Sheds and Storage

 

 

 

Types of Shed  

 

 

There are two main types of shed:

 

 

 

 

     

An Apex Shed

 

Apex Sheds  

  • Traditional pointed roof                          

  • Preferred by some gardeners because it blends in with most house and garden styles

  • Ideal if there are no height restrictions due to trees and bushes

  • Roof gives extra headroom allowing easier access and movement

  • Optimum standing height at centre with generous storage at sides

     
A Pent Shed  

Pent Sheds     

  • Flat roof with slight slope to allow rainwater to drain away

  • Use in areas where height is limited

  • An apex shed may block a favourable view; a pent shed will not

  • Offers a more practical storage solution

  • Can be situated against a fence or wall

Most shed walls are made of the following 3 types of timber:

 


 

 

     
Shiplap  

1. Shiplap T & G


Interlocking tongue 

and groove boards. 

 

Offers greater protection 

from wind and rain. Sheds 

are factory finished with a 

surface treatment only. 

 

Sheds come with a 10 year

guarantee, provided that the

shed is retreated at least once

a year with a timber preservative.

     
Overlap  


2. Overlap


Rough sawn boards

with each board partly

covering the next.

 

This allows rain to

run down the front face

of the shed, from one plank

to the one beneath.

 

Sheds come with a 10 year

guarantee, provided that the

shed is retreated at least once

a year with a timber preservative.

     

Overlap Pressure Treated

 

3. Overlap Pressure Treated


Preservative has been forced into

the timber at high pressure, 

removing the need for annual treatment.

 

Extra advantage of being

pressure treated for low maintenance. 

 

Sheds come with an unconditional

15 year guarantee, removing the need for 

annual treatment.
