Keep many items safe from the elements with the 8 x 6 Mercia Shiplap Apex Windowless Shed, a garden building that relies on a sturdy 12mm shiplap timber cladding to protect your belongings. Despite the impressive construction and quality of materials used in this shed, elbec's price is affordable and makes this a great value shed. 



The windowless design of this shed is well-suited to those who want to keep items out of view, and shows off the top quality timber used in the cladding. The 12mm cladding that appears in all the walls of the 8 x 6 Mercia Shiplap Apex Windowless Shed features timber boards that are tightly interlocked to protect the interior from the elements. This pairs well with a slight shiplap  curve on the timber boards when it comes to diverting rainfall. 

Mercia's cladding has already been pressure-treated to give it a good level of protection against rot or insect infestation upon delivery, but we always recommend applying a wood preservative as a beneficial next step. Protek wood paint is available to order through elbec with this shed, and comes in a wide range of colours to show off your gorgeous shiplap timber cladding. This is a strong first step when it comes to caring for your timber and making sure your 15-year anti-rot guarantee on rot remains valid. 

Elsewhere, materials are chosen to give you a reliable shed while keeping down costs and saving your hard-earned cash in the process. 8mm oriented strand board is used in both the floor and roof of this shed, and does the job perfectly thanks to its water resistant properties and rugged strength. Floor joists beneath the floor ensure it has the strength needed to store heavier objects, whereas the mineral roofing felt that covers the roof helps protect the material and gives the shed that classic felted look. 

Internal framing is also included in this shed, with 28mm x 28mm timber that gives it all the structural integrity needed to last many years.


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.

Booking Delivery

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. 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 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.
