Welcome to the World of Shedology.

To be sure that you consider all you need to know when you’re choosing a garden shed, we’ve thought about everything you could ever want!

We have compiled just a few key features to help you make the right decision when buying .

Floor &
Bearers.

Floor – All of our wooden buildings feature an 12mm tongue and groove floor, offering a sturdy foundation for years.

Bearers – Our wooden floor bearers run underneath the shed floor to provide extra support, as well as raising it off the ground to increase airflow.

Framing &
Cladding.

Framing – Our 44x28mm framing features four rounded edges to reduce the risk of splinters. We also fit as standard corner panel bracing to strengthen the structure.

Cladding – We only use one type of cladding, 12mm tongue and groove and shiplap clad that’s FSC certified.

Windows &
Doors.

Windows – All of our windows are pre- glazed with toughened glass, beaded and fitting onto a plastic window sill to prevent water ingress.

Doors – Our doors have ‘Z’ Shaped framing internally – this method of framing adds structural support, preventing sagging. Doors are cladded with a 12mm tongue and groove board that runs vertical and secured with a key lockable lock.

Roof Materials &
Roof Covering.

Roof Material – All of our roofs are made with 12mm tongue & groove boarding that adds additional strength.

Roof Covering – We supply extra high grade polyester mineral roofing felt as standard with all of our wooden buildings, protect against weather for years.

Cover Trims &
Facia Boards.

Cover Trims – Our buildings are supplied with cover trims, these are used when you  join two panels together – This improves appearance and prevents water ingress.

Fascia Boards– Finish with style, that’s why we include fascia boards to sandwich the felt between the building – Finials are supplied to cover the join and add a decorative finish.

Wood Preserver &
Colour.

Wood Preserver – We dip treat every component meaning the timber has been submerged with a basecoat treatment, this protects the wood from rot.

Colour – We only use golden oak, this is a light and natural colour that can be painted over with a quality coating of your choice.
