Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this shed fairs across the market.

Cladding

Great, our experts say most of the cladding options used are among the best.

The shiplap tongue & groove cladding(walls) used here is one of the best forms of construction for shed walls out of the 2 types [2] we’ve identified on same-size sheds, that you’ll also see getting used on 31% (1,373 of 4,360) of all sheds analysed [3], as well as being used on 42% (185 of 436) of the top 10% of sheds [4]. Even though the Expert Score of this particular shed is 5 points below that of the average shiplap tongue & groove clad 26′ x 13’s (they have an average Expert Score of 85), with it being on 42% of the top 10%, its use here is a reassuring sign of a high quality cladding. You’ll also find the shiplap tongue & groove cladding showing up on 67% of 26′ x 13′ sheds (37 in total) [5].

The walls are 12mm thick and we rate this the best thickness out of the 5 found on same-size sheds [6]. It is used on 54% of all sheds [7] and is also used across 58% of the top 10% of sheds [8] we analysed. Even though the Expert Score of this particular shed is 7 points below the average 12mm clad 26′ x 13’s score of 87, the fact that 58% of the top 10% use a cladding this thick is reassuring as a sign of quality. 82% of 26′ x 13′ sheds (45 in total) use 12mm thick walls [9].

While you’ll find that the Expert Score of this shed is 7 points lower than the average for 26′ x 13’s that use osb roof material (80 vs the average of 87), you can be sure it’s not due to the roofing as this one of the highest scoring materials found on 26′ x 13′ sheds. 53% of 26′ x 13′ sheds (29 in total) use osb construction for the roof.

A 11mm thick roof boarding was used on this shed which is an about average thickness used for a roofing material out of 5 thicknesses identified on same-size sheds [11]. It’s used on 5% of all sheds with a further analysis of the top 10% of sheds (436 in total) showing us that none of them use a roof of this thickness. 53% of 26′ x 13′ sheds (29 in total) use a 11mm thick roof boarding.

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 1 sheds that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

1. Pressure Treated: Considered the most durable wood treatment, this is where the wood undergoes a process called tanalisation. This is where the timber is submerged in specialist wood preservatives (such as Tanalith E, this is actually the origin of the word ‘tanalisation’), this is a unique combination of copper and organic biocide ingredients (it is the copper that gives the finished wood the slightly green colour). The wood then goes into a high pressure vacuum tank (the Wood Protection Association has a good article/video on this) to draw out excess moisture and air and force in the preservatives.

This deep penetration of the exterior wood protects it from the elements and all forms of insect attack. Wood treated this way can last many years without being re-treated. The BS 8417 code of practice (this advises on the choice of timber species and the use and application of wood preservatives) says “ penetration to either 6 mm (15 years) or 12mm (for 30 years) has to be achieved in any exposed surface in sawn material.”

It is also worth noting that if cross cutting, notching or boring treated timber during or after installation, ALWAYS apply an end grain solvent-based (or oil-based) wood preservative treatment to the freshly exposed areas, this will maintain the integrity of the protection. NEVER put cut ends in the ground, even if end grain coated.
