Before deciding on a new wooden shed for your garden, you should always do your homework (sorry!) as it’s very easy to be taken in with a flashy website leaflet or colour brochure.
Check the specifications to ensure it will have the strength to last. So always check out the thickness of the timber, whether it’s made from redwood or the cheap inferior whitewood, how thick the framing is etc.
Are the doors and windows joinery made, meaning they will last a long time? Does it have toughened glass for safety or imperfect horticultural glass, plastic or perspex? All important questions.
When choosing a new shed for your garden made from wood you need to check out thoroughly the specifications of it. Examine the very high specifications below to ensure any prospective purchase meets the very high standards of our buildings.
By doing so you will see that these buildings are unbeatable for quality. They may be just a little more than a ‘run of the mill’ building but no corners are cut when making it. NEVER made ‘down to a price’. You MAY save some money but will you get what you want?
On many of the buildings available on the web, you will find that they will deliver them to your house and leave them for you to build. You can save a little money this way, but you will have to build it yourself. That’s OK if you are a good DIYer, but it will still be hard work.
The best option is to take advantage of 1st Choice’s FREE assembly option on the Diamond and Platinum buildings. They will do all the hard work – all you need to do is build a level base for it to go onto.
And they can even arrange that for you as well if you wish. This way, you can be sure your new building will be built correctly, and all you need to do is enjoy it.
We have a large range of buildings for you to choose from and in several styles. However, we specialise in making sheds from timber to suit your needs. Whether it needs to be taller, extra or fewer windows or the doors and windows moved, we can do that for you.
Ensure you buy the building to suit you and your family with no compromises. Give us a call at (0333) 800 8880 or visit our showroom and discuss what you would like. We are happy to provide a quote to suit you with no pressure.
To make the most of your new building, it’s a good idea to have it lined and insulated
to get the most use out of you all year round.
Doing so will keep the building cooler in summer and warmer in winter. It’s possible to do this yourself if you feel confident.
However, there is an option to do this for you on all the Platinum buildings. It can be seen as a luxury, but you will be glad you did on those hot summer days or cold winter days. Just contact us, and we will arrange a free quote for you.
Shed Show Rooms
We provide wooden sheds with a protective treatment but why not consider a building painted with Sadolin (Diamond Buildings) or Valtti (Platinum Buildings) paints? Both are available in a range of colours so you find a colour to suit you. You can find more details about painted sheds here
. Or, just contact us, and we will arrange a free quote for you.
It’s great advice to view beforehand
and by doing so you can be sure of the quality. You can be the judge and decide whether the higher price is worth paying.
Can that building you are looking at on the ‘web’ be viewed beforehand? And if not – WHY not?
Try to find time and make a trip down to our showroom where you can examples on view. By doing so, you will then be able to decide what you may be buying. We have a large collection of wooden buildings that you are welcome to view.
We will be delighted to show you the different buildings and answer any queries you may have. We can provide quotations as well. Another thing to do is to take a look at the feedback from previous customers which can be enlightening.
