Smile New shed materials

I am interviewing contractors to re-build an attached shed - it will have a sloped roof, like the old one. I have had several suggestions for materials - on the roof, everything from shingles to peel and stick (double layer). I like the contractor that wants to use peel and stick, which I have never heard of. Is that a suitable shed roof in Florida? Also have varying ideas on siding - I am leaning towards T111. How sturdy is that for a shed directly over the studs? Thanks!

Welcome to the diy forums!

T-111 is ideal siding for a shed. It is almost always attached directly to the studs. There are 2 types of T-111. The best is 5/8" thick and works well with either 16" or 24" centers [stud spacing] the other is 3/8" thick and must be attached to 16" centers or less.

I've never heard of peel and stick shingles but I'm not a roofer. I used to live in central fla and believe that the fiberglass shingles hold up better than the asphalt shingles do because of the intense roof heat.
