Store larger items like bicycles or lawn mowers with this robust storage shed from reputable manufacturer Mercia. With its classic apex roof design and high-quality interlocking timber cladding, the 7 x 5 Mercia Shiplap Shed is ready to keep your items safe from the elements from the moment it is assembled in your garden. 



With this shed, Mercia has taken the materials that are best suited to the job and used them to create a shed that is highly functional and has great value for your money. For example, the two fixed windows use styrene, a shatterproof and transparent material that is perfect for allowing light into your shed while keeping safe in any bustling family garden. 

The single door for this shed is ledged for additional strength and can be kept closed with the turn of two simple catches, although the durable timber used is also ideal when adding a padbolt or other locking system if you plan to make your shed more secure. Inside, an overall ridge height of 6' 4" gives users a comfortable degree of headroom in the middle of the shed. 

Arguably, the unique strength of this range comes from the use of 12mm tongue and groove cladding, created with pressure-treated timber sourced from sustainable forests (FSC certified). Horizontal timber boards tightly interlock and offer owners a reliably strong and weather-enduring shed that will last many years. A curved 'shiplap' profile on the exterior of this cladding helps divert rainfall away from your shed. 

Thanks to the pressure treatment given to the timber prior to its delivery, your shed will have a good level of protection from rot and damp upon assembly. Nevertheless, elbec recommends applying a good quality wood preservative such as Protek to ensure you get the most out of your timber in the future. This will be a great first step in following Mercia's care instructions that must be observed in order for your 10-year anti-rot guarantee to remain valid. 

The 8mm solid sheet board used for the roof and floor of the 7 x 5 Mercia Shiplap Shed is chosen for its excellent water resistant properties and uniform strength, backed up by mineral roofing felt that lines the roof and strong floor joists beneath the floor. A 28mm x 28mm internal framing locks these various construction elements in place. 


Additional Information

All of the parts and fixtures needed to assemble your shed at home are included with your flat-packed shed. Detailed and easy-to-follow instructions are also included. A 15-year anti-rot guarantee is provided by the manufacturer, assuming you follow the basic guidelines for looking after your shed with some care. We predict it will take one or two days to complete your shed, and it will be far easier with an extra pair of hands.
