    Default Cover old shed roof?

    We have an old house in Florida that has an old 10' x 14' shed built of cypress. The structure is solid but the roof is terrible. It's the old tar and gravel type that's been tar patched many times. I'm wondering if there's a way to cover this with something better without the work and mess of removing the old roof.

    The right way is always the best way, and that will be to strip it down to the deck, repair any damage, then install a new roof.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!

    About 10 years ago I had a job like this. The house had not 1 layer of rock roof, but two. What a mess.

    Anyway, we removed the two roofs, had a lot of cleaning to do, worked on the deck (replaced worn out water damaged plywood), beefed up a couple of rafters and did a complete roof job. Never had a call back.

    Listen to spruce, even on a tiny job like an old shed - do it right the first time.
