What Are The Best Roofing Materials For Sheds?

The right roofing material can add life and beauty to your small structure. A quality roof creates a polished and finished look, adding the final touches to any design. Selecting the right roofing for sheds is also important as you will rely on this small structure to house your tools, toys, or whatever you choose to store inside.

But with so many types of roofing materials on the market today, which one should you choose?

 

Types of Shed Roofing Materials

The building materials used in your shed’s construction will dictate the strength, longevity, and overall quality of your small structure. As such, it is essential to consider which shed building materials you will want to use to get the most out of this addition, especially when it comes to the roofing of your shed.

That being said, what are the most popular roofing materials for sheds? Consider using one of these four materials as your roof of choice the next time you construct a shed:

  • Asphalt
  • Cedar
  • Steel
  • EPDM membrane

 

asphalt roofing for shed

Asphalt Shingles

For over a century, asphalt has reigned supreme as one of the most popular shed roofing materials on the market. Asphalt shingles provide an inexpensive yet durable form of roofing for homes, sheds, and other structures.

Using asphalt will reduce the overall cost of constructing your shed build, but it could also shrink the lifespan. Asphalt offers individuals the lowest cost roofing option for their shed compared to other materials on this list. However, the low cost might compromise the quality and longevity of the material when compared to other, more robust roofing materials. Typically, the lifespan of asphalt ranges from 20 to 30 years, depending on the type and quality of asphalt shingles used.

That being said, asphalt is still one of the top choices for roofing as it offers builders an easy installation process and a quality look and feel at a competitive price.

Cedar Shingles

If you’re looking for a naturally beautiful shed roof design, consider using cedar. Cedar wood shingles or shakes are the most popular form of cedar roofing for small structures and sheds. Cedar shingle designs offer individuals a high-quality roofing option that is naturally waterproof and looks beautiful. Add character and elegance to any shed with cedar shingles.

Cedar shingle designs possess a lifespan of 50 years, so they are as durable as they are beautiful. Western red shingles are a popular wood shingle of choice, as the natural colour and grain create an eye-catching feature of any small structure.

 

steel roofing for shed

Steel Roofing

Steel roofing is a type of metal roofing material that has grown in popularity over the last few years. More and more homeowners use steel or other metals as their go-to roofing material as it provides an added layer of protection and durability to structures.

Steel roof panelling offers homeowners a unique yet versatile look that goes with various personal design preferences and aesthetics. And the best part, steel roofing possesses a lifespan greater than 50 years when cared for properly. Highly durable and pretty much impervious to snow and rain, this roofing material is the perfect fit for shed builds throughout Canada.

Steel roofing will be more expensive than the other material options on the list, especially when used on a house. But, at least with a smaller structure, you will use less material overall, and it will last longer than many other options, making metal roofing for sheds a quality choice. Learn more about the pros and cons of metal roofing.

 

EPDM roofing for shed

EPDM Roofing Membrane

EPDM, ethylene propylene diene terpolymer, is a roofing material that provides builders with a durable and watertight roofing option. This sleek, synthetic rubberized roofing material can stand up to all types of weather and climate conditions, making this option the perfect choice for the Canadian outdoors.

Typically, the EPDM roofing membrane works best on a ‘flat’ shed roof design, adding an overall modern and polished look to your structure. Available in black and white, this simplistic yet high-quality material works well with any building colour scheme.

 

Things to Consider When Choosing Your Shed Building Materials

When it comes to your roofing designs, you want to choose shed roofing materials that will work for you, your climate, and your wallet. The shed roof design must tie into the structure’s design as a whole while also providing long-lasting durability and protection for the things held within.

