There are a number of options worth considering as roofing for your garden shed or for your shed roof repair. Each type has its own pros, cons, and best areas of application. Keep reading to learn more about the different garden shed roofing options.

Steel Corrugated Panels

This garden shed roofing option is the most popular for DIY or commercial sheds. Many shed suppliers include steel corrugated panels as part of their product. Steel corrugated panels are also incredibly durable and waterproof.

One of the biggest benefits of this roofing option is ease of installation. You can install the panels yourself, even if you are not a professional roofer. The panel edges overlap with one another and, if building codes allow for this, you can easily install them over existing roofing without having to remove existing shingles.
