Skillion Roof Garages

1 April 2021


When you picture a home renovation, you're probably thinking about giving the walls a new lick of paint or installing a new kitchen.

However, the exterior of your house should look just as good as the interior – and this is where skillion roof garages can help.

Known also as a monopitch roof, these contemporary designs are perfect for giving your roof line a literal edge, adding a modern feel to your overall home design.

But just what is a skillion roof garage, and how can you use one to make your property look modern and impressive?

Read on to find out the numerous benefits of skillion garages! If you like what you see, be sure to read to the end to see how you can request a quote.


What is a skillion garage?

Before we get onto the nitty-gritty of why a skillion roof design is perfect for your house, you'll want to know more about garages, skillion roof designs, and why they're significant.

Well, firstly, a skillion garage features an asymmetric slope; the roof is higher on one side. This provides clean lines, a minimalist and modern look, and a contemporary classiness. Though there are practical benefits to this, skillion roof buildings also look very aesthetically pleasing.

While skillion roof types look good on a whole range of buildings, they're particularly suited to garages because of the requirements of these buildings – such as the elimination of drainage problems that the sloping provides.

Enough of that for now, however – we'll get onto these benefits in more depth very shortly!


Benefits of skillion roof sheds

Simple design

If you fancy a sleek, minimalist design that has style but isn't overly complicated, skillion roof garages are your best bet.

Not only does this stylistically enhance garages, but skillion roof designs are pretty straightforward and easy to instal. This leads us perfectly to the next point...

Less expensive

As we've just suggested, skillion roof garages are perfect for those on a tighter budget!

Since the single slope of a skillion garage doesn't require lots of materials, it's often cheaper to install compared to other more complex roof types.

This also means you can keep to a lower budget without compromising on quality – our sheds are made from only top quality roll-formed steel and parts sourced from leading suppliers.

Good water drainage

When it comes to garages, skillion roof models are also a brilliant choice because of their water drainage.

Because a skillion roof garage has a roof that will lean to one side, it means that water and other debris easily glide off of the roof into the gutter, or can be directed away from your buildings where they may cause damage.

In fact, skillion garages are so efficient a design, they're easily one of the most low-maintenance, desired builds around.

You don't even need to leave this at garages – why not check out a skillion roof shed?


The shape of skillion garages and their roof designs also means that solar panels are an easy placement.

These brilliant panels allow you to easily save on energy, while the perfect slope of a skillion garage allows you to maximise the sunlight taken in.

Because a skillion roof garage provides a perfect slope, unlike other garages, this is a perfect place to pop some solar panelling up – taking in lots of sunlight to save on energy costs!


Modern aesthetic

A final, clear benefit of a skillion roof garage is the aesthetic quality.

Skillion Roof Sheds FAQs

Q: What roof pitch should I use?

A: Skillion roofs are perfectly suited to lower roof pitches – you can start at as low as 5 degrees. If you’re after something more angular, you can also go for 11, 15 or 22 degree roof pitches – but any higher and you will need to consider a gable roof instead.

Q: What is the minimum pitch on a skillion roof?

A: A skillion shed or garage can go right down to 5 degrees, given it is a single pane. That’s lower than you can go with a gable roof, and offers just a subtle angle.

Q: What wind rating is my shed?

A: All buildings are supplied in accordance with the AS4055 for your area. Fair Dinkum Builds can supply engineered ShedSafe™ accreditation.
