    I just did a large shed – roof area over 2m x 3.8m each side. It was also a steep angle on a ply base. I found it extremely difficult working on my own. I've since found your instruction to fit vertical pieces but while fearing for my own demise I decided this was a case for corrugated roofing. Have you had experience with stuff like Onduline or Coroline and can you give any advice?

    Great video – thanks. It would be good if you did something similar for a much bigger workshop type shed.

    How can this be 300-400% cheaper than a fiberglass alternative?
    If the fiberglass option is £100 and this cost £75 it’s 25% cheaper.
    If this cost £20 it would be 80% cheaper
    If it was FREE it would be 100% cheaper.
    The only way for it to be 300% cheaper is if the shop gives you £200 for buying this free product.
    Please tell me where this shop is as I’ve got lots of stuff to buy 😉

    hi @fixmyroof,

    i couldn't find this cap sheet so bought some iko super shed felt that apparently lasts 15 years. 2 rolls for £50. i tried to source the ones in the video but can't find any. do you think the super shed felt is good enough ? its green mineral and doesn't have the black overlapping, covered fully in mineral.

    Why bother with fibreglass if this stuff lasts 20 years?

  • Where can you find the felt used in this video? Your website links to Amazon, but that felt is not listed and I can't seem to find it even after a google search.

    Your link to roofing felt on Amazon is a bit ambiguous, could you clarify please?

    This is old school, like when I was a kid. Don't see it much anymore. A nice simple roof. Really nice! Thank you.

    Good clear precise instructions,covering every detail. Its more videos of this quality that I want to see on Youtube, as some videos can be a real turn off.. Thanks for showing me how to do it right, and the tip for the using top grade felt, I can't wait to get out there and start the job!!

  • Tony Evans 2 years ago

    I don't normally comment on these videos but I have to say I think your instructions are excellent.  Many thanks.

    Fantastic vid. Thank you. My shed roof is a pent roof. How should I do the highest edge of the felt? Just leave 50mm, like at the back and sides?

  • Bob Longhurst 2 years ago

    Many thanks for a great tutorial. I now know what grade of felt to buy, and how to strip off the old felt etc. Luckily I'm not hung like a Stallion so no worries when cutting the felt.

  • paytontech 2 years ago

    Nice and simple roof! I'm not sure they sell felt that good in the U.S. I've only seen poor quality felt like that. If you go over that with an elastomeric coating, it'll last that much longer…

    Love it, trailing limbs and reproductive organs! lol!! Seriously, a great help, thank you.
