Let’s take a closer look at the features of this workshop and you can benefit from the many perks of owning a 20 x 10 tongue and groove modular workshop. Since you’re going to have to spend quite a bit to get your hands on this building, it’s only fair that you get a extensive review about the product before you buy it.
Shed Type and Roof Size
This is the largest workshop available in this range and can be used as a shed or a workshop. The apex roof, measuring 2.56m in height, has been designed in a way that won’t let rain water stand. The upside down v-shape ensures that all the rain water runs down. The 1.84m tall eaves and the tall roof make for plenty of headspace. Now you can move around the shed easily, without fear of bumping your head on the hanging tools.
A heavy duty mineral felt protects the roof against damage. You can also upgrade to the Superior Duty felt to keep the shed from harm during harsh weather. Just think of the extra cost as an investment that’ll give you added peace of mind.
The shed measures 3.05m in width, 6.02m in depth and its doors measures 1,770m in height and 1,116m in width.
Cladding, Frame and Floor
The shed is clad with a 12mm thick interlocking tongue and groove boards- the most expensive and durable cladding available in the market. It ensures that the shed can bear extreme changes in weather. The boards can easily expand without damaging the structure because the cladding leaves room between the boards and makes it less likely to warp.
Extra rounded and double frame corners make the structure more sturdy and stable. The internal framing is planed and rounded so that you don’t get any splinters. This also makes the shed resistant to moisture that keeps it dry. Floor joists are made using planed timber so as to provide support to the base. You can also upgrade to Extra strength floor support pack for additional strength and stability.
Treatment Requirements and Warranty
The 10-year anti-rot warranty can only be availed if the shed is treated according to the instructions provided, so make sure that you do so. The shed must be treated with a high quality, spirit based, timber preservative that can protect the shed from weathering.
You will need to apply the first treatment after constructing the shed and then just follow the instructions for further treatment sessions.
Doors and Windows
The large double doors enable you to move around the shed without bumping into stuff along the way. Or you can use the side door. A special rim lock serves to keep your equipment secure.
The 4 windows are glazed with styrene to give them a professional finish. They are the source of natural light. The next time you work in your shed, you won’t need a flashlight. Open up the windows and large double doors and you are all set to work.
Security and Privacy
A rim lock is included that ensures that your shed is secure, although the windows do leave all your stuff visible. If it is superior security that you are looking for, then we would recommend a windowless modular work shed.
Customisation Options and Extras
The window panel can be placed on either sides of the building. This allows you to place the shed anywhere you like, even against a wall, as long as the windows are placed on the free side.
The professionals at Waltons have worked hard to ensure that you get a building that is safe, secure and durable.
Longevity Of The Materials 8/10
Periodic treatments enable the shed to easily withstand the tests of weather. You can also upgrade to the extra strength floor support pack and the superior duty mineral felt.
The spacious interior provides plenty of space to store bulky machinery and the tall eaves enable you to accommodate tall tools as well.
Ease Of Installation 7.5/10
The large shed requires heavy labor to construct it properly. Doing it alone is unwise– it’s advisable that at least 2 people put it together. Although the instructions are well detailed – this makes the things a bit easier. Or you can avail Home Installation Service and have the professionals at Waltons take care of the installation.
The building has a sturdy structure which makes it great value for money. But its periodical treatment requirements make it more costly.
Final Thoughts: The price might be a bit high but this shed has been made using high quality timber and comes with plenty of features that make the cost more than justified. All the materials used are durable and have exceptionally high standards so you can have peace of mind. It does take some time and effort to construct, but rest assured that this shed comes from the industry’s leading manufacturers and is definitely a worthwhile purchase.Perhaps its best feature is its spacious interior that is perfect to store large items like sports and gardening material. Overall, we do recommend this shed even though it costs more.
