A compact yet well-built garden shed like the 6 x 4 Mercia Overlap Apex is key for success when creating outdoor storage while keeping within a tighter budget. This reliable shed is small enough to disappear into an unused corner of your garden, while offering enough space to house lawn mowers, gardening equipment or patio furniture. 



Although the focus of this shed is useability over looks or an outlandish design, the inclusion of fixed windows go a long way in producing a more inviting and comfortable environment when using the shed. The styrene used for the glazing is shatterproof and therefore safer than many types of traditional glass, ensuring optimal safety in the case of those stray footballs or frisbees that sometimes make appearances in bustling family gardens. 

Part of what makes this shed appealing is its classic look, with an apex roof that is covered with durable mineral roofing felt, and rough sawn overlap timber cladding. It is hard to go wrong with such a tried and tested design, whatever the look of your garden, and the addition of a wood preservative such as Protek - whose range is available for order through elbec - can be a great way to personalise the look of your shed while protecting the timber from rot. 

Elsewhere in the shed, you will find proof of Mercia's relentless efforts to create a highly useful garden building. The 7mm cladding used in each wall is produced by overlapping horizontal boards which have been pre-treated for a good level of resistance to rot or infestation in the initial stages of transit and assembly. Meanwhile, in both the floor and roof of this shed, 8mm solid sheet board is used for its excellent uniform strength and water resistance. A durable 28mm x 28mm timber framing gives strength to the overall structure and make certain your shed will stand the test of time. 


Additional Information

Your  6 x 4 Mercia Overlap Apex Shed is supplied in parts, with an easy to follow instruction manual that shows you how to assemble the shed at home. Putting the shed together may be easier with an extra pair of hands in the form of a friend, and may take one or two days to finish depending on your level of DIY experience. Completing the assembly process can be hugely satisfying, and you should soon apply the wood preservative needed to ensure your 10-year anti-rot guarantee will remain valid. Examine the details of this guarantee with care to ensure you can make use of this coverage if ever necessary.

Booking Delivery

You will be required to book your delivery date at the time of placing your order (except for Metal Shed). Our 'Request a Delivery Date' service is available to the majority of areas and you'll find that the majority of the UK postcodes are FREE but some areas may incur a delivery surcharge and some postcodes are not covered at all. Select a 'requested delivery date' by entering your postcode in the 'Request a delivery date' section above. You will also be notified at this time if your area incurs a surcharge or delivery is not covered in your area.

Prior to Delivery

On the morning of your delivery date, you'll be sent an update by text with an estimated 2-hour delivery slot (this update can only be provided where a mobile number has been supplied on the billing address section at the time of checkout) together with a link to the manufacturer delivery portal where you'll be able to track your order.

Please note: Mercia Metal Sheds ONLY - your order is delivered by a courier you will not be notified prior to the delivery. If you are not in on the day of the delivery you will be carded and asked to contact the courier to arrange a new mutual delivery date. The estimated delivery lead time for Mercia's Metal sheds is identified on the product for the metal shed. Lead times are on working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturer. Some remote areas will take a little longer.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on either a 3.5T, 7.5T or 18T Lorry. Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an unsafe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.

We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs.


Orders with Assembly 

The lead time for our installation option is around 12 weeks from the date of order. With the installation option, the majority of orders will have their delivery and installation on separate days; there will be a small number of orders which will have delivery and installation on the same day. You will be advised by the manufacturer's installation team which category your order falls into.

Depending on the installation option for your order, you will be contacted within the delivery timescale and given a date for either delivery/assembly on the same date or a separate date for delivery and assembly.
