There are two options for the roof. The standard being the EPDM rubber roofing system and the other being a more sustainable choice is a living green sedum roof.
The roof on a studio is flat in appearance, however, a carefully designed taper in the roof pitch allows for the water to flow to the back of the garden room ensuring no water is sitting still on the roof for a prolonged period of time. This is then drained to the side of the studio through an attractive custom built open aluminium chute.
Although people may be sceptical with flat roofs as historically they have been known to fault, the technology has improved dramatically since, and is now EPDM is a very common and popular system used on many flat roofs due to its exceptional durability and performance. The membrane comes with a standard 15 year guarantee for your peace of mind.
Standard Option: EPDM Rubber Roof
EPDM offers unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation, extremes of both high and low temperatures, and ultimately ageing. Installed as a single membrane there are no joints, minimising the chance of a leak.
Upgrade Option: EPDM Rubber Roof + Sedum Green Roof
The green roof consists of the same materials and membranes as the standard roof system but with an additional vapour barrier and filtration system along with the sedum planting. There are several advantages of using a green roof, not only visually but also added sound and heat insulation and many sustainable benefits. The sedum is practically zero maintenance and is incredibly durable, living for weeks without rain or light.
