This shed has been leaking for years… good thing my husband can fix ANYTHING!
The following two pictures show the original shingles. They have been on the shed since it was built. (We estimate 15 years)
We used Tamko Heritage architectural shingles. They can be bought at many local Lumberyards. (Support local!)
This is the roof after the shingles were put on! Instead of ripping the existing shingles off, my husband chose to lay over the existing layer. It saved time, but could possibly lead to premature shingle failure. With time the layer on the peak of the roof will eventually lay down. Homes are usually roofed in the heat of the summer because the shingles lay down better.
To help you estimate the cost of your roof use Inch Calculators roofing calculator. This calculator even allows you to enter the cost per square feet of the type of shingles you want to use.
