You Should Buy This Superb Shed Because of the Following Criteria.

Why Buy The Woodgate 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'.

Give a Lots of Thought Before Buying Garden Storage

The sheer number of garden shed companies is amazing - all offering different prices and specifications. So how do you choose? It's often an easy route to go for the cheapest but this is often made from 'cheap' materials which won't last. This means you need to ask lots of questions before deciding to ensure you get the right garden shed for you. You need to ask questions such as how thick is the timber, what grade of timber is used, is sheet material - such as chipboard or OSB board, used, is the shed erected free etc. 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.

Be Very Careful When Buying a Wooden 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 Building

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 Woodgate 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.

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 Unit - 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 Woodgate transverse apex garden shed 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 Buildings Display Site Where Ever Possible

You will find that many internet companies who will sell you a new wooden garden shed but 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 expectation 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 your proposed wooden garden shed 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.

How To Choose the Roof Style on your New Garden Shed


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 --

This is a great product. It looks good and is very well constructed. The men who delivered and erected the shed worked quickly and efficiently and did a really good job all round.
  • DIAM-WF-GEO8-8 - Very helpful people. Good product - erected in awful weather but speedily and efficiently done. 1 call-back only to sort out a minor leak, hardly surprising with the weather at the time. All staff very helpful and efficient
  • DIAM-WF-GEO8-8 - Excellent
  • DIAM-WF-GEO-9-4 - Very friendly and good service from all concerned. The shed is very good value - However Unfortunately the gap between the meeting of the two doors is quite wide and the lock only just goes in the keep. I am worried that if the door shrinks it will not fit or that the security is not what it should be.
  • DIAM-WF-GEO9-6 - This is the second time I've used 1st Choice leisure buildings. From start to finish they have proved to be an excellent company and I would fully recommend their service and product. This is a slightly smaller repeat of the shed I had in my previous house. Unimaginative?? Absolutely not.This shed is now painted and looks like a summer house but at a much cheaper price. The quality of the finish is far superior to sheds viewed elsewhere. It's worth payng for the wrought iron fittings if the shed is in close view.
  • DIAM-WF-GEO9-7 - First shed delivered manufactured incorrectly and workmen damaged it while trying to put it up anyway had to be sent back - replacement made to correct specification however and company made small refund. Product is really good quality and we are very happy with it - its a pity about the trouble we had with the first shed.
