At Glick Woodworks, we understand the importance of creating a shed that reflects your vision, whether that means blending seamlessly with your home or making a bold statement all its own. Customization is key, so why settle for generic when you can design the roof of your dreams?

Read on to explore shed roof designs in detail and discover which roof style best suits your custom storage structure!


Shed Roof Types

Shed roof types often mirror the styles seen on homes, allowing you to match your shed to your house for a cohesive look. Alternatively, you can give your shed its own unique character by choosing a contrasting roof style that adds visual interest to your outdoor space. Here at Glick Woodworks, we offer a range of shed roof designs to help you find the perfect complement or contrast to your home.

Gambrel shed roof with vinyl siding

Gambrel Roofs

Commonly found on our High Wall Barn Sheds and Mini Barn Sheds, the gambrel shed roof type feature a two-tier slope that instantly evokes rustic barn charm. With a steeper lower slope and a gentler upper one, this shed roof design cleverly maximizes headroom and storage space in the upper levels. The iconic shape offers a welcoming look while providing ample vertical storage capacity, making it a favorite for those needing more room up top.


Gable shed roof with stone foundation

Gable Roof

The gable roof, a hallmark of our A-frame structures, remains a timeless favorite for its practicality and adaptability. With two sloping sides meeting at a central ridge, it creates a triangular silhouette that optimizes water drainage and easily handles heavy snow. Its clean lines and symmetrical design not only make construction straightforward but also ensure plenty of headroom inside for storage or workspace. The result? A shed roof idea that is versatile enough to suit nearly any environment.


Saltbox roofline on shed for sale

Saltbox Roof

Seen on our Quaker Sheds, the saltbox roof’s distinctive asymmetry sets it apart. Its longer, gently sloping side and shorter, steeply angled side create a unique profile while optimizing overhead space inside. This unique shed roof design also provides added wind and rain protection with its extended slope, making it as functional as it is attractive.


Shed roof idea with Victorian style

Dormer Roof

Our Victorian Shed features a charming dormer roof, where small, raised structures project from the main roofline. This elegant shed roof type not only enhances the structure’s look but invites sunlight through windows, filling the interior with natural light. The dormer adds a delightful touch of sophistication while providing extra headroom that gives the space an open, airy feel.

Additional Shed Roof Ideas & Options to Consider

To come up with shed roof ideas, it helps to know all the possibilities you can choose from. Here are some shed roofing options to consider:

  1. Metal Shed Roofs: While asphalt shingles are standard on Glick Woodworks sheds and are generally the most popular option, metal roofing is also an excellent choice for shed roof design. Metal roofs are known for their exceptional durability and longevity, often lasting over 50 years with minimal maintenance. They’re also energy efficient, reflecting heat away to keep your shed cooler in the summer.
  2. Shed Roof Colors: Whether you’re opting for shingles or considering metal roofing, colors can make a big impact. Shingle shades like gray, black, brown, and cedar offer timeless versatility to suit most aesthetics.
  3. Trim Colors: Though often overlooked, trim color should harmonize with your shed roof. These elements are closely aligned, so choosing trim that complements or contrasts with the roof color will help create a cohesive look. Consider selecting a palette that flows nicely to give your shed a polished and attractive appearance.

Having had 12x20 garage/shed by Glick Woodworks for seven months now and can tell that this is very solid and well built product. Equally important, it was a very easy and professional process to discuss design, get drawings, and finalize order. All my questions were answered, all emails and calls promptly responded to. The installation was right on time, fast, and just a pleasure to watch. Overall, I don't think I'll need another shed anytime soon, but if I do - I know where to go!

I needed to move a shed to a different property. Dave was quick to respond, scheduling was easy, especially important because I had a narrow timeframe to work with, and the move was smooth, uneventful, and with perfect placement. The person who did the move itself was informative, skilled, and pleasant. I highly recommend and will most definitely use again.
