1st Choice Leisure Buildings

- ONLY Sell Sheds Made to Very High Standards

Buy From An Established Business

By choosing to buy from an established business you can be sure that they have a great deal of expertise in the garden buildings industry. Also they have become established by selling the right buildings at the right price and, most importantly, have been listening to their customers. By choosing a business which actually have a fixed 'brick and mortar' address' you can be sure there is somewhere to contact them if you need to.

With businesses ONLY on the 'web' they can be 'here and gone tomorrow' (as they say in Winds in the Willows). With a business with a fixed address you will also find you can ACTUALLY talk to someone in the flesh if you choose (as it used to be in the olden days) and not rely on emails (as good as they are) which most web firms expect you to do. Just by typing in 'sheds to buy near me' or 'heavy duty garden sheds to buy near me' or 'garden shed suppliers' will find a local business.

1st Choice Leisure Buildings, a Family Business

- was established in 1979 when they started making sheds. They also have a physical office AND Show site so you can talk to them and view examples of their buildings.

Always View Buildings for Sale Before Buying

The 'web' is a wonderful thing but even with the flashiest of web pages and glossy brochure you can never get a REAL feel for what you are buying. For many items this not a problem but with YOUR new garden shed or building it's important to know that what you getting will meet your expectations. By actually viewing your proposed building you can be sure of the quality and how well constructed it is, you can see how tall it is so you won't bang your head and are the doors and windows made from stern stuff.

This will help you to distinguish from the 'cheap and nasty' sheds made 'down to a price' and which are readily available on the web and the well made, well constructed buildings which are designed to last a long time. The purely 'online' retailers claim that it's good to buy online as you can save money BUT how can you know that you won't end up with that 'cheap and nasty' building. By viewing beforehand you can save yourself from the potential heartache and stress. Always remember that the cheapest price is not always the best.

Do You Want a 'Run of the Mill' Shed or Are Your Special?

There are certain advantages for standard sizes or designs as these can help keep the costs down a little however wouldn't it be good to buy a building to suit YOU and YOUR garden. By doing this you can utilise your garden building to have the best use and to fit in the space that you have got. By talking to a company which can make a garden building in the size and design for you then this is what can happen. It may be a little dearer but this small extra cost can be the difference between 'making do' or being 100% satisfied. Surely that's got to be worth it?

Any Size From 1st Choice Leisure Buildings

- We can make nearly all their garden buildings in 'more or less' and size or design to suit you. Special size not normally a problem. moving doors & windows - not a problem.

Ensure the Timber Used is the Best for YOUR New Building

Again a great deal of money can be saved by selecting cheaper timber such as whitewood which, to a certain degree, is OK'ish for a basic garden shed. It's far better to insist on a redwood deal timber building as this grows far slower than whitewood so the grain is more tightly compacted ensuring a longer life. A little more expensive but a better long term prospect. Whitewood because it grows quickly can be subject to lots of little knots dropping out.

Redwood Timber From 1st Choice Garden Buildings

- Most of our buildings are made predominately with redwood deal timber for longer life.

Beware of Chipboard, Sterling Board, OSB Boards Being Used

You will find that most of the 'cheap sheds' will use chipboard, OSB board or Sterling board on the floors and roofs to save money. In an ideal scenario this would be fine but as soon as any damp gets into these boards (and being outside is nearly unavoidable) they will start to swell and then disintegrate meaning the end of your shiny new shed. These shed companies know this so they try to hide the fact by saying their floors and roofs are made from 'Sheet Materials'. They avoid using the words 'chipboard, osb board etc' as they know there could be problems in the near future.

Solid Timber From 1st Choice Leisure Buildings

- They do NOT use chipboard, OSB board, Sterling board on any of their wooden sheds. On the Diamond Heavy Duty Workshops they use a special water resistant heavy duty boarding on their floor.

Is There A Garden Shed Installation Service?

Garden buildings by their very nature are large and heavy so building them can be a challenge. This may be fine for some people who like a challenge but a company offering sheds delivered and installed service will always be a better option. Not only does it save you a lot of hassle you can be sure it has been assembled correctly.

Installation Options

- 1st Choice Leisure Buildings offer a garden shed delivery and assembly service (and mostly free of charge) to save you time and effort. Not just dumped in your garden.

Are All Panels Fully Pre Made For You?

Surprisingly many of the cheap sheds, besides being made of chipboard etc, are delivered in pieces where you have to build some of the panels yourself. Ludicrous! If you are buying a cheap shed always double check what you are getting. Your new buildings are unlikely to be ready made sheds leaving you with loads to do.

Fully Assembled Buildings

- All our Timber Buildings are delivered in complete sections (and mostly assembled free of charge) to save you time and effort. Not just dumped in your garden.
