Garden sheds and Summer Houses have a range of windows. You will find that on garden sheds they are normally functional where as on summer houses the windows are a little more fancy. The type of material used in these windows varies from the decent and top end garden buildings down to the cheap mass produced sheds and summerhouses. On the better buildings you will find that proper glass has been used and the reason for this is that it is very stable. This means that it does not discolour, so you can see clearly through it all the time, nor does it move, meaning that you won't hear it moving in the wind.
On the cheap garden sheds and summerhouses you will find quite often that they will use plastic, perspex or acrylic. This often is thinner than glass which enables the these type of windows to flex and can be noisy when the wind blows. You will also find that over the years they will discolour and lose some of the transparency. These shed and summerhouse windows are also susceptible to unsightly scratches.- Continue reading --
Different garden shed manufacturers use different types of materials for their shed or summerhouses floors.

As soon as water gets into the shed floor it will be absorbed into the chips making the board swell and then disintegrate. There is nothing you can do to repair this and your garden shed floor would need replacing, or at the very least, a floor section - Continue reading --

What you need to consider are the potential dangers in our sheds as, sometimes, because we are relaxed we can let our guard down and take unnecessary chances. When we are in a working environment we have other work colleagues who look out for us as well as the dreaded 'health and safety' rules which stops us doing many things but actually does makes sense a lot most of the time.
Some areas to be aware about in your garden shed is the handling of natural products such as compost because ailments such as legionnaires disease are possible. Fertilisers and pesticides are other products in your shed with which you need to take very careful steps with. The best advice in these instances is to always use gardening gloves to protect your hands from any contamination and for fiddly work there is the option to use latex gloves which give full feeling in your hands but still offer protection - continue
