Shed Felt Buying Guides Archives - Ashbrook Roofing

One of the most important factors is how much space you have available for the shed. Measure and mark out the space, making sure you allow room for the door to open and access in and out. Take note of overhanging trees, or other obstacles, that might affect how tall the shed can be.

If space is limited, corner sheds fit neatly into right-angled spaces and lean-to styles are great for fitting snugly along a wall. There are two main shapes of shed roof. How you plan to use the shed and how much space you have available will determine which shape is right for you.

This is the traditional triangular-shaped roof, with two sloping sides meeting in a peak in the middle. A pent roof slopes in just one direction. Usually the roof is higher at the front and slopes away to the back of the shed. Internally, the most headroom is at the front of the shed, where the door is.

The most traditional material for a garden shed, wood is a popular choice with the most variety in style and shape available. Wood may warp over time, but there are various treatments to help you care for your garden shed.

The roof is usually covered in felt, but some have tile-effect shingles. They are weatherproof and long lasting. There are a number of types of cladding available for wooden sheds, but the three main styles are overlap, shiplap and tongue and groove. Overlap cladding consists of individual strips of wood overlapped and nailed together.

The angle of the panels lets rainwater drain away and gives the wood the space to expand and shrink with the weather. Tongue and groove style cladding interlocks together to keep water and drafts out. These sheds are sturdy and have a neater, sleeker appearance. Essentially an advanced version of tongue and groove cladding, shiplap has a scalloped appearance. It has all the benefits of tongue and groove plus the scalloping allows rain water to run off the shed more effectively.

All sheds featured below come with the flooring included or with the option to add it as an extra, unless stated otherwise. The sheds in our list are all made from either wood or metal.

Well its Good Quality Shed Roof Felt Kr been on now for about 7 years to so you will be doing it again, I told you to get the good felt? I don't know about it being the modern way to use battens. My dad was a joiner and he built his own shed over 40 years ago and that was the way he did it, but if I recall correctly the felt back then tore pretty easy.

I've put a few sheds together myself and the instructions for fixing the roofing felt always advise using galvanised clout nails, and they seem to work fine. Smallish Shed? I just felt nailed the first layer on, and then struck a few beads of adhesive on and whipped on t'cap. The rails at the sides and front tighten it down ok. I wouldn't use plastic unless it is UV stable. MrGrimNasty , Aug 25, The cheap felt failed just after 3 years and had to be replaced although I had to patch it before then - in one place after 18 months!

Unfortunately the crows and magpies around here seem to like the taste of it which doesn't help! I replaced it with to better quality stuff from B and Q can't tear it by hand. This has lasted up to now but looks a bit "tired". Thanks for your words of wisdom! That was 5 years ago, and the sheet disintegrated about 2 years later.
