Shed buying guide and some information to help you choose a garden shed.
If you need more assistance, please phone one of our shed experts for advice it’s free.

Choose a shed size:

Where space is limited measure the area to give us the exact measurements as this will ensure the shed will fit into any confined areas.

Type of shed and door options:

Choose a shed with a pent or an apex roof.
A pent shed will give you more door positions.
Window options:
Full-size windows 24″ x 18″, Security windows 24″ x 9″, No windows.
Hinge the shed door on the left or the right.
Shed bearers:
Shed bearers are available from us and we recommended these are used


If you think access may be a problem to your road, driveway, or garden. Check for any height restrictions. Please call and discuss this with our Customer Service Team 01744 730004.

After Ordering:

Every customer will have their garden shed delivered, and assembled free.
Prior to delivery an external base coat is applied to the shed
Your shed will require painting with a suitable topcoat within four weeks.
Given on completion are free maintenance instructions to care for a timber shed.
Preservatives suitable for timber sheds:
Our recommended product is timber decking oil (not stain) or Osmo country colours


Cladding including the roof and floor:
Tongue & groove boards are widely known to be the best material to use for shed construction.
Shed cladding: Tongue & groove boards
Roof: Tongue & groove boards
Floor: Tongue & groove boards
Frame: We use 34mm x 34mm framing, which is more than adequate for small, medium sheds. Large sheds will have extra frame and a roof truss installed as standard with a gable end span of 8ft or more.


As mentioned, a base coat will be applied free
Pressure-treated sheds will require another coat of timber treatment to seal the cladding.
Please read the information leaflet for all other sheds.
Another coat of timber treatment will be required to fully protect any shed