When shopping for the best roofing materials for sheds, consider these tips before settling on your preferred medium,

  • Seasonal weather and climate: Do you live predominantly in a warm environment, or do you experience all four seasons? You will need to choose a roofing material that can stand up to high winds, heat and droughts, heavy rains, and sleet and snow, depending on your location.
  • Purpose of the shed: What is your shed’s purpose- for storing gardening tools and outdoor supplies, or is it for comfort and relaxation? Choose a material that suits the use of your shed.
  • Length of use: Will you be using this shed for many years to come, or are you looking for a quick build? Longer lasting materials will cost more money, so you will need to weigh up the length of use against the cost of construction to help determine what you are looking for.
  • Personal aesthetic: What shed roof design and look are you going for? Opt for a material that works for your personal preferences and overall vision.
  • Trustworthy suppliers: Who are you securing your construction and roofing materials from? Are you getting the best deal and a high-quality product from this person or organization?

Update Your Small Space With These Ideas

The tiny spaces in your home shouldn’t be looked over just because they’re small. Many of us fall into the rhythm of using small spaces for storage, cramming as much as possible into the nooks and crannies. But you can do a lot more with that space than just piling in your old holiday decorations and rusty gardening tools.

There are many ways to utilize the space and make them uniquely your own. Time to clean out those small backyard sheds or modular garages and give your small space a facelift with these decorating tips listed below!

Decorating Tips for Small Spaces:

Next time you’re looking for a quick home project for that long weekend, why not consider freshening up one of your small spaces in your home or backyard. You can even get the whole family involved to make redecorating a fun affair for everyone. Make an old area feel like new, no matter the square footage, with these fresh decorating tips for small spaces.

 

Brighten things up with a fresh coat of paint

Instantly brighten up a small pool house or tiny modular garages with a nice new coat of paint. If your backyard pool house or shed is looking a little rough around the edges, then a few layers of a new paint color could be just the thing to liven up the space.

Take into account the function and feel of the room and pick out a colour that suits the mood. Worried the colour might overpower the small space? Consider these color and pattern tips for small rooms. It also doesn’t have to be a wall you splash in colour. Why not an old dresser, mirror, or chair? Breathe new life into your furniture with a colour that grabs attention.

 

Put new handles on doors and drawers

Switching up those old handles with something new and fresh is an easy and cheap way to liven up those small studios and backyard sheds. Handles and knobs might not be the first thing you notice in a room, but with tiny spaces, they can still bring a pop of colour that will draw the eye and can tie into the rest of the theme throughout.

You can look for cool vintage doorknobs or drawer handles at thrift stores and second-hand shops that will nicely tie in your space and make a statement. Switch out that old rusty doorknob for a fun vintage find to make a quick and easy update to the small space.

 

Upgrade the lighting

We might not notice great lighting when it works well, but we definitely notice it when it’s lacking! Take a look around your old space and see how you can improve your lighting in the room. This is especially important when working in small studios or using modular garages as a workshop or storage unit.

The right lighting will do wonders for your eyesight and space. Consider new light fixtures for bright, warm, artificial light that won’t strain the eyes. Or why not create or enlarge windows to naturally brighten up the place for a sunlight studio.

 

Use multipurpose furniture

interior tiny space

 

Maximize the flow and capabilities of minimal space by using multipurpose furniture. If you have a dedicated small space you use for hobbies or activities, like a small pool house or studio, why not fill it with furniture that will do more for you.

More than ever, furniture designs have pushed the boundaries to fit into smaller and smaller spaces, like tables turned bookshelves and dining areas stowed away and turned into a bench. You could even make your own stow-away furniture or multi-functioning pieces! Replacing your furniture with convertible and compact items could free up more space and provide extra functionality for you!

 

Be bold

bold wooden small backyard sheds

 

Even if you don’t feel bold all of the time, you can still make brave choices when it comes to your interior and exterior designs. A bland and washed out space can really make the room feel smaller, less inviting. Make a statement with your small space instead, and bring attention to the room with an accent wall of exposed wood or focal piece of furniture.

One eye-grabbing feature can be the linchpin to a good design plan. Consider how you could catch the eye when turning that small pool house into a luxurious spa with lush accent pieces. Or bring out the beauty in your small backyard sheds with a little power washing to loosen away years of dirt to uncover the original splendour of cedarwood.

