When Buying a Garden Shed be Careful of What You are Buying

When buying a garden shed always do your homework as there can be a large range of sheds to choose from with a large difference in prices. But like most things price is not always the best guide to the best value. A garden shed is exposed to all the British weather can throw at it so it needs to be designed to last. This means using the best timber for the job. Also as important is the service offered by the shed company in question and how do you find this out? By looking at previous customers feedback which will let you know about the products and the company. Take a look on this independent web site and this will give you an idea as the products and service offered by 1st Choice Leisure Buildings

Ensure You Check the Type of Timber Being Used in Your Choice of Garden Sheds

There are many prices available for garden sheds from the ridiculously cheap to the obscenely expensive so how do you choose. At the cheap end there is a good reason why they are cheap and that is because of the timber used and the production methods. To ensure the best value 1st Choice Leisure Buildings narrow garden sheds are made using the slower growing redwood deal and not the cheaper whitewood. Whitewood is normally used on cheap sheds and can do a job to a certain degree. If you only want a shed for a few years then worth considering. But redwood is the best option in most cases - it might be a little more than whitewood but it's worth every penny. Also look out for proper T&G boarding throughout (wall, floor and roof) as this ensures the best protection against the weather - be it rain, snow or sun. Also check out the thickness of the framing as some cheap shed use timber which is only 1in x 1in (25mm x 25mm) which is bonkers.

Watch Out For Cheap Chipboard, OSB Board and Other Cheap Boards

You will find that many cheap shed companies try to cut costs by using chipboard, OSB Board, Wafer Board and Sterling Board which is OK to a certain degree but as soon as it gets wet it falls apart exposing your valuables to the weather. Which is not what you want! You can even find some of these cheap garden shed companies advertising their floor and roofs as being made from 'sheet materials' as if that is a good thing. All they are doing is hiding the fact they are using this 'cheap and nasty' boards on your new garden shed - just ask them a direct question. You choice of garden shed should be designed to last a very long time and this is why these 'Streamline' narrow sheds are only made using solid 'proper' T& timber boards. Best to do it right 1st time so select 1st Choice. 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.

Take the Hard Work Out of Building Your New Shed We Will Do It

Sheds in general are quite bulky items and can be difficult to move into place. The good quality sheds are very heavy as well so it's makes sense to let the experts build it for you. This gives you the peace of mind that's been erected and felted correctly ensuring the very best protection for your valuable. These Diamond 'Streamline' narrow sheds come with free installation as standard so you've no need to worry about assembling them wrongly. The cheap shed companies claims it's easy to build their sheds mainly because they don't offer that service or they would have to put their prices up to cover that cost be sub-contractors. Also the cheap sheds are often made in many smaller sections meaning there are more potential gaps for the weather to get into. Give you back a rest and let 1st Choice take the pain.

Where Ever Possible Try To View Your New Shed Beforehand

Many internet garden shed companies don't have a display site claiming they can cut costs by doing so. To a certain degree this is true but the fact is that you can never know what the quality of the shed will be before it turns up. It doesn't matter our flashy the web site is or how attractive a leaflet is there is no way to know if the retailer won't show his products to the public beforehand. 1st Choice, whose background is in manufacturing garden sheds and was the 1st UK shed company to be on the web (back in 1996) realised this so have a garden shed display site between Woking and Guildford in Surrey.

Metal sheds, steel buildings, storage boxes, caravan tidies and galvanised bike storage How To Ensure Shed or Summer House Door is Right for You

The garden shed or summer house door needs to be designed to work for a very long time so it is important it is made correctly. You will find decent shed and summer house manufacturers take their responsibilities seriously and will ensure they will stand the test of time.

As well as the importance of having ledges AND braces on the garden shed door it is important to have THREE hinges as this will help to transmit the weight of the shed door across and onto the door frame. If there is only two then the door may bulge slightly in the middle. With a joinery made door then only two hinges are required as the weight of the shed door is supported by the jointed frame.

There are various ways for the garden shed door to be kept closed. The very minimum you want is to have a pad bolt with a turn buckle top and bottom on your door. The pad bolt is a sliding bolt and when closed you can put your padlock onto it to protect your valuables. The turn buckle is simply a flat piece of metal with a hole in the middle. This is screwed onto the garden shed frame and when turned will hold the shed door tightly into position. This will help to stop any movement on the door when there are large changes in weather conditions through the year. - Continue reading -- Delivery of metal sheds and steel buildings throughout the UK, England, Wales, Scotland
