    My garden shed is 6' x 8' apex roof made of chipboard and felted. For years it would seem, a tree has been burrowing its way into the roof but the rest of the shed is OK water damage is bad but that will dry out if I sort the roof and leaks.
    The roof will need to be completely replaced not just felted. Well past that stage of repair
    What is the best way to replace the roof?

    I have used coroline bituminous sheets on several garages/sheds and it works very well. Stocked by B&Q?screwfix/homebase

    Depending on the size of the roof, span and if you want access to walk on the roof, as malcmw says put some ply under it, I used 12mm OSB board

    Some pictures on My Blog

    I did a shed with it as well

    Having done both methods over the years - Coroline gets my vote ;)
