How long and how much?
Our Shed Roof Repair Process
We take a meticulous approach to diagnose issues and make durable fixes:
Closely inspect roofing material, flashing, penetrations, drainage, etc to locate any damage or deterioration allowing water intrusion.
Determine the optimal repair method for the specific issue whether patching membranes, sealing joints, replacing individual damaged panels, securing fasteners, flashing, etc.
Clean repair areas thoroughly and apply appropriate sealants, barriers, rubberized coating, elastomeric patches, or materials to comprehensively fix source areas allowing leakage.
Ensure repairs made result in a completely watertight barrier and no secondary damage exists which could lead to future leaks down the road.
Clean area and remove all generated roofing debris and leftover patching materials, perform magnet sweeps.
Our roofers have specialized expertise determining how to tackle major or minor issues through precise storage shed roof repair techniques tailored to these unique structures.
Common Shed Roof Issues
Shed roofs are prone to premature failure without proper materials and maintenance. Some problems we often encounter include:
Delaminating Roll Roofing
Where layered roll roof membranes separate due to poor adhesion, bubbles form allowing water intrusion. Targeted patching or sealing joints often suffices.
Rodents, birds, and insects can all chew through organic roofing substances. We use deterrents and make puncture repairs.
On steel panel roofs and flashing, corrosion can lead to perforations necessitating section replacements or rust encapsulation.
Intense sunlight degrades roof polymers over years resulting in brittleness and splitting necessitating replacement.
Request a Consultation or Book a Roof Inspection
Our shed roof experts meticulously examine damage type, extent and location of issues, age and condition of current materials, and anticipated life span remaining with repairs made.
Certain cases like complete UV breakdown call for an entire new roofing system. Where feasible based on assessment findings, we complete repairs accurately returning integrity.

Shed Roof Materials We Expertly Repair
There are several budget-friendly modern roofing products commonly used on sheds that require occasional repair to maximize longevity. The types we have specialized expertise maintaining include:
Heat-welded thermoplastic polyolefin sheets often used as flat or low slope shed roofing. We repair tears, re-weld loose edges, and seal seams that became unglued.
EPDM Rubber Sheets
Durable, heat resistant ethylene propylene diene terpolymer elastomeric membranes. We seal ballasted edge stripping when separation causes uplift issues, use adhesives or tapes to re-affix detached sections, apply sheets over aging panels for water protection.
Polyvinyl chloride single-ply membranes. We repair fractures, seal joints separating at edges or corners, patch holes from falling debris, and reattach disconnected PVC panels.
We re-secure shifted steel or lightweight aluminum panels with new fasteners, and reapply protective coatings over areas where severe corrosion formed. Rust encapsulation preserves structural viability and prolongs structure’s lifespan.
Wood shakes made of cedar or other rot-resistant woods add rustic flair to sheds but require occasional maintenance. Some repair scenarios include:
- Replacing individual damaged, cracked or blown off wood shakes
- Sealing joints at eaves and edges where separation is causing leakage
- Re-securing metal flashing strips disrupted by tree debris
- Applying clear sealants on surface to protect drying cracks from water intrusion without altering appearance
- Selectively replacing severely weathered shakes throughout the roof to prevent widespread leakage
These affordable, versatile shingles made of fiberglass mats coated with asphalt are prone to damage from storms, falling branches and age. We repair them by:
- Replacing individual damaged, cracked or blown-off shingles
- Sealing down curled corners using discreet adhesives
- Applying heat-activated sealant strips over openings between warped shingles
- Reinforcing joints around flashing, vents and roof edges
We also advise when full shingle replacement is needed after extreme storms or when 25% or more shingles are severely deteriorated.
