What you should know about Plastic Garden Sheds

Plastic garden sheds

Plastic garden sheds offer distinct advantages over timber and metal sheds that could make them the perfect choice for gardeners looking for somewhere to potter and small businesses investing in outdoor industrial buildings.

Why should I consider plastic garden sheds?

When it comes to choosing garden sheds, there are many different things that buyers should consider and, for some, 1st Choice Leisure Buildings' range of Duramax plastic sheds could be the best bet. These inexpensive sheds are ideal for all weather types and are also fire retardant. They do not need to be painted and are easy to assemble. With a pledge from 1st Choice that its plastic garden sheds are built to last and a ten-year warrantee to back up that claim, buyers can rest assured that they will not be let down by a plastic shed.

What are the different types of uPVC sheds available?

All of 1st Choice's plastic sheds are made from Vinyl uPVC, meaning that they are both rust and rot proof. The Side Mate garden shed was designed to sit alongside a house or fence, providing an elegant, low-maintenance storage solution for those looking at cheap sheds. Slightly more substantial is the Duramax Woodbridge uPVC Plastic Apex Garden Shed, which comes in sizes 10ft by 8ft, 10ft by 10ft or 10ft by 13ft. With double doors on the front, the beige-coloured garden shed also boasts easy access no matter how many bikes, lawnmowers and gardening implements may be stacked up inside.

Couple plastic sheds with eco-friendly garden bases.

For those who want to set their plastic shed up with as little difficulty as possible, one of 1st Choice's garden bases could be just the ticket. An interlocking base system made from recycled lightweight and durable plastic panels, these ProBases provide a solid, level plain on which garden sheds and other outdoor buildings can be pitched. That they do so without the cost and permanency of concrete while offering more durability than timber bearers makes them even more of an ideal solution. However, you do need to have a floor with your plastic shed to use Ecobases.

What about plastic workshops and garages?

As well as garden sheds, garages and workshops are also available in Duramax uPVC from 1st Choice offering the same benefits of value, versatility and durability. Those considering plastic garages may wish to take a close look at the Duramax uPVC Plastic Apex Garage Workshop, which comes with entry and exit ramps, wide double doors and an additional side access door. It is available in sizes of up to 10ft by 23ft and comes with a foundation kit included.

The roof on garden sheds and summerhouses is a crucial part of your new garden shed so it is important that the right materials are used in its construction. The main purpose of the roof is to protect your valuables from rain and snow thus keeping them dry. Besides this is helps to ventilate the shed and aids the long life of your building.

There are several designs for a shed roof such as an apex roof, sometimes referred to as a gable roof which looks like an upside down 'V'. This design is very popular in Britain as it is quite attractive when situated in your garden. The basic design consists of two roof sections meeting in the middle of the shed or summerhouse. This roof can slope in either direction, certainly the better garden shed manufacturers would be able to offer this. The pitch, or angle on the apex shed roof tends to be in the region of at least 15 degrees up to about 25 or 30 degrees. This allows water to flow easily off the roof and away - Continue reading -- Delivery of metal sheds and steel buildings throughout the UK, England, Wales, Scotland

Customer Comment:

Good service at point of sale - however the salesperson didn't understand what was needed when a shed has to be erected between two other buildings. The consequence was that the shed was the wrong size for the team tried to erect it. I then had to wait several weeks for it to be remade.
