Article Source: http://www.articlesbase.com/ – WHAT ROOF DO I PUT ON WOODEN GARDEN SHEDS





There are many options available for roofing your wooden garden sheds. Some of the things you may want to consider is whether or not you want the wooden garden shed roof to match either the roof of your house or other out buildings/sheds you have on your property. Color and durability are also good things to consider prior to picking your roofing material for your garden shed.

ASPAHLT SHINGLES – This is probably one of the most common roofing options I see on wooden garden sheds. I think this is because asphalt shingles are an economical method for roofing materials on your shed and fairly easy to install. Asphalt shingle life expectancy can be 20-30-40 years depending on which shingle you choose. Twenty (20) year shingles are cheaper than 40 year shingles. Asphalt shingles come in a variety of styles and colors. You can get asphalt shingles that look like shake shingles and you can even get hail resistant shingles. Additionally, some insurance companies give you a credit for using hail resistant shingles on your home so check to see if they do the same for your wooden garden shed. Asphalt shingles are normally installed with round headed galvanized roofing nails but can also be stapled on with an air or electric staple gun. You can also buy or rent a shingle gun that will allow you to attach the shingles with round non-rusting roofing nails.

WOOD SHAKE SHINGLES OR CEDAR WOOD SHINGLES – If you want to give your wooden garden sheds a natural wood looking appearance these are two great options. Wood shake shingles are rougher in appearance and thicker than wooden cedar shingles. Keep in mind with wooden cedar shingles you will get a smoother appearance on the roof of your wooden garden sheds. Both wooden shake shingles and wooden cedar shingles are installed with galvanized nails or staples and most shed owners allow them to age naturally with the weather conditions in your area.

ROLLED ASPHALT ROOFING – Most home improvement centers sell a rolled asphalt roofing product that is made out of the same material as asphalt shingles. This type of roofing material also comes in a variety of colors. I have seen this type of roofing material used on variety of wooden garden sheds because it is probably the least expensive of any type of roofing material and is very easy to install. You should roll it out and nail and you can cover a lot of square footage in a hurry. Seams are just overlapped and galvanized nails used for the installation.

FIBERGLASS PANELS – Many wooden garden shed owners use fiberglass panels for their roofing. Advantages are that you can make a greenhouse out of your shed with these panels – natural light coming in through the panels eliminates the need for lighting – and the natural light also provides warmth into the garden shed through the effects of solar heating.

METAL ROOFS – Metal roofing material is being used a lot these days for wooden garden sheds. You can have the shed roofed in metal just like your home’s roof or use corrugated tin roofing panels like you see on barns and other buildings on farms. Either product stands up well to the weather and is relatively maintenance free. Most homeowners will hire this type of roofing done but installing galvanized tin roofing is really not all that hard. You will need something to cut the panels to length and maybe width depending on the size of your wooden garden shed.

The thing to keep in mind on roofing material for your wooden garden sheds is that there are many options available. I am even seeing clay tile roofs on garden sheds in order to match the home’s roofing. Just keep in mind that whatever you see on a home’s roof can also be done on your wooden garden sheds. Heavier roofing material like clay tiles may require a little stronger roof structure to handle the weight of the clay tiles on your garden shed roof.
