What is a Skillion Roof Shed?
A skillion roof shed is a useful and practical building for any home, farm, or commercial site. Its unique roofline resembles the lower half of a pitched roof or a more slanted flat roof. A skillion is a single or mono-pitch roof with the same design possibilities as our gable roof sheds. The single or mono-pitch roof of a skillion delivers excellent functionality and provides a modern look.
The sloping roof design continues to gain more popularity compared to the more traditional gable roofline based on its minimal and sleek appearance. Available in various pitches and with clear spans up to 30 meters we’ll help you design the perfect skillion roof shed for your property.
