Wooden Garden Sheds
A place to store your garden equipment is important, no matter what size outdoor space you have. A traditional wooden shed is often the favoured option, with styles ranging from the apex to pent roofs.
An apex roof is a style that has the maximum height down the middle, whereas a pent roof has one high side and is generally a rectangular shape. Corner versions are also available, which is great option for space saving in the garden. The timber used in sheds can vary, offering ship lap, overlap, feather edge, and tongue and groove styles of construction. They all come at different price points, with the shiplap and tongue and groove styles best suited for heavy-duty and high-end security uses. These have timbers that interlock offering great durability, and they are frequently used as secure tool stores or even workshops due to the robust timbers used.
Sheds generally come with a factory finished dip treatment preservative with is perfect if you don't have time to paint it once installed, although they will need coating within the first year. Pressure treated styles are popular, as the timber used here is factory pressure treated prior to manufacture, which offers long term protection. There are many considerations when planning to construct a garden building - shape, timber style, windows, single or double door, and use. For example, you may wish to use it as a potting shed, so it will need windows to allow for plant growing. You may require no windows for added security. Installation can be also an option on some of the ranges, and these will be built from your pre-assembled shed base.
