Roofing And Options
The standard 12 mm roof of this chicken coop is a wooden cladding designed to provide many years service. It uses interlocking 12 mm shiplap boards, and provides very high levels of management of red mites, (no where for them to hide easily).
The roof being wood, will come pressure treated, this means the wood can be damp and take some time to fully dry out especially during the winter, wood acts as a sponge, so will move, knots may need resealing during its life as the wood moves around and should form part of your maintenance, we would also recommend treating the wood once or twice a year with a good quality treatment ideally containing water repellents to seal the wood, this will be important to do when new for optimum performance of the roof against rain.
We have been selling this type of roof on our chicken coops for many years, and the design has proved very successful.
Optional 16 mm Shiplap Roof - As above in terms of qualities and care but is made with thicker 16mm boards, these make the unit stronger and more durable to the weather, this is the best wooden roof available.
Optional Felt Roof - Our felt roof option has a roof made with 12 mm tongue and groove timber, which we then supply felt in a roll that you fit as part of the assembly. This type of roof will provide a easy to look after roof that needs very little maintenance and provides a water proof layer.
Optional Onduline Roof - This roof type is a wooden frame with black Onduline. The frame comes ready to fit to the coop as part of the assembly and the Onduline is cut ready for you to fit as the final stage of assembly, this provides a maintenance free roof that will provide many years of life, 10 years plus is to be expected.
