Shiplap Dip Treated Sheds
This is a new range of high-quality shiplap dip treated sheds. Now the great thing about these they use interlocking construction and a whole host of security features. So if you are after, and who isn’t, if you are after a strong, sturdy and secure shed it is probably in this range.
This one is the ever- popular eight by six that fits into most gardens, but within the range there is quite a few different sizes. Take that little dinky four by three lovely for a patio or a smaller garden and its great just to put those things in that you are using every day. Then it goes up to the whopping 12 by 8 for the really serious DIYer. Now which ever one you choose in the range they are all made to the same high standard.
Right first of all, this shiplap part of the name that describes the profile of the boards. Now these boards they are smooth planed and they have got really modern looking, contemporary style to it. So it is not a shed that you are going to hide away anywhere. Shiplap also means the profile it allows water to run away. And because it is interlocking, each of these boards interlocks with the next; it means that drafts don’t get through so that everything inside the shed is snug. Now the dip part, it means that the wood has been dipped in preservative, what that means for us shed owners you have got a 10 year guarantee against rot. The maintenance is minimal, all you have to do is repaint it or re stain it every couple of years to keep up with trends or even create your own garden trend.
But for me the action end of the shed is where the door is. Now depending on which model you choose you are going to have one or two doors. One door could be hung on either side, but whatever door you have got they are only using security hinges, so when it is closed nobody can get at those screws. The plate hasp and staple latch adds even more security as the fixings are hidden when the latch is closed and fitted with a suitable padlock. The door itself is important because that is the bit that gets shut and blown in the wind, and this has got a Z frame so it is really sturdy, that is going to last a long time. Just while we are at the front here, planed wood barge boards and a beautiful finial, just to stop you from seeing any joins, it finishes off the shed nicely. But to be a real shed in a real garden it needs to be practical and inside there is loads of stuff going on. The moment you come inside the shed you realise there is a lot more usable space and that is because it is 6 inches higher than most other sheds on the market. So suddenly you have got more air, you have got more places to put maybe even an extra shelf and more storage. The framing is using chunkier wood than normal so the whole thing is sturdier. Especially when you have got the shiplap boards on interlocking it is a rigid structure. Then down here, the floor it is boarded and the great thing is that is pressure treated wood and that is a 15 year guarantee against rot, because the last thing that you want to be doing is trying to put any preservative underneath that. And that goes for the bearers, the whole thing is underpinned by sitting on bearers and they are the things that actually have contact with the surface and ground. So you don’t want to be touching those and again a 15 year guarantee, you can put it up and then forget about it. And the boarded floor means that it is hardwearing and it will stand up to anything that you throw at it.
Now the solid sheet roof is covered by top quality green mineral felt so once your shed is packed it is going to be really snug in there. Now this model has got an apex roof, but you might have an awkward area say under a tree or against a wall where you want a slope roof a pent roof, that is available as well. Talking of security windows are obviously an easy access for any wanting to get in there. This model has two windows some have one and some have none, but if you have got windows they are made out of this stuff polycarbonate. And that is unbreakable, it’s not going to go brittle, its not going to discolour in the sun it is actually the material that they make the visors on astronaut’s helmets out of. So it has got to be good stuff. Also they are screwed in using security screws, they go in once one way and they are not coming out again so you can not prise that window out.
Now obviously you get everything you need to put this shed up so it will take two people, a couple of hours to get this beauty up. When you start thinking about all the security aspects, the way it has been built, the high-quality, the premium nature of the shed, it really is one of the best sheds on the market.
