Ensure the Timber Used is the Best for your new building
Platinum Portsmouth Tanalised Wooden Shed - 1st Choice Leisure Buildings
Platinum Traditional Style

Money can always be saved by selecting a cheaper timber such as whitewood. To a certain degree, it’s OK for a basic garden shed. However, It’s far better to insist on a quality redwood ‘deal’ timber. This wood grows far more slowly than whitewood so the grain is more tightly compacted, ensuring a longer life. A marginal extra expensive for a better long term prospect. Whitewood, because it grows quickly can be subject to the small knots dropping out.

All timber is responsibly sourced and is FSC ‘Forest Stewardship Council’ quality approved. This is very important these days where every effort needs to be taken to protect our environment.

The majority of 1st Choice’s garden sheds are made from redwood ‘deal’ timber for a long life.

Traditional Style Garden Sheds

Beware of Chipboard, Sterling Board, or OSB Boards Being Used
Diamond Shorehan Narrow Wooden Shed - 1st Choice Leisure Buildings
Diamond Shoreham Shed

You will find that most of the cheap garden sheds use chipboard, OSB, or Sterling board on the floors and roofs to save money. However, as soon as damp gets in these boards start to swell and disintegrate. That’s the end of your shiny new shed!

Some shed companies try to hide this by saying their floors and roofs are made from ‘Sheet Materials’. They avoid using the words chipboard or OSB board because they know there could be problems in the future.

1st Choice Leisure Buildings recommends solid timber – we do NOT use chipboard, OSB board or Sterling board!

An Ideal Solution For Your Home

Are All Panels Fully Pre Made For You?

Many of the cheapest shed companies deliver them in pieces where you have to build some of the panels yourself. Ludicrous! If you are buying a cheap shed always triple-check what you are getting! Your new buildings are unlikely to be pre-constructed, leaving you with a load of work to do. It may seem like a great idea to buy a kit. But know what you are letting yourself in for!

Perhaps when you left school you saw your future as a carpenter or a ‘chippy’. You may have been looking forward to a life building sheds. That’s fine! There’s nothing wrong with that. But if not then why don’t you let the factory’s do the work for you?

Insist on a complete building to be delivered to you.

How To Insulate a Garden Shed Floor, Walls and Roof

  • 1/  Measure the size of your building. How high are the walls, how large is the roof area, measure the floor if you want to insulate it
  • 2/  Decide on the type of insulation you would like to use. i.e. fibreglass type, insulating a shed with polystyrene, or foam insulation sheets
  • 3/  Order the selected insulation from your builder’s merchant or someone like B&Q
  • 4/  How to insulate the garden building walls – Cut the insulation to size and fit this in between the walls and tack into place.
  • 5/  Cover the wall with plywood, hardboard or T&G timber boards.
  • 6/  How to insulate a building roof – Cut the insulation to size for the roof, we recommend using polystyrene as this can be cut slightly oversize so it can be wedged into place
  • 7/  Cover the roof with plywood or hardboard. We recommend screwing this into place so it can be removed if need be.
  • 8/  Finally cover the joins in the wall and roof panels with cover strips. This ensures your insulating of your shed, summerhouse or hut has a tidy cosmetic finish
  • 9/  How to insulate the floor – You will need to fit insulation in between the floor joist and tack into place before assembling it.
  • 10 Alternately, buy an shed with insulation already in place. This is the easiest option but a little more costly.

Should I Choose Insulation For My Timber Building or Shed?

Throughout the summer months, it’s no problem using your building in your garden for the normal day to day things, whether it’s a little pottering about or enjoying being away from the house. But in the cold winter weather, it becomes a place not to be used. Which is a shame? How much better would it be if you could use it all year round with no limitations on what you could do down there. Well, this is possible by deciding to go for an insulated one and you will then not mind going down there all year round. You would then be able to enjoy your hobby down there, possibly allow your children to use, but with reservations on that use, or maybe just enjoy a little time away from the hubbub of the daily grind. If you had a little ‘home cottage’ type business and used in connection with that activity then you could claim the cost against your profits so that would make it even more feasible.

