At HAYMAC Timber Buildings we understand that the price of a new stable block or field shelter is generally out of reach for most people who already have a stable block or field shelter, albeit at the end of its serviceable life.
Often the best option is to refurbish your existing stable block or field shelter with a new watertight roof and maybe new stable doors and repairs to the panel walls and kickboard lining. With a fresh coat of stable paint, your refurbished building will look as good as new once again and offer many more years of faithful service.
Perhaps you have just outgrown your existing stable block and need more space; we can build an extension to your current stable block giving you the extra space you need. Look further down this page to view one of our stable extensions.
Stable & Field Shelter Roof Repairs
More often now, we are finding that the first part of a stable that fails is the roof sheeting. This is mainly due to the fact that the roof purlins installed by many stable manufacturers are put too far apart, this causes the bituminous corrugated roofing sheets to sag over time and then allows the sagging roof sheet to hold water, dirt and leaves which, over time, weakens the sheet until it ruptures.
The Onduline specification states that for roof slopes of between 10 & 15 degrees the purlins should be spaced at no more than 450mm apart and for roof slopes greater than 15 degrees the purlins should be no more than 610mm apart.
The problem with stable roofs is that they are generally around the 15 to 17 degree slope mark and the purlins are typically set at around 600mm which puts the Onduline fitted to these purlins right at the minimum slope level for the roof sheeting and purlin spacing; this inevitably causes premature roof failure.
The roof sheets on most stables and field shelters should only be installed with purlins at a maximum spacing of 450mm in line with the Onduline manufacturers recommendation - please download the Onduline specification for installation using the button below.
