Gap at shed ceiling and shed walls

by Linda
(Brooks Ky)

I have an Amish built wood shed, it's about 3 years old, It has double doors and 2 windows, I use it for outside cats, I have covered the windows with screen, and I had a screen door built so their would be air flow and the screen would keep bugs out, I have never had any trouble with flies until this year, it seems that they are on the ceiling, I was trying to see where they were getting in, and I noticed the very top where the boards come together and the sides where the walls attach to the roof, there are 1/4 inch gaps starting to form in places, Can these gaps be fixed with some sort of sealer, I never noticed them before, I can send pics if I need to, THANKS

Insect gap on shed
by: John

Hi Linda,

Is it possible to run some screening to cover up the gap? Filling with caulk might work but that is a pretty big gap for caulking and you may get some that just oozes out?

If it was me I would try to attach screening to cover the gap.

You could staple it using a 1/4" arrow stapler.

Hope this helps answer your question Linda.
