    We took an old lean to shed down a couple of years ago and now want to rebuild it in a new position but close to a neighbouring house, ( which they are happy about). Question is what degree pitch is acceptable.
    Shed size is 30'x45'.
    Thanks
     
  2. Is the angle not already made if you've took it down?

    Well yes and no as I can alter it if necessary. I hear what your saying though. It used to be attached to a Dutch barn and so is quite high at the front but quite low for modern equipment at the back. I was hoping to lower front a bit and raise back a bit to keep the neighbours on my side.
     
  4. 15 degrees is about standard

    What are you putting on roof?

    Just wanted to know what was an acceptable pitch really. I find Christmas a good time to discuss these things with people that it affects as they are usually in a good mood.
     
  6. Yeah know what you mean. Just thinking of you're putting tin on the roof and can get a full length sheet you could have it nearly flat.

    Wouldn't want to go less than 12deg on fibre cement really

    Was an asbestos roof but that's knackered so undecided. Box profile would be cheapest and quickest I'm guessing but the drips from condensation are a pain. So maybe fibre cement.
     
  8. Fibre cement is best in my opinion

    That's been a great help thanks. I'll see what 15 deg looks like. Cheers.
     
  10. How wide is your building?

    Sorry to be a pain but if it was 12 deg what would the back height be then.
