I’m still looking into this and have a couple of options. Been talking to an acquaintance who was suggesting a galvanised roof, that worries me regarding condensation.

I’m thinking if the walls and roof are well insulated it may be ok, Does anyone have any experience of this and could advise?

My brother had a coloured Galvanised steel roof fitted to his old concrete section single garage about 15 years ago - no condensation as it came as a single piece with no joints fully insulated between the outer & inner layer. It was not cheap at the time just over £1k fitted.

We went on to clad the inside with 2" batons, added 2" Polystyrene insulation between the batons then clad the inside with MDF - we left a gap of around an inch from the floor that was later sealed & painted. He stores his pedal cycle collection in the garage - no condensation or rust issues he also  uses  a small bar type wardrobe heater during the winter using off peak electric.

A company called Steadmans make insulated corrugated roof sheets with various thicknesses of insulation sandwiched between the two sheets. The outside is a grey plasticoat type finish with the inside finished in white powder coat. They are an excellent product and do not suffer with condensation whatsoever. Go into your local Wicks, Homebase etc, look up and you will see their product used in the building. They also make the edge panels etc to make it look professional. It cost me about £1500 to buy the materials to replace the non asbestos roof panels on a 18x20 Compton pre-cast garage. The existing A frames are strong enough to take the weight of the new material as it is lighter than the corrugated concrete panels it replaced. The new panels were really easy to cut to size.

My garage roof is covered with plasticoated steel sheets that come with a flock anti-condensation layer on the underside. Works a treat. I fitted a 50mm layer of insulation board(with an air gap) and OSB sheeting as well to keep the garage usable in winter.

I have workshop plans too, I'm going to use my total permitted development rights so roughly 7m x 5m concrete raft, 4x2 framing clad internally with 12mm osb, pitched roof.  Well something like that anyway although I can't decide if I'd be better going for 8 x 4m

Thanks all, I’m still undecided but I’ve had some other options offered, one of which is with an EPDM rubber roof, I think this is probably my preference, the galvanised roof will take a good bit of insulating I think. I’m looking forward to getting something built though, the garage is getting a bit tight! The triumph is penned in and everything else needs moving to get it out.

Wow! I was going to say that your bike looks incredible, so why do you need a workshop......   but I've noticed that the upper left hand silencer seems to be a slightly off - is the internal baffle just off vertical? Shed and fettling definitely needed 😊.

Get in, that sounds ace, it won’t be big enough though, you know that, right?

Thanks, I think it is very nice, unfortunately that has nothing to do with me, not my work I’m afraid. That’s why I’m looking for a workshop, after some very minor spannering along the way, I’m looking to get some space so that I can get my teeth in to something myself.

We are underway, the base was laid today. Just need the rain to hold off for a little while. Went for a 20x10 in the end, which should hopefully be in place before Christmas with a bit of luck.

I certainly will, so will her indoors, there are currently two motorcycles parked up in the house as the guys needed access through the garage to complete the base and I wasn’t leaving them outside. She’s looking forward to gaining some of the garage space back, apparently we need a dog washing sink installing in there now!
