Lean To Shed Roof – When building structures on your property, you will be faced with the choice of roof styles. Many different types of roof styles are common, such as the gable roof, the butcher’s hook and the gable roof. Some of these techniques are easier to build than others but may have other benefits and limitations that should be considered. The shed style roof is a simple plan, known for its versatility for many various designs.
A shed style roof has a single inclined plane without gables, ridges or valleys. It gives a flat surface for a variety of various system purposes. It is sometimes called the “lean” roof and is often used for the construction of elementary structures. Shed-style ceilings are sometimes used in combination with other roof styles to give coverage to additional roof additions.

Simplicity is this type of roof strong point. It can be used in different types of structures such as pot sheds, storage sheds, garages, dog houses or any other type of design that offers some protection against the elements while allowing easy access. The construction can be unilateral open or closed unilateral. Shed ceilings are often associated with the house or other structures to provide an additional area under roofing, such as porches or patio areas. Shed-style ceilings are a good option for building on, long, narrow front porches as well. This type of roof would not fit wider porches, however, as the roofline would look out of place with the roof line of the house itself.
