furniture to swell or contract, make paper in books and photo albums curl and electrical items to end up broken and rusty. So in the end, it may be more cost effective to sort a leaking garage roof sooner, rather than later.
There are a number of different reasons why it is a good idea to replace your garage roof.
