Considerations When Shopping For Garden Sheds

When you are buying an Garden Building, we recommend you go with the best builder you can manage to afford.

We are committed to providing the best value for money by making use of only the best top quality materials. This makes your garden structure a lasting time investment.

Here are the top 10 things to keep in mind prior to making your purchase:

Each one of our structures can be delivered and installed at no cost within our complete end complete service.

Reputation of the Company

If you are buying what could in essence be part of the house it is important to ensure that the seller is trustworthy. Do they have experience in tailor-made construction? Are they open to your ideas and thoughts? A reputable company will have a long track record of offering high-quality garden structures as well as an experienced team of pleasant skilled, trustworthy and knowledgeable experts.

Quality Construction

A strong, durable timber is vital to the durability and strength of your construction. A lot of sheds are built with the larchlap the cladding. It can provide people with the best value for money but the downside is unlikely to last more than just a few years. Choose a building made of redwood pine, instead of whitewood spruce since it’s less susceptible to knots breaking loose. We make use of sustainable FSC(r) certified wood and we consider our environmental responsibilities seriously.

A concrete base that is solid and professionally laid base is the perfect foundation for any garden construction. Paving slabs are suitable for smaller structures.

A well-constructed floor

For a sturdy and long-lasting flooring, we suggest 19x125mm, flooring boards with tongues and grooves placed on 38 x75 mm planarised floor joists tanalised at a minimum of 500mm (from the center of floorjoists) away. Man-made flooring used in inferior sheds bow, bend and eventually begin to rot. We also offer our customers with the option to have their floor heated particularly if they plan to spend long hours in their garden structure.


Windows made of joinery have a lower chance of leak than similar windows. Glass that is toughened is more resistant to breaking and should it ever break, it does so securely; which is a great benefit for families with children. It is also worth considering whether you’d like to open the windows especially during warmer seasons.


Doors made of joinery are more sturdy and are designed specifically for your home and, as a minimum, we suggest a frame that’s 75x75mm cut. The ability to select the method you want your door to be hang or even having options for your door, such as double or glazed doors, is always an option.


A roof that is deteriorating is among the first indications of a deficient shed, so select a sturdy construction. We recommend 19x125mm tongue and groove board mounted on the frame 38 x 75mm. It should be covered by heavy-duty felt like 35kg roofing felt that is mineralised. Another option for roofing include cedar shingles and roofing tiles that are both attractive and capable of enhancing the durability of your roof. A green or sedum roof can be beautiful and, of course, promotes the environment and natural climate control for your shed.


The finish of the paint is among the most visible and important elements of the exterior of your shed. You should select an appropriate color that matches the design that you want to create in your yard. A high-quality paint finish significantly cuts down on the amount of maintenance required. Check you have a garden shed that is treated with a preservative in order to protect against woodworm and fungi. We provide a range of paint options, like Farrow & Ball, Sikkens and our exterior paint System that provide superior protection from the elements.


Garden Sheds are frequently used to store things that are valuable. So, security must always be an issue. Security is a top priority. Security Pack addresses this need by providing bar security, high-quality anti-pick lock, as well as screws that cannot be returned on the door hinges.

We hope that we’ve clarified the essential factors to think about when buying an outdoor shed.
