Platinum Modern Sun Store Potting Sheds for Your Garden

By utilising your garden and with the addition of this Sun Store potting shed you will be able to enjoy delicious fresh produce at your table allowing you to enjoy a little of the 'Good Life'. However before taking the plunge you need to do a little homework to ensure you won't be disappointed. It's natural to be attracted to cheap prices but there is always a reason an item is cheap. And this mainly stems from the quality of materials used and the care taken in construction. Often using cheap potentially dangerous glass, cheap inferior whitewood and OSB floor and roofs. By buying 'cheap' you can often end up regretting it afterwards.

This modern Sun Store Potting Shed is based on the Platinum Supreme workshops following the same principles. The attention to detail is key to these buildings from the quality of timber used, the brass hinges & 5 lever mortice lock on the stable door, the high grade polyester roofing felt as well as the quality of construction. This includes diagonal bracing in the corners and the screwed joints throughout. A super bench and opening window is also standard. Add in the pressure treating of the floor, cladding and framing and you have a potting shed which is going to last and will be the very best for your garden.

Extra Thick Floor as Standard & Choice of claddings

You can choose from thick 15mm (finished thickness) shiplap or 19mm (finished thickness) loglap redwood T&G cladding for your SunStore potting shed. 19mm (15mm finish) timber is used on the extra strong floor and the roof is 16mm (12mm finish) roof covered with a heavy duty polyester felt. There is an option to upgrade to Onduline if you wish. Solid long lasting redwood timber is standard and not the cheap inferior whitewood commonly used on most potting sheds. The timber used for the cladding, framing and floor is also pressure treated with a design life of 15 years against rotting.

Crucially on a building with a large expanse of glass toughened glass is used as standard and provides great safety in the garden. A prime consideration if children are playing in there. The more commonly used horticultural glass is potentially very dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. Some suppliers use plastic or perspex but this scratches and is noisy when it's windy. Add in the screwed diagonal bracing and the attention to detail is obvious.

Bespoke Sun Store Potting Sheds To Suit

Where as there is a standard range of sizes available and this will suit most people it may be that you would like something a little different or in a different size. This is often a possibility so just give us a call and ask the question. Where ever possible we will do what we can to meet your needs. Don't settle for second best when there may be an option>

At the moment we don't have the Sun Store on display but you can examples of the Platinum range of buildings near Guildford which has a largish display of buildings. This should give you a good idea of the method of construction and the attention to detail which you can never get from a brochure or computer screen.

You can also be sure that the building is erected correctly and this will ensure longevity for your new Sun Store. How good is that?

By having your new potting shed built for you you can relax knowing there should be no problems in the coming years when 'Mother Nature' throws all it can at it. If you do want to assemble your own potting shed then we can offer a discount of the standard retail price.

Always Buy From a Reputable Manufacturer

As in all businesses there are 'bad apples' so you need to be a little careful before shelling out your hard earned money. However there is far more 'good apples' available to choose from. So how do you choose? A good indicator is how long they have been trading and what customer feedback they have received during that time. This can help you decide.

Garden Buildings Buying Advice

How To Decide What to Treat Your Garden Sheds With


After you have decided on your new garden shed, summer house, workshop or log cabin you need to consider how you are going to look after it. These garden sheds and buildings are an investment and will enable you to enjoy your garden more than ever and with a little bit of regular care will last for many years.

There are various types of garden shed treatments and you will find that most sheds will be treated with a water based coat of treatment. This can be seen as being a primer and it is recommended that you re-treat your new shed or garden building within a few days after being delivered. The second coat can be seen as an undercoat to your shed and when you put your next coat on the shed will be the top coat and this will give long lasting protection. Continue reading --

  • DIAMOND5-4 - Excellent service. No fuss and everything done on time. Perfect.
  • DIAMOND6-4 - I was very pleased with the service provided by the company and was impressed that your fitters took less than half an hour to assemble my shed.

  • DIAMOND10-6 - Prompt delivery and good communication. Good quality shed and the fitter went out of his way to put it up and called to let me know about an uneven base and usually meant it would not be put up. I REALLY appreciated that.
  • DIAMOND10-6 - Very good service. Very good shed.
  • DIAMOND6-4 - Very polite when doing business with them. Very sturdy and neat shed. Perfect for my needs
  • DIAMOND6-4 - The wait was shorter than I had been warned it might be. (My order was at peak time.) The contractor 1st Choice recommended for the base, and the workmen who put up the actual shed, arrived when they said they would, were polite and friendly and did a good job. So far, standing up well to the weather. Only been a few months. So don't know about longer term resilience yet.
  • DIAMOND6-4 - good communication no issues. Good quality construction - didnt disappoint.

  • DIAMOND8-6 - Very good communications, all worked well. Minor niggle, construction nails misaligned, count of 15 otherwise a very good product.
  • DIAMOND8-6 - Absolutely nothing bad to say about them. All worked just how you'd like bit too. Does exactly what it needs to, well constructed and looks good.
  • DIAMOND9-4 - A very good service, on time and assembled competently on site.
  • DIAMOND11-7 - Quick delivery good communication, best price. Everything is good/great except the door which i do not feel is very secure at all. the lock just touches the frame of the door so anyone could give it a good shove and gain access to the shed.
