How long will the roof covering of an Arkipod last? This question is answered as much by where the Arkipod is placed as to which roofing material is used. Under certain types of tree or very close to the sea would be places where the Arkipod could experience harsher conditions. We are open to suggestions and requests on roofing systems, but our preference is for the naturally protected wood, Larch or the classic farm covering, corrugated sheeting.
Larch wood is valued for its tough, waterproof and durable qualities. Top quality knot-free timber is in great demand for building yachts and other small boats, for exterior cladding of buildings, and interior panelling.
The corrugated metal cladding is a fantastic product which is ubiquitous with the Irish farm. We will soon be building an Arkipod here in our yard with metal roofing.
If after many years your roof is starting to show signs of rot or rust, Contact us to remove the roof and re-clad with the covering of your choice. The roof covering protects the build underneath and is easily replaced.
