Summer House Roof Options

Transforming your summer retreat into a haven as unique as you are requires careful consideration, especially when it comes to roofing. At Scotts, we take pride in offering a diverse selection of roofing styles for our garden summer house models, ensuring that your outdoor sanctuary reflects your individual taste and preferences. Whether you’re looking for ideas, exploring options, or delving into the finer details of your desired roof style, our collection has something to suit every discerning homeowner. Crafted with precision in Thrapston, our timber roof structures boast stress-graded timber and a breathable underlay, guaranteeing a watertight finish. Join us on a journey through the exquisite range of summer house roof designs, each meticulously designed to elevate your outdoor living experience.

Many of our timber summer house models are supplied, as standard, with a moulded, composite glass fibre roof. However, other roof styles are available at an extra cost. View our range of summer house roof designs below.

  • summer house slate effect glass fibre roof

    Slate Effect Glass Fibre Roof

    A single-piece moulded glass fibre roof is supplied as standard on all small and large summer house models. This hexagonally-shaped roof has a maintenance-free life of 20 to 30 years providing generous protection against UV rays. Designed to realistically simulate slate tiles or lead, the style of the roof varies depending on the model chosen.

    The slate-effect glass fibre roof is supplied, as standard, with the Balmoral, the Baltimore, the 2.2m Newhaven and the 3.4m Sun Ray Garden Room Summer house models.

  • summerhouse lead effect glass fibre roof

    Lead Effect Glass Fibre Roof

    A lead effect glass fibre roof is supplied as standard only on the 2.4m Burghley Summer house. This roof has a long life expectancy and is completely maintenance-free. If you would like your garden summer house roof to look a little more rustic and naturistic, then it would be easy to allow moss or plants to grow from the top.

    The lead effect glass fibre roof is predominantly found on the Burghley Summer house and offers a clean and modern aesthetic to your garden room.

  • summer house glass fibre reduced pitch roof

    Reduced Pitch Glass Fibre Roof

    The 2.2m Newhaven Corner Summer house is the only model available with a modified slate-effect glass fibre roof that keeps the height of the building under 2.5m.

  • summerhouse cedar shingle roof

    Cedar Shingle Roof

    A natural alternative roof option to blend in with your garden. The rich warm tones of the cedar shingle roof, combined with a striking copper finial, offer a dazzling feature that will be the cherry on top of your garden. Scotts fits the highest quality, A-grade Western Red cedar shingles, to give a twenty-to-thirty year life expectancy with minimal maintenance.

    The cedar shingle roof is supplied, as standard, on the 3.0m and 3.6m Burghley and the 3.0m Newhaven.

  • summer house cedar shingle roof without copper finial
