This 8ft x 6ft Pressure Treated Overlap Garden Shed from Mercia has been designed to provide the best value for money possoble, without compromising on quality. The walls of this garden building are constructed using pressure treated timber boards that overlap each other and are nailed to 1” x 1” internal framing, forming a strong and hard-wearing finish. The overlap cladding promotes the run-off of water, helping to keep the interior protected from the elements. Styrene glazed windows, which can be located on either side, offer welcome natural light for the interior.

The pressure treatment process ensures your building has added protection against rot, fungal attack and decay. This process also gives your building an impressive 15-year anti-rot guarantee! The roof and floor are formed using solid sheet board, ensuring a strong build that is perfect for general use and storage. The apex roof style provides generous headroom inside, perfect for storing taller items such as ladders and strimmers. Robust roofing felt is supplied as standard, to give your building an additional weather barrier. High-grade fixtures and fittings are provided with your building, including turn buttons to keep the door of your shed closed when not in use.

Your 8 x 6 Mercia Pressure Treated Overlap Apex shed will arrive flat-packed with every part and fixture needed to assemble it at home. A detailed instruction manual is included and will guide those with less DIY experience to their goal of a complete garden building. Your amount of previous experience with similar projects will dictate the length of time it takes to finish the shed, but most customers take one or two days to do so. Enlisting the help of an extra pair of hands is strongly advised when building your shed.

The pressure treatment process not only protects your building against insect attack and natural decay, it also keeps it looking fresh! Our manufacturer highly recommends a waterproof treatment upon construction and treatment annually thereafter is required. This building must be constructed on a firm level base such as concrete, concrete slabs or a wooden base. Closely follow the care instructions for the shed provided by Mercia to make sure your anti-rot guarantee is valid for the full 15 years of coverage.

You will be required to book your delivery date at the time of placing your order. 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 post code 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 Mercia's delivery portal where you'll be able to track your order.

Please note: Mercia Metal and Mercia Plastic 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 and Plastic sheds is identified on the product page above. Lead times are in working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays.

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 un-safe 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.
