Why would I want a pressure-treated shed?
The primary benefit of buying pressure treated sheds is that you won't need to apply a preservative coating each year. Many people tend to like the look of the natural timbers, which pressure treatment allows. That said you can, of course, apply a decorative treatment at any time to change the look of your shed.
How does the process of pressure treating wood work?
The process of pressure treatment works by forcing preservative deep within the grain of the timbers. This is achieved by placing the wooden timbers into a sealed cylinder containing the wood preservatives and applying pressure. A vacuum is then used to remove any excess preservative. The process allows for high absorption and uniform penetration of the preservative throughout the wood. Many of our pressure treated products feature a 15 year anti-rot and fungal decay guarantee.
Shed Roof Styles Explained
If you're after more headroom in your shed, then our apex sheds are for you. The high, sloping eaves make it easier to stand in and give more storage space; when it rains, the sloping eaves will ensure that water runs off and doesn't accumulate. This limits potential water damage and rot. This classic roof shape is very popular and how most traditional sheds are configured. This style is both attractive and practical.
On the other hand, our pent sheds have single panel roofs which slope away from the door-side of the shed. This acts to deflect water rapidly off the top of the shed; since the water drains off the roof with ease, the potential for leaks and timber decay is reduced. If you're after something different, then this unique and compact design is for you and would make an attractive alternative in your garden.
