Timber - You will be impressed by the use of natural products and the environmental credentials used on this Professional shed. A high quality timber garden building starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used for your garden shed. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all our professional garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce and is sourced from Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. The timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British timber, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far less knots and warping occurring. The timber used on the Professional garden buildings is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers used on garden sheds. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies who always look to produce the best garden sheds.

Walls - Specially designed pine shiplap tongue and groove cladding of 12mm x 120mm produces a shed that is not just durable but also looks great in your garden. Also our planed tongue and groove shiplap cladding design closes the pores and together with its curved profile promotes the run-off of water making the shed more water resistant.

Frame - A robust planed 34mm x 34mm (1 1/3' x 1 1/3') framework (walls and floor) it's the framework of a garden shed that gives the building its strength.

Please Note: There is also the option to have a Tongue and Groove Pine Log Pattern 19mm x 114mm wall finish

Floor - The floor is manufactured from high quality 12mm x 120mm planed pine tongue and groove matching pattern boarding on 34mm x 34mm (1 1/3' x 1 1/3') joists.

Roof - The roof is manufactured from high quality 12mm x 120mm planed pine tongue and groove matching pattern boarding. Tongue and Groove roof provides better insulation and gives a smarter finish. Roofing felt is supplied as standard.

Windows - The opening shed windows are glazed with 3mm Horticultural Glass. The glass is retained by profiled beading which is pre-mitred (no awkward corners to be cut). All windows use one of the strongest joints in woodwork, they are properly morticed and tenoned profiled and weather resistant. The windows are supplied with factory fitted window frame(s) for quick and easy assembly when delivered.

Doors - The door is fully ledged, braced and framed for extra strength and security. It is also factory fitted for quick and easy assembly.

IMPORTANT: As a security measure the doors is robustly constructed and fitted with concealed full length piano hinges on the right. The 'Piano' hinges not only makes the door secure but incredibly strong with the added benefit of not being visible from the outside provides extra security for the shed and offers a better looking shed. The piano hinges also give a smoother operation as they are less likely to get wet. The doors are pre-hung at the factory for quick and easy assembly when delivered.

Treatment - The Shire Professional Garden Sheds are supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water based industrial product (colour can vary from the picture shown). The manufacturer recommends that you apply a top coat of your choice. This will protect the timber from weathering on your shed making it last longer and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to the manufacturer's instructions.

If you cancel your order at any time after production has commenced you will be liable for the cost of work in progress to date of cancellation. If you cancel an order after it has been despatched you will be liable for the cost of the building and the cost of return unless in the unlikely event the building is faulty.
