Some of our competitors advertise they use treated timber for their garden sheds, however it is not pressure treated timber. Pressure treated timber is what should be used for any timber used externally. The timber is placed in a sealed vessel at the sawmill and injected with treatment under high pressure so that it goes right into the timber. The treatment is an anti-rot preservative and also an insect repellent. Timber that is not pressure treated should not be used externally as it will simply just start to rot straight away. Some other sellers say that the timber is ‘treated’, normally just paint it (watery paint usually) and this doesn’t actually protect the timber… it just puts a colour on it and the timber will still get damp and wet and then rot.

Scandinavian timber is a lot different from native UK/Irish timber in terms of it’s quality & strength. Local timber is a far lower quality because it’s younger (generally 3-5 years as opposed to a min 15 years from Scandinavian), it’s therefore very soft (which means it will rot quite quickly, it’s like a sponge!!) + there are a large amount of knots in native timber which obviously weaken the timber and garden sheds.

All our timber is all planed again throughout (in the sawmill) it means that the timber is smooth. This is not just good for handling purposes but also because it’s smooth it will not absorb water into it unlike rough timer will. Rough timber as mentioned above will act like a sponge and absorb moisture/rain water etc. whereas the rain water will usually just run off the planed shiplap boards.

Timber THICKNESS - Our quality Garden Sheds are built to last years and years.

The shiplap boards we use are 23.5mm thick, with a planed finish. Normally the shiplap used by most other sellers is only 12/13mm and a small few might use 18mm. Also our shiplap board are interlocking board and not t&g (tongue & groove). 12/13mm boards are always t&g as they are not strong enough to interlock. Our boards are very strong and we also designed a rounded underneath edge for water to run off.

The frame on all the garden sheds are 36x75mm throughout (floor, all panels, roof). This is pretty much unrivalled, never really seen anyone else to do this. As a result our sheds are definitely the strongest on the market. Normal size of frame used would be only 32x35mm, so ours is over double the thickness. Also all our framing timber is fully pressure treated, and again I’ve never seen any competitors with this.

The flooring on all our sheds is similar to the shiplap (23.5mm planed boards) and is also an interlocking board. It has an unique design which we came up with for strength.

Lining - All our garden sheds, side walls and roofing are lined with breathable membrane.

The interior of all of our garden sheds (roof and sidewalls) are all lined with a breathable membrane to protect from damp & condensation. Most of garden sheds are not lined at all and sometimes if you read the small print on shed brochures you will read that they are not suitable for storage purposes! Other sellers that may line the sheds, usually charge extra plus the lining is actually plastic and this in fact makes the shed sweat more, resulting in damp & rot. Our lining is white in colour and it looks good & keeps the sheds bright inside.

Roofing - Garden sheds with box-profile metal roof panels.

The roofing on all of our sheds are box-profile metal. Box profile is industrial strength as opposed to corrugated steel, etc. Box profile is the sheeting you would find on industrial units and ours is always in a slate grey colour. We also fit a metal ridge cap on the very top of all garden sheds and sheets & ridges are screwed down with 38mm roofing screws.

Note: majority of garden sheds on the Irish market have mineral felt roofs. Felt is actually an underlay material and therefore is only a temporary material with a limited lifespan when exposed in the elements. Generally it will wear and tear allowing water to get into the timber in the shed. Once water gets into the shed, no matter how good the shed is, it will now rot!

Windows - Garden sheds come with clear acrylic windows (stronger than glass)

The windows on all of our sheds are acrylic. Acrylic is stronger (x17 times), clearer and safer than glass, also unlike perspex (not to be confused with) it doesn’t discolour. Generally on sheds, the window size is 2ft square, however we can do different sizes and some models might have a different size (i.e. 6ft wide chalets & lodges). Doors with windows in them are also made using acrylic and we can do varies designs and custom builds.

Our garden cottages come with two windows as standard, if you require more then please contact us for a bespoke quote.

Hardware - We use only best quality galvanized nails, wood screws and pad-blots.

All shed panels are nailed in the workshop using coil nail guns and most importantly using Hot-Dipped Galvanized Nails. This means the nails are properly galvanized as opposed to coated or zinc coated galvanized nails, or nails not even galvanized at all. Those inferior nails will ultimately leave streak marks on the shed panels, this is because they are rusting (not suitable for external use) which means the the timber will generally then rot or crack around the rusting nails. In terms of hinges and pad-bolts, etc. again we use proper galvanised goods. We use 300mm Tee Hinges on all doors and all sheds are supplied with a lockable pad-bolt.

On assembly, the sheds will be screwed together (5.0x70mm wood screws). All competitors recommend nailing the panels together on assembly, however the advantages of screwing the panels together are that: The sheds can be disassembled (easily) if ever needed to. Sheds that are nailed are very difficult to disassemble and re-erect as the timbers get damaged when taking the panels apart and rarely go back in one piece. Nails also rust and as mentioned above, the timber surrounding the rusty nail will then split and rot.
