Log Cabins and Garden Buildings Installation

Generally we do not see the need for the placement of a membrane (roofing felt or IKO underlay for all garden buildings as it is not generally necessary for leisure buildings and has not been recommended for over 15 yeears.

However IKO now DO recommend this.

They are recommending IKO Glass Fibre Underlay 20m (Type 3B) which we can supply. This is similar to a standard roofing felt and if you are chooseing to use a membrane we would recommend felt over the IKO membrane.

We leave this up to you the customer to decide if you need an extra layer of felt or membrane under your shingles. Whatever you require we can supply the shingles, roofing felt or the recommended membrane. Please see the Roofing Felt page for the membrane option.

Each tile has a bitumen strip which melts in the heat of the sun securing your shingles. As an option we offer felt shingle glue and this is also now recommended by IKO for use on the ridge tiles.

However, as installers of log cabins over many, many years we have found neither to be always necessary but we leave it up to you and IKO recommendations and can only support their recommendations as a retailer of their product.

In exposed areas, the coast, highlands etc we always recommend the application of glue on the leading edge of each roof tile regardless.
