Hi

My flat (well, slightly pitched) single car garage roof is spent. It's those corrugated cement/asbestos boards, probably been up since the place was built in the 80s. A couple of years back I treated the lower half (section nearest the gutter) with sealant paint stuff and it helped a bit but truth be told the whole lot needs replaced.

I'm not totally settled in this property so I'm not inclined to buy the most expensive / tier 1 solutions for anything I need to do property maintenance wise. However neither am I inclined to buy cheapest.

The current garage roof is basically a few rafters with the corrugated sheeting attached and a gutter at the end. So, if I want to opt for a middle of the road replacement solution cost wise, what should I be looking at? Note I won't be diy'ing this.

What about something like this, basically a modern replacement for what's currently installed?

Onduline - Black Corrugated Bitumen Roof Sheet (2000 x 950mm) (roofingmegastore.co.uk)

If as you say your not sold on the house and looking to move in the not to distant future, then that's the route I would be going down.

Is it a prefab garage?

I wouldn't say I'm looking to move soon, however neither am I settled here, within the next few years I'd say. So I'm not interested in paying for an all singing/dancing replacement roof that comes with a price tag to match.

If by prefab you mean concrete sections then yes, it's a prefab.
 
Yeah concrete sections.

The only other form of cheap roofing is felt, but it's a lot of work on one of them prefab garages as you will have to add joists etc.

So your option of the bitumen corrugated roofing sheets is the best price/performance ratio.