Is It Possible To Insulate After It Has Been Delivered?

If you have reasonable DIY skills then it is possible to line and insulate it after delivery. You would need to buy the insulation, normally fibreglass insulation or polystyrene, and some form of internal cladding. Mostly plywood would be used or maybe hardboard, which can have an attractive veneer finish on it or T&G cladding. To add the insulation you would need to cut it to fit within the internal timber framing. If you are using polystyrene you will find that it stays in position by itself. With the fibreglass, you would need to tack that into place as it’s quite floppy. When you come to insulate the roof I would always recommend the polystyrene as this can be cut slightly oversize and pushed into position. It would then be self-supporting. Ideally, get one or two friends in when you are doing the roof as they will be able to hold the roof sheets or T&G in place whilst you secure it into place. The final cosmetic thing to do is to add covering strips over all the joints. Challenging But Quite Rewarding

Are There Any Other Options Other Than DIY Insulation?

Our 40 years in the timber building industry means we can offer on all our Platinum range of buildings an optional insulation service where they would be insulated and then lined. By taking up this option your new building. cum man cave or she shed, would then be able to be used all year round and not just in the warmer months. The building would be insulated with Kingspan foil backed insulation which enhances the temperature within the building. There is a choice of internal claddings ranging from plywood, board or T&G to suit your needs and requirements. To finish off timber internal trims are added to ensure a great cosmetic finish.

Is It Expensive To Add Insulation To My Garden Building?

On each Platinum shed order form, there is the cost for the insulation so you can decide before ordering whether it will be cost effective for you. We can also insulate the floor as well but you would need to call to get the cost for this. By deciding on the lining and insulation option you would be able to use your shed all year round. How much better that would be for you – only you can decide. But it will make it an even more attractive proposition when the weather is not so good. How you use these extra days and hours is down to you but just to be able to go down and have some ‘me’ time is worth it just for that. It won’t take long to decide this is a great opportunity for you – a great ‘man cave’ or ‘shed den’.

Will My Insulated Timber Building Be Cosy In The Winter?

By adding insulation and lining it then it will definitely be warmer all year round. You will need to add heating to it, the same as in your home, but with that, it should nearly be as warm. So whether you do it or we make your life easier and we do it for you you can see this is a great and viable option. As far as heating is concerned we recommend an electric radiator as this produces nice dry heat. Do not use a Calor gas heater as this produces loads of moisture as well as being a fire risk. Don’t even attempt to do this. Another positive for insulation is that the building will stay cooler in the summer as well. Not many people are aware of this and are only concerned about keeping it warm. To be fair I was not too aware of that until, when I was at our display site, I went from an insulated office into an uninsulated one. I was staggered by the difference. So much so that I went and double checked. This is why it will be a good investment for your shed and a wise decision. You won’t regret it. The insulation option is well worth considering.

Can An Insulated Shed Help Sell My House?

There are many things which make a house easier to sell such as being in a good state of repair and decoration, to being in the right area and near the right schools. Another main area to ensure looks right is the garden. The front garden give potential buyers their first impression and when they view the back garden then this also needs to impress potential buyers.

Even simple things like ensuring the grass is cut and all weeds removed from any borders will help. Tidy away any random items so the garden displays an uncluttered look. Garden buildings can also play a part, whether it’s a garden shed or any other type of out building. If your outbuilding has been lined and insulated then this makes your house a much better proposition. And if it’s looking spick and span and, when combined with a tidy garden, will make your home more desirable.

The attraction of a an insulated garden shed is very appealing as this can give prospective purchasers a very good reason to choose your house. This will give them an opportunity to carry on using it as an office, or maybe they can use it as a recreation or craft room. Possible other uses are as a gloried den for the children which they would love. You can always look on the internet and ask what is the cheapest way to insulate a garden building or about insulation DIY options?

The choice of garden buildings is staggering with many different types available and you can see a good range on our web site. The most important consideration is to ensure it is lined and insulated (I always think this should be insulated and lined as the insulation has to go in before the lining. But it normally is described as lined and insulated, why I don’t know) The reason for the insulation option is to help to keep the building warmer in winter and more importantly, and not always appreciated, is to keep it cooler in the summer.

