The new roof for the veranda...
One of the problems with our old side veranda was the leaking roof and the fact there was no guttering and the water poured over the side. The previous builder recycled the roof of a previous structure which is great but after last summer's heavy rains, we were a bit fed up. With the refurbished veranda we decided to get a product that was 3 layers in one...roofing iron, insulation and lining. A friend had mentioned it to me so DH and I discussed its use with the builder. He was enthusiastic about it but pointed out it was more expensive than a regular roof but he said we'd recoup that extra in less painting needed as the lining has a shiny off white gloss finish. We obviously decided to go with the 3 in one product.
