Common Questions About Shed Roofs

What is the Best Shed Roofing Material?

When buying a shed roof, you should pay particular attention to the weight, longevity, and cost. You should also ensure that the material is easy to fit, otherwise you’ll need to account for the additional cost of a skilled tradesperson and specialist tools.

There are several popular shed roofing materials that are lightweight, durable and economical. These include roofing sheets, shingles, tiles, and membranes. Whilst they can vary in price, they will each last in excess of 15 years with minimal maintenance.

Lightest Shed Roofing 

Weighing only 5kg each, bitumen roofing sheets are very lightweight. This makes them easy to handle during installation and reduces the strain placed on your garden shed. Despite them being lightweight, they are able to withstand strong winds if adequately fixed.

Toughest Shed Roofing

Guaranteed for up to 40 years, metal roof tiles are by far the most durable shed roofing material. This is due to their steel core and granular coating working together to prevent corrosion and withstand impact from falling debris.

Cheapest Shed Roofing

At approximately £5 per square meter, bitumen roof sheets are the most cost-effective shed roofing material. Despite their low cost, they offer an impressive lifespan of 15 years and can be easily fitted by homeowners with only a hammer and handsaw being required.

What Wood is Used for Shed Roofs?

In most cases, plywood is the most suitable material to board a shed roof. This is due to its impact resistance and ability to withstand damp conditions. 18mm plywood is ideal but ensure it is suitable for exterior use.

Plywood is also recommended for the floor of your shed. This must be at least 18mm plywood and should also be suitable for exterior use. Some homeowners also choose to place a damp-proof membrane beneath their shed for added protection.
