Top 10 Tips for Buying A Shed

When you are buying the Garden Building, we recommend that you select the highest quality you can manage to afford. It’s usually an error to go for a lower-cost option in the event that you have to replace it before the deadline or pay a significant amount to maintain its maintenance. We are committed to providing excellent value by using only the highest high-end materials, which makes your garden construction a durable life-long investment.

Here are the top 10 things to think about before making a purchase:

Delivery & Installation

Does delivery come in the price? Do you need to build the foundation and then building a shed which is supplied in kit form? Each of our buildings is delivered and set up at no cost within our complete end all-to-end service. Our skilled installers will ensure you have your structure in good condition before leaving your home, so that you can relax and relax while we take care of all the work.

Reputation of the Company

If you are buying what could be essentially part of the house You must ensure that the seller is trustworthy. Are they skilled in custom construction? Are they open to your opinions and ideas? A reputable company will have a long tradition of providing high-quality gardens as well as an entire team of helpful skilled, trustworthy and knowledgeable experts.

Quality Construction

A strong, durable timber is vital to the endurance and durability of your structure. A lot of garden sheds Leigh are built with the larchlap the cladding. It can provide people with an excellent value for money however, as a cheap option is unlikely to last for more than just a few years. Find a shed made of redwood pine, rather than whitewood spruce because it is less prone to knots slipping out. We make use of sustainable FSC(r) certified lumber and we are aware of 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 an option for smaller structures.

A well-constructed floor

To ensure a durable and strong flooring, we suggest 19x125mm, the tongue-and-groove floorboards placed on 38 x75 mm planarised floor joists tanalised at a minimum of 350mm (from the center of floor joists) away. Man-made flooring used in inferior sheds bow, bend and eventually begin to rot. We also offer our customers with the possibility to have their floor heated particularly if they plan to spend much time working in their garden.


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 in a safe manner, which is a great benefit for families with children. Also, consider whether you’d like to open the windows particularly during the summer months.


Doors made of joinery are more durable and designed specifically for your home and, as a minimum, we suggest a minimum that’s 75x75mm cut. You can choose the method you want your door to be hung or even having options for your door, like a double or glazed doors, is always an option.


A roof that is deteriorating is one of the primary indications of a deficient shed, therefore you must select a sturdy construction. We recommend 19x125mm tongue and groove board mounted on frames of 38x75mm. It should be covered by the most durable 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 is also attractive and, of course, promotes the natural environment and climate control for your shed.


The finish of the paint is among the most prominent and thus important elements of the exterior of your shed. Be sure to choose an appropriate color that matches the aesthetics that you want to create in your yard. A higher quality finish dramatically minimizes the need to maintain. Check you have a garden shed that is coated with a preservative to protect against woodworm and fungi. We have a variety of paint choices such as Farrow & Ball, Sikkens and our exterior paint System that offer protection from the elements.


Garden Sheds are commonly used to store things which are worth. So, security must be the primary concern. The Security Pack addresses this need by providing bar security, high-quality anti-pick lock, as well as screws that cannot be returned around door hinges.

Hope we’ve explained the essential aspects to consider when buying the garden shed.
