6 x 6 Waltons Premium Shiplap Double Door Apex Shed – Our first impressions
On first inspection, it’s easy to see that this shed is designed to a very high standard. It isn’t your typical basic shed. Made with Shiplap cladding, it has an extremely durable design and comes with a very strong structure. We love the traditional apex roof which not only has a modern style, but which also allows rainwater to run down onto the ground, preventing damage and lengthening the life of the shed. It offers a great amount of space and the apex roof also provides maximum interior height.

6 x 6 Waltons Premium Shiplap Double Door Apex Shed: Safety
There are quite a few great safety features included with this model. We especially like the safety features of the windows. Not only are they 100% shatterproof, but the catches are a nice addition which help to provide a professional and safe finish. It is small details like this that really make the shed stand out from a lot of the competition. The included lock also deters thieves. As it does have a window, valuable items can be seen if they aren’t covered up. This is something you should keep in mind if you do decide to invest in this model.
6 x 6 Waltons Premium Shiplap Double Door Apex Shed: Ease of Assembly
You should find the shed pretty straightforward to assemble. However, the boards are fairly heavy so this is something you need to take into account. We recommend that two people assemble the shed. It will take at least 2-3 hours to construct. The included instructions are very easy to follow so even if you haven’t assembled a shed before you should find it a piece of cake.
6 x 6 Waltons Premium Shiplap Double Door Apex Shed: Extras
Numerous extras are available to help you improve the safety and security of the shed. These include:
- Yale Super Durable Deluxe Shed Alarm Security Kit
- 49mm weatherproof lock with hasp and staple

6 x 6 Waltons Premium Shiplap Double Door Apex Shed: Pros and cons
The main advantage of this shed has to be its high quality, durable design. It is really built to last which means you are getting great value for money. The included lock ensures you can keep out young children and potential thieves and you also have the option of investing in a more powerful lock as an extra. The wide double doors are also an advantage that you don’t often find with this sized shed. They make it much easier to move larger or more bulky items in and out of the shed.
One downside that the manufacturer doesn’t make very clear is that the 10 year anti-rot guarantee doesn’t apply if you don’t treat the shed with a high quality preservative. This needs to be done either before you assemble the shed or straight afterwards. You also need to continue to treat it with the same preservative in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
6 x 6 Waltons Premium Shiplap Double Door Apex Shed: Conclusion
If a simple, basic shed won’t do then this premium model is definitely one to consider. We love its attractive design and excellent range of features. Easy to build and designed to last at least 10 years, it provides exceptional value for money.
