Wooden Sheds


Our wooden sheds come in two distinct styles of cladding, each with their own key features. The advantage of Overlap Cladding is that it is a much simpler construction, which enable our manufacturers to keep their prices very low. If you are looking for a simple storage shed, Overlap Cladding will provide all the protection you require to safely store more durable items such as gardening equipment and tools, outdoor furniture

Overlap Cladding involves each individual board overlapping the one below to keep the weather out and provide a secure place for garden storage. The simplicity of the design allows overlap buildings to be produced at very low prices, ensuring they are a fantastic option for storing more durable items such as gardening tools and outdoor furniture. The simple design means that if you are looking for a shed that you are likely to spend time working in, you are unlikely to find an overlap shed comfortable enough.

Tongue and Groove Cladding involves each board having a groove on its bottom edge and a tongue on its top edge, this allows all the board of a panel to slot together, giving far more protection against wind and draughts and making tongue and groove sheds more suitable for use as workshops and similar buildings that you might want to spend more time in.

The majority of our tongue and groove cladding is referred to as Shiplap Tongue and Groove, this is because as well as having the standard tongue and groove on each board to allow them to slot together, the profile of the individual boards is shaped to aid water run-off. This helps to reduce weathering on the boards by limiting the amount of moisture they are exposed to.

Roofs and Floors

All of our wooden sheds include a floor and there are two main styles, Oriented Strand Board or Tongue and Groove. Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is made by using adhesives and compressing flakes of wood together. Regularly used in the construction industry, OSB provides a strong and durable product while also helping to keep the selling price down.

Many sheds that feature tongue and groove cladding for the walls also use tongue and groove boarding for the floor and/or roof. The boards have a groove on one edge and a tongue on the other to allow them to slot together, this provides a solid and durable floor or roof while also helping to provide and attractive interior to the building.


When deciding which particular wooden shed is right for you, the framework is an area that you should pay particular attention to. The framework provides the strength to the building and therefore when deciding between two or three different sheds you will often find that comparing the framework specifications provides a good idea of which building is the sturdiest and best value.


Generally, buildings will come with either horticultural glass or styrene for the windows with horticultural glazing having been the most popular for a long time, as many people prefer the appearance of glass to the plastic alternatives. Over the last few years, improvements in the quality of styrene glazing in terms of clarity having led to it becoming a far more popular material, particularly when combined with the added safety feature of it being far more difficult to break. For higher specification sheds there is often also the option of toughened glass, this provides great clarity in a more durable glazing material to make it the top end of the market for garden buildings.
