When thinking about a wooden building for your garden it’s important to ensure you check out the details. With many options available to you it’s very easy to look just at prices – and price alone. If you want to have a building that’s going to last then this can be a very bad decision. These Platinum Titchfield Pent buildings, which are based on the Southampton and Fareham range of workshops, should be seriously considered.
The name is Titchfield but they certainly are not Titchy in quality. With T&G redwood timber throughout, the superb Onduline roofing and with all the cladding, framing and floor fully pressure treated, and is expected to last 15 years warranty against rotting, are just some of the boasts. Also, the Onduline roof is also expected to last for 15 years against leaking. They have diagonal bracing which is screwed in all corners and this gives immense strength. Adding to all that they have an eaves height of 1.8m rising up to 2.4m on all workshops except on the 4ft and 5ft models. All of these features ensure that this should be the shed you choose for your garden.
These Titchfield pent buildings are manufactured solidly and you have a choice of T&G redwood deal (NOT inferior whitewood) claddings either 15mm or 19mm thick (finished thickness). Add in the 16mm (12mm finish) floors and 16mm (12mm finish) roof – which is covered with Onduline Boarding with its extra long life – you can be sure of great strength. Most timber sheds are made from the cheaper whitewood – not on these.
If you choose this for your garden it will be constructed from the long lasting superb redwood deal which ensures the longest life for your new building. In addition to these superb features, they boast toughened glass (not cheap plastic, styrene or horticultural) which ensures the best strength and gives peace of mind for when the grandchildren come round. The windows are joinery made, naturally, and not just banged together with some nails like most others available. These are built to last with their screwed diagonal corner bracing.
You have to work hard for your money so it makes sense, where ever possible, to view what you are buying. By doing so you will be able to inspect it at close range and make your own mind up about its features, ensuring that the description matches the web site or brochure details. This is where we differ to most of the businesses on the web by offering you the chance to view these great workshops in situ. You can inspect examples at our show rooms near Farnham and Guildford and see for yourself how good they really are.
By examining these yourself you can see the attention to detail on these Titchfield workshops. Something which is not possible just by looking on a web site or brochure. Great peace of mind before investing a lot of money. This begs the question ‘What have those other companies got to hide if they won’t let you see their products before purchase.’
It’s very easy to set up a web site and start selling timber buildings and there are some companies which are a little suspect at best. Having said that there are many good companies to choose from. 1st Choice Leisure Buildings have been in the garden buildings industry since 1979, even before Maggie Thatcher ran the country. Besides that, we were the first company in the UK to sell garden buildings on the internet in 1996 (before Google) so we have always try to progress as the years went by.
We do believe in the old fashioned way of doing things, being a family firm, and this is backed up by the independent feedback which show the opinion of earlier customers have of 1st Choice Leisure Buildings. You can get a feel for how good (or bad) a firm is by visiting such sites and will enable you to make a judgment before spending your money on your new timber workshop.
