When planning how your shed roof, you should imagine the whole shed and not just the roof, the whole yard and not just the shed. Choose a design that will not only be functional, but stylish and complimentary to your entire property.


Design is based on personality, function, taste and maximizes the effectiveness of your shed. The function of your shed will determine the size and style required. For simple storage of garden equipment, a garden shed is perfect, whereas a bigger shed is required for storage of recreational vehicles and tools. A workshop is ideal for the handyman who likes to create, and storage space is a must for large families.

These are all things that will determine the type of shed that you need and indeed the type of roof that suits your needs best.