 

Add a large rug into the mix

decorating tips for small spaces

 

Small studios can look bigger by tricking the eye. Do this by adding a large rug to the area to make it feel more expansive. Thick carpets can make a room feel plush and inviting while also adding a new focal point to the site. They also provide the perfect tool for hiding those less than perfect floors from view. Do away with scratched flooring and add a large area rug into the mix for a fresh take on an old space.

 

Get the most out of those nooks and crannies

corner shelves for small spaces

 

Clear away the cobwebs in those nooks and crannies and take advantage of the vertical space with storage solutions. Small backyard sheds might feel too cramped for all your gardening tools and lawn supplies. Still, by cleaning out those tight corner spaces and placing hooks or shelving units there, you can efficiently utilize the whole corner.

Optimizing storage space also means bringing a bit more organization into your life- something everyone can appreciate!

 

Update Your Small Spaces With Summerwood

If these decorating ideas fail to freshen up your small studios, modular garages, or small backyard sheds, why not start over! Summerwood offers a wide range of small pool house kits or prefab modular garages for a new take on tiny spaces.

At Summerwood, we find inspiration in the small things, and you can too. Find out more about our company’s product before undertaking that next home improvement project!

 

Cleaning Cedar Wood & Fall Maintenance Checklist

Outdoor care and maintenance of cedar

The surfaces of finished Western Red Cedar decks, siding and trim boards exposed outdoors inevitably become dirty and can also be discolored by mildew, algae and moss. These natural elements slowly erode the finishes and as a result, all finishes applied to cedar require regular cleaning and maintenance to perform.

Maintaining a cedar shed, cabin, or cottage should be a bi-annual activity, specifically during the spring and fall seasons. Regular maintenance of your cedar cabin can help to reduce the damage from UV, water, insects and air infiltration, keeping your cedar cabin looking as good as the day you first bought it.

While maintenance on your cedar cabin, shed, or other summerwood product is a necessary chore, it is also a great time to do some work on the exterior of your cabin before the cold weather hits. Although autumn can be one of the busiest seasons for repairs and maintenance, it is also the best time to take advantage of the moderate weather and repair any damages to the exterior before the snow hits. That is why we have come up with a checklist of fall maintenance activities to go over before the winter season hits.

Roof inspection

The fall and spring are also a great time to do a roof inspection, especially while you are up on the roof cleaning the gutters. Make sure to keep your eye out for cracks, holes, and areas that may be susceptible to leaks and make sure they are sealed properly.

 

Clean the cedar siding & wash the exterior

Our Ultimate Cottage Bunkie provides a loft, and an overhang without impacting your footprint.

Our Ultimate Cottage Bunkie provides a loft, and an overhang without impacting your footprint.

Usually dirt is the most common cause of discolouration. We suggest that you wash the exterior of your cedar cabin with a brush and mild water mixed with soap. We generally recommend not using a pressure washer, as this can strip the wood away if you are not careful. By thoroughly cleaning the exterior and letting it dry off, you will be able to conduct an inspection of the cedar. By looking at the condition of the stain on the cedar after they have dried off, you can see if any of the parts of the cedar cabin might need additional work or staining.

 

Watch for mold, mildew or rot

Because your cabin’s exterior is exposed to moisture, it’s important to get rid of mold or mildew build-up, which will likely appear in the form of a black or grayish-green film on the logs. Most preservatives have a mildewcide built in, but regular inspections will ensure they’re doing their job.

Clear the landscaping around the cedar cabin, shed or cottage

 

When you are doing a quick walk around the exterior, have a look to make sure the dirt on the ground has not shifted. If the dirt has encroached towards your building such that it’s touching the bottom of your siding, it can cause the siding to rot due to the absorption of the ground’s moisture. Also be sure to check if there are any plants, bushes or weeds that are rubbing up against the exterior as it’s best to keep an eye on these. A good rule of thumb when it comes to this is that you should be able to have a walk along the outside of your cedar cabin without touching the plants or the cedar cabin. If you do see that there are plants or any other things touching the wood, you can trim them back or consider replanting them somewhere else.

