It’s often easy to choose on price but this can be a false economy. A cheap shed 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.
You can choose from thick 15mm (finished thickness) shiplap or 19mm (finished thickness) loglap redwood T&G cladding for your potting shed. The timber itself is solid long lasting redwood timber, not the cheaper inferior whitewood used on most greenhouse, and the walls and framing 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.
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.
It’s always a good idea, where ever possible, to view beforehand. We do have solar potting sheds on display as well as several of the Platinum Garden 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 Woking
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??
In addition to the great features we will assemble them 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.
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.
