    Do you know anyone who has had that type of covering? It looks pretty good and has long life expectancy.

    I have put it on a new garage/extension and would recommend it. The life expectancy was the most attractive thing to me.

    If you want pics of my garage, let me know.

    Cheers.

    The cost price was comparable with good quality felt but with none of felts inherent problems. I hope to get at least 2 to 3 times felts lifespan out of it so
    I thought it good value.
    I did not cost against fibreglass because the EPDM appeared to be such a simple diy installation, for me anyway!

    we nearly always spec fibre glass for our loft conversions nowadays, mainly because it has such a long life, also if it does fail its just a case of adding another layer over the top.The only thing is I wouldn't want to have to rip one off.
