Hi, I'm Robin Antill, founder of 1st Choice Leisure Buildings, and I use my expertise gained over 39 years in the garden buildings industry to understand that each customer is different. With my manufacturing, retailing and customer service experience my articles help people choose their ideal shed, garden workshop, summerhouse, log cabin or garden office needs to suit their requirement and that is key to satisfaction. And what do I do when I'm not writing? You may find me following Grimsby Town Football Club or riding roller coasters - so plenty of 'ups and downs' in my life.

Do garden sheds come with glass?

1/ Check to see what is used for the windows. Is it glass, which does not rattle, or styrene or perspex? If it is perspex or styrene then this is susceptible to scratches and will lose its clarity within a few short years. Is it toughened glass for safety?

How thick are the windows?

2/ Glass is normally at least 3mm thick. On many of the cheap sheds available they use perspex or styrene, which normally is (1.5m) the thickness of glass. This means that as it is so thin it moves when the wind blows it. It can also be noisy. It is used is because it is cheaper than glass

How many windows open and do they have ledges?

3/ Do any windows open as standard, or if there an option to have an opening window, which would allow air to circulate in your garden shed. Do the windows have window ledges and are they sealed properly?

All our Garden Sheds Are -

All our garden sheds, with the exception of children's playhouses, have proper glass windows which are 3mm thick (minimum). These remains clear and do not rattle when the wind blows. On the Diamond and Platinum garden buildings they have toughened glass as standard - no extra charge - how good is that? We can also offer Toughened, Laminated or Wired glass if you would like safety glass. Most of our buildings have opening windows as standard, or as an option. Also, on most of our garden buildings direct from us, they have proper window ledges and sealed.
