    I have a large shed - ex deep litter harlow shed - which has cement sheeting on the roof with about 8 corrugations per 23" - or about 73mm - or 2 7/8"
    I used to find in wickes a PVC sheet with the same corrugation which was great to replace the old fan outlets with a rooflight instead - also a hole in the roof could be easily repaired by slipping a whole PVC sheet under the damaged one - avoiding as much as possible creating waste that may contain asbestos. Now the stuff in wickes is 3" and does not do the same job for me.
    Does anyone know where I can find PVC corrugated sheets with 2 7/8" pitch?

    Many thanks - Is that profile exclusive to Steadmans? or may there be other compatible suppliers or designations?

    Now that I have got my eye in with your help - I see it's wickes that are out of step - only offering 3" iron profile whereas the 72mm is actually more normal in cement sheets - I'm off with an inch tape to check whats around locally.
