Plywood Roof System
Plywood Roof System:
When you add a shed to our shopping cart the price will default to a Standard Plywood System. ½” thick plywood will be cut to size to fit properly on your rafters overhanging on front, rear and sides. Fasteners are included to secure plywood to roof rafters. You will need to purchase, at your own expense, the type of roofing material suitable – such as asphalt, metal, slate or solar.
More cost efficient, able to satisfy possible building department by-laws
Metal Roof System
Metal Roof System:
If you have decided on our Metal Roofing System, the following materials will be included with your shed kit:
1x4 Western Red Cedar Roof Battens (cut to length)
26 gauge Drip Caps
26 gauge Galvalume Roof Panels
26 gauge Ridge Caps
All necessary hardware to attach the roofing system correctly
Metal roofs are designed to attach to roof battens. Battens are supplied and cut to fit so no dangerous and time consuming cutting will be required. Once battens are attached, install the Galvalume drip caps to front and rear facia. ‘Galvalume’ is similar to galvanized steel and is a hot-dip process. Instead of using 100% zinc as in a galvanized roof, the dip is 55% aluminum, 43.5% zinc and 1.5% silicon, providing additional weathering protection.
Zinc bonds with the steel surface to create a barrier for corrosion-causing moisture
Aluminum naturally resists corrosion and reflects heat
Silicon enhances the adhesion of the coating, keeping it in place when the steel is rolled, stamped or bent
Simply lift and secure precut Galvalume Roof Panels onto battens and secure with included self tapping screws. Galvalume weighs 100 to 150 pounds per 100 square feet and contains about 35% recycled steel post-consumer content.
To complete, place Galvalume Ridge Cap on the apex of the shed and secure with supplied fasteners.

If you ordered a liftgate delivery:
The driver will take your skid to the back of the truck, place it on the liftgate, lower it to the ground and place it next to the truck.
Use the plastic shipping tarp to cover and protect your pieces until you are ready start your project. When finished using it for this…repurpose it!
If liftgated down, take a minute or two to cut the straps and pull off the tarp. Check for corner damages, wood chips, sharp cuts and gouges in the product and if the pallet is broken.
Hand Offload Only:
If you did NOT order Liftgate Delivery, you will have to hand offload:
The driver will take your skid to the back of the truck, cut the straps and hand the pieces down to you. Most individual pieces weigh no more than 30-50 lbs.
There is a time limit of 15-20 free minutes so it is best to have someone there to assist you.
If hand offloading, briefly check all the pieces as they are handed to you.
