When security and light are top of your list of features for a new shed, the 8 x 6 Mercia Security Shiplap Apex Shed, appeals to customers who are looking for an alternative to a windowless shed, the windows are small yet effective with the amount of light that they let in.  This shiplap shed provides an excellent amount of space for all your garden essentials, and its apex style roof provides more height giving easy access to those larger items. Its flexible design means that you can choose to have the security windows on either of the 8ft depth during construction. This will allow you to build the shed that best suits your garden space, by taking advantage of the direct sunlight.

The walls of this shed use an excellent 12mm shiplap cladding with a tongue and groove construction. This style of cladding is top of its class when it comes to shed construction. The shiplap board profile encourages water run-off. The roof and floor are also made from 12mm interlocking tongue and groove boards - a quality feature that is seldom seen in sheds in this price bracket, and ensures you have a roof that provides excellent weather protection and a floor with an impressive load capacity. You will also receive good quality mineral roofing felt with your shed to provide an additional barrier to the outdoors.

The shed features two fixed security windows, allowing just the right amount of natural light. These are glazed in shatterproof styrene for optimal safety and represent a safe alternative to traditional glass glazing. The single door features tamper-proof hasp and staple and galvanised steel pad bolt, to which your own padlock can be added. A robust timber framing gives the building extra strength and (in addition to a 10 year anti-rot guarantee) means you can be sure your shed will stand up to the test of time.

Though this product is dip-treated and comes with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee, this treatment only covers the item for transport purposes. We want you to enjoy your new garden shed for many years to come, and in order to do so, we recommend that you treat your shed as soon as possible after installation with a preservative and waterproofing topcoat to ensure it is protected from the elements. With consistent annual treatment, this shed will maintain its high-quality finish and also retain the 10-year anti-rot guarantee. This Mercia Shiplap Shed also includes a 1-year manufacturer’s guarantee as standard.

We’re proud to stock a wide range of Protek Royal Exterior paint in over 60 colours to perfectly customise your Mercia Shed to suit your style.

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.
