On face value, guttering installation is a piece of cake, but it is amazing how many installers get it wrong. That's why we have put together a Shed Kit which contains everything you need to install a gutter on your shed. If you need any further assistance then speak to a member of our Technical team on 01622 852695. Shed Installation We install many types of kit-set sheds from small to large, be it Metal Sheds, Glasshouses, Garden Sheds, Wooden Sheds or Resin Sheds. You can use 1x skip sheeting, but you must run diagonal laterals on the underside of the rafters and 45's on the gable ends.
Do you guys recommend I use the asphalt paper under my 1x4 battens as shown in the picture above?Also I've looked around and have had a hard time with finding some good clear instructions on flashing around the metal roof.My plans call for a 6" overhang so I'm sure i'm going to need to add flashing, does anyone know of any good sites or threads where I can find this info or should I start a new topic?
So Tom just so I'm clear your suggesting I first apply 4x8 sheathing, then apply the asphalt paper, and finally the metal roof, is this correct? Louisiana Pacific (LP) uses a manufacturing process that helps prevent termite damage, rot and decay in wood. The rough opening fig.1a is the opening in a wall frame that allows for a door (or window). The rough opening is trimmed (surrounded) by framing lumber which consists of trimmer studs on the sides and header (lintel) at the top.


The rough opening must be big enough to accommodate the door, the door jamb and a little bit to spare. Note: In this particular design the bottom of the door finishes below the floor thus eliminating the need for a doorsill (threshold). Add the hinges to the horizontal rails on the door and then 'hang' the door in place by fastening the loose ends of the hinges to the casing (trim) surrounding the door opening. Fix 50x25 (1x2) wood (door stop) to the jamb around the inside perimeter (sides and top) of the door to cover the gap between the door edge and the jamb. A drip cap is a horizontal piece of molding that is fixed above the door to deflect any water from running inside.
Insert gutter into the first fitting, ensuring the gutter is level with the 'insert to here line' marked inside. Also need 1x4 on the angle under the rafters to provide bracing because there is no sheeting to do it. I've taken some pictures of my fathers old shed and this is the type of metal that I wanted to use on mine. The wood is treated with a Zinc Borate compound to help protect against fungal decay and termites.
Each strand of wood is coated with special binders, adding layer upon layer of strength and moisture resistance.


As the world’s largest engineered wood sheathing manufacturer, we have brought their fine building materials to our line of storage sheds. A little bit of play is needed to ensure the edge of the door does not bind against the door stop when the door is being opened or closed. As you can see from the pics his shed has no flashing, should there be flashing under the roof metal and running over the 2x4 batten to shed water? Also would I still need to use battens on top of the asphalt paper to keep moisture from building up under the roof metal as you can see the metal I'm wanting to use is flat in areas and I was just concerned about moisture build up. Exterior resins are used to complete the process, creating more strength in extreme weather elements.
Also this will be my first time installing a metal roof so any other tips or tricks would be appreciated.
