A shed roof style is the simplest of designs, with just a single sloping roof field covering the entire structure. In order to achieve the slope, the walls of the structure are not all the same height. The front wall is generally a couple feet taller than the back wall, while the side walls themselves will slope. This style of roof is the easiest and cheapest to build, and is often associated with the name lean-to. A shed roof, as its name implies, is generally used for sheds but are also used in home additions as well as porches. These structures can either be attached to the home or can be stand alone.
Pros: Simple design, ease and cost of construction.
Cons: Limited structure design