You need to ensure that the internal height is sufficient as many of the cheap (made down to a price) sheds and garden buildings are quite low. This is important as a low ceiling height will make it a little claustrophobic. Ensure that the building is made from T&G (tongue and grooved) timber and also, for long life, from redwood deal and not the cheaper white wood.

Where ever possible order double glazed doors and windows as this will help to keep the warmth in during the winter and the heat out during the summer making the building pleasant all year round. There is a number of options for the roof covering from heavy duty felt, long lasting Onduline roofing, felt tiles, cedar shingles or even a slatted roof. All will keep your new building dry from rain and snow so the choice is cosmetic.

The managing director of property developers, Puddlestone, said that there has been a significant rise if the demand for homes with insulated buildings in the gardens and this has made those homes more attractive and easier to sell. This is put down partly to the increase in people wanting to work from home due to the financial crisis. Having said that it does not always mean that the sale value will reflect the cost of the home office just that it makes the home easier to sell.

However, if you are thinking of investing in an insulated building for the garden it is good to know that it will help in the future to sell your home. So you have had the benefit of whilst you are living there and you also have the confidence that when you decide to move on it should be easier to do so.

Garden Sheds Over The Years

These buildings are a British institution and have been popular for many years. Even before the 2nd world war sheds in the garden were popular with the nation when we all gardeners ‘dug for victory’. Since then they have played a large role in the hearts of the nation. There are now few gardens which don’t have a building of some sort whether is a small garden hut or a large wooden shed. Whether it’s small behind a modern house or in a large garden shed for a more affluent home – you will find these buildings are very well used. Generally, houses built between the 1930s and ’50s have substantial gardens. This is where larger garden sheds are to be found. As we got into the 90’s gardens became smaller, putting constraints on the size of shed which could be built and corner sheds become more popular. After the housing bubble burst houses tended to be built with tiny gardens so only the smallest ones would fit the bill.

What Is A Shed?

In essence, storage sheds are normally single-storey buildings used in the garden more often, allotments. The size of the building varies depending on the use, needs and more importantly, the available space. In all instances, all these buildings play a useful role in the day to day life. The sheer versatility is helped by the many different designs which are available. From very basic huts to high-end buildings suitable for a multitude of uses. Essentially, these garden sheds consist of an internal frame onto which cladding is secured. Many sheds waterproofed against the elements. The roof is normally either apex (gable or V’shaped) or pent (single or mono-pitched). Although some buildings, usually in the higher price bracket, can sometimes have a hip roof like on a house. These are quite striking buildings but the price can put a lot of people off. The reason for the price is the complexity of manufacture.

What Materials are Garden Sheds Supplied In?

These buildings come in a variety of materials such as wood, timber, metal, steel, plastic or concrete. Often the choice of material used for these tends to be personal choice but different claddings have varying pros and cons. Timber sheds tend to be most popular due to the natural feel it the material gives. However, whilst they are strong, one of the downsides is they need to be treated to maintain their long life. Tanalised or pressure-treated ones won’t require as much maintenance. They normally last for around 15 years, so are very popular. Some sheds are made from galvanised steel with a long guarantee against rust, so no treating of these sheds is required. Beware of metal buildings which are ‘electro-plated’ rather than ‘hot dipped galvanised’. This treatment won’t last as long. Sheds made from more durable materials won’t rust so are a viable proposition for the owner who does not want any maintenance issues. However, these type of units can look a little bland and industrial but do serve their purpose in the garden very well.

Concrete is the ‘bruiser’ of the shed world. Being made from solid concrete they don’t need any maintenance to speak off. They can brush aside everything that the weather throws at them. One of the downsides of these is the limitation in sizes available and. Also, to some people, they can feel rather utilitarian.

1st Choice for Corner Sheds and Summer Buildings

These buildings has evolved over the years to suit their surroundings. This is why corner garden sheds have been more common where people try to make the most of all of their gardens. Along with the standard pent or monopitch, apex or gable buildings these corner buildings are very popular and it’s easy to understand why.
