What is a slant-roof shed?

A slant-roof shed is a building with a single sloped roof, typically attached to a building, and used to store equipment, tools, as well as other items. Aside from being one of the most popular shed types, slant-roof sheds have many applications, from storing your gardening equipment to keeping your bike safe, a slant-roof shed can be beneficial to anybody!

Benefits of a slant-roof shed

  • Affordability: Slant-roof sheds are significantly cheaper to build compared to conventional shed roofs, like gable or multi-slope. Also, if you decide to connect it to an existing building, this will lower the cost even more as it will use the wall of the structure for support.
  • Easy construction: The entire building consists of simple angles and cuts to make, and some slant-roof sheds are built attached to an existing building for support, which allows for a quicker build with fewer materials.
  • Versatility: Slant-roof sheds are very versatile buildings, this is due to their usually small size, allowing them to be constructed virtually anywhere as a place for some extra storage. Also, if you would like to learn more about small sheds, here’s an article for you!
  • Weather resistance: The design of a slant-roof shed includes a single-sloped roof which allows for rain and snow to run off with ease, preventing water buildup, mold, and other moisture-related issues.
  • Appealing: Slant-roof sheds offer a unique design compared to other sheds, which allows them to look good and stand out.

Disadvantages of a slant-roof shed

  • Insulation: Insulating a slant-roof shed can be quite a challenge, this is due to the structure’s design. The walls can be insulated easily, however, the ceiling will be the issue as there is not much space and the roof is slanted so not all insulation will work well. Spray foam insulation would be a good option here. Here’s more information on shed insulation!
  • Lack of space: Since slant-roof sheds are typically small structures, this makes it difficult for you to be able to store large vehicles and/or large equipment.
  • No attic: Due to the design of the structure, there is going to be little to no attic as the single-sloped roof won’t allow space for it.

Slant-roof shed maintenance

Routinely inspect your slant shed for damage. Depending on where you live, the weather can get extreme at times, and this can lead to damage to your shed. These damages can include anything from leaks to cracks. You’d want to do a yearly check for these types of issues and be sure to patch leaks immediately as they can cause moisture to get into your shed, which can lead to mold and mildew, as well as damage your equipment.

Wash the exterior of your shed. Cleaning your slant-roof shed is important when it comes to maintaining its longevity. Not only will washing your shed benefit its appearance, but it will also wash off any stains before they set in, as well as wash off mold-causing fungi.

Repaint your shed every 2-3 years. For those of you who have vinyl or metal siding, a simple cleaning should suffice. However, if you have wood siding, you should consider repainting your slant shed every few years. You can also purchase an oil-based primer that can fill holes and prevent insects from feeding on the wood.

Prevent pest problems. From wasps and spiders to raccoons and possums, having unwanted guests decide to take a stay in your shed is not ideal. These pests can damage your property as well as annoy you. Therefore, it’s in your best interest to prevent this from happening. Some things you can do include:

  • Keep your grass cut around the shed.
  • Don’t keep garbage in your shed as it can attract bugs and rodents.
  • Keep seeds and fertilizer bags sealed as they can attract insects.
  • Clean your shed every now and then with a vacuum or broom.

Organize your shed. Keeping your shed organized is important when it comes to shed maintenance. A cluttered shed can provide a space for insects and rodents to live as well as make it difficult for you to find your belongings. You have many options when it comes to shed organization including:

  • Shelves: Great for keeping stuff organized and out of the way, there are many options as well when it comes to shelving for your shed from shelving units to wall-hung shelving, you can enjoy the organization benefits while maintaining your choice of style!
  • Hooks: There are plenty of different hooks for organizing your slant shed. There are short hooks that are good for holding tools like brooms and shovels. There are also longer hooks which are good for storing cables and hoses!
  • Boxes: Boxes are another great option for organizing your shed, you can put all your smaller objects in boxes and even group them by category!

Check for mold and mildew. Mold and mildew thrive in damp and moist environments. Mold spores travel through the air and when they land on wet surfaces, they begin to grow and spread. Therefore, you should take the steps to prevent moisture from entering your shed. You can use proper insulation, seal cracks, as well as invest in a dehumidifier to help prevent mold growth. If you notice mold growth in your shed, you can spray white distilled vinegar on it, let it sit for an hour, then wipe it away. If you need more information, here’s an article covering how to deal with mold!