 

Pack up the patio and outdoor furniture
cedar shingles

If you do have a patio at your cabin, it is best to pack it in for the fall. It costs you time and money to set your outdoor space up, so you should make sure that it is packed up safely in a garage or shed to help make sure that you will get another season out of it. 

Test your winter equipment

If you do plan on heading up to your cabin during the winter, it is best to test out your equipment for the winter before the winter. Checking it now will make your life a lot easier and will help make sure that come winter you don’t run into any problems.

Clean the gutters

If you have gutters on your cabin, it’s important to keep them clean as this will help keep water from down the logs. Cleaning the gutters will also help prevent damage to them and avoid having an unwanted mess when you return in the spring.

Stain your cedar

We have had great success in the past using this log and siding stain for staining cabins or sheds. Since these are high quality stains and seals, you will not need to reapply them annually. Remember to check out our other blog post about things you should do before staining your shed, for some other helpful tips. Extreme heat or constant sunlight can work against you when you are staining wood. By exposing the cedar wood to constant sunlight, this can cause the wood to dry too quickly and also leave water marks. If you do plan on staining during the fall, you should follow the recommended instructions on the stains to get the best use out of them.

The Fall Season Will Help Keep Your On Track For Maintenance
McMillan_4

While the fall brings in crisp and nice weather, it is also a sign that colder weather is on the way. Stay on track with your regular fall maintenance activities by taking advantage of the ‘in-between’ seasons. While you are staining your shed, you can also stain your deck and try to get other maintenance done around the shed. By starting this in the fall, it will help to protect your shed from the weather and fluctuating temperatures that will follow, which can cause wood to crack and warp over time. 

Finishing Tips

Backyard Gym In A Shed: Get Your Fit On

If you are continuously rescheduling your daily community gym or yoga studio trips and then failing to find time the next day, you are likely in need of a big change. Instead of shuffling around your full schedule, how about simply changing the location of your workouts? If this seems like a great idea, you are in luck. You can actually create a backyard gym-in-a-shed to always have a rejuvenating workout session waiting right outside your door. This innovative, flexible, and easy to access fitness structure provides all of the benefits of a home gym without taking up precious real estate inside your home. It is also a perfect place for relaxation and free of distraction.

Enjoy the instant accessibility and convenience of the gym from your backyard

The time you spend getting ready to go to the gym, and battling traffic to get there, would be much better spent working out in the comfort of your very own fitness space. With a backyard gym-in-a-shed, you can take a quick one-minute walk out back to instantly access your workout room. Instead of striving to visit the gym twice a week, you can actually make it to your home gym just about every day. You can fit your exercise routine into your daily routine, without trying to manage your schedule to get to the gym. If you still do not have the time for workouts, consider pairing up activities with your exercise sessions. For example, you can make sure you do not miss your favorite shows while you work out by placing a TV near your treadmill. Alternatively, spend your time making phone calls or talking with family while you power through an evening session on your elliptical.

 

Backyard gyms allow total privacy

Feeling intimidated and self-conscious often discourages many people from heading to the gym for an exercise session. Furthermore, it just takes one wrong move or compromising incident and you may feel too embarrassed to ever return. Your backyard gym gives you total privacy as you try out new exercises or use the machines as you see fit. You do not have to worry about feeling embarrassed as you perform your favorite moves or push your prior limits. You will never fret about how you look when you are working out in your own private space.

