Felting the roof of your apex shed

1. The first thing to do when felting your garden shed roof is to cut the felt to the right size. For a shed with an apex roof you will need to cut out three pieces of felt. Two of the felt pieces should be slightly longer then the actual roof panels (about 50mm longer) and the other felt piece should be used to cover the gap along the very top of the shed (the apex part) and extend at least 75mm over each roof panel.

2. Each piece of felt must be nailed sepearately. Lay one of the pieces of felt over a roof panel and nail down using felt nails. It should be nailed at the top of the panel with a 50mm overhang at the eave. Neatly fix the gable ends and eave ends with closely spaced felt nails. Once one roof panel is completely repeat the same on the other side.

3. The third piece of felt can then be placed over the gap at the very top of the shed and nailed down using closely spaced felt nails again.

4. The final thing to do is to tidy up the felt at the corners. The fascia board can then be hammered onto the front and back gables, to do this four 40mm nails should be used for each strip.
