    Good luck! I'd offer to do it (me and the OH make a great shed-erection team!) but I can't fit in a trip to IOW this side of Christmas

    Aw that is kind of you. My hayman has a mate who might be able to do it, some time! I asked him this morning, so we will see.

    Roofing felt is much easier to deal with when it's warm - so if you can store it somewhere inside the night before, it will roll out better with less risk of cracking or tearing. Doing the job right rather than just a patch will always be a better result, and may make it more appealing to a buyer in Spring (even if they will have to redo it). At least you can get a good pic when it's done and the inside will stay dry.

    That's a good point about it being easier when warm! I can't do photos, I must learn then I might actually sell something. The man is coming on Fridy tto have a look.

    Someone is coming this morning to give me an estimate as the other person didn't come! The price of sheds has gone down apparently and I wouldn't get very much if I sold this one. So, as someone advised, it will be best to have the whole roof done.

    Man came yesterday and put 2 new pieces on the flat bits but left the apex bit as that was fairly new. Charges me 30 which I thought was very reasonable.
