Let’s take a closer look at the features of this shed and how you can benefit from the many perks of owning the 6 x 4 tongue and groove apex garden shed.
Shed Type & Roof Size
This is one the most popular sheds in the manufacturer’s range of storage sheds, coming with a traditional style that gives a pleasant look to your garden. The apex roof measuring 1.85m in height, keeps the shed clean and dry. The rainwater easily runs down the sides. The 1.57m tall eaves add value to the building and headspace to the interior. Hang your tools from the roof without fear of bumping into them.
Mineral roofing felt protects the building from winter weather. The roof itself is made of (Oriented Strand Board) OSB. These boards are hardwearing and provide stability to the structure. You can be carefree because they provide excellent moisture resistance. So no worries about knots or voids. You can also upgrade to the Superior Duty felt for extra protection. The investment will result in added peace of mind.
The shed measures 1.17m in width and 1.75m in depth, and its doors measures 1.66m in height and 0.74m in width.
Cladding, Frame & Floor
The shed is clad with 12mm thick tongue and groove boards. You are getting the most expensive and durable cladding in the market, at a very reasonable price. Since the boards are interlocked, they can easily expand and contract, adapting to the current weather condition. The process takes place without posing any threat to the structure and so the shed is less likely to warp. You are getting a shed that is extreme weather resistant and is warp-free too.
The garden shed features double-framed corners for added strength and stability. The floor is included with this shed but you can upgrade to an extra strength Floor Support Pack. It provides additional support to the base of your shed so you can easily store heavy boxes and bulky equipment. It not only helps extend the life of our shed but also comes as the cheapest and easiest way to strengthen the floor. You may need to trim the length a bit.
Treatment Requirement & Warranty
Although the garden shed comes with a 10-year anti-rot warranty, it can only be availed if the building is treated with a timber preservative. A detailed manual describes the process and its frequency. Manufacturers recommend that a spirit-based preservative be used to qualify for the warranty.
You should apply the first treatment after you finish constructing the shed. Following treatments must be done as per the instructions in the manual. The treatment will not only protect the shed from water damage but will also provide a clean and professional finish.
Doors & Windows
A single door provides access to the interior of the shed. It measures 0.74m in width and 1.66m in height. A turn button (butterfly) catch serves to keep your tools and equipment secure.
The large windows come glazed with ‘Styrene’ and are tougher than conventional glass windows. They will keep the shed bright with light during the daytime. This way you save time and effort of installing a light fixture.
Security & Privacy
A Turn button (butterfly) catch is included and you can always fix a Weatherproof Padlock to secure your items when you are not home. But the large windows can be of disadvantage here. So we would recommend a windowless garden shed, if superior security and privacy is what you require.
The manufacturers have included an option of repositionable windows. You can place the window on either side of the building, which gives you the freedom of placing the shed anywhere you want.
The professionals at Waltons have worked hard to ensure that you get a building that is safe, secure and durable.
Longevity Of Materials 7.5/10
High quality water based preservative is used to treat the shed. This protects the shed during transit. Periodic treatments are required so that the shed can withstand tests of weather. You can also upgrade to the extra strength floor support pack and the superior duty mineral felt.
The shed does provide enough space to store your gardening tools. But if you want to store bulky equipments it better to get a bigger shed.
Ease Of Installation 7.5/10
The shed seems small but it still requires 2 people to build it. The manual is provided to assist you during the construction process. Or you can avail Home Installation Service and have the professionals at Waltons take care of the installation.
The shed comes at a low price but provides all the benefits of owning a garden shed. Be assured that you’re getting a product that will last years longer than any ordinary shed.
