As you may know, there are many different types of shed roof styles, ranging from flat to multi-layered or sloped.
Along the top edge of your shed’s walls, position four beams that are 1-2 inches wider than the walls flat across the top of each wall’s edge and bolt them in place at the corners. Rafters should be 24” apart and need to be notched with a Stopper Cut on the bottom edge a few inches up the beam from the lower end of the rafter. Installing a roof can be quite difficult, but you don’t have to be a master carpenter to install a basic gable roof; with some math skills and knowledge of angles, anyone has what it takes for building a shed roof.
When each beam is in place, they should look like a rectangle or square (depending on the shape of your shed) frame when looking down at the shed.


Typically, plywood is used for this step, but you can use any sturdy material that you’re comfortable with.
One of the simplest roofing designs is the gabled roof, mainly because it does not use a truss system. These beams need to be very securely attached, as they are the supporting components of your roof. When using plywood, nail it to each rafter making sure to attach it securely at the top, bottom, and middle. For a more finished look, roofing tiles can be layered on top of the plywood, starting at the bottom edge of the roof and working upwards to insure water runs off the roof instead of in between the tiles.


It is best to create a template first for these cuts and then use it to cut each rafter, so all of the rafters fit into place identically.
In addition to rafters being spaced 24” apart, each side of the roof’s rafters should line up across from each other at the Cross Beam.
