Help Solving Issues With Wet Shed Roof and Insides

Postby andymarra » Fri Jan 26, 2018 7:35 am

Hi all,

I'm hoping someone might be able to help me out with some issues I'm having with a new shed I built.

It's only been up for approx 2 months, but the inside is already feeling slightly wet and the roof is even wetter.

I didn't install a base to build the shed on as it was going on concrete slabs on our patio, so assumed that this would be sufficient. Could this be where water is getting in? I've noticed mould appearing recently as well which is another issue.

Is there anything that I can do to mouldproof the shed without having to install a base?

The roof felt I used was standard that came with the shed, would it be better to replace it with better quality?

Many thanks for any help or advice you can give, I don't want a new shed wasted so soon!
