YardPod Roof Options

YardPods feature a flat roof with or without an overhang. Some jurisdictions measure the size of a YardPod at the roof level (eg: Berkeley), so for a 10ft x 12ft YardPod to stay within the 120sq ft limit, it has to be built without an overhang. When regulations permit, we recommend an overhang which will provide both sun and rain protection.

We offer two ceiling heights, a standard 8ft interior and a 9’6” interior height. The taller can accommodate transom windows about the door(s).

YardPods roof panels are prefabricated with FSC wood joists and the space between is packed with insulation.

A word about flat roofs: Some people express concern about flat roofs, but except in areas with snow loads, they are ideal. YardPods come with a durable roof membrane with a 15 year manufacturers warranty.

Roofing Materials


Duro-Last Cool Roof

Duro-Lat Cool Roof - YardPods
The single-ply Duro-Last roofing system is ideal for any flat or low-sloped application. Extremely durable and easily installed by authorized contractors, the Duro-Last roofing system is watertight, highly reflective, resistant to chemicals, fire and high winds, and virtually maintenance-free. The standard roof color is light grey which reflects solar and is known as a “Cool Roof.”



galvalume yardpods
Galvalume finish corrugated metal is one of the most corrosion resistant corrugated materials offered in the architectural roofing market. Unlike normal galvanizing, this metal material is an actual combination of aluminum and zinc to provide excellent protection. Galvalume-finished corrugated metal will last longer than the traditional galvanized finish.

Standing seam metal, galvanized or coated

Continuous panels run from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves. Because the fasteners are concealed, you only see a smooth continuous ridge extending from top to bottom.
