Roof Style on Log Cabins
The roof on apex and pent log cabins is a crucial part of your new garden building, so it is important that the right materials are used in its construction. The main purpose of the roof is to protect your valuables from rain and snow, thus keeping them dry. Besides this, it helps to ventilate the cabin and aids the long life of your building. There are several designs for a roof such as an apex roof, sometimes referred to as a gable roof which looks like an upside-down ‘V’. This design is very popular in Britain as it is quite attractive when situated in your garden. The basic design consists of two roof sections meeting in the middle of the building. This roof can slope in either direction; certainly, the better manufacturers would be able to offer this. The pitch or angle on the apex shed roof tends to be in the region of at least 15 degrees up to about 25 or 30 degrees. This allows water to flow easily of the roof and away.A second design is a pent roof, sometimes called a ‘lean-to’, although strictly speaking a ‘lean-to’ would have three sides so the cabin would be fixed to an existing house or wall. Another name is a mono-pitch, and the characteristic of the pent roof is that it has a single slope on the roof. Typically a shallower pitch than you would find on an apex shed but very functional. This is a straightforward design but is a very popular option. Can appear a little ‘boxy’ to look at, but if it is out of sight can be very practical.
Some gardeners would use the storage space inside the roof space on the apex buildings, but if you do, it is vital to provide extra strength to the roof itself. The reason for this is that the roof would only have been designed to take the weight of the roof boards, the roofing felt and any snow which may lay on it during the winter. Provided you ensure you add extra support then this can offer additional storage for light items, such as plastic piping, copper pipes and timber beadings. The pent style garden shed benefits by having the highest space at the front, and in this space, you can fix shelves about the shed windows. This will give you extra storage space in a very convenient area and easy to get to.
Besides the apex and pent styles usually found on garden cabins and summer rooms, there is another style which would typically only be found on top-end summerhouses, and that is the hip roof. This is like the roof on a detached house and consists of 4 parts meeting in the middle of the roof so water can drain off in all four directions. These types of roofs are quite complicated to make so would typically only be available in set sizes.
Another primary consideration is the type of materials used to make the apex and pent cabin roof and also the type of material used to cover the roofs. You will find that quality manufacturers will use material which will ensure a very long life for your building. At the other end of the scale, you will find that unsuitable materials (for long term peace of mind) are used as the cheap buildings are made down to a price with the cheapest materials being used.
On the Trentan pent log cabins, EPDM rubber felt roofing is a good option. Being made of a single sheet of material makes for a great pent roof on any lean-to type building which has one side higher than the other. This allows the rain to run off the mono-pitch roof efficiently.
