The 3 advantages of a garden house with a flat roof


A garden house is available with different types of roofs. Think of a gable roof, asymmetric roof, pyramid roof, pent roof or a flat roof. Each type of roof has its pros and cons. One of the most commonly chosen roof shapes for a garden house is a flat roof. Are you looking for a garden house with a flat roof? Then you have come to the right place at Lugarde. In this article we highlight three advantages of a flat-roofed garden house

Garden house with a flat roof is not always cheaper

An important consideration when choosing a garden house is the cost. However, it cannot be said with certainty that a garden house with a flat roof is always cheaper. A gable roof can be the same price as the same garden house with a flat roof. Therefore, get good information from our dealers. A flat roof is easy to construct and also uses less material than, say, a gable roof. Another additional advantage of a garden house with a flat roof is that you do not need a permit for it so quickly. Because the construction is relatively low. You do need to take into account the number of m² you want to build.

Easily install solar panels

Another advantage is that you can install solar panels on a flat roof. This allows you to easily determine the angle of inclination yourself for optimal efficiency. In most cases, this is 35 degrees. But a solar panel supplier can give you more information on this. On a flat roof, it is quite possible to place panels more out of sight, should you wish to do so. Easily create a sustainable garden house and install solar panels on the roof of your garden house.

Create a green roof

If you choose a flat roof, you can easily create a sustainable one. For example, it is possible to create a green roof, also known as a sedum roof. A green roof is a food source for birds and insects. In addition, a green roof protects against UV radiation, keeping your garden house cool in summer and warm in winter.

Do bear in mind that your roof construction needs to be reinforced if you opt for solar panels or a sedum roof.
