Flat is the go-to roof type for small storage sheds or lockers.
Why Choose a Flat-Roofed Storage Shed?
If your priority is utility and you don’t need a large shed, flat is the optimal roof type. Here’s why:
The depth of SteelChief’s flat-roofed sheds ranges from just 0.78m to a maximum of 1.52m. Height meanwhile ranges from 1.81m to 2.11m. This small size means flat-roofed sheds can be tucked under a verandah or down the side of a house without becoming an eyesore. Flat-roofed sheds are ideal for maximizing storage space without, for example, blocking a window.
Have a unique space that doesn’t suit a standard shed size and shape? SteelChief can customize to precisely your specifications.
SteelChief’s most popular flat-roofed shed is 3m wide shed with a set of double doors. This design provides ample storage for garden tools and camping equipment while offering easy access to even bulky items like golf clubs.
You can add a set of shelves and a shovel or broom rack to maximize the use of space in your comparatively small flat-roofed shed. Additionally, with no pitch, a flat-roofed shed in a carport or warehouse gives you the option to store boxes on top of the roof. This can help you to clear the clutter, improving the utility of your work space.
Since flat is the simplest roof type to construct, flat-roofed sheds are the least expensive. However, it’s important to remember that without a pitched roof, you may have issues with debris build up on a flat-roofed shed placed outdoors.
Flat-Roofed Storage Shed Alternatives
Flat-roofed sheds are likely the best choice for your small-scale storage needs. However, if you want a larger structure to use as, for example, a workshop, you’ll likely need a pitched-roof shed.
