    We had a new shed 3 months ago and we’ve noticed the roof is bowing on the inside.

    no sign of damp, no issues on the roof and guttering alongside is clear.

    where do I go from here? Do I need to support it more?

    Looks like its too big of a span for those timbers and they are too far apart. Who did you buy it off, I'd be going back to them.

    Great thanks.

    high street sheds in midlands, I’ll go back to them.

    Just remember it's a shed. It's not a proper building that follows a code it's built down to a price.

    Could buy some 4x2s, screw them to double up the joists and straighten the timbers as you go.
