Garden Shed Roof Re Felting
If you are thinking about adding a shed to your yard and have never even thought of re felting your garden shed then you need to do some research.
Refelting your shed is not that hard if you know what you are doing.
Once you learn how to re-felch your garden shed, you will never want to attempt to remove that old roof again! The process is easy and can be done by anyone who has basic skills working with their hands. In fact, re-felting your garden shed should be something you are able to do with just about anyone.
The first thing you want to do is get the old shed roof off. The best way to do this is to use your hammer and chisel. Start off with one side of the shed and slowly work your way to the other side.
You want to make sure that when you are re-roofing your old garden sheds that there is plenty of support for the ladder you are going to use to get onto the roof. Once you are satisfied with the strength of the support, you can then move on to the other side.
Before you get started, you want to make sure that all of the nails that are in the wall are hammered out. This will save you a lot of time later on down the road. You also want to test the wall for any cracks or any type of damage.
You will want to look in a light fixture and check for any rust or signs of water damage. If you find any areas of concern, you will need to take action before you have the shed standing in front of your house!
Once you have the old shed in as good a shape as possible, it is time to add new siding to the shed. Most people who re-felp their sheds are interested in a new look, so I suggest you consider painting the shed in a natural color.
It doesn’t have to be anything dramatic, but I highly suggest a nice shade of brown or maybe some silver paint! Don’t forget the door!
Once you are happy with the paint job and the siding, the next step is to add weatherproofing. This may include adding a layer of plastic to the shed in order to help the weatherproofing process.
Another step you will want to take is to add some type of weatherproof coating to your floor and the windows of the shed. Remember, don’t overdo it! You don’t want your new shed to rot away because it was too wet!
When you have finished with your garden shed, I recommend you do one last thing! Seal it! It really is simple, but not many people do it! Seal the shed and then you have protected it from rain, sun, snow, and other types of nasty weather.
Not only will it stay nice, but it will protect your belongings inside from getting ruined because it Rusted!
