Just wanted to say how pleased we are with our shed. The guys who came to erect it were really pleasant, helpful and very efficient. It looks great and we'll definitely recommend your company to anyone we know looking to buy a shed.
The whole experience of dealing with your company has been so easy and beyond expectations. Many, many thanks.
The windows on sheds and summer houses rely on the windows to let light in so are crucial to your enjoyment of your new garden building. The way these windows are fixed to the building is also crucial so you need to be aware of the method used. The reason for this is so that you don't end up with leaking windows which can be a nuisance.
There are various ways as to how the windows are secured into place. You will often find that they are 'dry fixed' using timber beading. This is a very good way of keeping your shed or summerhouse dry provided the beading is pushed up tight against the glass. Some building only use small nails or brads to secure the glass in place and this can sometimes leak. Another option is with a mastic or sealant around the outside edge of the glass and the shed wall or even with sealant behind the glass.
When I had my garden shed company, which I started in 1979, we use to use the dry fixing method but this was supplemented with a window ledge with a recess cut for the glass to sit into. The beadings were fixed from inside the shed or summerhouse and pressed tight against the glass. This was also more secure as the beading could not be removed from outside - Continue reading --
As garden sheds and summerhouses floors are very important to the life of your new building you need to be very careful in your choice of garden sheds manufacturers. Besides the type of materials used, many of which are NOT suitable for outdoor use, you need to consider various other things to ensure your new garden shed will stand the test of time.
An important question to ask is - how thick is the floor. The very minimum size you should accept is 16mm (12mm finished thickness). This size will create a strong floor if made from proper timber, however, beware of garden shed companies offering shed floors only 10mm thick (this is 3/8's of an inch) which is smaller than a standard pencil. Just take a pencil and see how easy it breaks. This will prove to you
how foolhardy it is to use boards this thin - Continue reading --
Our garden sheds are places where many activities take place such as using it as a garden workshop, for potting plants, for a recreation room away from the house, maybe as an garden office or for storing items away. 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
