    Does anybody know of anywhere good to buy shed felt at a decent price, I'm in the Cambridgeshire region if that helps. I need a 10m by 1m roll and a 5m by 0.5m, but if you cannot get 0.5m width's then I have no choice and will have to get 1m width.
    Thanks in advance

    P.S. Am I the only one who thinks that we should have Gardening & General DIY Section in this forum.

    It'll be worth looking after then, get the best green mineral felt......The cheap stuff is a lot thinner.

    Stick it down with brush on felt adhesive. Much better than nailing, as soon as you whack a nail through it, it becomes a place for water to get in.

    I re covered my shed with the B&Q cheapo variety earlier this year. Seems more than up to the job to be fair

    My wooden shed was built in 2002 (can't remember what brand the felt was) and the felt lasted till a very windy day a few months ago. A 1X1.5m patch blew off, but BNQ Value's rolls were huge! So I have loads of extra felt lying around in the shed.

    I nailed it on, yes it seems to do the job but it likes to 'shed' lots of stones the first few weeks after installing.
