Protect your sauna from the elements and keep it looking its best for longer by protecting the wood with a shingled roof. We recommend adding these asphalt shingles to keep water off the sauna and increase the wood’s longevity. The shingles are black in color. Note* not installing a roof system of some sort may result in water seepage into the sauna.



Don't love the look of shingles? Prefer the natural look of wood? Consider a removable rain cover that can be put on or taken off depending on the weather.



Turn the round bottom of your barrel sauna into a flat floor. Just like our sauna, this flooring is made with the highest quality wood and designed to fit all our barrel saunas. Upgrade your sauna experience with flat flooring.
