It can be difficult to find a playhouse to match your garden’s aesthetic, many children’s garden play areas are made from bright coloured plastics which can be an eyesore.

Cedar shingle roofing

Cedar shingles are a fantastic roofing solution. You get a perfect waterproof solution whilst incorporating the good looking element of the shingles. The wood is naturally insect and rot-resistant so it requires little to no maintenance. This element is ideal for a roof because a lot of upkeep may mean leaking and it can be difficult to maintain roofing without hiring a professional. As long as you have roofing underneath these shingles your roof will be secure and they won’t need to be replaced for many years.
