Asked: 2019-08-08 23:48:47
I really want to build a new shed in my backyard to house all my new tools. I bought a new house but no shed. Kind of a bummer really. Can anyone tell me how to build a flat roof shed?

I came across this site description as I was researching flat roofs for sheds. You can build a flat roof shed using plywood. You should do an underlayment first, then make the corners beveled, dry-fit the roofing, and glue the rubber. Then, you can finish it with by sealing it with glue-down EPDM rubber membrane system. It’s quick and easy to install.

Are you sure you want a flat roof for your shed? I mean there might be better roofs that can help prevent water damage. However, if you do decide to use flat roof, I would use plywood and EPDM rubber membrane system to seal it with since this stuff is really strong. It can help with any potential water damage.

You can build a flat roof shed by using plywood as you wood of choice. You should always do an underlayment and then you can have the corners beveled. Some other things you have to do is dry-fit the roofing and glue the rubber. However, you can seal it by using a useful thing called EPDM rubber membrane system. This stuff is good since it can prevent a lot of leaks from happening since it makes it watertight.

You can use plywood and do an underlayment. However, you should also use EPDM rubber membrane system. I hear this stuff is really good. It keeps water from getting through which is really handy for flat roofs since they are prone to having a lot more damage from rain than other roofs.
