items off the concrete floor.

Whatís the difference
between all the different roof options?
There are three main types of
roofing when it comes to garden sheds;
Gable Roof Garden Sheds - This
type of roof peaks in the middle. This is the most
attractive looking shed & the peak [gable] adds strength
to the shed's roof. In a standard Oldfields Treco shed
the gable end is over the doors, this means that the
water runs off to the sides & not on your head when
entering the shed.
Roof Garden Sheds - This type of roof is flat.
The flat roof model is
only on smaller [narrow] sheds as there is no structural
strength in them. They are usually incorporated in the
budget line as well.
Skillion Roof Garden Sheds - This type of roof slopes to
one side. This is a limited range & can slope to the
front or rear of the shed.
