The 8 x 6 Pressure Treated Shiplap Apex Shed from Mercia is a fantastic option for those looking to add an attractive garden building to their outdoor space without sacrificing on functionality. The apex roof allows for ample headroom, so making the use of the building is less claustrophobic whilst allowing the storage of large items, such as ladders or long-handled garden tools.

The premium feel of this building is enhanced by the choice of cladding material. The building's walls are made using premium horizontal interlocking tongue and groove boards with a shiplap profile. The classic shiplap profile includes a protective and aesthetically pleasing lip to create a strong, weatherproof panel. The building itself is made in the UK using ethically sourced FSC pressure treated timber. The process of pressure treatment forces a high-quality preservative deep into the fibres of the wood to help protect your building and ensure it lasts.

The roof and floor are made of solid sheet board, a durable material that is perfect for day to day use. Robust roofing felt, fixtures and fittings are all supplied as standard, alongside our detailed instructions and manufacturer’s recommendations to ensure a simple, stress-free assembly process. All of our buildings come with an anti-Rot guarantee, to ensure that your garden building looks great and lasts the test of time. This building shed comes with a conditional 15-year anti-rot guarantee as well as a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty. Annual re-treatment is required to maintain your building and the Anti-rot guarantee – you will find all the care guidelines you need in the instructions provided.

This shed is supplied pressure treated, which provides excellent longevity to the timber. However, annual re-treatment is outlined in the manufacturer’s care guidelines to maintain the validity of the 15 year anti-rot guarantee.

If you would like any extra details, feel free to email us to discuss your order and our full range of product options, or better still, give us a call so we can find the perfect garden building to suit your needs.

Alternatively, why not visit us at our Brookfields Garden Centre showsite near Nottingham?
