Feedback: helpful and friendly service. The shed itself was average quality but the supplied lock was inferior and the knob fell off on the second day due too the fact that there was little to no thread on the spindle.
Response: Thanks for your valuable feedback. I'm pleased we were friendly and gave you helpful advice. I'm not so happy you had a problem with the door knob. This has now been rectified with an improved fitting so should not be a problem moving forward. Thanks for letting me know. I hope you will enjoy using your new shed in years to come. Regards Robin
With over thirty years experience in the garden & leisure building industry we can easily spot the difference between a good quality building and an exceptional one and we positively refuse to lower our standards. You can find cheaper buildings but you won't find better for delivery to Croydon. All of our partners have been carefully chosen to offer the finest selection of buildings, with the best after-sales service, at the very best prices.
We believe that it is vital that you are given the opportunity to inspect a building before parting with your so we have established an easily-accessible display site near Guildford in Surrey which is not too far away where you can come and view eighty buildings from all of our main ranges of buildings. You can browse at your leisure without worrying about any high pressure salesmen pouncing on you (not that we would employ that type in any case!). If you need any help then we are there to advise.
The above map will give you directions form Croydon to our display site at Sutton Green where you can our range of timber workshops, concrete garages, summerhouses, log cabins and garden sheds.
Our full range of timber (not log cabins) and concrete buildings will be installed free of charge at the time of delivery providing there is a suitable base. And if there isn't, don't worry, we can build that for you too for a small extra charge. Optional fitting service for log cabins.
Experts in garden sheds & buildings in timber, metal, plastic & concrete. And so much more so take a small drive and come and see us.
With the energy companies making cuts in our energy bills by about 5%, not long after they have gone up 15-20%, and with them making a big deal of how wonderful they are maybe it's time we took steps to produce our own energy or at the very least subsidise our energy needs.
There are many way where green energy can be generated and the more common ones are solar panels which can be fitted on the house roof or even on a garden shed roof if it faces south. However, if you were going to put it on a shed you would need to ensure that the shed roof is strong enough to take the weight. Until recently there were large rebates for generating green electricity but these schemes have been curtailed so the large benefits which were available have now gone which is a shame.
If you still wish to put solar panels on the garden shed roof then there are two types to consider which are crystalline and amorphous. Amorphous solar panels are receptive to low light and will perform better than crystalline during the winter. These types of solar panel can be light but we only generate a small amount of electric although this may be enough for use in the garden shed. Another option for the garden are LED lights which can be solar panel generated.
Up in Scotland a village primary school has equipped a metal bike shed with solar panels to generate electric and the project will supply electric to the school. The village school in Gleneig, Wester Ross will enjoy this green renewable energy from this solar panel shed scheme and which has cost £20,000. This metal shed is quite substantial to take the solar panels and half of the cost was paid for by the Scottish government. This scheme is just one of 32 solar power schemes being delivered across Scotland at a cost of £450,000 in total.
The chairman of Highland Council's climate change working group, Michael Foxley, said that he was sure that the new solar powered shed will prove to be a big success with the young cyclists and should pay a big part in reducing the amount of electricity being consumed. Another method of making sheds more environmentally friendly is to give them a 'living roof' as this will make them warmer inside during the winter and cooler during the winter. However, it's important to realise that not all garden sheds are strong enough to take the weight and may need extra shed roof supports.
