What is a Garden Shed?

The garden shed is designed to be a utility building, and is specifically used as a storage facility. It is a stand alone building, that needs to be robust and made from good quality materials. This is essential if you want it to withstand the British weather and last a long time. That said garden sheds are have a much lighter construction than garden offices as they don’t include insulation or internal lining.

Predominantly used for storing lawnmowers, bikes and tools the shed is also a great place to keep garden furniture.

Garden Shed Construction

Sheds will require regular maintenance unless you invest in one with tanalised cladding. Cheap buildings are constructed with white wood that is not treated or painted, whilst the better quality sheds are built using redwood that has been treated with a preservative.

White wood is usually from the Baltic forests and is fast grown with very little strength or quality. Redwood by contrast is grown much slower from Scandinavian forests that are sustainably managed. This is also kiln dried and graded by the level of splits and knots that are prevalent. Poor quality redwood is predominantly used for packaging, however it is still superior to white wood that is used for the cheaper end of the shed market.

Apex Sheds

The most common style of shed is the Apex Shed which has a dual pitched roof.

This type of shed provides more headroom in the middle, but less height on the sides.

It looks most like a traditional house, and is popular for those looking for a traditional looking garden shed.

Pent Sheds

A garden shed with the roof sloping from front to back is known as a pent shed.

This is becoming more popular in the modern age as it looks more up to date with current architecture.

These sheds are increasingly preferred with brand new houses, or dwellings that have been recently modified.

Heavy Duty Sheds

If a garden shed doesn’t cut the mustard then you need HEAVY DUTY

These buildings are built using superior framing with a heavy duty floor, and over engineered roof trusses.

The 5″ purlins are more in keeping with a wooden garage structure, and the walls include a triple layered outer skin.

Feather Edge cladding will give you the ultimate if you want a HEAVY DUTY SHED
