It may seem a strange subject – how to choose a garden shed door – but this humble object is vital to your new shed or garden building. If you think about it the shed door is the only part of your garden building which is designed to move, there may be many parts on cheap sheds that move as well but they are not meant to, and so must be made to resist these moving forces for years on end.

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.
