Diamond 'Solar Potting' Sheds

These Solar Potting Garden Sheds are an Investment

The Diamond Solar Potting shed is a great addition for your garden and can be used for growing produce for using in your home. It can also be used for planting seeds so that you can give those plants an early start when you plant them out in your garden. With a choice of apex (gable) or pent (mono-pitch or flat roof) there should be a style which appeals to you. And on the apex potting sheds you can even have a half glass roof which makes this a stunning building. Take a look at one at the 1st Choice Garden Shed display area near Guildford and make your own mind up.

Why Buy a Garden Shed for Your Home?

The humble garden shed is a vital extra for most homes as it provides extra storage out side your home but close enough to access when ever you want. The extra shed these garden sheds bring enables you to utilise your internal space inside your home for more leisurely pursuits - always a bonus in our modern homes where space is at a premium. Always try to buy the largest garden shed you can afford to ensure the greatest amount of flexibility for storage and for working in. This enable all your clutter to be stored away 'just in case'.

Be Very Careful When Buying a Garden Shed

There is also a worry when buying a garden shed as to whether you will make the right choice. You will find that garden sheds come in a wide variety of price ranges and sizes so how do you choose. It might seem that the cheapest shed you can buy will be the best option but like many things in life it's not that simple. Just the difference in the quality of wood can make a large difference to how long your new shed will last - so tread carefully. There are many garden shed companies out there to choose from so how do you decide who to use. A good idea is to look at previous customers feedback and you can see 1st Choice Garden Sheds feedback on the Feefo independent site which should give you a good idea about them and their products which are all made from sustainable timber sources.

Always Check What Quality and Type of Materials are Being Used in Your New Garden Shed

You may find that some garden sheds are cheaper than others and there is a reason for this - and this comes down to the quality of materials used. These Diamond Woodford transverse apex garden shed are made from slow growing redwood deal rather than the cheap fast growing and less resilient white wood used on most 'cheap' sheds. This costs a little more but is worth every penny. Always insist of proper T&G timber as this will ensure the best resistance to our British weather and protecting your valuable. The thickness of the framing is also important as some cheap garden sheds will have framework not much larger than 1in x 1in (25mm x 25mm) -crazy!! Ideally look for 2in x 2in (nominal size) vertical framing for the strongest shed. Take a look on this page for advice on what to look out for - you won't regret it. And you will nearly always find that the cheap shed is not the best value.

Beware of Cheap Chipboard, OSB Board or other Cheap Man Made Boards

Again to try to make a cheap shed many companies use materials such as chipboard, OSB board, wafer board or Sterling board. All of these are totally unsuitable for using on a garden shed meant to last. As soon as these boards get wet they will start to disintegrate and this puts your valuables at risk - don't take this chance. You also need to look out for some cheap garden shed companies describing their floors and roof as being made from 'sheet materials. This is meant to hide the facts that they are using chipboard type materials and could be seem as underhand. Caber board is an exception to this as this is designed specifically for wet environments such as a kitchen or bathroom in a brand new house. This is standard on the Barnwell Heavy Duty Workshops and on all garden sheds 8ft x 8ft and over. Great choice.

Don't Struggle To Build Your New Garden Shed - Let Us Do It

Garden sheds by their very nature are heavy - well certainly well made quality ones - so it can be hard work to build them. All the Diamond Solar Potting garden sheds include free assembly to make life easier for you. This also ensures it has been built correctly and that the building won't have any problems such as leaking. The cheap garden shed companies often claim it's a doddle to build a garden shed and this is often because they don't offer a garden shed assembly service or by doing so make their garden sheds a lot more expensive. Why take the chance - let someone else take the strain and you put your feet up. You back will thank you for it.

Always Visit a Garden Shed Display Site Where Ever Possible

You will find that many internet companies selling garden sheds don't have a display site where you can view and examine their sheds before buying. You are expected to buy from a flashy web site or sometimes from a colour leaflet - not really ideal - and you are in their hands until after your new garden shed appears in your garden. Hopefully it will meet your expectations but you can never be sure. 1st Choice has a garden shed display area between Woking and Guildford in Surrey where are over 40 buildings of all shapes and sizes to see. This allows you to see examples of garden sheds giving you a much better idea of the likely quality. And, even if you are unable to visit, the fact there is a garden shed display area means that the company in question has the confidence for the public to view beforehand. Peace of mind as standard - what a nice option.

Metal sheds, steel buildings, storage boxes, caravan tidies and galvanised bike storage How To Choose A Garden Shed Door

It may seem a strange subject how to choose a garden shed door but this humble object is vital to your new shed or garden building. If you think about it the shed door is the only part of your garden building which is designed to move, there may be many parts on cheap sheds that move as well but they are not meant to, and so must be made to resist these moving forces for years on end.

In the most basic form the shed door is planks of wood nailed onto a frame. Hinges are attached and then the door is hung on your shed or garden building however you will find the weight of the planks of wood pulling downwards by gravity. This is why it is crucial that the frame has proper bracing designed into it to stop this happening.

There should be a minimum of three ledges, timber batons which are horizontal, and in between them there should be two diagonal braces. The braces help to carry the load of the shed door from the outside of the shed door to the side where the hinges are. - Continue reading -- Delivery of metal sheds and steel buildings throughout the UK, England, Wales, Scotland
