Hi Chaps

I'm building a small two section storage chest to house my toddlers bike, pressure washer, car vacuum and car cleaning bits. The roof area is 0.85 x 1.85m

I bought roof shingles from B&Q because I liked the look over regular felt, however I am having some trouble finding an underlay for it. I tried at a local roofing supplier but they only had 50m sq. rolls.

What purpose does the felt underlay serve, is there an alternative? Can I get away without it?

you will need felt on a roof that shallow
to prevent capillary action or windblown penetration you will need a massive overlap on the tiles
or roof felt as your waterproof layer and tiles as your decorative layer

Thanks big-all

The shingles have a "solid" top half and the shingles with cutouts on the bottom half and have a 15cm overlap by default (see picture), is that sufficient?

The pitch is around 15-20 deg, which I though would have been enough for water to run off? It was a trade off vs aesthetics, a larger a pitch wouldn't have looked good in my view.

Cheers

ahh ok it looks shallower in the picture thought it was nearer 8 degrees
you probably will be absolutely fine
belt and braces---thin bead off sealant centrally along the overlap on the tiles
i am sure someone more versed with felt tiles will be along soon and give more useful advice :lol:
