Take a minute out of your gardening and just add up all your garden machinery, your bike and all the tools are actually worth, it’s a surprisingly high value so you might want to invest in a secure shed option like one of these metal sheds, made out of hot dipped galvanised, strengthened steel, so it’s built just for the job, its also got, and I particularly like this bit, the sliding doors at the front the handles are pre-drilled, you obviously need a padlock on it, its just easy to fit, the dark green panels are powder coated and that’s much durable than ordinary paint, in fact the whole thing has got a 12 year guarantee against rust.
All of our wooden sheds have some form of preservative treatment to prevent the timber from rotting due to adverse weather and fungal decay. Two types of shed treatment are available: dip-treated and pressure treated.
Dip-treated sheds are the most common and they can be recognised by their cedar-red finish. Dip-treating is the quickest and cheapest method of applying preservative to the sheds' timber but it is not as long lasting as pressure treatment and so requires regular applications of brush preservatives to maintain protection.
Pressure-treated sheds have the preservative forced deep into the heart of the wood and the grain structure under vacuum pressure. In effect, the preservative becomes an integral part of the timber giving it a long life and effective protection against rot. Anti-rot guarantees with pressure treated sheds can be as much as 15 years.
