Platinum Alton Solar Sheds for Your Garden
It’s always good to make use of your garden and you can’t beat the beautiful taste of fresh produce from YOUR garden so a potting shed is a good investment. However, you need to be a little careful in your choice to ensure you won’t be disappointed as there are many ‘cheap’ sheds available there for you to choose from. It’s often easy to choose on price but this can be a false economy.
A cheap model will be made from cheaper, often unsuitable, materials and is likely to have horticultural glass or plastic for the windows. These Platinum buildings are made to last and to make you feel proud of them. Based on the same principles of the ‘high end’ Southampton workshops they are built to last. The attention to detail is staggering and include brass hinges and a five lever mortice lock on the stable door, supplied as standard.
There is diagonal bracing in all corners and the building is screwed together. There is a really great bench for working on and an opening window on each end for ventilation. The cladding, floor and framing are fully pressure treated for long life and is all timber, NO OSB board or ‘sheet’ materials on these buildings. All of these features ensure the very best for your garden.
Choice of Claddings and Extra Thick Floor as Standard
You can choose from thick 15mm (finished thickness) shiplap or 19mm (finished thickness) loglap redwood T&G cladding for your shed. The floor is solidly constructed from 19mm (15mm finish) timber. The roof is protected with a heavy duty green mineral polyester-based roofing felt atop 16mm (12mm finished) T&G match boarding.
The roof incorporates a unique soffit venting system which ensures good airflow within the roof space. If desired we can fit Onduline roof sheets in black or green for extended life.The timber itself is solid long lasting redwood timber, not the cheaper inferior whitewood used on most buildings, and the walls, framing and floor are fully pressure treated with 15 years design life against rotting. Vitally important on a building like this is toughened glass for safety and this is standard.
Unlike many of our competitors who use cheap horticultural glass, which is highly dangerous if it breaks, or cheap plastic which flexes and is noisy in the wind. Toughened glass is the correct choice where you have young children in the garden playing. Further enhancing the qualities is the screwed framework. Again attention to detail.
Possibility of Bespoke Potting Rooms To Suit You
There is a standard range of sizes available which will suit most situations and gardens, however, if these don’t meet your needs or you would like something different then just give us a call and ask the question. If it is at all possible then we will endeavour to help.
Well worth considering if you like these buildings but want something a little different. Don’t be afraid to ask and NEVER settle for second best.
Viewing of Platinum Solar Sheds
It’s always a good idea, where ever possible, to view your potential shed beforehand. We do have solar sheds on display as well as several of the Platinum Workshops on view. By taking a look at these you will be able to see the high attention to detail which goes into the Platinum range of building, hopefully, giving you a good opinion of what you are likely to get.
They are situated near Guildford and Farnham and has a largish display. By taking a look, at least at similar buildings from the manufacturer, you can get a feel for the quality which you can never get from a brochure or computer screen.
As far as other web sites are concerned which don’t offer an opportunity to view the question to ask yourself is WHY??
These Solar Potting Buildings are Assembled FREE * of Charge as Standard
In addition to the great features we will assemble them (*) green delivery areas in your garden onto your solid, level prepared base at no charge. This will save you a lot of hard work and time. You can also be sure that they have been assembled correctly which is crucial of these type of buildings. That has to be good for you. Many suppliers say it’s easy to build (mainly because they don’t offer that option) but don’t take the risk.
It’s easy to be wise after the event and you don’t want problems afterwards do you? If it has been erected correctly then it will withstand all that ‘Mother Nature’ throws at it. However, if you really want to erect it yourself then we can offer a discount off our list prices.
Peace of Mind From a Reputable Manufacturer
There are many ‘dodgy’ companies out there trying to rip off unwary people so it best to be a little careful. There are, of course, more good than bad in this business so how can you tell. The length of time in business and customers feedback is always a good indicator. At 1st Choice Leisure Buildings, a family firm, we have been involved in the garden buildings business since 1979 (and before Maggie Thatcher).
We have always try to progress as well and in 1996 (before Google) were the 1st garden building company to sell on the Internet. So we are not stuck in the ‘dark ages’. You can also see customer feedback on this independent feedback site. By taking a look at customers feedback you can get a good feel for what we are like as a family business. Hopefully you will make THAT decision.
