Beware of Cheaply Made Insecure Garden Sheds
With the cost of gardening equipment and workshop tools rising and the high cost of garden furniture it is important that you take all precautions possible to alleviate the possibility of theft because you know it makes sense. The simplest thing you can do is to ensure that your garden shed or workshop is kept locked at all times when not being used. This, however, often gets overlooked as we can become complacent (I'm guilty of this) and feel this won't happen to us or that you don't have any great value in your shed. What you need to remember even if the items in your garden shed are not worth very much they could be used to help break into your house which, besides the monetary value, can be very distressing. So this is a sobering thought.

How To Choose Timber Cladding for Your New Garden Shed
You will find there is a great deal of variation in the timber used on garden sheds. On the very cheap sheds you are likely to find that the planks of wood for the walls are just sawn timber (i.e., will have a rough finish) and each of these boards will overlap the one above. Some boards are cut in a feather edge finish (i.e. If you look end on to the plank it will appear triangular) and these overlap each other. In my view these are better than the square planks of wood as the feather edge makes for a smoother finish. Both of these are OK if you are on a small budget but it's vital that the timber is not wafer thin. You need to ensure that the boards are at least 12mm thick so the wood can cope with changes in weather conditions. Any less than that and there is a good chance the boards will split during any long hot spells of weather. You will find that some of the cheap sheds are made from boards only 6 mm thick which is crazy. These boards will not last more than a few years at best. --- Carry On Reading- - - - - - .
