I built an old single pitch shed and I am going to install 2x4 slats directly on the rafters vertically. What spacing is best? Some say 12” but I don’t see why 24” spacing will work as well. It’s nothing fancy. Just wanna know what spacing I should use
Thanks Preston. This question must be answered by the manufacturer of the product you are installing. It all depends upon product design and testing.
Start with what you are going to be putting on the roof and work backwards from that. Keep in mind, walking on a roof that is 12" spaced is also much easier than 24" spacing and 2x4s are pretty cheap.
