Give Some Thought Before Choosing Your Tanalised Pressure Treated Shed
When buying a tanalised shed, you may think it’s very straight forward. Open up a browser on your computer and type in the size you need and then look for the lowest price. Seems easy? But, unfortunately, it’s not if you want the best value building to meet your needs. There are many different grades of structures available, a bit like all the different cars available.
All will do a job, but they won’t all do everything, so you need to decide what is important to you. If you want the very cheapest pressure treated shed then look just on price but if you want a wooden building to last then research what it is made from. What type of timber, how tall is it, does it include a proper floor, toughened glass and free assembly as not everybody wants to struggle to build a large building.
All our Platinum sheds are available in more or less in any size to suit you. All these include free assembly (green delivery areas) saving you loads of money and making life just a little easier. They can be made bespoke to suit your needs in a range of styles, sizes and finishes.
All have toughened glass as standard for safety and feature good height, strong doors and are complete with ‘proper’ timber roofs (no chipboard or OSB boards used).
Before buying a tanalised shed, try to find the time to see it before going ahead. That way you can be sure it will meet your expectations and won’t be an expensive flop. Don’t regret not doing so.
By taking a little time and writing down what is important to you and how long you are hoping the building to last, you will then be able to shortlist suitable models. And the best bit of advice is to visit a show site and see examples of buildings so you can make your judgement as to how good they are – or NOT.
Now’s The Time To Take On Those DIY Jobs
Britain is full of DIY addicts with most enjoying this activity, but with many, it’s the cost-saving which is important. And in these current recessionary times, this activity has increased, but also many DIY jobs are put off, and folks are making do in the meantime. Whilst most of the DIY goes on indoors, the garden is an area where DIY can be king, and this goes under the guise of gardening. If you think about it, this is the same as DIY as you are not paying experts to look after the garden but are doing it yourself. Probably the rich still employ people in their gardens, but this is not the ‘norm’. Gardening DIY is an enjoyable pursuit and to see the results appearing over time is highly satisfying. Also in the garden is the pressure treated shed which is used for many purposes, generally for storage but it’s in DIY where the shed comes to the ‘fore’.
With a bench in the shed, you can complete many jobs in relative comfort and safety. You can also use the garden bench in the pursuit of gardening DIY by utilising this space for planting out or cleaning flower pots etc. DIY does tend to be mainly a warmer weather activity, and Easter does tend to be the starting point in the year. The sun (sometimes) and the four days holiday does give people an opportunity to think about what they would like to do and to plan for the coming months.
The garden shed can be cleared out ready to be made more use of, and this is always a good idea. If you are thinking of upgrading, then you should always think about a pressure treated shed as a replacement with all its virtues.
When the major sporting events are on the horizon, this does tend to concentrate the mind and gives a little boost to ensure these jobs are done before they start, usually, on TV. This will ensure that these events can be watched without feeling guilty. The little jobs around the house, the pruning and weeding in the garden and the clearing up the garden shed, summerhouse or log cabin should be done in plenty of time without the pressure.
Build It Magazine also claims this to be the case and that they expected the number of DIY jobs to be undertaken to increase before events, such as the World Cup, European Championships and Olympics. Some of the most popular (??) jobs to be completed includes renovating the garden shed, or replacing it with a new tanalised shed version (?) and clearing a green space for family gatherings or barbecue sessions with friends.
The deputy editor of this magazine, Anna-Maria DeSouza claimed that as we got closer to one or another of these major events, then there will be a huge rush to complete these jobs in the house and the garden. By clearing the backlog, this will enable ‘her indoors’ to feel a little more comfortable and able to take it a little easier as well. It was expected that visits to garden centres to buy plants, garden furniture and barbecue will increase as homeowners get ready.
Previous DIY jobs will often be finished as well, leading up to these major events for the very same reasons. This clears the mind as well as helping with the value of the home, and if they have a garden, then looking after this will also pay off. A neglected garden shed should be rectified and may be retreated or by using tanalised timber to make it look better and last longer. The aim is to improve the home and garden. You can see a range of pressure treated sheds at 1st Choice, which will stand the test of time.
During the last world cup, Halifax Home Insurance claimed nearly £4 billion was spent creating garden dens and fitting out sheds so their owners could spend time enjoying the football. It was also claimed 1.4 million men already have a garden den, converted garage or shed where they can enjoy these sporting events. To me, that seems an incredible amount which I think is a little over the top. If the figures are right, I would like to know what happened to my share.