 

Complete freedom to create your own gym atmosphere

goodgymphoto

To enjoy your own tunes at the gym, you must charge your MP3 player, load up your playlist ahead of time and battle your headphones throughout your exercise session. If you have ever run out of battery mid-workout, you already well know the pain of drudging through a workout to the radio piped in overhead. Luckily, you can avoid that whole mess in your very own gym-in-a-shed. You can equip your shed with a powerful stereo system to listen to motivational songs and belt out the lyrics at full volume. Arrange the speakers around your fitness equipment to enjoy a personalized surround sound environment.

 

You can choose to make your gym entirely customizable

At the community gym, you might feel pressure to conform to a certain fitness role and stick with it until the end of time. Unfortunately, that is just not realistic in the long run. As you search for your niche, you may go from cardio extraordinaire to weightlifting superhero, and back again, in just a matter of years. Switching around does not just allow you to find your favorite exercises and routines – It also helps you build the perfect balance of strength and endurance. By having your own gym space, you can customize it with the fitness equipment and tools you need for each of the exercise programs you try out. You can split the room down the middle to utilize one side for your power rack and the other for your treadmill and elliptical. You may even want to keep the extra equipment well organized in a separate shed for immediate access when you switch back to your prior routines. Make sure that you are keeping your gym organized, even if you are keeping all the equipment in one shed.

 

The landscape around your backyard gym

It doesn’t make sense to add a gym to your backyard and then neglect your backyard and its landscaping. Before you start building your workout shed, be sure to do some work on your backyard landscape and clear the area around where you plan on setting up your backyard gym. Make sure that you are also keeping the area maintained, so that you can enjoy the views of your backyard and you are not trudging through thick weeds to get into your gym.

 

Add some light to your gym
backyard gym and exercise equipment

Most home gyms are set up in the basement, garage, or some other light-deprived, white-walled room around the house. Wouldn’t it be nice to set up a gym in the backyard that you’re excited to exercise inside of and not one that you dread stepping into? Building a backyard gym is a great way to alleviate all of those problems as it offers fresh air, natural light and some (more) scenic views.

 

Building your backyard gym-in-a-shed

To start constructing your very own dedicated backyard gym-in-a-shed, obtain a spacious outdoor structure from Summerwood. You can customize the shed’s size and layout using the Custom Design Center right on the site. Once you create your perfect build, simply order and construct the prefabricated building on your lot. With your shed in place, you will have the space you need to create the perfect home gym environment for your needs. Quickly equip the backyard gym with your favorite fitness equipment and get going on your brand new fitness routine.

8 Essential Garage Storage Tips You Must Try

49970 (2)Sheds-workshops

If you’ve ever entered your garage with the motivation to start your next big project only to spend the day searching for tools and organizing your work space, then you’ve already started to suffer from the detrimental effects of garage clutter. However – you’re certainly not alone in your constant battle against the growing chaos in your garage organization. Approximately 25% of two car garages are so packed with belongings that the homeowners don’t even have room to park a single vehicle in the space. An additional 32% can only squeeze one of their vehicles into the wide stall built for two cars. This is where we’ve come in with these eight useful tips for you to banish the clutter for good, and ultimately commandeer control of your garage space.
 

1. Tool towers are a perfect storage solution
Tool Tower Garage Organization Storage Tips - Summerwood Products

The messy collection of rakes, shovels, brooms and other tall tools can take up a lot of floor and wall space. Furthermore, when you amass quite the stack of these items in the same location, it can feel like quite a chore to dig through and unearth the tool you need every single time. To solve this problem, invest in a rolling tool tower that keeps these long, unwieldy tools standing free and separate in individual sections.
 

2. Sliding storage systems for the garage

The ceiling space is often an incredibly underutilized storage area in the average garage, therefore you shouldn’t let it go to waste. All of the space above you can hold seasonal clothing, sports equipment and other items that you do not use all throughout the year. These innovative hangers allow you to suspend plastic bins just below ceiling level, leaving plenty of work space below.
 

