Buying Garden Sheds and Storage Buildings for Your Garden

It appears very straight forward to buying a garden shed - just click on the 'internet' find the size shed you want and then look for the best price. Easy YES? Well not really as there is such array of garden sheds available from the 'cheap and nasty' right up to ones which would feel at home at Hampton Court Palace. So you need to do your home work to ensure you buy the right shed for YOUR needs.

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 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 day) and not rely on emails (as good as they are) which most web firms expect you to do.

1st Choice Leisure Buildings 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 Garden 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 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.

Visit 1st Choice Leisure Buildings show garden buildings display area near Woking in Surrey which has about 60 buildings on display. Only about 5 miles from the M25. You will be glad you did.

Are You Special or Are You Happy To Settle for What's Available?

There are certain advantages for standard sizes or designs as these can help keep the costs down a little however wouldn't it to 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?

1st Choice Leisure Buildings 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.

1st Choice Garden 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.

1st Choice Leisure Buildings do not use chipboard, OSB board, Sterling board on any of their garden sheds. On the Diamond Heavy Duty Workshops they use a special water resistant heavy duty boarding on their floor.

Are All Garden Building Panele Fully Pre Made?

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.

All 1st Choice Leisure 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.

Metal sheds, steel buildings, storage boxes, caravan tidies and galvanised bike storage How To Guide:- Fixing and Types of Shed Summerhouses Windows

The windows on sheds and summer houses rely on the windows to let light in so are crucial to your enjoyment of your new garden building. The way these windows are fixed to the building is also crucial so you need to be aware of the method used. The reason for this is so that you don't end up with leaking windows which can be a nuisance.

There are various ways as to how the windows are secured into place. You will often find that they are 'dry fixed' using timber beading. This is a very good way of keeping your shed or summerhouse dry provided the beading is pushed up tight against the glass. Some building only use small nails or brads to secure the glass in place and this can sometimes leak. Another option is with a mastic or sealant around the outside edge of the glass and the shed wall or even with sealant behind the glass.

When I had my garden shed company, which I started in 1979, we use to use the dry fixing method but this was supplemented with a window ledge with a recess cut for the glass to sit into. The beadings were fixed from inside the shed or summerhouse and pressed tight against the glass. This was also more secure as the beading could not be removed from outside - Continue reading -- Delivery of metal sheds and steel buildings throughout the UK, England, Wales, Scotland