3. Magnetic strips for hanging and holding tools

Throwing all of your hand tools in drawers and hoping you can find what you need later will be a thing of the past once you line your garage with magnetic strips. The strong magnets can hold the heaviest of metal tools firmly against the wall until you need them again. You can place the strips on the edge of your toolbox, workbench or just along the walls in your normal work space.
 

4. Mason jar storage and other storage ideas using jars
Jar storage for garage organization - Summerwood Products

You can use the underside of your shelves for storage by integrating mason jar storage into your garage space. You will need to secure the jar lids to the bottom of the shelf using short screws to create your innovative storage compartments. Using mason jars and other small jars, you can fill them with bolts, nails, washers and other small pieces you routinely need for projects around the house, and then screw them back onto the lid for easy access anytime.
 

5. Bungee bins and bungee cords help you get organized
Bungee Cords to help with storage - Summerwood Products

Your often used sports equipment, including life-jackets, basketballs and catcher’s mitts, likely ends up strewed through the garage after a busy day on the go. You can change all that by creating bungee bins along your walls to hold these stray items. You will just need to attach bungee cords across the interior framing studs in your garage at about four inch intervals to create this storage compartment.
 

6. Chain hooks are perfect for hanging loose items and tools in your garage

Unraveled hoses, cords and lines across your floor space is considered a trip and fall hazard. You can keep these items out of the way by using plastic chain and coat hooks to suspend them from the wall. You will roll up these items like normal, and then slide the chain through the center, securing it at the top. At that point, you can hang the chain from the hook to keep your lines and hoses organized at all times. 
 

7. Milk crates are great for shelf storage in your garage

The area below your garage benches can be used to store small parts, tools and cleaning supplies. Simply place small bins or crates beneath the bench and fill them with carefully organized items. Make sure to label the bins with their contents to quickly spot the items you need as you prepare to start your next project.
 

8. Organizing the garage with rain gutters
old rain gutters for storage - Summerwood Products

Using old gutters you have laying around the house or garage, you can hang them along your walls to create partially enclosed shelves for your spray cans, automotive fluids and cleaning products. The gutter keeps all of the items together in a single area, so you can quickly find the product you need for the job at hand. The line of cans will never block your view of adjacent products to help you avoid spending money on hidden items.

A unique design from Summerwood Products is the perfect addition to any home and an ideal solution for building your own cabin in the woods, as well as a perfect guest house, that can double as an ideal AirBnB cabin getaway.

Over the years we have heard more and more about tiny houses and tiny house design. We’ve seen our customers use some of our designs for custom backyard buildings and turn these structures into anything from yoga studios to jewelry studios (check some of that out here).

Outside view of Tennessee AirBnB - Summerwood Products

Back in 2016 we wrote a blog post about a couple that decided to use Summerwood to create a tiny home in their backyard, we had the great pleasure of working with a Nashville-based client, Rebecca, on the design of a tiny home that now serves as an investment property and offers space for guest overflow. Recently we decided to follow up and see how their Summerwood Cabin is doing.

Residing just outside of the downtown area of Nashville, Tennessee, one of the top vacation destinations in the country. Our customers have created one of the most popular AirBnB’s locations in Tennessee. They have also been recognized as an AirBnB Plus, a selection of only the highest quality homes with hosts known for great reviews and attention to detail. They have also been featured in Travel+Leisure, Southern Living, House Beautiful, the Tennessean, and USA Today.

They spent nine months building and designing the structure (with some help from us of course) behind their own family home, with no prior homebuilding experience and a whole lot of help from friends, family and the internet. When it came down to choosing a design, they decided to buy a Summerwood product specifically because they truly felt Summerwood had the best kit designs out there. “We had looked at a few competitors and just felt there was no match for Summerwood.”

The small cabin serves as a getaway for those that are vacationing in the busy music-filled city of Nashville—and adds a much needed outdoorsy and adventurous factor to the getaway. There are currently over 600 reviews on the home, and we did not see a negative review anywhere to be found.  One previous renter left a review calling the cabin a “sanctuary for the soul.”
